I am part of the world that is wired into Social Media, and the other day one of my “friends” wrote to me that she is enjoying a sweet red wine called La Di Da. I had never heard of the wine and rather cavalierly responded back with “Is it made by Scarlett O’Hara?” The more I thought about it, the worse I felt about the quick one-liner. Now I have to admit that there are certain memorable lines that clog my memory like “Rosebud,” “the things that dreams are made of” and “of all the gin joints in all the world.”
So I felt that I had to atone for being a bit flippant, I guess that is that Mid-Western attitude, and some I know may refer to it as “The Highway,” but that is an inside joke. Any ways I had to do some research on this wine that I had not heard of. There are actually two wines made La Di Da Wine Cellars; one is a “Sweet Red Wine” and the other is a “White Zinfandel.” They are both listed as California wines. I could not find out what varietals are used in the “Sweet Red Wine” and I will not try to second guess, as I have not tasted this wine.
Let me quote from the home page of the winery: “Are you a wine snob? If so, then LaDiDa to you. The only thing serious about this wine is the fact that it is meant to be enjoyed with family & friends.
LaDiDa produces fun, drink-me-now sweet wines. Often times, wine is taken too seriously and LaDiDa Wine Cellars believes that drinking wine is all about having fun with friends and family. So go ahead, forget about all of the rules ……” The photos of the two wines are also from the web site as I have not seen the wine.
Since this article is mostly quotes, I shall leave you with a couple of more, one is one of my favorites and the other reminds me of another line, when I think of “La Di Da.” “Here’s looking at you kid” and “Frankly my dear, I don’t give a damn.”
Wine was never my thing this wine is great and it truly for friends, family and a hold lot of fun. Unable to find it anymore. Just so happened to held on to several bottles. When this pandemic is at bay I’m going to sit on my porch and have me a bottle or two. If you’ve never tasted it you’ve missed out. Good fun! The
I heartily concur that wine is best enjoyed with family and or friends. I don’t always write about wines that people respond to, and I am glad that you found it. Thank you. – John
