Wine Club: Social Distancing with Mourvèdre

Hi wine friends…and Happy #WineWednesday! We have been diligently practicing social distancing in the A Glass After Work household, which has given me the opportunity to focus on my wine clubs. Today, I’m sharing my March 2020 Vasco Urbano Wine Co. Wine Club and tasting the 2016 HP Mourvèdre, which is a $42 red wine from the Livermore Valley in California. Cheers! 

The Vasco Urbano wine club send shipments 4 times a year — March, June, September, and December – and there are 12, 6, and 3-bottle membership options. The monthly cost depends on the wines included in the shipment, but usually it ranges from $95-$130.
