Vegas Wineaux Meets Trader Joe’s!

The Trader Joe's tasting was quite an eye-opener for many of us who tend to have more, um, *polished* palates than the average person. Okay, I'll just say it. We're wine snobs.

2007 Kiamie White Kuvee – Yum!

The 2007 Kiamie White Kuvée is a serious wine in spite of the kitschy spelling of cuvée. A blend of 65% Viognier and 35% Rousanne, it has seen oak, but unlike many Viognier and Viognier blends, it is most definitely not a Napa Chard wannabe.

Can Zinfandel Age? You Decide

Only a certifiable lunatic would bring an old Zin to the Zin Fest where there are multiple wines that could easily smack it down. It took someone having a brass pair to do this, but when I saw "the poster," I knew that Doug was the guy.

Paso Robles Wine Festival 2010 – Uh oh

Just like wine events all over, the Wine Festival consists of winery activities throughout the long weekend, with the “Grand Tasting” on Saturday afternoon. Last year, we took a lot of video, did interviews, photographed everything, and had a wonderful time. This year, circumstances just won’t cooperate. Dang it.

Reviewing a Black Beast – 2006 Barnwood Vineyards Petite Sirah

The next night I had a roasted turkey thigh and poured a glass of the same wine – with some trepidation, I might add. After all, could a wine that caressed the barbecue sauce so beautifully the night before possibly be any good with plain ‘ol turkey?

Zin Festival – A Vegas Wineaux Series!

It wasn't just because of the wines - although that had a lot to do with it - but it was because of the Wild Game BBQ that Augie hosted. So it was our stomachs that made the decision for us. What a shock, right?

Prepping for Tasting at Hug – Zin Fest Fun!

During this series of videos, you will be introduced to some wineries that will probably be new to you. Like Hug, Villicana , Vines on the Marycrest, and so many others in Paso Robles, many of these are boutique wineries that have a very small, limited production and whose wines you may never experience unless you’re there or a member of their club. Boy do I wish I were rich.

Wine Cellar – CellarTracker Rocks!

My entire list is housed at CellarTracker.com, a great place and resource for keeping track of wine collections, tastings, and what's currently popular among wine aficionados. Feel free to compare what you like with what's in my collection. And by all means, be sure to stop by CellarTracker to see what's happening in the "real" wine world - the world of everyday people enjoying wines.

Zin Fest Updates – Coming!

The Wineaux Guy and I did some reviews of Zinfandels and other wines while there, and we did one-minute commentaries on the various Zins that we tasted at the Grand Tasting. But the most memorable part of this is the hat.

We’re Baaack!!

By the time you're reading this, I'm hoping that you've had some time to marvel at the new look and feel of the Vegas Wineaux website and blog.
