Wine was not the primary reason we traveled to Namibia, but once we discovered there are several commercial wineries located in this arid African county we made it our mission to taste wine from as many of them as we could. It took two trips, but we have now tasted wine from all four commercial wineries in Namibia and visited […]

Winemaking techniques and styles of wine are as varied as the terroir in which wine grapes grow and the personalities of the winemakers crafting those wines. All of that variety is one of the things that is most appealing about wine. Today’s tasting of Ventisquero Grey demonstrates that appealing variability in the most delicious way. We received both wines as […]

Cabernet Franc is the focus of this month’s Wine Pairing Weekend (#winePW) group of wine and food enthusiasts. Can you see the broad smile on my face?

The two words I most closely associate with Bordeaux are Cabernet and expensive. Wines made by any of the five First Growth châteaux are too pricey for my budget and the same is true for most wine drinkers, I would imagine. I need to look further down the Bordeaux ranking to find delicious wines that are also affordable.  Another way […]

Syrah, Grenache and Cinsault play well together in this textured red blend. I fell for the wine before I learned the interesting story behind Mas Conscience and the appellation within Languedoc that is home to the vineyards.

Today’s cellar note takes us to the Loire Valley, France for a sip of the most remarkable wine. This wine tells the tale of Saint-Pourçain AOC located south of Moulins, family farming and a grape variety at risk of being lost. We purchased this wine from one of our favorite wine merchants, Les Marchands Restaurant & Wine Shop in Santa […]

Let’s begin at the end…the end of a meal. Dessert is a special occasion in our house reserved for when we entertain, or celebrate a birthday or other special occasion. We recently received a bottle of Graham’s Six Grapes Reserve Port as a tasting sample, which set me to thinking about sipping it after a meal. But my thoughts quickly […]
