Well, this is a first! Having a wine blog I routinely place photos of the wines I try on the blog, and then maybe 3-4 times a year I post the reviews to Snooth, just to share with other fans (I guess I have enough to do to actually write the reviews a...

You may not always be in the mood for wine talk, especially after a long, indulgence-drenched holiday season. Many of us have taken the “Drynuary” pledge (a personal promise to avoid alcohol consumption during the month of January) only to fail miserably within the first week. Sound familiar? If yes, you are in good company. While January does ... Read More
15 years ago, before I retired, I had a couple of bottles of Chevalier de Bayard. It was the best tasting wine I'd ever had. But now that I'm on a fixed income, I can no longer spend $25 on a bottle of wine.Does anybody have any ideas of what wines are close to it but less expensive?Thank you Read More
What's everyone opening?No cooking for me this year, but I'll be providing all the wines, probably 10-12 bottles. Have to make final cuts tonight but a couple bottles of Chardonnay, Beaujolais, and Pinot are in the mix. Read More

The new workshops are part of the school's Food, Wine and Tourism program and offers “a bou... Read More
We're doing a long weekend in Russian River and Napa this weekend. Flew into San Francisco yesterday with no problems. Friend picked us up at the airport, definitely beats the heck out of fighting the huge crowd at the rental car counters. Why don't they have a contiguous highway from the airport to hwy 101.So what's the first thing to do in win... Read More
I just read an interesting article about some wine makers in BC trying wine made strictly from grapes with nothing added, in clay amphoras. Is this nothing new in California?http://www.winealign.com/blog/2014/10/22/the-british-columbia-wine-report-october/?utm_source=Vintages+Newsletters&utm_campaign=5d8b674693-BC_Wine_Oct&utm_medium=email&utm_...

For over 10 years Clos du Bois North Coast Merlot was my go -to red. Well balanced, fruit forward, moderate spice, off dry, silky smooth and long, lush finish.. Then, in the 2010 vintage, something went horribly wrong. The dominant note was a cinnamon-nutmeg-jalapeno concoction. Stopped drinking it all together. Then my husband bought the 2... Read More

This article should help you out in your quest JD: http://philly.thedrinknation.com/articles/read/6999-Wine-Challenge-What-To-Drink-With-A-CheesesteakI think beer is probably a better pairing than wine for a cheesesteak, though I can't really say because I couldn't tell you the last time I ate one - quite frankly, they're far inferior to the thr...
