Summer Sips and wines under $20 for Dad

Date: Fri, Jun 19, 2009 Wine Tasting Winery Blogs Wine Business

It is HOT out there! Or at least, it is getting there. With the hot hot heat comes a shift in my drinking habits - big bold reds take a back seat to dry rose and fruity, floral whites. But lets face it - the Dad types out there might be loath to be drinkin’ [...] Related posts:

Sangria: Summer Sippin’ for the red-wine-tarians…

Date: Thu, Jun 4, 2009 Wine Tasting Winery Blogs Wine Business

In general, I prefer red wine. I have come to understand, appreciate, and respect the occasional white wine, but given the choice, I rarely go for white. Summer is a tough time for us red wine lovers, however. Partially because a lot of red wines are heavier than whites, but mostly because they are served [...] Related posts:

Lancaster Estate and an “epic” wine experience

Date: Wed, May 6, 2009 Wine Tasting Winery Blogs Wine Business

When I first started working at AmericanWinery.com, I basically doused myself in American wine. Not literally. But you know, I dived in, I immersed myself, I did my best to learn about wines and wineries outside of my little Walla Walla bubble. And I discovered that America makes DARN good wine. Let me tell you about [...] Related posts:

Simplifying Sustainabilty

Date: Thu, Apr 23, 2009 Wine Tasting Winery Blogs Wine Business

Despite existing standards for varying degrees of “green” certification for wineries and vineyards, an earth-conscious consumer is faced with a good amount of logo-deciphering when shopping for sustainable wines. There are quite a few third party certifying agents, and some even vary by state. I’ve seen at least four different logos for “green certification,” and [...] Related posts:

New uses for old wine barrels

Date: Mon, Apr 20, 2009 Wine Tasting Winery Blogs Wine Business

I recently came across an ingenious wine rack at a friends house. It was made out of an old wine barrel! I love items that are really unique and was a little jealous to say the least. Wanting to find my own I did what any normal millennial will do. A quick google search (0.42 seconds to [...] No related posts.

A Tax Toast, or, “Here’s to the IRS!”

Date: Tue, Apr 14, 2009 Wine Tasting Winery Blogs Wine Business

While I do not recommend imbibing whilst working on your taxes, once you’ve completed the arduous task you deserve a deduction-busting beverage. I invented this little Tax Toast wine-tail as the perfect remedy for your IRS headache. 1 oz. vodka 1/4 oz. Triple Sec 3/4 oz. pureed fruit (blueberries, raspberries, peaches, whatever tickles your fancy) 4 oz. sparkling wine [...] Related posts:

Yes, I just made up a word - but for good reason. What is a winecliQer, you may ask? A winecliQer is a wine lover, a wine activist - that friend whose opinion about wine you trust, whose suggestions you seek out. A winecliQer is one who is open to trying new wines, who is [...] Related posts:
