What’s Italian for Blossom Hill?

thumb_img_1072_1024

A wine I tried recently was a sparkling Zinfandel rosé from Blossom Hill. Blossom Hill is a massive American wine brand, churning out millions of bottles a year to the wine drinkers of the world. They specialize in crowd pleasers because, let’s be fair, they have to. Problem with crowd pleasers is that they’re usually not that exciting, and usually well avoided by people who are into wine for a few reasons. But this one was a bit different.

Bubbly Lollipop

Not different in terms of taste. It still tasted like a bubbly lollipop. If you’re into that then fair play to you, but it’s not really what I’d go for if I had the choice. But a great party drink, right? When you’re off out and about later on, get a few glasses of chilled, sweet, bubbly candy in you to get you on your way.

Wine of Italy

What was a bit different here was that it had a big “Wine of Italy” on the side of the label. Wine of what, now? Well turns out that Blossom Hill makes this stuff in Piemonte, one of the top quality wine regions in Italy, if not the world. Where do you get Zinfandel in Piemonte?? The grapes are likely grown in Eastern Europe, shipped to Piemonte for processing, and then whacked on the shelf in Tesco for not very much.

Global Brand

The world of a global wine brand, eh? US brand, Italian made, and grapes from…ahem…somewhere. But would you care when you’ve got to get a couple of glasses in you before the taxi arrives?

Cheers

  1. Si I just posted something, and in one second I get a LIKE from you, come on bro, you didn`t´even read it. Was its about? two seconds wifch it would take me to read and I can tell you.
    By the way…… nothing to say 😉

      1. I knew it! I do write them quickly and short, if is too long, then there are a bunch of people I have to read, not that I have too, but I like to read, as I told you everything, that is not poetry, but it could end up in something like that , poetry, It is a learning lesson from me, just goota figure out the angle

  2. And by the way, if you really are reading my crazy post I do really appreciate it, the question would be why in the world are you reading them? Has nothing to do about you blog, although I do have to say that I enjoy reading your posts, they are funny and well written and I learn from them, and also I do write some key things to write in my notebook, for future enlightment sotries.
    Forget about the other comment, love ya,( did I really say love ya, fuck me, sorry) and I did drink some one of your wine……. I think

      1. Yes, It does make sense ( although mine are a bit strange), and I do really appreciate it or better said I fill honourd and that is no bull, I do feel incredible lucky that a person like you (wich is all good by the way) would read my crazy things, do appreciate it, and hope you like more of my “writing”, while I do read some of you writing, it is funny and a learning experience you blog, anyway…. I talked too much, God Bless sir, and I do know you are not an American that says that first part, so I do appreciate it you reading, I have always wonder why in the world would a person like you or for that matter any other person would read my crazy things, so it was nice to hear some kind of explanation, by the way…. I got dumped by the girl I was supposed I was going to be to they, so f…her!
