I know it’s only Wednesday but its been a long, difficult week for both of us. Right?
So how about a glass of the good stuff, you know what I’m talking about- WINE!🍷
Island Vine Wines
IVW boasts “finely crafted Trinidadian wines using a Polish method handed down by the Osika Family”, meaning every glass you pour was nurtured for that very moment.
With flavours like Sugarcane, PawPaw, Pineapple and even Sparkling Mango (yes you read that correctly), they ensure that every bottle is a unique experience that immediately takes you seaside lounging.
Island Vine ain’t no joke when it comes to doing wine the right way either! These bona-fide winemakers uses only the best equipment, on their Facebook page I quickly learned about an antique authentic French carboy or “demijohn” as commonly called in France which is used in the fermentation process to ensure quality control.
That’s super cool right?
Tucuché Country Wines
Getting its name from the mountain peak sacred to the Amerindians, El Tucuche, for this brand is a symbol of Home. El Tucuche also towers over the winery that crafts what we know as Tucuché Country Wines , so as to say ‘I’m looking over you always,’ and, it gives the purest base, straight from the spring for their wines. Using seasonal and exotic fruits found right here in Trinidad & Tobago, Tucuché is churning out Guava, Pommecythere, Banana, Noni and even Banoni ( I had to google to find out what this was and apparently its is an apple -TCW you can call me out on this if I’m wrong), but you name it and they’re turning it into wine!
Pairing fruits and spices to create the most inviting blend is definitely their forte and asking for another glass is sure to follow. Using warm colours and rich flavours in every bottle, each “enticing bouquet evoke memories and dreams of ancestral times and the vibrant plumage of the hummingbirds” as stated by their story in Facebook!
V Toria Rhonda Winery
Years before it was a winery, this estate was an Orchard with a sprinkling of cocoa and coffee. Today, this 2nd generation wine maker produces some of the finest wines made from our local fruits all her own vineyard and winery. Wine, in her opinion is what brings people together to create new experiences and memories to last a lifetime. These semi-sweet wines are made in Rio- Claro, Trinidad from a variety of tropical fruits and dried grapes (raisins) to create the bold flavours .
Apart from the impressive packaging and flavours the website introduces you to Victoria Wine Club where you can get a 10% discount on your purchases and other exclusive benefits. There’s also a listing here making the bottles even easier to find to entertain at your next lime.
L’eau Pont Winery- Tropical Fruit Wines
Once in a while, I meet wine that makes me go WOW! So imagine, the tangy, tartness of sorrel marrying the rich taste of Port, did you imagine it?
Yeah sounds amazing right?!? Now what if I told you I like neither sorrel, nor Port ( at this point you might be judging me, its okay though) but TFW had me seriously questioning my taste.
This family affair produces flavours like Pommerac, Mango, Banana, Sorrel and Pineapple all from their micro-winery!
Light, refreshing, mellow, elegant all can be used to describe a pour from an L’eau Pont Wine, so how about some wine?
