A Wine Pairing for the Eclipse

A Wine Pairing for the Eclipse

There are only so many blogs one can read on wine and cheese pairing, so we figured why not write a blog on pairing wine with the 2017 eclipse? Just in case you’ve been living under a rock for the past few months, on Monday, August 21st will be the first total solar...

Are 100 Point Wines Worth It?

Are 100 Point Wines Worth It?

We are lucky enough to have friends who are not only into wine and have incredible collections of wine we could never afford, but are also kind enough to open some of their prized bottles with us.

Wine Rant: Wine Lists and Sommeliers

We were in Aspen the other weekend (yes, we have a tough life).

Heck, it confuses most people who live in Bordeaux. In fact, while recently tasting in Bordeaux at a “Premier Grand Crus Classé A,” our pourer confided in us that even her friends don’t understand the classification system. So, we’re going to try to explain it with an analogy that most Americans can understand (and are quite passionate about) – March Madness.
