In 2013, Zoetic Wines‘ owner and winemaker Kim Vance guest posted here about following her passion of winemaking. Now, four years later, I taste one of Kim’s wines, the 2014 Zoetic Wines Grazioso Sauvignon Blanc, for my first tasting note contribution to Cellar Angels, where wine and charitable giving come together as one.
