We have both been busy lately – a little too busy actually and, regretfully, not much of it to do with wine. The wine shelves are almost bare, dirty laundry piling up, and unanswered emails clogging our inboxes.
However, somewhere in the blur that has been this summer, I did manage to attend – survive might […]
I know, I know… This is a wine blog. It should be about wine. But wait… It is about wine, kinda. Bear with me… Before the explanatory bit, let’s just gaze lovingly.
Isn’t that lovely?
Before I talk about how this could possibly be wine related, let’s talk a little bit about the folks who made the […]
I had a lunch the other day which was very enjoyable – great food, good wine, stunning location, nice views and pleasant company – and it set me thinking about the pairing of food and wine. There is a lot written about the importance of matching food and wine and there are many web sites […]
As Shakespeare asked, “What’s in a name? Would a rose by any other name still smell as sweet?” Or, more to the point, would a wine labeled by any other AVA still smell (and taste) as wonderful?
An AVA (American Viticultural Area) is a delimited, geographic region used to designate wine regions within the United States. […]

However, I pulled out a couple a bottles to review and share with family and friends on a recent vacation in upstate New York. The two bottles I chose where the Plumpjack 2000 “McWilliams Oakville Vineyard” Cabernet […]
I am at the local farmers market. It was early Saturday morning. I had not had breakfast yet. I was starving. So what do I do? I go from vendor to vendor and everything is looking so wonderful that I start filling up my market bag with fresh tomatoes, patty pan squash, corn on the […]

You don’t have to have an indepth knowledge of wine, although that is a bonus. If you can demonstrate the ability to write engaging and punchy posts and can commit to […]
I am always a sucker for a pretty cover, whether it is on a book or on a wine. Growing up, prowling the shelves at the library (which is really easy when you work there shelving books), I’d pull a book off the shelf and, based on a quick look at the cover, decide if […]
I was really excited to go to Chamard Winery in Clinton, CT. It is about an hour away from home and I felt like this could become my new regular hangout. What makes it even better is that it’s about a mile away from one of my other favorite places–the Clinton Crossings Outlet Shopping Mall! So […]
Halloween seems far off right now, in the heat of summer where temps this week in Ohio are supposed to be around 98 degrees F. However, the Halloween weekend is a big deal at my house, and we’re already preparing for it.
We don’t have kids, and that’s not likely to change. We won’t be in […]
