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 …

Sardines anyone?

Let me start this off by asking, do you like sardines? Yes? Keep reading. No? Keep reading. So I tried to do a rift of of St Anselm’s Grilled Sardines – Grilled Sardines with olive tapenade on crunchy bread and a spritz of lemon. I was too lazy to grill the sardines, so I just …

Bringing cans to the beach…

Okay, I’ll be honest I was going to keep these Maker Wine cans for myself. But decided it would be really great to share with friends. I love that the box came with notecards that listed the stories of each winemaker. Their stories are also on the back of each can. So we were able …

Come one, come all…

SCFTW (Screw Cap For The Win)! This Chardonnay by House of Brown is part of the Brown Estate family – Napa’s first Black owned estate winery (their Zinfandel is fire!). It’s a little hard to find but keep searching. It’s totally worth it! HOB’s motto is “Come one, come all.” That’s definitely the vibe we …

Early Mountain…

Tonight I’m joining Janet Cam and Ben Jordan (Early Mountain & Lightwell Survey) for some Zoom wine education. They will be discussing Early Mountain’s 2019 Rosé and the 2017 Eluvium. Since I am already familiar with EM’s delicious Rosé, I decided to try their 2019 PUR — 60% Chardonnay, 35% Viognier and 5% Pinot Gris. …

Amber colored glasses…

Sipping something tasty on a Sunday. This amber colored Georgian wine is 100% Tsolikouri grape (a well known grape variety in Georgia). It is fermented in a Qvevri, an “earthenware vessels used for fermentation, storage and aging.” This unfiltered wine smells like citrus with a little honey and a dash of salt. Sounds weird? But …

Chillin by the Ocean…

La Corniche is a really popular area in Casablanca where you can find locals and tourists hanging out together. It sits along side the Atlantic Ocean with restaurants, hotels, pools and it’s also an excellent place to people watch. We decided to have a seafood lunch with wine at La Terrazza. In the background people …

Wines made by the Oceano…

I had the pleasure to sit and chat with Rachel Martin, Owner/Vintner of Oceano Wines (Marbue Marke is the Winemaker). If her name sounds familiar it’s because she used to work with her family at Boxwood Estate Winery (Middleburg, VA) before starting Oceano. We sampled two Chardonnays – 2016 & 2017. This beautiful expression of …

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 …

Fresh off my trip, I was able to get it together to volunteer for this year’s SommCon DC (read last year’s post). The first session I assisted with was New Horizon of Asian Wines, World Class Chinese and Japanese Wines. The session was moderated by Toshio Ueno – VP & Executive Instructor, Sake School of …

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 …
