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…

Yo hago lo que me da la gana

Yo hago lo que me da la gana—like drink white wine in the winter. Last weekend, while the rest of the country was covered in snow, I enjoyed a crisp day outside in my shorts (sorry to rub it in) with Quinta de Couselo’s Turonia Albariño 2018. This wine comes from the Rías Baixas appellation…

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…

Bimini Beach Wines

I feel like I need a vacation from my vacation because it didn’t last long enough. I was finally able to reflect and write my Bimini sips and tips guide, so make sure to check it out if you plan on heading there. I didn’t have much time to gather up a wine selection, since…

Summer Like a Spaniard

With summer in the air, all I can think about is where I am going to travel to next. There are so many places to visit worldwide, but I can’t help but reminisce about that summer I visited Spain. From the sights and sounds to the food and wine, I was enamored by la patria—España….

Renovations & Rosé

You’re going to get an apology upfront. I’ve been a little MIA recently, but for a good reason. I purchased my first home—a charming fixer upper—and have been consumed by renovation projects left and right. Luckily, I’m finally settling in, and can focus more on wining and writing. My first bottle back to it is…

Sippin’ in Spain

Because of my 2018 goal of expanding my palate and trying more wines, I’ve recently spent a lot of time in Spain (not actually in Spain, but drinking Spanish wines). With Miami’s hot climate, I drink a lot of cool white wines, so I had to give this Do Ferreiro Albariño Rebisaca a try. The…

Tempranillo Tuesdays

I’ve been exploring different regions and varietals, so lately I’ve been stuck in Spain. Located on the Iberian Peninsula, Spain has over 2.9 million acres of vines planted—making it the most widely planted wine producing nation and the third largest producer of wine in the world. The other night, I sipped on some Bodegas Faustino…

Vino + Comida + El Carajo

I’m always down to check out restaurants with a great wine selection, so when my good friend, and wine mentor, mentioned el Carajo for dinner – I was game! Located in an inconspicuous gas station (yes, a gas station), this tiny Spanish tapas restaurant packs a bunch of flavor on the palate with its food…

Kickin’ it with Kirkland

If you read my blog, you know that I’m a big Costco fan. From seafood to cheese to wine, I’m team wholesale. I had a bottle of Kirkland Signature 2011 Gran Reserva, Ribera del Duero on my hands from a past house party, so I decided to break it out for a steak dinner. The…
