Sommelier Jessica Altieri Wrigley Field Perfect Pairing
Sommelier Jessica Altieri is a lifelong Chicago resident and can tell you winning at Wrigley Field in Chicago doesn’t happen that often. The last time the Cubs won the World Series was in 1908. We won’t have to wait that long to taste a “winning wine” at Wrigley Field.
Mud House Wines winemaker Ben Glover was a key “player” in the early success of Mud House Wines. No relief pitcher needed for Mr. Glover!
Mud House vineyards carry a strong tradition of producing vintage Pinot Gris from their Waipara Vineyard. The Waipara wine region expands a vast area of land in the sunny Teviotdale Hills away from the ocean’s coastline. With limestone soil and a warm climate, it’s the perfect place to produce Pinot Gris and Mud House vineyards has taken its taste to another level. Their 2010 Pinot Gris Waipara Home Block has gone through an extensive process of cold-pressing the grapes and continuously keeping the wine at a cool temperature during the fermentation process. In addition, for a period of two to three months, the wine is aged on lees or residual yeast during the fining process. Sip this wine to discover not only hints of pear peach but notes of sweet honeysuckle and rare, spicy gingerbread as well.
Jessica Altieri pioneered the first “Live Wine Experience” for National New Zealand Wine Day, with over 25 high end New Zealand wine brands, over 200 in-studio guests at the Kenmore Live Studio in Chicago, and a worldwide audience engaging on social media with winemakers and bloggers around the world. Her Live Wine Experience digital content and programs have earned the support of leading winemakers and retail brands including Walgreens, Roundy’s, Constellation Brands, E.&J. Gallo, Gibson’s Restaurant Group and more.
