The Collection is Basic

I was strolling through Target the other day (really just wandering through the wine aisle) and was instantly attracted like a moth to the light by the Rosé section. It’s that time of year (as if I really need an excuse), so I wanted to see what was new on the shelves. I decided on…

Heading to Boomtown

When weeks are feeling WAY too long, you just need to take pause with pizza, self-care, and a terrible show (like Married at First Sight). Luckily, I had a bottle of Boomtown Cabernet Sauvignon 2017 to keep me company. In 2003, Wisconsin natives Chad Johnson and Corey Braunel left their corporate jobs and moved to…

Hooray for Sicilian Syrah

It’s #TipsyThursday, and even though I’m still recovering from a cold, I’m thinking back on last week when I was looking fine and sipping on some wine – some 2017 Cusumano Syrah, to be exact. Cusumano Winery is spearheaded by two brothers who run the operations closely with their father, Francesco Cusumano, and craft the…

Rosé in Winter

One of my favorite things about living in Miami is the weather – especially the fact that I can shamelessly drink “Rosé all day” without batting an eye 😉 Today, I poured a glass of Olema’s 2017 Rosé. The Story of Olema from Amici Cellars | Olema Wines on Vimeo. The vision behind every Olema…

Kirkland Does Pinot Grigio

Everyone knows I’m a Costco-aficionado, so I’m always happy to try their Kirkland-branded items—from pizza to cheese to wine. During my last trip, I came across a Rosé (check out my review here) and a Pinot Grigio, so I grabbed a bottle of each to try for you! The 2017 Kirkland Signature Friuli Pinot Grigio…

A is for Acacia

I have never really been a big fan of Chardonnay. I used to drink it at my parent’s house, since it was free, but since then I haven’t really touched the stuff. The other day, I decided to grab a bottle of A by Acacia Chardonnay 2015 and give it a whirl. Headed by general…

A Glass of Galilee

As you may know, one of my favorite places is Costco. It’s my affordable wine and cheese mecca. During my last trip there, I was intrigued by the label of Recanati’s Cabernet Sauvignon 2017 (I’m always attracted to shiny things). Then I noticed that this wine is from Galilee, Israel, a location I had never…

Cheers to Luna Nuda!

I am always down for a celebration. Whether it’s toasting to surviving Monday or clinking glasses over an anniversary, I am always happy to pop some bubbly. So when I heard that my friends at Luna Nuda Wines were changing the label on their Prosecco (on May 1, to be exact), I had to break…

Pausing with Portillo

This one’s for you, World Malbec Day! After a long day at work, there’s nothing like putting your feet up on the (artsy) coffee table and having a nice glass of wine. That’s what I did with a bottle of Bodegas Salentein Portillo Malbec 2017. I had Bodegas Salentein’s Killka Collection Malbec not too long…

It’s all Coming up Rosés

Even though it’s always “yes way, Rosé” in Miami, my neighbors to the north are finally getting some decent weather for some spring time sipping. In celebration of spring and all things Rosé, I pulled out my most festive accouterments for the occasion and a bottle of Planeta Rosé. Sambuca di Sicilia is the estate…
