Vino Sips at Vinosummit

Whenever I’m passionate about something, I just dive right in and immerse myself in it. I started blogging about wine as a self-taught hobby but started taking classes and going to tastings whenever possible. The world of wine is so expansive and there is always something new to learn, so I was thrilled to see…

Rosé with my Bebé

When summer nights are bearable, I hang in the backyard with my Bodhi Bear – the best red Doberman you’ll ever meet. We throw a ball around, I scratch her neck a bit, and she let’s me sip on some wine. We complement each other perfectly. During our latest summer night hang session, I popped…

Hooray for Chardonnay

Even though Chardonnay is one of the most diverse—and most planted—white wine grapes in the world, I am just giving it the respect it deserves. Many years ago, I didn’t like the buttery, oaky flavors and just wrote it off. Since I’ve been on this wino journey, I’ve given it other tries—with different regions and…

Sauv Blanc and a Weekend Prayer

It’s finally Friday! And after the hectic week I’ve had, I’m excited to sit back and decompress with some wine. I had a special delivery and opened up a 2018 Kenwood Vineyards Six Ridges Sauvignon Blanc. Kenwood Vineyards was established in the 1970s in the very heart of Sonoma, where together with a handful of…

California Cuveé

I’ve been dying to go to California, but unfortunately have not been able to make it out there recently. Luckily, my Winestyr box brought me a 2014 Calluna Vineyards Cuveé from Sonoma to sip on. Winestyr spends countless hours searching for the best small wine producers. Based in Sonoma County, California, their mission is to…

Endless Summer with Winestyr

Even though fall is around the corner (you know you’ve already seen Halloween merch at stores), I can’t help but keep grasping at summer. I live in Miami, where it’s oh so hot, so it’s truly an endless summer (except for that one week of “winter” in January). I take advantage, prance around in my…

Yappy Hour

Anyone who knows me know that I love dogs. From big clumsy pups to small fluffy ones, I can’t help but love them more than humans. So when I saw this Frenchie Napoleon Cabernet Sauvignon, I just had to try it. Frenchie Winery is from the Boisset Collection. It is located in Northern California and…

Sloths & Wine

This weekend in St. Petersburg, I visited the most charming wine and beer spot – Hawthorne Bottle Shoppe. With a cute sloth as a mascot, a good sense of humor, and a great variety of booze, I knew that this place was a winner. The first bottle we tried was a 2016 Alexander Valley Vineyards…
