As I’ve mentioned previously, whenever my sister comes over, she always brings tons of food and multiple bottles of wine. Occasionally we don’t make it through everything, so I pop the leftover bottle(s) in my bar wine rack and await her next visit. She stopped over the other night rather randomly, so it was an excellent reason to pluck out a bottle she had brought over earlier, Owen Roe Abbot’s Table 2010. David O’Reilly is the founder and winemaker of Owen Roe Wines, which make wines under several different labels. The top range of wines are from high-end vineyards, produced in very small batches, and come with hand printed photogravure labels. The wood print label wines, of which Abbot’s Table is part of, tend to be blends and are sourced from the very same high-end vineyards, but are priced lower. His Sharecropper series is made in close conjunction with the vineyard owners, and they all share the profits as the name implies. The Abbot’s Table is based on his experience of visiting monasteries around the world and always being welcomed. He created the blend to honor the warmth and generosity he found at their tables.
