Featuring 16 different Wines from Islands Around the World for the month of March:
To escape from the LA’s dreariest weather month, get some Tropical spirit from Island Wines at Pourtal Wine Bar in Santa Monica. Whether from the Atlantic Ocean, Pacific Ocean, or Indian Ocean, there are phenomenal wines from Islands everywhere. They are blessed with sunshine, volcanic soil and temperate climates, explaining the diversity of varietals and styles of island vines. Many don’t know that wine has traveled by sailors who sailed the seas on route to the ports of Northern Europe and the Caribbean. Writers and poets of the time have frequently praised wines of islands, capable of lifting the spirit and livening the heart. Also the Phylloxera plague failed to reach some of these islands, maintaining the nobleness of these ancient vines. Come by anytime for the entire month of March and sample up to 16 featured white and red wines from Islands such as: Mallora, Corsica, Sardegna, New Zealand, Tasmania, Sicily, Korcula (off Croatia), Cephalonia & Rhodes (off Greece), and the Canary Islands.
