Brad's Wine Subscription Tasting Notes - October 2021
”I have been inspired to work with small, family-owned wineries because in my experience, they produce the best value wines that you can find. These wines are hand-crafted - they have a story about where they are from and how they are made - and it is these wines that I send out every month to our subscribers, wines with beautiful details that I enjoy sharing with people."
October 2021 Free Gift . Sash & Fritz Vodka
This month, we are giving away Sash & Fritz – that’s German vodka combining Russian tradition with German precision and perfection. Only the best, carefully selected ingredients, 100% German wheat and clear spring water from the Ore Mountains, are processed into top-quality vodka. The result: vodka at the highest level, with recognisable aromas of grain and yellow fruits, as well as a very subtle yet easily perceptible sweetness. No unnecessary processes or additions!
