Celebrating American Wines

Not only does Labor Day mark the (unofficial) closing of the summer season, more importantly it is a celebration to honor the working people and the contributions that they have made to our country over the years. Our celebrations often include parades, barbeques and most likely beverages in which to toast those who have paved the way for our country at some point in history to be what it is today. With this in mind, we look at a handful of pioneers in the California wine business who are considered icons in the industry based on the contributions they have made to the trade. ROMANCING THE LAND The Chappellet family’s romance with Pritchard Hill in Napa Valley started more than four decades ago.   When Donn and Molly Chappellet first glimpsed the magnificent view of forests and wildflower-filled meadows from this location, they knew this is where they wanted to be.

Summer on Nantucket has become synonymous with drinking rosé wine. On the boat, at the beach, sipping it waterfront with breakfast, lunch or dinner are just a few occasions where one can be caught with a full glass of pink pleasure in their hand.

As summer is winding down, this is the perfect time to transition into enjoying a different style of rosé than the light, refreshing one you would imbibe during the dog days of summertime.  Being on the cusp of fall, here is a selection of tried-and-true American-made rosés worthy of consideration and reflection as we transition into my favorite season. The best of rosés during this time of year are those that...Read More >

Beer Me Up, Benzie!

CAPTAIN KIRK’S BEER BLOG, STARDATE 201605.26 This weekend, we choose to celebrate the culture and community of craft brewers in America. Many of these organizations began as home brewers who were looking to make something a little better or different than what was being offered from the mass production breweries. Hobbyists turned business owners, craft brewers can now be found in all pockets of the United States. Here’s a cross-country examination of a few of our American favorites: Peak Organic Brewing Company: Fresh Cut 6 pack, 12 oz. bottles Brewed in Portland, ME, Peak is a craft brewing company dedicated to making delicious beer using local, artisan and organic ingredients. Fresh Cut is a dry-hopped pilsner. Dry hopping is a way to increase hoppy aromas by adding the hops after fermentation. Chinook, Citra and Centennial hops, typically used to craft an American Style IPA, provide aromas of citrus, grass and spice. Though the front palate is loud with IPA qualities, the finish...Read More >
