  1. La Cana 2014 Albarino: A Wine to Drink in May When it Feels like July

    With temperatures climbing into the mid-eighties and humidity on the rise, this holiday weekend   practically guarantees you’ll be peeling your shirt from your back as you exit the car. Generally, as a wine drinker, you’d be reaching for a Pinot Grigio, Sauvignon Blanc or even a Vinho Verde but you are having a small gathering of friends instead of a large party and you need something a bit more elegant.

  2. Canella - Bellini in a Bottle – Just right for this Weekend

    Nearly two years ago I went on a trip to Italy to drink wine. I know... it’s a tough job.  Anyway, one night my colleagues and I were at a little bar in Tuscany and I tasted a Bellini made from Prosecco and fresh pulp from peaches picked that day. It was juicy, slightly bubbly with a beautiful pink hue and it tasted delicious.

  3. Perseverance Old Vine Zinfandel 2013: Double up Zinfandel for a Chilly, Wet Weekend

    Double Up for a Buck

    In a couple of days the weather is going to turn wet and cold. Sad to say after a day like Thursday which reached the high seventies, we must endure another meteorologically challenged weekend. Unfortunately for us wine lovers, the words cool and refreshing may not be what you are considering when drinking wine this weekend.  You might want to forgo the crisp whites or thirst quenching Roses for something a bit more bold and substantial.  How about an old vine Zinfandel that could warm you up a bit?

    The 2013 Perseverance Old Vine Zinfandel is a slightly lighter bodied Zinfandel that still retains the deep, rich purple color of the classic California wine.  Dark plum and cherry fruit and spice with a mocha finish help deliver a perfect wine for this weekend.  So whether you are cooking sausages, burgers, or hot dogs on the grill (and possibly dodging raindrops) or enjoying burritos inside while binge watching your favorite show, this wine is going to satisfy.

  4. Rey Campero Mezcal

    Rey Campero Mezcal

    This is a repost of a blog I do for a Mexican tourism blog called Dave Miller's Mexico (https://davemillersmexico.wordpress.com). Once a year, I travel to Mexico where I visit several Palenques (Mezcal Distilleries) and taste dozens of Mezcals. We had to drive about 2-3 hours up winding dirt roads and through a river bed to get to Rey Campero, but it was well worth the trip. On a happy note, we will be carrying most of these Mezcals by the end of this week.

  5. La Mouliniere and Cote Mas Roses: To Mom from France with Love

    Some may think it is stereotypical to pick a Rose for a blog entry for Mother’s Day.  I beg to differ. The Roses that I’m writing about may be a variation of a shade of pink, but that does not mean these wines are syrupy and one dimensional. Guys, if you are listening. Not all women like Pink Moscato or White Zinfandel anymore than all men like Budweiser or Jack Daniels. These Roses are dry (often like Moms’sense of humor) but refreshing and full of flavor.

    Our May Double Up for a Buck event just began and we have two new Roses on the sale
