Distasteful Wine = Wine Slushies

  I do not like talking bad about a wine, so I decided to use the term “I’m not able to appreciate the wine at this moment”. However, there comes a time when a wine is not good. It is not about not being able to appreciate a wine or your pallet is not matureContinue reading “Distasteful Wine = Wine Slushies”

Mariana Vineyard – 2011 Sauvignon Blanc Paso Robles – A Wine Worth Writing About

Reflection We are relaxing after a very busy work weekend, watching “Regarding Henry” and enjoying our Digiorno (must be spoken with an accent 🙂 ) and salad. Watching this movie, it is difficult not to reflect on your life and how important it is to appreciate the good things life has to offer.

Trummer’s Coffee and Wine Bar’s Wine Flight

  It’s sunny, hot and too late to drive to a vineyard. Desperately wanting to try something new, I remembered a coffee and wine bar that opened last year called Trummer’s Coffee and Wine Bar, Gainsville, VA; coffee and wine, my two main indulgences.

Pearmund Cellars 2009 Celebration – Breaks the Barrier!

Hellooo I’m back! It’s been three months since I had creative juices flowing and the desire to blog. Due to medical issues, my writing consisted only of tweeting. Plus, if I’m not sipping, I’m not writing.

Potomac Point Winery & Vineyard

Hidden Jewel with a Female Touch It was love at first. Years ago, I discovered this hidden jewel buried deep in the back, against the wall at the massive Dulles Expo Center, VA.

“The Computer Ate My Paper” – New Jersey 2013 Harvest Wine Festival

New Jersey 2013 Harvest Wine Festival Hilton, Short Hills, NJ Weeks of searching for this wine review and still MIA. This is why I prefer handwriting my reviews before typing.  Handwriting feeds my obsession with hard back journals and stationary. Writing is exhilarating: seeing your thoughts on paper, hurried penmanship from words spilling out andContinue reading ““The Computer Ate My Paper” – New Jersey 2013 Harvest Wine Festival”
