#WineStudio: Getting Through the Day with Some Rosé

While the dog days of summer are behind us, the last thing most drinkers are now thinking of is rosé.

I’m a Maryland girl. That means I know a lot about things like Old Bay, crab cakes, and snow cones, but that my knowledge is lacking in areas such as authentic Mexican food and what a real Texas steak should … Continue reading
