Day 18-Buccia Reflections of Lake Erie for $10
We are going back to Day 18 since I obviously missed a day and want to make sure we have all the days accounted for even if they are not in order. The story behind the name of this wine, is that the wine growers of the lake erie area of ohio are trying to find a blend of ohio grapes that typify the region. This is Buccia vineyards wine that reflects the grapes of the Lake Erie regions and I guess about 5 other vineyards are also trying to make a blend that typifies the grapes of ther region. It was a medium sweet white table wine at 11% alcohol that would be a good drinking wine as well as wine with food. The best part of this winery was that the owner of the winery set up the bottles in front of us, said take your time and pour yourself and socialized with us for about an hour and half. Buccia Vinyards was by far the most enjoyable tasting experience of the trip. The winery had about 6-8 sweet wines and we came home with 3 of them. Buccia also has a bed and breakfast and if we ever have the time to go back to the area we will stay at their bed and breafast.
