How to send you tastebuds on vacation ⛵️ to crabby bliss while never leaving your place? Use Goldbelly to ship in an iconic dish from across America, like I did with the plump, pure Chesapeake Bay crab cakes 🦀 from The Narrows Restaurant in Maryland. Then pair it with the perfect wine: the rich but clean, vanilla-citrus-pineapple Beringer Vineyards Chardonnay Private Reserve (Napa, $35) ✨. \

By popular demand and for betterment of your bunker, I am doing a FREE, fun, and unbiased virtual wine tasting: “Killer, Under-$20 Wine” (plus Q&A)”. This will kick off my “Wine for Your Bunker LIVE” Series. The tasting is Wednesday, May 6th at 8pm ET/5PM PT.
So bring your own bottle, OR taste along with the exact wines that I will be presenting (though this is not a prerequisite).
The virtual wine tasting’s three wines are listed below and available for purchase at Wine.com.
Shipping from Wine.com typically takes 1-2 days, though some destinations will be longer. There are date-specific delivery options for your shipment on the final page of checkout.
We expect this virtual wine tasting to fill up fast 🐇. Please register while seats last.
And speaking of the Ferrari Winery mentioned above, you might want to check out this video I did with Ferrari’s top-of-the-line wine and Champagne coupes that Kate Moss had molded on her left breast (for real). Fancier and better made than Prosecco, they and other Trento DOC wines are a fabulous value at all price points. You can often taste an alpine freshness in these Italian bubblies – which fits wine that comes from the Dolomites — that is, the Italian Alps.
Please be sure to check MarkOldman.com and also my social media channels for additional virtual wine tastings.
