Taste the difference a little TLC makes for fine wine.
You hear it so often from people back from a European vacation it’s cliché: “The wine over there is So. Much. Better.” Same deal with the Napa Valley. You just have to go there to appreciate the wine at its source.
Or! You can buy the wine there and then transport it home in a climate-controlled container (monitoring temperatures the whole way, to be sure). Store it in your fridge until you’re ready to drink it.
Sound like a hassle? Really, all you have to do is drive 20 minutes to Pennsauken NJ, or come out Wednesday night to Art & Architecture Happy Hour at St. James the Less, where sommelier Greg Moore presents his tasting table of artisanal European wines.
