Wine of the Week ~ Gratien & Meyer Crémant de Loire

The Wine of the Week, from Juicy Tales, is the Gratien & Meyer Crémant de Loire. Exciting, tiny pink bubbles, from a winery that’s been making wine for over 150 years. They have heritage, they have tradition, and they have this sparkling wine, which is way too easy to enjoy! I found it to be […]

Wines of the Week ~ For The Solar Eclipse ~ Concha y Toro Frontera After Midnight and Moonlight

[Image from Navicore] On August 12, my husband and I went outside, pulled up the lawn chairs, got under our blankets, and watched the night sky.

Roses to Write Home About

éé Wines of the Week Rosés, our most delicious wines for the spring and the summer season ahead, I love them… True confession: It wasn’t until I tasted Sutter Home’s White Zin that I finally got wine. Had I not been trying to love Merlots as my entry wine, I wouldn’t have needed something with […]

Wine of the Week ~ 2015 Nik Weis St. Urbans-Hof Riesling

What a beautiful wine the 2015 St. Urbans-Hof Wiltinger “Alte Reben” Kabinett Feinherb Riesling is… This estate bottled Riesling is only 10.5 percent alcohol. That lower alcohol level allows for such a delicious food and wine experience. With its bright, crisp, and very clean flavors, this wine is a delight. There’s only a hint of […]

I’m now in the Mayacamas Mountains, above the Alexander Valley floor. The views are spectacular… stunning, really. Perhaps this is why my devotion to blogging every day has waned […]
