Every year that we I have attended the Boston Wine Expo, I have found different items that are new and pleasing to my palate. In previous years, there have been the baked goods of Sweet Santangelo’s, Farnum Hill Hard Cider, and Tillen Farms pickled vegetables. This year the fine tradition of flavorful delights continued.
My favorite food discovery at this year’s Expo was To Die For Dips. These wonderfully delicious dips created by Margaret Hammill were my favorite snack at the show. With a plethora of options from cheese to chocolate to Alaskan pasta salad, the choice should have been difficult. However, with one bite of Blue Cheese Dates & Pecans dip, I had found my must-eat snack. Return to Think Tasty in the coming weeks to learn more about this company.
Being a wine expo, there were almost two thousand wines to sample. Obviously, I didn’t taste even a fraction of them, but of the wines I tried, there were a few that were quite memorable. Turtle Creek Wine from Massachusetts provided some of the best local wine I have sampled recently. Producing 900 cases each year, this small scale winery does a fabulous job. Another wine of note was Piera Martellozzo’s Blu Giavello line. The four wines in this line are all sparkling, which makes them even more endearing. Each of these wines had a varying amount of sweetness but all were light on the palate, which created a wonderful tasting. These wineries will be profiled on our beverage publication, Parched No More, in the next month.
The quick summary to the Boston Wine Expo: fabulous. For an afternoon that delights your tastebuds, make sure you attend this event next year.
