I have been determined to ease into the holidays this year. We spent Thanksgiving with friends, as we often do, and then spent the rest of the long weekend at home — out of the way of shoppers looking for the best deals. I savored the last of a fall season that seemed very brief this year. I’m glad I […]

I’m willing to bet that you closely associate Zinfandel with the Lodi wine region. Many wine drinkers do. But, you might not associate Chardonnay with Lodi. We’ve only tasted a few Lodi Chardonnays, but recently we had the opportunity to taste the new release Chardonnay from Harney Lane Winery & Vineyards along with their Old Vine Zinfandel sourced from the […]

Today’s tasting note takes us to Argentina’s Mendoza wine region and more specifically to Tupungato within the Uco Valley. We are sipping wines from Domaine Bousquet’s Premium Range of wines and all are made using organic grapes. We received these wines as tasting samples. I still remember my first taste of Domaine Bousquet wines. It was their Gaia range of […]

Talk to him for even a short while […]

Grilling in the fall takes on a very different feel than in summer, even in California. Gone are long, leisurely and warm evenings. This time of year sunset comes quickly and a sweater may be required when tending the grill. And a head lamp. No matter, we still occasionally pull out the grill and when we do we need wine […]
