Wine Trails

Central Coast 2021 – We’re Random!

And we finished up in Pismo Beach (PISMO BEACH!!!!) at the Cracked Crab.

Central Coast, Paso Robles, and More!

I remember one day tasting about 65 wines. Yes. Tasting. Not drinking. And my budget died. What can I say? The wines were spectacular, and I simply had to have them!

Tin City Block Party, Part One – Before the Party

Who knew that you'd have to have an appointment to interview some wineries on BLOCK PARTY WEEKEND?! Sheesh!

My Favorite Winery(ish) – Part Deux

Several years ago I wrote an article about the "largest winery" in Paso Robles. That "winery" is Albertsons, located at 3rd and Niblick, near the 101. That was Part One. We're baaaack!

Food Nooz

J. Lohr Wine Dinner – Marché Bacchus

When I saw the flyer for a J. Lohr wine dinner at Marché Bacchus for just a little over $100, I jumped at the opportunity. Budget be damned.

Iron Chef America, Politics, Whooshes, and Friendships

I was feeling very smug as I posted my snarky commentary, and then my balloon got punctured.
