Exploring the Finger Lakes at Camp

When you think of the best wine growing regions in America, where does your mind wander to? Some may say California or Oregon but there is way more depth to winemaking in this country—think east coast. Yes, east coast. This past month, I spent a few days in the Finger Lakes, NY and learned why…

Sipping in a Yellow Submarine

Everyone knows I love orange wine, so I was curious about this fun themed-labeled Dominio de Punctum 20000 Leguas. Situated in the town of Las Pedroñeras and at the north end of La Mancha, Dominio de Punctum is a family-owned company founded by three siblings. They distinguish themselves with their exclusive Estate and Winery production…

Bomb Dom Pérignon

When I got my hands on this bottle of Dom Pérignon 1990, I knew exactly the occasion to save it for. I planned on sharing it with my BFF Maritza for her birthday since it was her birth year wine. Unfortunately her birthday was back in December when I had a terrible stomach flu which…

Heading into the weekend like…🛵

I grabbed myself this Subject to Change Wine Co. FKA Mixtape Real Heads Will Know 2020 because it looked like fun in a bottle. Subject to Change makes wines with a strong character that are unique, fresh, and sometimes offbeat. From Mendocino, California, the winery sources grapes exclusively from organic vineyards and makes the wines…

It’s About Time!

So this post has been a long time coming. I took the photo in January 2021, assuming that I would drink both Gut Oggau bottles (I originally drank the Weinland Weiss Theodora 2019) and post it in a relatively fast pace, but whelp, I was wrong. It was one of those things where you kind…

Everything Happens for a Riesling

Years ago, I used to be one of those people who thought all Riesling was sweet. Boy, was I glad to be wrong. Over the years, I’ve tried many styles of Rieslings from different regions. One of my latest bottles (a whole liter) was Weingut Brand Riesling Feinherb 2018. Founded in 1891, Brand winery has…

Taittinger for the Holidays

November is always a busy—but celebratory—month for me. Between my wedding anniversary, family birthdays, Thanksgiving, and the upcoming holiday season, life feels a bit like a whirlwind. Luckily, the one thing I don’t have to worry about is which libation will be in my glass to toast all these special occasions—it’s always Champagne Taittinger. “This…

My Heart is in Calon

Fighting off the Monday blues by dreaming of my sips in Ireland and that fabulous wine cellar. One of the bottles I pulled out to taste was Château Calon-Ségur Saint-Estèphe Grand Cru Classé 1990. Calon-Ségur is one of the oldest properties in the Médoc (in Bordeaux, for those not familiar)—dating back to the Middle Ages….

Queen of the Castle

Feeling like the queen of the castle at Ashford Estates, sipping on this Pittnauer ‘Konig’ Rosé 2020, which I bought at The Lamplight Wine Bar. (Side note: The lady at this bar is awesome! Was chatting with her for a while) Based in Austria, Pittnauer has become a family affair. In 1959, Lorenz Pittnauer laid…

Floating with my Raft

I’m all about women supporting women, so I’m always happy to reach for wine made by female winemakers. One of my favorites is Raft Wines, created by Jennifer Reichardt. I recently grabbed this Raft Wines JONQUILLE Love Ranch Viognier 2020 for a day by the pool. As you guys may remember, I drank their Fleur…
