The Wines of Abruzzo and Molise

Abruzzo and Molise are typically grouped together but in fact have very different histories, topographies and wines. Most consumers have little in-depth knowledge of the wines of these two regions, as not much has been written specifically about them; even experts tend to refer to these wines in generic terms.

State Bird Provisions, San Francisco

Since opening on the last day of 2011, State Bird Provisions has been surrounded by relentless buzz. After several failed last minute attempts to make a reservation, I finally bit the bullet and planned two months ahead to secure a table.

2014 Fairview Viognier Paarl ($20) 89 points

2014 Fairview Viognier Paarl, 89 points

This distinctly laid-back, understated Viognier - Fairview has been picking these vines earlier in recent years - eschews exotic peach and apricot ripeness for dusty citrus peel, subtle florality and a hint of oak. Smooth, dry and food-friendly, it finishes with firm shape and good grip. (ST)
