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.

Wine of the Week ~ 2015 Casillero del Diablo Chardonnay from Chile

Consistently tasty wine from Casillero del Diablo is something you can bank on as a great value, I don’t care what varietal grape it is. When it retails for $8 in the US (average, not the same pricing in PA or Puerto Rico, for instance), it’s an easy crowd pleaser.
