Winter in New Mexico

Over the years I’ve spent the holidays in a mix of places, from the exotic beaches of Thailand, to the city streets of New York and of course, the comfort of my family’s home in Northern California. This year, we followed the cool, piñon-scented air to New Mexico. I’d visited the state in the past…

Winemaker Spotlight: Chris Condos

There’s a definite cool factor about Chris Condos. Perhaps it’s that he decided to try his hand at winemaking at the age of 25 or maybe it’s the fact that he had a brief DJ-ing stint in college. It could be his relaxed, organic approach to winemaking or that without a vineyard of their own,…

Never Shop Hangry

When we spent Christmas in New York City as a family last year, we drew names and did all of our shopping on Christmas Eve. It could have been more fun, but we arrived at the store thirty minutes before closing which, needless to say, made the experience slightly stressful. When I do my holiday…

A Lesson on Lillet

apértif: an alcoholic drink taken before a meal to stimulate the appetite; a French word derived from the Latin verb aperire, which means “to open”. While I don’t drink it often, there’s something I love about an apértif. The French have made sipping it before supper an everyday thing, but it’s always seemed a little more special…

Find of the Week

2016 Sauvignon Republic Marlborough NZ Sauvignon Blanc, $7.99 Trader Joe’s Do you have high expectations for an $8 wine? I admittedly don’t. While I don’t sip expensive wine on a typical weeknight, I don’t drink bottom shelf either. I’ve always found $15 to be a safe starting point. Before you jump to wine snob conclusions,…

Drink Pink: A Rosé Update

Rosé season is in full-swing and I couldn’t be happier! If you’re not already on board the rosé train (or rather, yacht), you may want to hop aboard. Leave your judgements at the dock because what was once considered a saccharine supermarket wine for “basic white girls” and maybe even your grandma, is making a…

If Wines Were Dateable…

Wine has been romanticized for quite some time, and for good reason. My running joke is that wine makes the perfect partner because it can never break your heart. I’m joking, obviously, but it’s kind of true, right? This then made me wonder if wines were “on the market,” so to speak, which would be comparable to a first love, summer…
