The Jelly Belly Wine Bar
Wine X Magazine can be pretty provocative and also downright irreverent when it comes to wine snobbishness. Their latest foray into the world of wine fun is to combine different Jelly Belly Beans to simulate the flavors of various varietals/styles of wine – The Jelly Belly Wine Bar.
Fun way to chew your Jelly Bellys although for oaked Syrah you need eleven different beans. And if you want to make it a French-Syrah you add a bit of dirt, Jelly Belly dirt that is. In fact whether its red or white any French varietal seems to require a little bit of dirt, even French Alsace riesling.
