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

#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 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

Foodie Fashion: A Cupcake for Every Day

There aren’t many things I love about working in the retail industry. People return items they purchased ten years ago and wore down until it was totally unrecognizable; some get mad when you don’t say hello immediately; some get mad when you say hello. The list goes on. However, I will say that working in retail has turned me into a shopper for better or for worse. I won’t blow an entire paycheck on a new pair of shoes, but I have learned that a lot more people recognize someone’s sense of style than I previously thought. 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
