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…

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…

pardo, mencia

In October of 2017, I went to Scotland. Man, if I could pick up and just move, I would. Unfortunately, I’m an adult with a life and responsibilities…so that’s out of the question, BUT that doesn’t mean I don’t love it there. Besides being a big Harry Potter buff, I also have a huge love for…

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…

19 crimes red blend

19 crimes such an interesting back story. If you haven’t, check out their website. My favorite quote from their site, “this wine celebrates the rules they broke and the culture they built.” It’s one of my mom’s favorite wines and I can understand why. wine name: 19 crimes vintage: 2016 style/type: red wine (blend) country/region:…

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…

simpler wines, chardonnay

During my time home, I’ve fallen in love with a simple to transport beachy wine. It’s called Simpler Wines. You can find them at Trader Joes and they are pretty tasty. It started with the rosé (I didn’t do a tasting for it), but then I purchased the chardonnay and had to do a tasting….
