Drinking Domaine de Bellevue La Justice

There’s little I love more than being outdoors, relaxing in nature. A glass of wine outdoors isn’t too shabby either. My latest outdoor sip was Domaine de Bellevue La Justice IGP Val de Loire 2019. About Domaine de Bellevue Not far from the Atlantic coastline, in Grétigné in Pays Nantais, France, is the domaine of…

Best Wine with Fish

Who doesn’t love a good wine and fish pairing? I know I do (even though I won’t be eating this barracuda). I went fishing the last time I was in Bimini, which got me thinking about all the types of wine with fish pairings out there. One solid rule is to pair wines based off…

Exploring Wine in 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 Orange Wine in a Yellow Submarine

Everyone knows I love orange wine, so I was curious about this fun themed-labeled Dominio de Punctum 20000 Leguas.

They distinguish themselves with their exclusive Estate and…

Drinking the Best Champagne with Bomb Dom Pérignon

When I got my hands on this bottle of Dom Pérignon Champagne 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…

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…

Everything Happens for a Riesling with Brand Winery

Years ago, I used to be one of those people who thought all Riesling was sweet. Boy, was I glad to be wrong. Over the years, I’ve tried many styles of Rieslings from different regions. One of my latest bottles (a whole liter) was Weingut Brand Winery Riesling Feinherb 2018. Founded in 1891, Brand winery…

Taittinger Comtes and Nocturne for the Holidays

November is always a busy—but celebratory—month for me. Between my wedding anniversary, family birthdays, Thanksgiving, and the upcoming holiday season, life feels a bit like a whirlwind. Luckily, the one thing I don’t have to worry about is which libation will be in my glass to toast all these special occasions—it’s always Champagne Taittinger. “This…

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….
