Every Monday here after, I will be blogging about the wines from the region of Nantais, which is  located at the western edge of the Loire Valley in France. This is where the cool Atlantic makes its presence felt via climate and cuisine.  It will be a personal journey of sorts, like a scrapbook of immersion into the wines which I imbibe regularly.

Joe Dressner, a well known nyc importer ,whom I admire and respect once wrote, ” a great taster is one with the wine….learn everything you can about the region and producer. Go visit them on vacation. Immerse yourself.” This is what I plan to do; and you can join me on this journey, every Monday, here at The Schist. Enjoy!(I know I will).
