This Tuesday on “Wine for Dinner” we're teaming up with our good friend Jeff Snow from Glou-Glou Wines! We’ll lead a LIVE & interactive wine tasting with viewers on Facebook & Instagram.

Glou-Glou (pronounced glue-glue) is a french term which implies that a wine could be chugged. It does not promote excess drinking, rather it tends to happen naturally based on a certain taste profile. We already know of this concept with our favorite beers that we throw back, but wines can and do fit the same level of hyper drinkability.  Glou-Glou is used exclusively in the natural wine world and focuses on freshness, purity and liveliness. This does not mean that wines have to be light bodied. I drink plenty of natural wines with body and weight; however, the common denominator is freshness. We will explore a selection of these wines from Jeff's portfolio.

Here’s a list of the featured wines. Also, we’ve listed a handful of wine shops & restaurants in Baltimore that have a selection of these wines.
