So I jumped out here and brought me and my buddy this Wine opening accessory and thought this would be cool to try out.  Even though the Better business bureau had a few complaints about it.  One of my viewers asked were there an easy way of opening up wine bottles and something I could recommend.  I'm ole school but I thought I would try this product because it looked pretty cool.

A blend of primarily 90% Pardina, also known as Cayetana Blanca and Jaen Blanco, this grape is grown abundantly in northwest Spain even though it is not commonly known in the U.S..  It displays a lemon-gold color, with a subtle nose of pear and fennel, and flavors of citrus and subdued melon in a medium bodied, medium acid, fresh white that is excellent when cold.

Soft and light on the palate, it's a dry wine with a tinge of sweetness - notes of honeysuckle, lemon curd, and stone fruit are balanced with vibrant minerality.

A cheerful, translucid, lemon-yellow and slightly pétillant white wine, Vinho Verde literally means ‘green wine’ and is named after the northwest Portugese region from which it originates. 

It is typically a blend of various percentages of Alvarinho, Loureiro, Trajadura, and Pedernã (Arinto) giving it a charmingly light sparkle.
