Tragedy in Vegas

My loved ones were concerned that just maybe I had attended a country-western concert on the Strip at 10 pm on a Sunday night.

Growing Your Own! Yes, in Vegas!

Well. Now that I have your attention...

Malibu Wine Country!! Wait. What?

Malibu Coast vintners — all 52 of them — are doing a victory dance right now.

Bourbon-aged Wine: Taming My Inner Wine Snob

It is delicious and despite its heat, it’s very easy to drink before it becomes necessary to take an unscheduled nap. Don't ask.

Wineries, Coastish to Coast

You know Maine, the land of pine needles, lobsters, clams, and rocky beaches? But wine?!?

Southern Oregon Wine Country – OMG

The Potlikker Papers – Time Machine to the Past…with a Fork

If the customer perceives the cork as being cheap (as in synthetic corks and screwcaps), then the perception will be that the wine is cheap, too.
