About Me

My Photo

I have started this blog, Southwest Florida Forks, as I want to share my dining and food experiences with you both textually and pictorially.
I love food and photography and it is my hope that through my dining/food/traveling combined with photos I can bring to you an accurate log of my experiences.
A fork can be an eating implement used to pick things up, as well as being a point where something disperses, perfect for a blog.
You can choose to use these postings as a guide, and if not, perhaps just see life through my lens.

15th Annual Champagne and Sparkling Wine Tasting at Tony's Off Third

Tony's Off Third is the retail wine space adjacent to Ridgway Bar and Grill in Old Naples.

Besides a retail wine shop, they also have excellent breakfast selections, pastries, coffees and teas.

Their veranda is very accommodating,

and gets very crowded during the winter months and the 3rd St. Farmers Market on Saturday mornings.

The holiday season at Tony's Off Third was in high gear, all the backdrop for sparkling wines and champagnes.

The selections at the tasting were many, twenty two in all.

Here is a listing of the wines.

As discussed in another Post, brut is the second least dry (sugar content) in champagne grading. NV, stands for non-vintage. This is where the wines need to be blended from different years to achieve a drinkable and standardized taste. Vintage Wines are those of a single year when everything comes together geologically and climatically to make the grape as best as possible. For those that are interested, here is all you wanted to know about Sparkling Wine .

The wines were in four separate areas.

The attendees were really enjoying themselves sampling the selections of wines and champagnes.

Merry Christmas everyone!
