Meet Anna Jarosz

Wine expert, WSET Diploma graduate and Master of Wine candidate

Anna, a manager and wine educator at Auberge du Pommier, is helping our guests navigate the Babel bottle shop’s diverse range of offerings. With ten years of hospitality experience, eight years teaching wine courses, and two vintages spent in Bordeaux and Piedmont, Anna has the know-how to find those right fits, special gems and exceptional values. And if your favourite wine is not in the shop, she’ll try to source it for you.

Each week, Anna will share her Wine of the Week with us, describing each pick’s attributes and why she herself loves to drink it.  If you are seeking a particular vintage or varietal, or would just like to talk through the selection of wines available at the Babel Bottle Shop, please email and Anna will be happy to set up a phone consultation.

Wine of the Week

Tessari Grisela Soave, Veneto, Italy

Cantina Tessari’s vineyards are located in Classico area of Soave, on the hills above Il Castello di Soave. Grown at a high altitude on cool volcanic soils, the Garganega grapes that make up 100% of this wine undergo a slow ripening that draws out intense aromas of ripe peach, chamomile and white pepper.

The refreshing acidity and smooth texture of this dry, medium-bodied white wine pair beautifully with spring risotto and seafood.
