Return to Wine Blogging

Date: Fri, Nov 21, 2008 Wine Tasting

My apologies for the lack of current articles this fall. It's been a busier harvest than usual. First, our harvest was even more time and labor-consuming than usual . . . I have some great ideas for 2009 that I am anxious to implement! We will soon have a Featured Customer series, customer polls, an adopted vine, instructions on how to make your own aroma kit, and other activities.

Just Desserts: Serving Stickies for the Holidays

Date: Mon, Nov 17, 2008 Wine Tasting

Many people just pour it over some high-quality vanilla bean ice cream with some fresh berries or shaved dark chocolate. But a quality dessert wine is so much more than just a sweet pick-me-up. At the end of a meal, a complex, layered dessert wine is both dessert and digestif, particularly when served with some crisp fruit and mellow cheeses. Some dessert wines, particularly the whites, are mellow enough to be served with roasted quail and other savory treats. During the holidays, a good dessert wine makes an instant course for a quickly pulled together dinner, and can even be used as part of the preparation.
