Top 50 2021 Sips by Mr. Whet Palette

As you know, from following this blog, wine plays a major role in all food experiences.  I am Lawrence, the husband of the force behind The Whet Palette. My part is to (1) not touch the food until Brenda has photographed it, (2) occasionally hold a flash, and (3) pick the vino! With that being said, these are my 50 favorite sips of 2021.

Cheers!

Lawrence
