Eclectic wine selection, Western Mass.
Okay, so you might have guessed that I regularly traipse the Berkshires. I like a good bottle of wine with dinner, but find myself rather bored with the blah Kung Fu Girl Riesling and overpriced California Zinfandels. I want something strange, with preferably a wide range of vintages, and within the $10-200 budget. Show me a Beaucastel, an Eitselbacher, anything and everything interesting and off the beaten path.
I'm a Riesling lover, and Nejaime's in Lenox (on Route 7A) usually has a good selection, with some really fine wines (well, I love 'em) in the $10 - $25.00 range. They have a new supplier whose wares I sampled at their tent sale tasting the end of June, and she poured some beauties, perfectly balanced, sweet and acidity. ELEGANT.
