The eighth season of Joseph Rosendo’s Travelscope has given me the opportunity to discover some destinations I’ve never visited and new sides to places I’ve known. This season’s fifteen new PBS episodes (grand total 106 now) span the globe from Asia to Europe and have offered me the chance to sample some novel tastes. Since I am always in search... Read More
It's funny,I was just up there. The best dinner I we had was at WIndows on the Water in Morro Bay. Over the years I have have to say the the 4-5 restaurants in Pismo and AG have all been reasonably good. Not cutting edge cuisine by any means, but reasonably enjoyable at a reasonable price.

Okay, I get to take two quick trips this month. First, we go to San Luis Obispo, Pismo Beach, and Cambria (more or less in that order). We have one night in Pismo Beach that we can go out for dinner, and we can do a very limited amount of wine tasting because we will have the kids. So, where do we have dinner in Pismo?

Blackberries and herbs. A friend described this as like a berry from my imagination. A snozberry. Twelve months in French oak. Read More
In glossary terms, a prestige cuvée is an exceptional Champagne, generally aged extensively and very carefully blended from the best parcels, which sell for a premium. Historically speaking, and with some irony in the timing, the concept was developed by Robert-Jean de Vogüé, a director at Champagne Moët & Chandon during the Great Depression. He... Read More
It’s the holiday season and everyone is recommending Pinot Noir again. What is it with folks, do they just like to take the path of least resistance? Will there come a day when Pinot is not the end all of holiday wine recommendations? Probably not. Lambrusco and Blaufrankisch have a whole set of issues that will prevent them from ever garnering ... Read More
