Cali… what?

Feeling adventurous? Want something cold to drink while watching the Super Bowl (but not interested in beer)? Try mixing up a Calimocho. Calimocho is a mixture of red wine and Coke. It’s a Spanish concoction, so you can tell your friends that you are cultured and exotic while sipping it. It’s refreshing and light. With caffeine and less alcohol than a full glass of wine, you can have several and stay awake to see the whole game.   The best part? There is no wrong way to make it. 2 readily available ingredients that you...

Desperate Times…

Desperate Times…

… call for desperate measures. On New Year’s Eve, my husband and I opened a bottle of wine that we had been saving for 10 years. Truth be told, we don’t actually LOVE cellared wine, but can’t help but enjoy the romance of buying something to save and open in several years. There is something about that whole “delayed gratification” thing. What is not romantic is when you open this very special bottle only to find out that it is corked. (Our kids can verify. They said it smelled like “old...

Is There Butter in My Wine?

If you have spent time around people who drink a lot of wine (or maybe you have been hanging out with our winemaker, Milan) you have heard them describe the wine with terms like “citrus notes,” “buttery,” “cherry,” “baking spices,” etc. (And those are commonly used terms. Some wine descriptors can be downright crazy: rubber hose, barnyard, dirt, grandma’s purse, and more.) When people hear others describe wine using terms like these, they often have a couple of questions: Do winemakers add...

Don’t Stress… IMPRESS!

Whether you are having someone over for dinner or, perhaps, going to someone’s house, there are those times you might find yourself in the company of a true oenophile (oe·no·phile noun: a connoisseur of wines). Even if you love and drink wine often, there will always be that person that knows more than you do, knows the difference between Rhine and Rhone, Burgundy and Bordeaux, Languedoc and Loire Valley. That begs the question: how do you authentically impress an oenophile without looking like a poser? Step 1: Do a bit of research. Do...
