Seafood and Chenin

I was so excited when I picked my order up. I knew the exact wine I wanted to try with it. Crab legs and shrimp with the head on swimming in a spicy Hook & Reel Special House Blend. Yes, please! The wine played so nicely with the spiciness of the sauce. Y’all this was …

Mixing it up with Sweet Bordeaux…

Before last week’s Golden Wines of Bordeaux class, I definitely would not have thought outside the box when it came to pairing sweet wines with food. However, Yannick Benjamin said try something different. So I did. I ordered a medium heat Chicken Breast Wrap from Nando Peri Peri — a mix of crunchy vegetables, sweet …

Txakoli sippin…

Pictures from Sunday’s Txakoli fest at Maxwell DC! There was unlimited Txakoli, Ciders, Porrons and delicious bites. The great thing about Txakoli is it’s high acid but low alcohol (9.5-11% ABV). So it’s an easy, all day sipping wine and goes great with food. The crowd favorite of the night was Ameztoi’s Rubentis Rosé. The …

Time Traveling in Napa…

My first SommCon session of day two was Time Traveling in Napa – How to Access Library Wines, and How Top Producers Release Them. This session is merely just one of the reasons to come to SommCon! Where can you try a 1985 Chateau Montelena Chardonnay, 1966 Charles Krug Cabernet or 1997 & 2010 Schramsberg …

South African Wine Royalty…

I went to a wonderful tasting at Chat’s Liquors on Saturday with Ntsiki Biyela! She is the Owner and Winemaker of Aslina wines from South Africa (South Africa’s first Black Female Winemaker!). Ms Biyela showcased her 2018 Sauvignon Blanc, 2017 & 2018 Chardonnay, 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon and 2015 & 2016 Red Blend. Made using grapes …

Teamwork and winemaking…

The beautiful property of Reeve Wines, owned by a dynamic husband and wife team (Noah and Kelly Dorrance), is a small production winery/farm. (I love that they have goats and chickens roaming around together!) Even though Noah is in charge of winemaking and production, they have a lot of support from all-star winemakers (check out …

I finally made it…

So cool to have visited the only Guinness Brewery in the US! Located in Baltimore County in the old Maryland Distilling Company space, roughly 40 minutes from Washington, DC. During our guided tour ($15pp), Rebecca, our dope tour guide, told us that one of the reasons this location was chosen was due to the great …

I am WOMAN, Hear Me Pour…

On Monday, a ride over the bridge led me to Palette 22 in Shirlington for the Maker’s Mark event “I am Woman Hear Me Pour.” This event was held to celebrate Margie Samuels, co-founder of Maker’s Mark. Throughout the evening, Rachel Ford, a Maker’s Mark Diplomat, told us not only did Margie come up with …

Pour me the good stuff…

What a fabulous tasting at Domaine Storage DC (thanks @atastyjourney). We had the pleasure to listen to Benjamin Leroux discuss his delicious wines. He knew at age 13 that he wanted to be in the wine industry. I don’t know what you were doing at 13 but that’s serious wine love! Wine seems to have …
