BI Wine Selection

    Hello from Escazu, Costa Rica about 20 minutes up in the mountains outside of San Jose and wanted to tell you about a wonderful, quaint wine shop called “BI Wine Selection”  I came across yesterday.

     With a nice selection of wines from Argentina, Chile, Spain, Italy and France I felt right at home, greeted by the friendly smiling staff of Nurys, Daliya and Jairo who immediately offered me assistance, asking if I would like to try some wines;  NOW YOU’RE TALKIN!  🙂

      The first of the two wines I tasted was a 2007 Limited Novas Chilean Cabernet Sauvignon- Carmenere Blend made from Organic grapes and was one of the best Chilean wines I have ever had.  With a contemplative, concentrated nose of sweet perfume, faint green pepper and orange zest, this medium bodied wine on the palate offers a rich spectrum of dark fruit, balanced fresh soil with balanced acidity.  🙂 


          With a wonderful start, I was treated by Nurys, Daliya and Jairo to another scrumptious wine, a 2007 Agriverde Riseis Montepulciano D ‘ Abruzzo.  Old World and Rich, this Italian red offers a bouquet of leather and rustic earth while lending a pleasant tartness, flavors of cranberry, baked cherry pie and toasted vanilla on the palate.  A little heavy on the tannin, but with age and paired with a hearty Italian meal, this wine will be perfect! 

       After being treated like a dear friend even though I was stranger, I thanked my gracious hosts and went about my way off into the soothing sunshine smiling both on the inside and out, realizing I had stumbled across a perfect moment in time and a fabulous wine shop.   Please visit BI Wine Selection at
