Chris Rasco, our food and beverage director, and I made our highly anticipated trip to Richmond this week for the Country Vintner Wine Show.  Thanks to our gracious guest, Scott Drake, we were shuttled in style to our destination.  This is the premiere wine event of the season.  This is one of the select wine shows that have the actual wine makers and winery owners in person rather than a sales rep.  It is a golden opportunity to meet these legends in the business and pick their brains a bit.  It is literally a who’s who of the wine making industry.  I was lucky enough to get this photo of  Andrea Fossi and a friend.  You may recognize his name by the beautiful 1999 Chianti Classico that we carry here at Olde Mill.  Andrea proudly mentions that it is his grandfather’s portrait on the bottle.  Andrea is a third generation wine maker.  He is very proud of his family and their heritage.  We are offering one of Fossi’s delicious white wines this year, the Annalisa Soave.  This is so perfect for our cuisine with all the great seafood and salads we offer all summer long.  Come up and try a glass, or bottle, of this delicious wine and get in a summer frame of mind.  The deck awaits you!
