Elicio Blanc Vermintino and Elicio Rouge Grenache-Merlot
Today’s wine recommendation comes to you from the South of France. Above we have a video from Wine-street.com discussing the Vermintino (a white wine) from Chateau Elicio - France.
As described by Wine-Street, this yummy summer white is “100% Vermintino from young vines growing on the southern slopes of the Ventoux region, aged 8 months in stainless steel tanks. Clear golden color with an intense nose of exotic (passion fruit lychee) and white fruits. A very refreshing wine, round on the palate, with sweet pear notes and a touch of citrus followed by a nice acidity. A crisp, light, and flavorful modern white wine that will be a delight with all your summer and light dishes, or by itself.”
Also produced by this winery is the Elicio Grenache-Merlot (a 50/50% blend). Here is an entertaining video by Wine of the Month Club describing the delicious flavors and interesting pairings for the Grenache-Merlot by Elicio. It has been described as “a young wine, packed with fresh notes of cherry, strawberry, and raspberry wrapped up in a tornado of intense flavors and soft white and black spices. Round, very fruit forward, this extreme value wine can be enjoyed with your everyday meals or by itself. Elicio, simply delicious!”
The fun thing about these 2 wines is that they are incredibly reasonably priced (under $12/bottle!) and super versatile with their pairing options.
I love these Elicio wines!

Look at this beautiful creature I just found.
Originally Jesse Pinkman was supposed to be killed off Breaking Bad during the show’s first season. Aaron Paul says he didn’t learn that until series creator Vince Gilligan called him over one day during lunch.
"He goes, ‘Originally Jesse was supposed to die at the end of this season,’ … and instantly my heart dropped and slowed down a bit," Paul says. "And he said, ‘We don’t think we’re going to do that anymore.’ "
Gilligan told Paul that he loved the chemistry between Walt and Jesse.
"He decided to change the whole dynamic of their relationship and really the whole dynamic of the show," says Paul. "But the entire second season, the entire third season, I thought that Jesse could be a goner at any moment because there’s many things that this character could screw up on, and he could definitely meet his deathbed at any moment."
Other cast members, including Bryan Cranston, would joke around on set with Paul about his character’s potential demise.
"Bryan would come up and give me a hug and say, ‘I’m not going to say anything but it was such a pleasure working with you. It’s been an amazing past year-and-a-half, and you have a huge career ahead of you,’ " he says. "They would always joke around about it. They’ve kind of slowed down about it, but who knows — this kid could die at any second."

Relationships are complicated, and as Cary Ann Hearst says of her marriage and Shovels & Rope musical partner Michael Trent, “It’s a strange thing to be held accountable as part of the musical act.”
