Summer Water

I came across a brilliantly labeled wine the other day at Whole Foods, Summer Water. It’s the perfect way to describe Rose wine. It is after all one of the most popular wines for Summer. Rose comes in all shapes and sizes, hues of pink and flavor. It is easy to sip and refreshing on a hot…

New Year – Time To Give Back!

Happy New Year! Getting back to the grind of work and school can be a rough transition after the holiday season. Catching up on sleep, going back to eating more veggies and fewer cookies seems like a tough task, yet we all have to do it. Some folks might even be sticking to their resolution,…

Turkey Wine

Trying to stay fit? Really killing it at the gym lately? I’ve got bad news for you, you’re going to have to take a day off so you can stuff your face with all the goodness that is Thanksgiving food. It’s OK, I’m sure if you are someone who still goes to department stores on…

Rose in a BIG Way!

I have written about the fact that I am openly a snob about Rose wine. Rose from Provence is all I will drink…. until recently. Trader Joe’s has this power over me. Anything new prominently (brilliantly) displayed I buy. I can’t help it. They’re advertising/marketing people are brilliant. In a recent visit to TJ’s to…

Rose All Day, Everyday

I have come to a realization. I have become somewhat of a wine snob. Now, I have prided myself on not being one for years and years. Unfortunately, it has happened to me and I can’t go back.  Let me explain.  My realization is that I have only become a wine snob with Rose wines….

Hats Off to Great Derby Wine

    Saturday marks the 143rd running of the Kentucky Derby! The Mint Juleps will be flowing, glorious hats and seersucker suits will be flaunted and gazillions will be spent on a race that is very hard to bet on (20 horses). My favorite part is the horses going into the starting gate ready to…

Mother Earth will thank you and your taste buds will thank you too!

This past weekend, folks around the world celebrated Earth Day — some spending time hiking outside, others marching for Science in Washington, DC. A wonderful and important day to celebrate our Earth and green practices to keep our Earth healthy, clean and thriving. You must be wondering where I am going with this. Obviously in…

GREAT NEW LOCATION FOR WINE BUYING? TOTALLY!

Forgive me father, for I have sinned… no, wait, no I haven’t, but it’s been a while since my last post. I blame the hustle and bustle of the holidays, then the recovering from the holidays (which takes the entire month of January). Now that we are into February and the recovery is well over…

(A holiday gift for) The Hostess With The Mostest

It’s the most wonderful time of the year! (Cue Andy Williams) Holiday parties up the wazoo, eggnog, Christmas cookies, elbowing your fellow shopper to grab that newest technology, arctic temperatures, did I mention cookies? Whether you’re a Scrooge or a holiday fan, sometimes a glass of wine – to either celebrate the holidays with family…
