Chez Billy Sud is a neighborhood French bistro and wine bar located in Georgetown.  Closest Metro is Foggy Bottom-GWU. After watching a play at the Kennedy Center, we took a quick cab ride over to Chez Billy Sud for dinner.  Inside was small and charming with light blue and gold paint on the wall and a lovey outdoor patio as well.  We ordered a bottle of 2015 Domaine Les 4 Vents, Crozes-Hermitage, Syrah.  It was bold and tannic with lots of sediment, but paired well with our French meal. There were many starters that caught our eye, so we decided to share three (ha!).&nbs ..read more

Virginian wine is having a moment right now and so we decided to spend the long weekend exploring more wineries of the Blue Ride and Southern Virginia Mountains.  Basing out of Charlottesville, we visited more wineries along the Gold Medal Wine Trail.  The wines from this region embody this unique position in the world. They are lush but structured; aromatic, expressive and beautifully balanced—blending the subtlety of the Old World with the boldness of the new. Read my recap below: Barboursville Vineyards is an 18th century estate that is breathtaking and was our favorite wi ..read more
