Norm's Tasting Notes
By: Norm Bentley
North Georgia Wine Advisor
The "Chardonnay Queen" and I are heading for our little cottage by the sea, in Matlacha, FL, for a couple of weeks, so there will be no Norm's Tasting Notes for the next few weeks, but on our return I will post the results of our fishing, seafood, and wine events. Meanwhile, you can check out previous wine articles at the sites listed below.
