DIY Wine Tasting Party

Yesterday I talked about how not to have a home wine tasting party, so today here are some ideas on how to do it right. First off I should say that there are many wine shops and individuals who will gladly do this for you. They pick the wines, some will bring snacks, and they have great knowledge to impart. That is certainly an option, and not a bad one, either. However, for this article […]

Wine Tasting Party?

Last night I attended a wine tasting held in a shop owned by a friend of my wife. The event was fun and appeared to be a successful way for her to get people into her store. Nothing wrong with that, it is a nice shop and the people running it are exceptionally nice themselves.. The folks pouring the wine were also trying to get people to sign up for their wine club. Nothing wrong […]

Now Jacob, if nothing else, is a consistent child. This question has always […]

There is a lot of good advice for all of us in “Four sommeliers walk into a bar…” Some of my favorites are: After […]

Bubbles for every day, all day?

How can you not love an article that proposes drinking sparkling wine with every meal of the day? I think that I’ll pass on the champagne cocktail suggestions, but the rest of this is great. This style of wine really needs to be considered more often with all types of foods. They can be purchased in all price ranges and styles. Like Madame Lilly Bollinger, the late matriarch of the Bollinger champagne house, Kearney believes […]

Food Pairing Article

I really enjoyed this article on pairings. I have a bottle of Muscadet just begging for a dish like his first suggestion. Let’s get serious about food and wine matching. I’m going to present three utterly perfect pairings. They are classic and easy to do. First up: oysters. OK, I hear the chorus of boos. Oysters? Yuck. But, please, hear me out. In this case, we’re going to cook them to a nice crispiness.
