Cowboys, Chaps and World Class Chardonnay

What do you pair with a $79 Chardonnay? I asked, Joe, who does nearly all of the cooking for us here at Another Wine Blog? Fish Stew, he says. Now I am not a big fan of stew, fish or otherwise. It is probably a completely irrational bias from my childhood. Stew was what you had when you either did not have anything in the house to make a proper meal, or could not afford […]

Cooking to Pair with Multiple Wines: Green Valley of Russian River Valley

For many a home chef, it is relatively simple to pair a dish with a wine. You can consult Mr. Google, or visit a variety of wine sites, like Another Wine Blog, for suggestions. But suppose you have a recipe that pairs well with one red wine, but want to serve two different varieties – what then? That was my dilemma for a tasting of 3 wines from Green Valley of Russian River Valley hosted […]

Always Seasonal: Gallica Albariño Calaveras 2015

Oh. My. Goodness. Look at her shoes. And after Labor Day no less. Shudder. She’s wearing… white! The prevailing opinion, be it for marketing or merely historical convenience, is that for every wine there is a season: Red for Autumn and Winter and Rose for Spring. White belongs to Summer. Nonsense! In the words of my friend Frank Morgan: drink what you like. And might I add, when you like! Many think of Albariño as […]

Ingress, Pokémon and Published!

You may have noticed our absence as of late. Rest assured we are alive and well — traveling, tasting and tweeting. We are spending less time indoors, and more time out. And the result? Weight loss and a better outlook on life. In addition, I can add “author” in a mainstream publication, to my list! Resistance is NOT Futile We’ve joined the Resistance! What is that you ask? Are we suddenly starting our own political […]

Escape to Kelowna, Okanagan Valley, BC

Charismatic Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau isn’t the only thing drawing United States’ visitors across the border. As we count down to Cleveland and the start of the Republican National Convention, both Democrats and Republicans alike are making the same inquiry: Just how does one immigrate to Canada? After visiting Kelowna, British Columbia, last month to taste wines from the Okanagan Valley, I thought about it a bit myself. The landscape is beautiful; the people are friendly, […]

Wine Review: Spicewood Vineyards Mourvèdre Rosé 2014

The secret is out! Spicewood Vineyards makes incredible wine and has joined the Texas Fine Wine group as its newest member. I suppose it was not that much of a secret, because they seem to be so popular with their Wine Club, that they sell wines nearly as soon as they are released. But it was a secret to me.  That is before my Austin friend Matt McGinnis who blogs at What Are You Drinking? sent me […]

Celebrate Your Love with Sparkling Wine from Limoux!

Wine lovers in Houston and nationally are discovering sparkling wines that originated nearly 100 years before Dom Pérignon was born, and years before Champagne became the wine of celebrations. To taste true tradition first created by Benedictine Monks in the Abbey of Saint-Hilaire, look to the wine region in southern France near Carcassonne and the eastern foothills of the Pyrénées — Limoux.
