Episode 41 – A New Grape: Furmint!

Episode 41 – A New Grape: Furmint! Episode 41 – A New Grape: Furmint!

#HappyFriday! #ItsWineTime! On this episode we’re learning about a new grape, Furmint! A grape typically from Hungary, and often times a dessert wine, this is a first time experience for Shelley and Phil. We had to special order both of these wines so the liklihood of you tasting through these wines with us is not likely, unless you play it back. If you can find this grape, go for it. It could be dry, sweet or somewhere in between. #FermintDay is Monday, February 1st so find a bottle, give it a go and expand your horizons!
