Mosaic Wine Group recently made a visit to Chantal’s Bistro and Wine Bar in historic Georgetown, Texas. Man, this place could have been the setting for Spielberg’s Back to the Future! It’s as Americana as they come. But that doesn’t stop them from appreciating great European wines like Non Confunditur (NC) by Argiano (Tuscany), Langhe Nebbiolo by Produttori del Barbaresco (Piedmont), or Château Graville-Lacoste (Brodeaux), a white wine (Semillon with a little Sauvignon Blanc) from the world’s most famous region for the production of red wine (Graves in Bordeaux).
