Chicken Marsala, Winehiker-Style

Date: Tue, Jun 17, 2008 Wine Tasting

Yesterday, after learning about one of my favorite wines garnering a Double Gold from the San Francisco International Wine Competition, I decided to pop a bottle and cook up a delicious dinner to go with it. Ever since dining at Slow Club in San Francisco last Thursday night, I’d been in the mood to see [...]

Movie stars, socialites, and now wine bloggers?

Date: Tue, Jun 10, 2008 Wine Tasting

  The Flamingo Resort, Santa Rosa, circa 1959: it was the place to stay north of the bay within two years of its opening, a posh retreat for the Hollywood Jet Set. One could find the likes of Jayne Mansfield, dramatic and daring in her then-scandalous two-piece swimsuit, soaking up the sun poolside and presumably posing for [...]

Flavors and Savors

Date: Mon, Jun 9, 2008 Wine Tasting

When Spring sprang in March, I didn’t figure on it affecting my appliances. But within a period of a few days in late May, three different clocks in my house just decided to stop working - fresh batteries notwithstanding. Could there have been unusual solar activity, causing an indefensible energy spike? Extremely high signal-jamming pulses [...]

The Winsome Woodland Star

Date: Fri, May 23, 2008 Wine Tasting

The Woodland Star (Lithophragma glabrum), is a member of the Saxifrage family. There aren’t terribly many of these dainty delights relative to other wildflower species, but perhaps that’s due to their lurking in shady little hideaways where mere mortals choose not to tread. Sometimes, however, they appear before us at trailside, white elfin gowns shimmering as [...]

Join me for a winehike and picnic this Saturday, May 31st

Date: Thu, May 22, 2008 Wine Tasting

Bradley Cooper lives in Canada’s Okanagan Valley, an immense winemaking region of British Columbia. It’s where he produces small lots of Cabernet, Merlot, Syrah, and a whole host of white wines for Township 7 Vineyards. Now that he’s finished bottling his latest batch of Rosés, he and his wife, Audralee, are going to visit California for their [...]

This Sunday: a first-ever Santa Cruz Mountains Wine Railway event

Date: Fri, May 16, 2008 Wine Tasting

When I’ve walked the paths through the stately giants of Henry Cowell Redwoods State Park, about 30 miles from my hometown, I’ve always been awed by the majesty of those timeless trees. Equally timeless, it seems, is the far-off whistle of the historic Roaring Camp steam locomotive that runs daily from its mountain home in the town [...]

Excedrin’s Bitch

Date: Thu, May 15, 2008 Wine Tasting

These last few days have been rough. I’ll admit that my chiropractor and I have been friends for over 18 years, but I’d sure rather get together with her under friendlier circumstances. You see, I am Excedrin’s Bitch. I’ve had a helluva headache for six days - a headache so strong that I haven’t been able to [...]

Falling over the Clif laughing

Date: Thu, May 8, 2008 Wine Tasting

I enjoyed a good chuckle tonight when I arrived home from work. There on the steps was a UPS package addressed to Winehiker Reviews Wine. It looked like it could contain a bottle of wine, but when I picked it up, the package wasn’t heavy enough to contain a 750ml bottle - at least a [...]

The POST post: a chance to be part of history

Date: Tue, May 6, 2008 Wine Tasting

Its expansive panoramic views of the Pacific Ocean extend all the way down to Monterey Bay. Facing south, breathtaking landscapes of the Santa Cruz Mountains are shaded periwinkle blue in the distance. Natural springs, numerous creeks, and wetland habitat are distinct features as well as its bigleaf maples, bay laurels and lush grasslands. Across its 1,047 acres [...]

Beware the manroot!

Date: Mon, May 5, 2008 Wine Tasting

In this Spring season, more than in seasons past, I’ve been seeing an incredible lot of wild cucumber flowering along my favorite Bay Area trails. The wild cucumber, Latin name Marah macrocarpus, is a member of the Cucurbitaceae, or gourd family. It is quite a pretty vine when it flowers, and does bear resemblance to most garden-variety cucumber plants. [...]

Owl be seeing you, in all the old familiar places

Date: Fri, May 2, 2008 Wine Tasting

Earlier this week on Two Heel Drive, a local hiking blog I often read, author Tom Mangan polled his readers, asking the question What wildlife have you seen on the trail? Apparently Tom had to take down that poll due to technical difficulties, but it essentially listed a number of animals one might commonly see in [...]
