We've put the palate to the test in Drinking Problems, a video series in which our tasters, ranging from a James Beard Award-winning chef to a comedian who simply appreciates a good drink, give us the good, the bad, and the ugly of what they're drinking.
In this episode, three tasting teams have signed on to sample four different wines and give us their tasting notes.
Sergio and Country Velador of Super Chunk Sweets and Treats in Scottsdale, Joshua Hebert of Posh Improvisational Cuisine in Scottsdale and Christopher Gross of Christopher's Restaurant and Crush Lounge in Phoenix, and Marisol Chavez and Sara Palmer of For A Good Time Call Improv Troupe try a Chardonnay by Charles Shaw (you probably know it as Two Buck Chuck), Pandora Arizona white wine by Pierce, Dayden pink table wine by Arizona Stronghold, and Savigny-Les-Beaune 1er Cru “Aux Guettes” by Domaine A. Machard De Gramont.
Keep Phoenix New Times Free... Since we started Phoenix New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Phoenix, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Phoenix with no paywalls.
