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…

Backyard Bordeaux

With this summer being an interesting one—to say the least—I’ve been making the most of time spent outdoors. From the backyard pool to my lush garden to the serene beach, I’ve constantly been outside soaking up every bit of normalcy and sun I can get. Last weekend, I was strutting around the yard in some…

Wine Country with Pelaverga

While the rest of the country is dealing with snow, we have been having such pleasant weather—lower temperatures and less humidity. I certainly can’t complain! I’ve been enjoying the seasonal change on my recently constructed DIY deck (by yours truly) with my new patio furniture. I like to call it my “wine country.” My latest…

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…

A Taste of Argentina with Luigi Bosca

As much as I would love to spend my time traveling the world and drinking wine, it’s not my everyday reality. Luckily, wine has a way of transporting you anywhere in the world with just one sip. This past week, I was invited to a Bodega Luigi Bosca wine tasting at The Setai, Miami Beach,…

Orange you Glad I Didn’t say Orange

This week, I had quite a few comments about orange wine after posting my “Orange wine is the new rosé” shirt. Some good and inquisitive, some VERY opinionated (overly opinionated, if you ask MY opinion). In celebration of National Orange Wine Day, I wanted to highlight a new orange wine (to me) that was delicious….

No Risk, No Reward

Life is all about calculated risks – measuring out the risk versus the reward of each and every choice we take. I calculated the risk of drinking this whole bottle of 2018 Calculated Risk Chardonnay ;p I couldn’t find much information about the history or background of this wine, except that it’s made by Austin…

A Secret Garden with Rosé

You know that I’m about that Rosé all day attitude, so I couldn’t help but pass up the opportunity to visit La Centrale’s seasonal Rosé garden. Inspired by the Isle of Capri’s oceanfront cliff side gardens, their pop-up Rosé garden is tucked on the second floor and draped with blossoming bougainvillea flowers. I stopped by…

National Pinot Grigio Day

I’m all about celebrating special occasions—from the smallest moments to major milestones—so I couldn’t wait to celebrate National Pinot Grigio Day on May 17. In anticipation of the holiday, I put together a glam picnic “how-to” with Mezzacorona Pinot Grigio as the centerpiece.   Mezzacorona has been crafting Estate Grown wines since 1904. Located at…

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…
