What’s for Sipper, Amy Atwood?

Amy Atwood is one of my favorite LA wine people. Why? Other than the fact that’s she’s purrrrty and real nice? She distributes some damn good wine here in California. A lot of the wine I buy and drink on a regular basis are wines that she selects/represents. She’s fighting the good fight, people!

If you could travel to one region of the world right now for its food and/or drink where would you go? Back to Galicia where I was last summer, for the amazingly fresh seafood and bowls of local white wine. (see photo below)

What’s for sipper? Today I am making Fabada Asturiana (a hearty white bean stew with salt pork and morcilla) so it will be a rustic red wine from the Languedoc.
