Special Encore Presentation: It's All About the Sweet Stuff or The Liquid D

9/10/2013
More
I LOVE dessert wines. They are the perfect finish to a fantastic dinner or just an enjoyable way to end the day. However, just pairing them with any 'dessert' can be disastrous. It takes finesse and planning to pair them well, and sometimes, it's easier to pair them with a cheese plate or enjoy them on their own as a Liquid Desert. We'll discuss Port, Sherry, and Madeira, the fortified sweet and dry wines. And then we'll talk about Moscato d'Asti, Demi-Sec Champagne and other sweet...

Wine Terms 101

9/3/2013
More
Lately, I've been focused on education even more than usual, it must be all those 'back to school' ads I keep seeing. Let's get back to basics, and define the words of the wine industry. This class isn't going to sound like a dictionary – unless it's a really tasty dictionary! However, in the past, I've taken friends to 'professional' tasting events; shortly after arriving, my wine friends were completely overwhelmed with the terminology and the atmosphere of a professional tasting. This...

Special Encore Presentation: Rosé

The weather is beginning to warm up, and Spring is Sprung or perhaps, still around the corner depending on your part of the Northern Hemisphere! Spring and Summer mean Rosé, and I'm not talking about 'pink' wine. We'll cover the details on its history, some brand names, and a winery fermentation crisis that have made millions! We'll talk production and grape varietals that make great Rosé. As always, I'll give you the clues on how to order the right style of Rosé at a restaurant – to make...

France: Vacation Wrap Up!

6/18/2013
More
Before completely leaving my vacation adventures, I want to mention my very quick trip through Burgundy, the things we missed, and already have planned to go back & do. My uncommon adventures there, including: Beaune, Dijon, and Vougeot. Actually, my entire trip probably qualifies as uncommon! I'll talk a bit more about trip planning, how I do it compared to the rest of the world – or at least compared to most of the people I know. We'll talk restaurants, wine, navigation via the trains,...

France: A Day in Bordeaux!

6/11/2013
More
So far, you've heard about Rhone, Champagne, and today, you'll get the next location from my vacation/wine trip – Bordeaux! If I had to pick a favorite – well I couldn't! However, it probably wouldn't be Bordeaux, not because it wasn't incredible, but because Everything was incredible. It was almost surreal. It was a DAY in Bordeaux with a personalized tour through several regions – I had no idea how vast an area it was. We'll talk a little geology, you know I'm a dork like that. I even got...

Champagne – Bubbles of the finest quality!

6/4/2013
More
I'm a Bubbles fan; it's certainly not a secret! And to be honest, I'm not really a bubbles snob either. I like, mostly love, them all: Prosecco, Cava, Domestic, Import, Sweet, Dry, Moscato, etc. You get the point, I love fizz – preferably well done at a reasonable price. However, when celebrating (and there's always a few bottles in the frig), I'm reaching for Champagne. The Real Deal. So when my first EVER trip to France included some time in Reims, the heart of Champagne – I was like a...
