A while back I heard about a wine called MV, named after Jean-Georges' wife, Marja. As it turns out, this wine is made exclusively for the Jean-Georges restaurants. This pinot noir is grown and bottled in Oregon at the Ponzi Vineyards. I wish I had more information on the wine, but since it's bottled only for the JG restos, there is not much press on it. If Jean-Georges or Marja are reading this, please email me! I've heard this wine is fantastic and I wish I could get my hands on some. I wouldn't mind having my initials on a bottle of delicious pinot noir. Actually I prefer something white.
By the way, I know NOTHING about wines. I wish I did but it seems so overwhelming. I thought about taking a class at the FCI, but again I get so nervous that I won't be able to contain all the wine knowledge in my little head, let alone tell the difference between grapes and regions. Though, it feels like my "duty" as a chef's wife to know all I can about dining, which includes wine. Hmm, maybe I'll start with etiquette classes. I could handle that.
