#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

#WineStudio: Feeling Inclined to Fetzer Wines

Happy May! I was a bit silent throughout April as I was freaking out, narrowing down my law school choices, and finally settling on attending Temple’s law school this August. Now that I have made my decision, I plan on spend these next few months focusing on something that may fall to the wayside once I start school again: wine. In addition, I’m trying to finish all the blogs I started in March and never got around to editing. Here’s my first one all about Fetzer Wines, a name with which I was familiar before starting the January #WineStudio. Continue reading

#WineStudio: There’s Nothing Satanic About Being Organic

In 2018 words like ‘organic,’ ‘biodynamic,’ and ‘sustainable’ get thrown around interchangeably, and I feel like half the time people who use them don’t even know what they mean. This is particularly true about wine. What does it mean that your wine is made with organic grapes? Will that impact the taste? Does that mean a higher price point? Are you giving up quality for some vague word that may not really mean that much? Continue reading

#WineStudio: Feeling the Echo of Prosecco

Valdobbiadene. While I had experience with the words ‘prosecco,’ ‘Italy,’ and ‘wine’ before 2017, the first word of this post was one with which I was not as familiar. I’ve been interested in wine almost from the moment I turned 21. Four years in, I know more than I did before, and still have a ton of learning ahead of me. Continue reading
