You will notice that I used The Divining Rod Chardonnay in this appetizer recipe, and I did that for two reasons:

  1. I love wine
  2. It gives it an extra punch of flavor

You will find several varieties of The Divining Rod Wine: Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Cabernet Sauvignon, and the Divine Red. I recommend having several bottles available for your guests at your next gathering, as each one, it’s own unique symphony of flavors for you to enjoy.

Where to find The Divining Rod wines

The Divining Rod Wines are made by one of the most interesting men I have met. Marc Mondavi is not only the first and only Water Witch I have ever met, but he is down-to-earth, friendly, and will take the time to talk to you about his family, Napa, and wine. I recently had the opportunity to go to Napa and the time I spent with Marc Mondavi was the most memorable. His kindness, passion, and devotion are contagious, and if that alone doesn’t make you want to try his wine, then just have a glass…the supernatural craftsmanship will have coming back for more.
