Rioja Wine – A Tasting to Remember

On Tuesday, September 18, 2018, I attended a Rioja wine tasting event sponsored by Southern Glaziers Wine & Spirits in partnership with Rioja Trade. To sum it up WOW!

The Peculiarity of Wine

By necessity, Pinot and I have an open relationship. While I regularly taste, assess, and enjoy other wines, Pinot is always my first love and the one I return to nightly. It is sensual. It is luxurious. Hedonistic, even.

Don’t Hate Me Because I’m Frugal – “Target”ing Malbec

Pescetarians and vegetarians may find this too big a wine to have with halibut or tofu.

Martian Ranch & Vineyard – One Woman’s Biodynamic Journey

Winemaker Colin Murphy and Vineyard Manager Felipe Hernandez collaborate regularly to ensure the quality of the fruit improves from year to year.

Honeymoon, Africa, Cape Town, and Wine! (Part Four – Stark-Condé and Tokara)

However, it was the sign in front of the vines that proved the most disconcerting. It read: “Leopards in the Fynbos.”
