Welcome, I’m Rosa Chalekian. I’m a mother, a wife and someone who loves wine, food and travel.
Even though I’m a professional in the financial industry for the last decade, I discovered my true passion is wine. I do not consider myself a wine expert, and I am not a sommelier… yet. I believe wine is something that should be discovered, enjoyed, and shared. Please join me in my journey as I share my experiences and travel the world through a wine glass. I look forward to raising a glass with you soon. Cheers!
There’s an ideal place for a wine to thrive, a part of the world where soil, water, climate and people come together to create a varietal of singular distinction. Criterion is your guide, the benchmark by which all others are measured.
Petit Verdot is one of the five main Bordeaux varietals. It ripens much later than the other varieties in that region. When it does ripen, it adds tannin, colour and flavour, in small amounts, to the blend.
Ruby Port is the freshest and least complex of fortified wines, deep red in color and filled with sweet flavors of red fruits. Ruby Port is made from wine produced from a blend of red grapes, fortified and aged no more than three years to maintain its fresh flavor and brilliant color.
Sherry is one of the world’s oldest wines. It is is a fortified wine of Spanish origin that typically has a distinctive nutty flavor. González Byass winery is a top seller in this oloroso due to its great value for money. This Dry Oloroso Sherry is made from 100% Palomino Fino grapes.
Crozes-Hermitage, is a budget friendly and delicious wine from the Northern Rhône. It is one of the largest wine appellations in that region. The history of Crozes-Hermitage dates back to the 1700s. By the end of the 1800s, Crozes-Hermitage wines were considered the third most expensive wines in the Northern Rhône Valley.
