Another Carignane Evangelical Goes On A Mission!

It is with great pleasure, pride, and excitement that I celebrate another voice in the great Carignane mission; enter Chiara Shannon, head sommelier at K&L Wine Merchants in Redwood City. Chiara has recently begun writing for the K&L blog, and with one fine missive, she has outed herself as a devout Carignane believer!

You can read her post here.

For those of you who would like to do a little digging into this blog’s own humble history of posts in defense of this oft-unjustly-maligned varietal whose star is in fact very much in the ascendancy (and some other contributions as well!), please feel free to enjoy the following links:
