red wine mouth no more

Date: Thu, Oct 23, 2008 Wine Tasting

Today, I stumbled upon Wine Wipes, which looks to be a great wine product.  Kimberly Walker developed these in an attempt to erase the embarrassing “grape mouth,” or purple stain, that you get when drinking red wine.  I was concerned that their orange blossom flavor may interfere with the taste of my wine or food [...]

1 wine cube equals 2 bottles and a good time

Date: Mon, Oct 20, 2008 Wine Tasting

Today while shopping at Target, Mrs. Grapeinabottle and I stumbled upon the Wine Cube. We both acted as if we weren’t looking at this Target Brand boxed wine, when I finally broke the silence and declared that I wanted to give it a try. I must admit I have never tried a boxed [...]

four corners shiraz ends better than four quarters with the colts

Date: Sun, Oct 19, 2008 Wine Tasting

Tonight, as I sit watching the Packers destroy the Colts and my fantasy football team championship hopes fading, I turned the other cheek and enjoyed a bottle of Four Corners Shiraz from Australia with Mrs. Grapeinabottle. This Shiraz, along with the company of Mrs. Grapeinabottle, definitely made the game better. Four [...]

trinity oaks pinot noir for a greener earth

Date: Thu, Oct 16, 2008 Wine Tasting

Mrs. Grapeinabottle and I enjoyed a nice bottle of Trinity Oaks Pinot Noir last night while watching the Presidential debate.  This pinot noir lived up to its slogan, “Trinity Oaks… the food wine” as we paired it with a barbeque chicken pizza with red onions and roasted peppers.  Trinity Oaks Pinot Noir was refreshing,  virtually [...]

Date: Wed, Oct 15, 2008 Wine Tasting

In today’s post I wanted to take a more serious side by writing about poverty in the community I live in, and encouraging people to become an active part to the solution.  The Coalition for the Homeless of Central Florida is an organization that was created in 1987 and now has become the largest provider [...]

florida wine

Date: Sun, Oct 12, 2008 Wine Tasting

I have decided to add a once a week (or every other week) feature on local wine, wine stores, wine bars, or just wine purchased around Florida.  Of course almost all the wine I currently consume is bought locally, but I want to delve more into the Central Florida Wine Culture. I am planning to [...]

free wine trip down under

Date: Tue, Oct 7, 2008 Wine Tasting

As I was watching the Food Network show Feasting On Waves, hosted by Alton Brown, a McWilliams Wine commercial appeared, offering one lucky winner the chance to be a winemaker for a day in Australia.  I found Mcwilliams Shiraz 2006 on sale at the local wine store on sale (buy one, get one free), and [...]

Date: Mon, Oct 6, 2008 Wine Tasting

To continue from my last post, in which we left off pre-dining experience: The Ravenous Pig is an American gastropub in Orlando that did not disappoint. Of course we had wine; my wife and I split a bottle of Colombo Cote Du Rhone, while our dining companions had a Sauvignon Blanc and [...]

vice presidential debate is in need of wine

Date: Thu, Oct 2, 2008 Wine Tasting

As the Vice Presidential debate nears tonight we are anxiously awaiting the “show.” On the menu: Biden versus Palin, and we find ourselves, Mr. and Mrs. Grapeinabottle, without a single bottle of wine in the house. We each thought the other party would stop at the store and fill this need, but I guess [...]

what a night for wine

Date: Tue, Sep 23, 2008 Wine Tasting

I’m glad I had this bottle of Ashwood Grove Shiraz 2006 tonight. I was registering for a work conference and discovered the hotel was fully booked. Mrs. Grapeinabottle and I needed to find a solution to this dilemma. Wine always helps us brainstorm to a creative answer. The conference web site [...]

Date: Sat, Sep 20, 2008 Wine Tasting
