Picolit (Doomsday Wine for Hurricane Irene) – Drink Bravely with Mark Oldman – Episode 51

Heeding the dire warnings of weather forecasters, Mark assembles an emergency kit for Hurricane Irene, including in it a selection that qualifies as a “doomsday wine”. Watch as he braves Irene’s cyclonic forces to introduce you to Picolit, a lush, little-known dessert wine from the Friuli region in Italy’s northeast. It is perfect for when you want not only to “drink bravely” but also “drink succulently”.
