“The Set” ~ Could it be more controlled?

Lucas & Lewellen Sustainably Crafted is Just So Fine ~ An Interview with Mike Lewellen

Lucas & Lewellen sustainably crafted is just so fine is not an overstatement, it’s what I’ve experienced and happy to write about it. First, I got the wine. Next, I tasted it, and found it to be really lovely. The elements of femininity really shined through. Then I discovered Lucas & Lewellen has a female […]

Small Producers Don’t | Won’t Matter to Wholesalers ~ Perhaps Ever Again

Once an oligopoly is formed, like the big three car manufacturers (General Motors, Ford, and Chrysler), it takes (and took) an outside  invasion to enter the US, offering greater value. Then, it will cycle back again…in continual consolidations. Worldwide, now, will be determined by who’s cashed out and who’s cashed into the most gold. Gold […]

The Nose Knows ~ but only after it’s been trained

The Le Nez du Vin wine aroma kit is the original of all wine aroma kits on the market. Nobody does it better… It’s the Bentley of wine aromas, discovered by Jean Lenoir, some 30 years ago… Often imitated, it can’t possibly be duplicated. Nor can there exist anything quite like it for a luxurious […]

Wine of the Week ~ Spartico Organic Wine

A Republican and a Democrat bumped into each other this 4th of July for a drink

Interesting concept, huh? I have a friend in the CIA, who once told me, when the GOP is in the house, they enjoy hard liquor. When the DEMs are in the house, they prefer wine. Meanwhile, I know who has their “House” wine, but can’t tell. How about celebrating this Fourth of July weekend by […]

D&D = Done and (Re)Done + Official Wine of Millennial American Males

Certainly, I could also add Official Wine of Millennial American Females to this title, but the title itself would just be too darn long… I know plenty of women who also love Petite Sirah. Petite loves that the Millennials are gravitating toward this “ain’t your papa’s Cabernet” wine. I’ve always felt the same way about […]
