Beau Carufel calls wine 'Liquid Art.' We met Beau in June at the Wine Bloggers' Conference in Washington. Beau was sitting in Wine Blogging 101 attempting to gather pearls of wisdom from the learned panelists while random audio from a concurrent session kept inserting itself into the conversation. Gotta love technology.
Since tonight is the official start of the NFL regular season (Who Dat?), Joe fixed burgers, queso and guacamole. A quick meal so we could get down to the business of watching football. When I asked if we were having wine, he said, "This meal would be better with beer!" Did you know that last year there were nearly 1600 breweries operating in the United States?

Labor Day for many marks the end of Summer, and the return of Football to America. It's not just another "Hallmark Holiday." It's not just a way to give bankers and government workers a day off. Or to allow Congress to take an extended break before returning to gridlock. In fact, it's a holiday born from the concept of socialism - the organized labor movement. Want to read more?

They say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. Perhaps. But when someone is making money by stealing our wine reviews, pairings, recipes and photographs of food and wine, we have to take issue with it.

These refreshing spritzers are all the rage with the jet setters and hip crowd in Argentina. Refreshing and low in alcohol, these are the perfect wines to accompany dancing on the patio or sunning by the pool. They also make a great addition to the end of summer Labor Day cook-out!

The post is called "Wine Blog Engagement Scores – a surprising result" And we were, indeed, surprised. Out of 28 top blogs, the surprising result was...
Often we visit a tasting room, love a wine, and purchase bottles to ship home, only to find that once at home, the wine does not live up to the tasting room experience. This was certainly not the case with the 2008 Quarry Butte from Alexandria Nicole Cellars, a red blend crafted from their Estate [...]

Tristan Risk takes her clothes off for a living. But don't call her a stripper. Pin-up queen, model and slasher film star, "Little Miss Risk" is a burlesque artist who performs with the Vancouver troupe Sweet Soul Burlesque. A fan of corsets, wine and cupcakes, Tristan came to our attention as one of the Voodoo Dollz who performs with Big John Bates.
I am going to send a question out to a bunch of wine folks over time and then print the answers here, but figured I’d take a shot at it first in case everyone thinks it is a stupid idea and ignores me. The question is: What five people, living or dead, would you like [...]
When Margaret Ryan at Olson Ogden Wines contacted us about their newest release last Spring, I was delighted to learn it was a white Rhône blend. We really enjoyed the Olson Ogden Wines‘ Pinot Noir and Rhône varietals we had tasted, so we were pretty confident that this one would not disappoint. It most certainly [...]
I like to think that I treat wine like one should treat their children by never playing favorites. But the truth is that I am not capable. I truly prefer red wine to white wine. If served a white, even one of my favorites, when in the mood for a red I have a hard [...]
