Utrecht Wijnproeverij Woensdag

wijnproeverij utrechtExcuse me while I do a bit of work promotion.

We’ve got a lot of great wines at Vino Veritas that are only available by the bottle, due to being a bit pricier. That means that many people don’t get around to trying them and we really feel like they’re missing out. So we’ve decided to start doing a wijnproeverij woensdag (winetasting Wedsnesday) once or twice a month, starting this week (29 October). We’re keeping things simple and casual for a mid-week event. We’ll offer samplings of two wines and an accompanying snack and give a bit of information about the wine and highlight different aspects, including how wines can change when paired with food.

We’re starting it all off with two of our personal favorites, a Brunello and a Cannonau. These two reds, one from Tuscany and the other from Sardinia, have received high praise from the industry and from regular consumers and now is your turn to try them. Full details of the wine tasting can be found on the Facebook event page. Reservations are required, but you can reserve your spot through FacebookTwitter, Instagram, in person, or in the comments here. We’re not picky.

The event should only last about one hour, though you’re welcome to stay after it’s over and try some of our other wines. We’ve just added two new wines. We’ve got a Ciliegiolo that is sure to appeal to all of our many customers who love our Negroamaro, and we’ve got a proper Lambrusco that is nothing like the cheap, sweet stuff you are likely to find in the grocery store. This is an elegant, dry Lambrusco that has made a lot of fans in the three days we’ve been serving it. We love it, too.

So come visit us, whether for the wijnproeverij on Wednesday, or just in general. And for everyone who thought our bar was too bright, we have new softer lamps going in today. Speaking of lights, the Biltstraat winter lights went up this weekend and the street is looking quite charming. It’s all getting quite gezellig. Come see for yourself.

High Praise Indeed!

This evenings scene! I had the most delicious wine and plank this evening at @vinoveritas030 on the Biltstraat. Prosecco that tasted like the best champagne, white wine with a hint of tropical flavour soft and not sweet. Matched with a mixed plank and a bread basket. All the product are imported from Italy. The flavours are rich and the bread is warm and light. I could go on and on about this short visit but it was truly the best wine and mixed plank I ever had in Utrecht. I’m a very happy person at this moment.

Explore Utrecht is a great site with lots of information about where to stay in Utrecht and lists and reviews of things to see, do, eat, and buy. I always recommend the site to anyone visiting and to locals, as well. Last night, we at Vino Veritas got a visit from Dainahara and a friend. It was great to finally meet the woman behind the site, but it was a thrill to read her glowing review.

In fact, I’ve been lucky to meet quite a few people I know through Twitter in the past week and will probably meet more in the coming days. Thanks to all for stopping by and for singing our praises, as well. It’s all been truly appreciated.
