Winter Warmer Wines

Winter is officially here and sometimes you need more than a warm blanket and a cozy fire to satisfy your soul.  This is where a glass of really, REALLY good red wine comes in handy. Not just your ordinary, average, every day sipper, but one that gives you that warm and fuzzy feeling inside and makes you stop to actually think about the wine because it’s just that delicious.  Advanced Sommelier Jenny Benzie highlights what should be on your winter drinking list this winter and the benefits of keeping warm with each of them. TUSCAN TREASURE Winter may not be the best time to travel to the vineyards of Europe, but it is a great time to either reminisce about the trip you took to Italy last fall during truffle season (!) or plan an upcoming biking trek through the vineyards of Tuscany for the ultimate wine vacation next year.  In the region of Montalcino, the name Brunello is synonymous with some...Read More >

Football & Wine Picks

There are those who live and die by the game of football, and then there are those who enjoy everything else about the game.  Creating new traditions and long-lasting memories by tailgating with friends and family, trying out the latest and greatest of lip-smacking snack food recipes, showing your utmost team spirit by donning your colorful game-day uniform, and ultimately spreading good cheer and being a good sports-person no matter what the outcome of the game. All of this hard work, either by the host providing such an experience or attendees cheering on the game, is sure to draw up a thirst that needs to be quenched.  Advanced Sommelier Jenny Benzie offers us a quick list of “First and Ten” wines that will not only be game day crowd-pleasers, but also leave room in your pocket to do it all over again next weekend! THE AWAY TEAM In the division of West Coast wines from the United States, Washington State is...Read More >

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. In 1967, they became the first winery to plant vineyards...Read More >

The Many Savvy Styles of Sauvignon Blanc

Like sand at the beach, it is not all created equal. The color can range from pale cream to golden to caramel when wet, even black sand in a few far out reaches of the earth. The size of the sand varies from soft, finely grained to being course and rough, or perhaps somewhere in between. It is also important to consider the movement of the waves on the beach as in influencer on your beach experience. While it isn’t the sand itself, the soft lapping of the water on the shore or loud crashing of the waves will affect the overall ‘terroir’ aspect of the seaside region. Consider this inequality with Sauvignon Blanc wines that come from different growing climates, varying soil types and diverse production methods. Discover how the flavor profile and styles of this savvy white wine vary based on these influencing factors. A SANCERRE SUBSTITION STAND-OUT  When you think of summer, the seashore and what to...Read More >
