My obligatory Thanksgiving wine pairing post

It seems that you can’t traverse the web these days without tripping over an article about pairing wine with turkey or a Thanksgiving dinner. Why should I be any different? I like Thanksgiving and I like wine and I have to write about something, don’t I? I kept putting off writing this due to lack of inspiration, but decided that today would be the day.

Rhone and Ribs

This video from Wine Spectator had me drooling by combining two of my absolute favorite flavors, Rhone wines and short ribs. This is a marriage made in heaven!

Quit laughing, dammit!

It is also quite low in alcohol, 7%, which is nice with dessert, or even as dessert, if you have already had wine with dinner. Rosa Regale is delicious […]

Super Bowl Wine

With the Super Bowl right around the corner many of us are in the process of planning a party. While most fans don’t really have a dog in this race any more, we still all crowd around the television like this is a life or death event, and for some of the advertisers who often provide the best part of the entertainment, it just might be.
