San Francisco isn't exactly known for it's hot weather- even in summer but we've had a bit of a heatwave this weekend.  When it is hot I usually only want one kind of wine, Rosé. The thing that many people don't realize is that Rosé isn't really one kind of wine. Rosé...

Wine and music pair well together, they always have. BottleRock is a music and wine festival that is held annually in Napa. I’ve always wanted to go but never get around to buying tickets before they are sold out. This year I owe a huge thanks to Cakebread Cellars. The...

I realize that the original intent of this blog was to try a wine from all 50 states so I’m taking a bit of a detour, though I guess that depends on what you define as a “wine”. St. James Winery located in Missouri is infamous for its production of fruit wines and I wa...

Here’s a secret, anyone can host a wine party. Why host a wine party, because it’s fun, that’s why. You only need a few basic things:

One of the things I like to say is, “I’m a mother, I’m not dead.” Let’s face it, becoming a parent creates huge life changes but your life doesn’t stop. As a parent I’m always looking for family friendly wine events and I’ve found a gre...
