Rodney Strong’s Summer Concert Series ~ One more to go with Huey Lewis & The News ~ Labor Day Weekend

Tweet Jose and I saw Dave Coz and his friends on July 28, and I was reminded how much I love concerts at Rodney Strong Vineyards. First of all, we could walk to Rodney Strong. It’s only a couple of miles from where we live. That kind of convenience is one of the great perks […]

Candyman 187 and 2009 Joseph Drouhin Brouilly for my weekend adventures

Tweet Having been in the rock n’roll business, I still love the life of music, the artists, the dances, and the lifestyle. With that in mind, this morning, I was queried and asked if I could get this story onto my blog ASAP. I don’t usually do this so quickly, but we’re headed into the […]

Could “Drops of Jupiter” be THE “Paradigm Shift” [PS] I’ve Long Been Awaiting?

Tweet Image: Sony Music Entertainment Anyone who knows me knows that I’m a Petite Sirah freak. It’s done it to me, that Petite. It began in 2002 when I was the Foppiano family’s wine publicist. “Put on a Petite Sirah symposium,” Louis told me. He had no idea that I could do a couple of […]

What I’m Listening to as I Prepare for the Oak Knoll Symposium ~ Anders Holst’s SoHo Suite

Tweet As you read this, I’ve already left for the Oregon Pinot Gris Symposium, presented by (and at) Oak Knoll Winery in Willamette Valley. Today is actually Sunday (June 5), and I’m about to go into a huge printing process. All that’s left is to print name badges, table tents, programs, and tech data for […]

Tim Hawkins ~ Old Rock Stars

Tweet This was just sent to me by my friend Monique Dubois. We went to high school together, and hooked up long before Facebook… Some relationships are enduring. Speaking of enduring… Get ready to laugh at some Old Rock Stars songs, as newly updated by Tim Hawkins. Something to watch while you’re having your glass […]

Instead of Wine, Women, and Song; How about Wine, Men and Song?

Tweet I’m thinking the title of “Wine, Women, and Song” must have emanated from a man somewhere at some point in time… The odds are in favor of it being created this way. If I’m wrong, I stand corrected. As a woman, I see “Wine, Men, and Song,” as a more interesting phenomena; maybe that’s […]

She’s Drinkin’ California Wine

A Really Reluctant Blog Posting about R.A. Harrison Family Cellars

Tweet [Image of Nobility was borrowed from the R.A. Harrison Family Cellars Website.] Why am I reluctant? Not because there’s anything wrong with Roger Harrison’s effort as a winemaker; but, rather, because there’s everything right about it… To write his story would mean that I’d have to open his bottle of nectar; and, I’m not […]

How do Hurricane Katrina and wine come together in the same breath?

Tweet The wine writers I’ve featured on this blog, up to this point, have been people I’ve worked with over the years. Recently, I was asked by wine writer Lorrie LeBeaux if I’d write about her on my blog. Lorrie S. LeBeaux ~ originally from New Orleans ~ Wine Writer #37… “Hum…” I thought to […]

We Scored the Scores ~ Petite Sirah With Alacia Van’s Music ~ Part 2

Tweet Continuing with yesterday, where I set the stage for this Petite Sirah tasting paired with Jazz music… For me, Alacia Van’s music seemed to match Petite Sirah pretty well… Jazzy, bluesy, not what one would traditionally be expecting in today’s world of new music… even by Jazz standards. But, that’s what it was… The […]
