Adega Wine Cellars & FLO Wines

4 Jul

Last year I had the pleasure of seeing world reowned jazz artist Marcus Johnson again although this time it was for the love of wine, FLO Wine that is.

FLO Wine, part of FLO Brands, produces and sells two types of wine – a Chardonnay and a Red Blend. The wine is bottled in northern California and created using grapes from the best appellations around the state.

FLOsophy: Our philosophy is to create wines that are an exceptional value for our consumers and that appeal to a wide audience. For the 2010 FLO Red Blend, we started with a smooth, silky Merlot and blended Cabernet Sauvignon to add a backbone and lengthen the finish. Petite Sirah contributed bright upfront fruit on both the nose and palate. The 2010 FLO Chardonnay is a well-balanced, fruit forward wine. We blended a small amount of Viognier to add floral notes and the slight sweetness of Riesling to enhance the fruit flavors and soften the finish.

I tasted both the red and white was they both were delectable!
Now if you don’t know about Adega Wine Cellars & Cafe, you my friend are simply missing out one of the best gourmet food and wines in downtown Silver Spring.

Adega Wine Cellars & Cafe opened in August, 2003 by Walter Rhee, who wanted a neighborhood establishment where he could meld his love of gourmet cooking and passion for fine wine. Over the years, Adega has transformed from a quiet cafe to a bustling neighborhood gathering place, all the while maintaining its unique concept, character, and style. We are proud to have been one of the pioneers of the revitalization of Downtown Silver Spring, and look forward to continuing to be an integral part of this vital community, and a leading voice for independent, locally-owned business.
