Girl Talk

Seems it doesn't matter how old we are, we still need our girlfriends to talk to about anything and everything.  Feeling a little down, I called my girlfriends, and one of my buddies was free to meet me for a splash.

1 Bottle/ 2 Meals: A Patriot Salute to a Bobby Flay Burger

I have a confession about his week's wine, it is an AZ wine from CA grapes!  Ouch, I know, please slap me on the wrists now!  My goal is to promote Arizona wines made from Arizona grapes and I broke my first and only rule, sorry.  At least I can say that the wine was not 100% California grapes but a blend of California and Arizona, so I sort of kept the rule.  And I am using the excuse that is was the last stop…

Chardonnay: America's Darling

 Chardonnay is the most popular white wine on the market in the United States, and growing around the world.  Walk into any given market whether it be a supermarket, or your local wine shop and the shelves are flooded with this grape, so much so that one might think it was the only white wine.  Go to any party and the white wine offering is almost always…

Touring the Arizona Wine Country

The state of Arizona has received a tremendous amount of national press in the last couple of months and most of it is not positive.  For a native (there are not too many of us) it is especially hard to hear.  Having lived in Arizona my entire life, I have witnessed the beauty that this state possesses.  Yes it has it's problems and it is getting a bad reputation for a handful of things.  What the media…

agents of ease and their occasional value

agents of ease and their occasional value

There are wines meant to be agents of ease, of breeziness, aimed to step easily into the realm of universality. Wines relatively incomplex, but not in the way of rusticity--they are polished by the seasoned winemaker's hand-- and whose…

Where the cows graze and the grapevines grow. My Southern Arizona wine adventure.

To embark on the profession of working the fields or vines everyday takes a certain type of person, not for the weak or easily intimidated, it is solely for the adventuresome spirit who is willing to take a risk every harvest, and willing to gamble with his/her sanity everyday.  Every season brings new problems, every harvest new weather conditions, and everyday the problem solving skills to figure the whole thing…

Braising Merlot

"What is the definition of a good wine? It should start and end with a smile."

 ~ William Sokolin

And so should a good meal!  That is exactly what we had last week, a terrific meal, that paired perfectly with a nice glass of wine, and finished with very happy stomachs.  That is what food and wine is all about, making your tummy happy with good company.  Yes, you can have epic mind blowing food and wine experiences, however in the grand scheme of things a simple smile…
