Pick your favorite wines of 2014 and win a prize!
Like the start of every year, we at IWCoK like to reflect on the previous year. 2014 was hectic. New job, never home, two teenagers to feed and appease, lots of travel, garden destroying dog, crap the Euro going up again, etc etc. I am sure each one of you have your own version of the same. Indeed, it isn’t easy for any of us.
When it came to wine last year, we had the chance to sample 90 different wines from 11 different countries. They came from all over Europe including new member countries Romania and Bulgaria, and also north and south America. This is the variety we have come to expect and will definitely be on the agenda for the years to come.
So now it is your turn to select your candidate for the BEST WINE of 2014.
Everyone sending in their pick will be entered into our GRAND PRIZE draw to get their chance to win a bottle of my favorite Bordeaux blend of 2010 – Kometa from the makers of No Man’s Land in Bulgaria. Trust me – very, very good stuff.
So to jog your memories, here is a little help:
- January – Hungarian wines from Jackfall and Kolonics. Theri Cabernet Sauvignon and Juhfark were hot candidates
- February – We went back to Agentina and Chile. Cabernet Sauvignon Reserva DON DAVID was a hot favorite and Decanter gold medal winner
- March– Carnival month with wines from Spain, Italy and Hungary. Chianti Terre di Popiano was one that we re-ordered a number of times
- April – This was the month dominated by the big Macedonian reds. Akrato merlot from Dudin is one of my top pics
- May – This was all SPanish flavor with different Verdejo and Tempranillos
- June – We brought back some great wines from Romania including the Solo Quinto. A full oak aged Chardonnay that we can not forget.
- July – Yes- wines from Kosor! Eno wines presented their Sangiovese from Abbadia Ardenga and the Tuscan Merlot from Philarmonica.
- August – Lets make this easy – VINHO VERDE :-)
- September – Bulgaria month with 2 new wines from No Mans Land. 600 and Buteo
- October – Sardinian wines from our friend Ichnusa Botega Bistro. Vermentino and Cannonau, yum.
- November – our Back to the biginning box with guest Roberto Bosticco. A mix of the basic grapes from across the globe
- December – The fancy French CHristmas box with the hit Prignac from Medoc and the cuvee from Château Florie Aude
