  • This might be a stretch, but when you're retired, almost everything goes.  I think it would be grand for folks to come up with an above average wine for Wednesdays, which some of us - those still working for a living - call 'hump day'.  Something beyond an everyday Weekday Wine, yet still below the threshold of a truly Weekend Wine.  Since tomor...

  • As an avid (and confirmed) beer drinker, I've come into the wine scene late.  I would drink wine before, but I never really challenged my palate.  Fortunately for me, I'm burning my GI Bill attending a culinary school, and thus, got to take a couple of wine classes.  That's been it for me.  I've jumped all over the map, and have encountered grea...

  • Hi everyone.  My wife Sandra and I have been into wine for the past few years and that's led to a few trips to Napa Valley and related areas in 2012 and 2013.  We enjoy all wines but reds are our favorites.  We hosted our first wine tasting party last night and it was a fun event - sixteen wine lovers trying different wines in a blind tasting.  ...
