#WineStudio: The Italian Battalion

Hello and happy fall! I have been a bit M.I.A. on this blog for a couple of months as I acclimated to law school. In between reading, re-reading, outlining, making flashcards, and occasionally having a few sips of wine, I didn’t have any time to write about it. However, I finally set aside some time to catch up and hope to have a blog post every other week. Up first, my experience with Montefioralle Wine. Continue reading

#WineStudio: Drink Pink

Before I started participating in #WineStudio, I have to say that I didn’t drink much rosé. Despite the alluring color, many of the rosés I came across seemed dull, flabby, and more of a marketing ploy than anything else. I think I’ve shared all of this before, but despite having good things to say about some rosés in recent years, I always had that thought nagging me in the back of my mind. However, #WineStudio, the interactive wine education program which I participate in, recently changed that. No session highlighted the diversity of rosé more than the one from earlier this summer.

A Toast to Left Coast

Sometime around the end of May or early June I received samples from Left Coast, a wine estate located in the Willamette Valley. I’ve had the opportunity to try wines from this winery once before, but this time I was opening bottles ideal for spring and summer sipping that seemed a bit more off the beaten path than the usual summer fare. As I board a flight to Vegas today, these seem like they could be perfect choices for the hundred degree weather I am about to subject myself to. Continue reading

Feeling Swell with Murrieta’s Well

Not too long ago I was contacted by Snooth to participate in a virtual tasting. A week after that, five wines from Murrieta’s Well showed up on my doorstep to be tasted on July 10th. Now, I enjoy wine, but five bottles in one evening is pushing it a little bit as a solo drinker. In order to not be entirely sloshed by the time we opened the third bottle, I decided to throw a girls night. Continue reading

Drink Away on Bastille Day

If you’ve been following my blog for any length of time, you know I am a Francophile. Paris was the best city I visited while studying abroad, I’m practicing my (very horrendous) French on Duolingo every morning, and I think I’ve watched most of the French language options on Netflix. One French thing I haven’t experienced is Bastille Day. Continue reading

#WineStudio: Walking the Line with Orange Wine

I consider myself someone open to trying new things, whether that be food, wine, travel, or just a new theme park ride where I don’t know what to expect. Recently, I feel like I’ve been in a rut when it comes to wine. I’ve been sticking to the things I know I like, and I haven’t really explored anything very different this year. That changed with a recent #WineStudio. Continue reading

#WineStudio: I Can Tell That We Are Gonna Be Friends

If you’ve followed my blog for any time at all, I’m sure you’ve heard me mention Pedroncelli, a winery that has had a great relationship with #WineStudio and all of its participants. However, this time around we viewed this winery through the lens of the women owned wineries of Sonoma County. Continue reading
