Five American Roses to Drink on the 4th of July, 7/3/15
Silver Thread prides themselves on an environmentally friendly wine cellar and sustainable farming practices. [Chef Rob] Newton says, “The wine really opens up. It has a couple extra layers of flavor that you can uncover as you drink it.” If you’re planning on grilling simply prepared steak or seafood, like lobster or shrimp, this Fourth of July, this a great summer wine to add a bit of complexity to your meal.
FLX Dream Teams, 3/8/15
Shannon and Paul Brock… took over Silver Thread Vineyard back in the summer of 2011 and since then they have successfully reinvented the small and slightly eccentric (in the positive sense) winery that Richard Figiel founded. Just like his wines, theirs are daringly original and always need some time to show their best, however, they’re considerably more consistent in style and quality than Figiel’s wines were. Their quartet of single vineyard dry Rieslings from 2013 (current vintage) are just beginning to come into their best form; racy and mineral terroir wines of considerable subtlety.
