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…

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…

Sun and All That with My Pét-nat

It’s been a busy spring thus far, so I was thrilled to spend some time on the water—my happy place. For a day of paddle boarding in Biscayne Bay, I brought Lunaria Ramoro Pinot Grigio Spumante Biodinamico Brut Nature 2020 for the ride. Founded in 1964 by Camillo Zulli and six other producers, the Cantina…

Inauguration Day Wine Picks

These last few years have been a culmination of countless what-in-the-actual-fuck moments from the White House. It truly felt (and still feels) like we’re living in “The Truman Show” with aliens watching down us in shock and awe. A social experiment gone bad. I started writing out all the appalling things President Trump has said…

Hallowine

From bubbly Champagne goddess to cackling witch, my Halloween was a but different this year but it was well spent amongst a handful of close friends with lots of wine. ⠀ We started off by popping some Ruinart rosé, because who doesn’t love Champagne, followed by Viña González Bastías Naranjo Valle de Maule, a fun…

Woman Crush Wednesday + Wine

About last night…#WomanCrushWednesday was in full force with my beffies. We had our first girl’s night since, well, before the pandemic started. And let me tell you, the Zoom happy hours and daily messaging does not compare to cackling and catching up in real life. For this special, and now rare, occasion, we busted out…

Natural Wines—So Trending Right Now

Natural wines have been all the buzz recently, but what are they? I stopped by a wine lab at Florida Wine Academy to get the skinny on the latest wine fab. The fabulous Nicole Ramos was leading the lab and gave us a lot to sip on—both metaphorically and physically. Natural wines are… Farmed sustainably,…

Master Somm Certified-Sips at Disney Springs

One of my favorite things to do during the holiday season is head up to Orlando and visit Disney World. They have the best decorations, the weather is so crisp, and, honestly, it’s just magical place to be. To kick off the festivities, I stopped by Wine Bar George in Disney Springs for some dinner…

Fa La La La Fizz

With Hanukkah upon us and Christmas around the corner, ‘tis the season to celebrate! I’m counting it down with some Thibaut-Janisson Virginia FIZZ. I first had this wine a little over a year ago when I went to Virginia to experience a harvest dinner during Virginia Wine Month. It was the first sip of the…

A Wining Easter Basket

Who else is prepping for #Easter? I’m stuffing my basket with some ABC Fine Wine & Spirits Sourced & Certified wines, like this Giorgi Platino Blue Demi Sec from the Lombardy region of north central Italy. Sourced & Certified is a collection of wines that ABC buys directly from the maker at a lower price…
