Famiglia Meschini Wine Review

I am totally stealing from Olives ‘n’ Wine and declaring today wine-day! Who’s with me? Winking smile

This summer, Becky, Melanie and I had the opportunity to meet with Teresa Meschini – owner of Famiglia Meschini Wines!

Over some ah-mazing desserts from Patisserie 46, we learned all about their family owned wine business. They have vineyards and wineries in Argentina and Chile but bring their fabulous wine here to sell locally. I don’t know too much about wines, but thankfully I had Olives ‘n’ Wine with me to do all the questioning. I learned so much from both Becky and Teresa!!

After a great conversation, Teresa was kind enough to give us 4 bottles of wine. Becky ended up with the The Famiglia Meschini Malbec Reserva and the Unoaked Chardonnay. You can see her review of those wines here! And Melanie took the Pinor Noir. To see what she thought of her wine, check it out here.  And I got the Torrontes Premium.

According to Teresa as well as the website, this wine has a little bit of bubbles in it and is a perfect wine to get the party started, to drink with dessert or really anytime! Smile My kind of wine. . .

I never seemed to have a good occasion to open the bottle this summer and then things got busy this fall with selling our house, starting to build the new house, and moving. . . but thankfully, I came across this bottle right before Thanksgiving, and decided that it was the perfect occasion to check it out.

So, total disclaimer, I am not a huge wine drinker. Red wine is way too dry for me, so I prefer white. Add bubbles –> even better! So this wine was right up my alley with a bit of bubbles. It was drier than I was expecting, and also not as sweet. Laura’s boyfriend, Tom, really liked it! And Scott drank 2 glasses of it. I agree with the recommendation that it is a great wine to drink before dinner with appetizers.

Are you a wine drinker? Red or white? My absolute favorite is Asti – sweet and bubbly. Smile

  1. I’m a huge wine lover! Mostly dry reds for me, but I also love a good glass of bubble with some frozen fruit tossed in- you know, to make it healthy 🙂

  2. Sounds right up my ally too 🙂 Not too sweet but not red- we’ll have to give it a shot.

    I’ve become more of wine drinker… When we go out for dinners mostly. White all the way though I did have a great Merlot that was not harsh at all so maybe venturing down that road.. OHH yes Asti is the all time best!

  3. I don’t drink it often, but I do really love a glass of wine once in a while, and I’m about the farthest thing from a “wine snob” – pretty much any glass of red or white is good with me 🙂 Though Riesling and Red Moscato are two that I know will always be delicious!

  4. I love white wine…I guess it shouldn’t come as a surprise that I love anything on the sweeter side!

  5. Am I a wine drinker??! Obviously that question wasn’t pointed toward me 😉 Hehe… I love drier wines and loved FM’s when I had them months ago. Because wine doesn’t last too long in the ONW household! Glad you were able to enjoy it!

  6. Yet another reason for me to move to MN. Wine nights filled with laughter and cupcakes? Yes and yes.

    Miss you lovely friend!

  7. I started liking sweet whites, but after attending wine club on and off for the last year, I now actually like red! White and bubbles is great for celebrating with my girlfriends, but if I want to unwind, I find myself reaching for red more and more.

  8. I do like wine! I prefer white to red only because I like my drinks cold. I also love making sangrias
