  1. For Late Summer Sunshine Enjoyment
    September 20, 2017

    Not yet ready to give up on patio dining? Don't.

    There is still enough warmth in the evening sunsets to continue some alfresco dining just a little bit longer.

    From the hills of Friuli, this refreshing Italian white wine is all you will need to relax with the last of the summer sun and even through autumn.

    It is perfect alongside the simple yet refreshing ingredients of a primavera pasta tossed in garlic and olive oil. Or, as an aperitif, enjoy it alongside a...

  2. HOT OFF THE PRESS: NY Times Features Our Pinot Noir Pick Of The Year!
    September 19, 2017

    In August, we featured the 2015 Big Table Farm Pinot Noir as our Pinot Pick Of The Year.  And, hot off the press, The New York Times today released an article featuring Big Table Farm as a pioneer in Oregon's Willamette Valley!

  3. Spanish Sensation For Your Next Crustacean Creation!
    September 18, 2017

    We are entering the peak of lobster season in North America, which means supply will start increasing and pricing will begin to level off.

    If you are not in the mood for a buttery Chardonnay for your next crustacean creation, we highly recommend the 2014 Cune, "Monopole Classico" Blanco Seco.

    This Spanish white is mostly Viura (90%) with a dash of Manzanilla (10%). This blend is a throwback to the winery's old-style monopole, thus the "Classico" reference.

    Pinhook's bourbons are so sought after, this particular release of Bourbon Empire will probably be gone before you are finished reading this feature.  This American whiskey was an instant classic the moment it burst out of the gate a few...

  5. California's Best Kept Secret!
    September 13, 2017

    We love this wine! It is the best kept secret in California. We have featured this wine before, but the newly released 2014 vintage is a jaw-dropping Burgundian doppelganger.

    You may recognize the "Hudson Vineyard" designation on labels of some of the finest California whites. That's because Hudson Vineyards sells its grapes to a "who's who" roster such as Kistler, Kongsgaard, Ramey, and Cakebread to name a few. That's an impressive resume for some of the most coveted fruit in all...
