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…

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…

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….

Sipping with my raft

RAFT [n.]: 1. A community of waterfowl, like ducks. 2. A community of friends and family, to keep you afloat. I enjoyed this wine thanks to my friend Drew, sipping on it with my bestie Maritza and my hubby. A true “raft” if I ever saw one. The definition is found on the bottle and…

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…

Wrapping + Wine

The holiday season is in full swing and I’m in full-blown gift-wrapping mode. Since childhood, my family would load up on all the gift-wrapping fixings the day after Christmas in preparation for the next year. From ornament name tags to ribbons and bows, my mom and aunt would pull out all the stops and I…

Dangerou$ Hobbie$

So I’ve been holding onto this post for a while—since my birthday weekend in October, to be exact—   because I knew it would take some time to write and it deserved some love. I’ve started a new and dangerous hobby—finding old vintages on WineBid. I’ve been spending way too much time, and money, there (nervous…
