The BSFW blog offers a periodic airing of our staff's observations and musings about things we find in our market and, frankly, can't live without. This is not a dispensing of erudite information from high on the mount; this is us sharing with you the aspects of the fine wine, craft brew and gourmet worlds that pique our interest.
This congenial approach is something we take seriously - so please feel free to comment! Afterall,it's our customers that inspire us to do what we love to do - and do it even better than before at every opportunity.
Most of our customers know there's more to Portugal than just Port or cheap table wines. But today to reinforce this truth, we had a visit from Dao Sul winemaker Lucia Freitas, wine writer Luis Lopes, and Chef Luis Americo, one of Portugual's rising stars and winner of the 2004 Chef of the Year award. This team from the Iberian peninsula is making a tour of the USA, talking wine, gastronomy and terroir with all who care to learn - and taste - what Portuguese wines have to offer the world.
