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.

2011 Villa Maria “Cellar Selection” Sauvignon Blanc, Marlborough, New Zealand $20
Villa Maria is celebrating its 50th vintage of making wine, which puts it at the top of the pioneer pack in New Zealand. This aromatic, citrus-laden white is snappingly crisp yet pleasantly full-bodied. Ideal with fresh cheeses, lighter fish dishes laced with lemon, and salads.

2010 Handcraft Pinot Noir, California $12
From well-known California winery owner, Cheryl Indelicato, this easy-sipping wine is primarily Pinot Noir with a dash of other red grapes. Smooth and juicy, this is a wine to drink as a cocktail or pair with just about any kind of food from fish to fowl. The sales of Handcraft wines also support Breast Cancer awareness so do good while drinking well.
