Drink Frappato. Live Your Life.
🌙We're obsessed with the wines of Sicily. Aren't you? 🌙
From the wildest wines of the magic Mt Etna 🌋to the silkiest prettiest 'perfume over power' wines of our hero @ariannaocchipinti , we want it allllll. And it's so rarely at @thelcbo , WHY!????? 😂👯🍇🔥🌋✨😩 We are THRILLED to pour the incredible wines of Frank Cornelissen for our next party (yessss) and found this yesterday at the King & Spadina store, and although it's by a bigger producer we think Patricia Toth, a winemaker at Planeta, is really cool, so why not? Frappato 🍇 is pretty and silky and perfumed, a delicate sigh, a shy glance, a bit like a Pinot Noir but with a thicker skin, a folk song that's so nice to listen to that sometimes you forget that the lyrics have a backbone of politics and struggle. 🍄 The LCBO website will tell you this (~$26) wine is a 🍷"Red Blend"🍷but it's 💯 percent frappato. GET IT TOGETHER, liquor monopoly from who we're forced to buy all our wine!!! 🙄On my way to NYC to drink all the Sicilian wine 🌋🍷🍇 while Nicole bakes like a little potato in Toronto and stacks boxes and boxes of witchy wine (our favourite lineup yet!?!?) for our party on October 2nd (8 sleeps!!) at @LakeInez. 🍷🌙🍄 We leave you this tasty easy 2 find delight 🔮 for this week's #lcboandu#alwayscastingspells
