Leslie SbroccoMy name is Leslie Sbrocco and I’m the host of Check, Please! Bay Area. Each week, I will be sharing my tasting notes about the wine the guests and I drank on set during the taping of the show. I will also share some wine tips with each episode.

2008 Hearst Ranch “Three Sisters Cuvee,” Paso Robles, California $20
From the folks who bring you Hearst Ranch beef comes a wine that pairs beautifully with a grilled sirloin. A blend of Syrah, Grenache, and Mourvedre, this Rhone-style red is smooth, smoky, and plush. A deliciously affordable sip for those who crave bold.

2010 Breggo Pinot Gris, Anderson Valley, California $25
A superstar when it comes to aromatic whites, Breggo’s Pinot Gris captures the grape’s elusive pale pink hue and couples it with a sumptuous texture. It’s a white for lovers of uniqueness. Serve alongside creamy cheeses, spicy fare, and sushi.
