sineann, cabernet sauvignon

So I work in advertising and because I work in advertising I by default get to work with some really cool people. This weekend we went on a ski trip to Belleayre Mountain. We’re all at different levels, but no matter what we have a good time and at the end of the day we…

rasteau, red blend

For everyone out there that doesn’t work in advertising I commend you; doctors, law enforcement, I guess even corporate jobs. You typically don’t drink at work. Not saying I drink on the job, but usually towards the end of the day (let’s say 5PM) folks in the office twist off the lid of a bottle…

emma reichart, dry riesling

Gosh, I was probably 10 or 11 the last time I had a lemonade stand. Every summer when I was younger, we would go to my Aunt Becky’s for a week. We called it camp Becky. Maria, Rachel, Danny, and I (all within 2 years of age of each other) would just hang out, catch…

ruth lewandowski, dinos to diamonds

So, I’m 100% obsessed with Marissa Ross. I follow her on Instagram, I read her blog, and I just bought her book. I’m probably a couple years behind the bandwagon, but I love the way she writes about wine and expresses her opinions on wine. That said, I have no idea how I stumbled upon…

ruby red, rosé

Sometimes you find a bottle of wine that you really just don’t like. It may or may not have anything to really do with the wine and just personal preferences. This wine was that for me and somehow I’m that odd man. According to the reviews I’ve found, everyone else loves it. Now I have…

bloem, chenin blanc + viognier

So I’ve been reading this book, “Wine. all the time.” and I’m obsessed with it. Marissa Ross does an incredible job of explaining wine in a way that I personally understand and can relate to. Reading her book is like watching Project Runway or Nikita. At the end of an episode, I either want to…

irving bottle, rosé

Theres nothing like a good bottle of rosé left over from a fabulous girls night. Last night my friend and I needed a good, inexpensive, bottle of wine to enjoy the latest episode of Younger, so we picked up Irving Bottle. The same friend introduced me to Jessica’s Illustrations. I received my new, beautiful, illustrations…

wine down wednesday – rosé

I am pretty enthusiastic when it comes to wine. I’m currently taking the level 2 WSET course and am a BIG fan of hosting wine tasting parties. I typically throw one once a month to help me hone in on my wine skills and share my love of wine with others. If anything its a…

j.lohr cabernet sauvignon

I LOVE j.lohr but let me tell you, this bottle was bad. There’s a reason why you taste the bottle of wine at a restaurant. It’s not just to figure out if you like the flavor profile + characteristics of that wine, it’s to also taste if the wine has gone bad and this bottle…

simple life, chardonnay

After a terrible cabernet tasting (post coming soon) my Mom + I figured we’d try something new. We choose the wine based off of the label. It’s simple, crisp, and light. It’s perfect for afternoon snacks in the backyard and sunset viewings at the harbor. Thank you Simple Life Simple Life for a perfect afternoon/evening…
