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

#WineStudio: The Italian Stallions

I cannot believe this, but I am just about caught up with all of my #WineStudio posts. During the holidays, I was opening up bottles left and right, but it was hard to find the time to write about them. After bubbles upon bubbles, we shifted into a #WineStudio that was all about Italian reds with Terlato Wines and Ca’Marcanda. This was a session that highlighted wine at every price point and wine for every type of drinker. Continue reading

Thirsty Thursday: Wake Me Up

I like almost anything in a martini glass. Cosmos I could live without and options that are more sugar than booze are something I could do without, but in general, I enjoy all kinds of martini. One of my favorites is an espresso martini. Continue reading

#WineStudio: The Endlessness of Breathless Wines

During one recent #WineStudio, we dove deep with Breathless Sparkling Wines, where three sisters and their winemaker, Penny Gadd-Coster, dedicate themselves to make sparkling wine in the traditional method. Not only is this a women-owned winery, the label also features a woman who is meant to represent the sisters’ mother Martha. Family owned and led by women, I can’t think of a better team to represent everything that has driven 2018 forward. Continue reading
