Mixed Case 4 Bottle 2 – LoHud Wine of the Week: Prosecco ‘Extra Dry’ Cima de Conegliano


For 12 weeks, we feature a wine, and include tasting notes and suggestions for pairings. At the end of the 12 weeks, we’ll review our Mixed Case, and recap the choices. Each mixed case will be chosen by a local wine shop owner, who will also become our wine expert-in-residence during his or her tenure. (So should we need recommendations for a holiday, for example. we’ll ask.) We’ll get a new expert for each case. Right now, we’re working on our Mixed Case chosen by Jeffrey Wooddy, manager of Rochambeau Wines & Liquors in Dobbs Ferry..

LoHud Wine of the Week

Prosecco ‘Extra Dry’ Cima de Conegliano: So much more stylish than, well, all other Proseccos, this wine very clean, subtle notes and a creamy mousse. Dry finish. Region: Veneto, Italy. Price: $19.99. Goes with: Friends, neighbors, family and absolutely any kind of finger food. Why I chose it: It is the week before Christmas and everyone is busy but the days are festive, too. Have a few bottles of this on hand whenever people come to visit.

This is bottle 2 in our series.
