The ultimate wine and cheese pairing. #Lambrusco  
Wine and cheese, blah blah blah. Ok, not so blah in the flavor department. Truth be told, I don't like the vast majority of wine with cheese, especially red wines. (Sancerre and Crottin de Chavignol goat cheese, however, is my all-time favorite match.) But I recently experienced a game-changer thanks to a Lambrusco pairing that was made amazing by Parmigiano-Reggiano.The Cheese to Stock Up on for a Lambrusco Pairing EpiphanyLambrusco is a red, fi...

How about some #Beaujolais  with your salmon? #gogamaygo  
Living in the Pacific Northwest, pairing salmon with Oregon Pinot Noir is a big thing. And a good thing. (Hi, Martha.) But can you consider, for a moment, an alternative?Red Wine For Salmon? Try BeaujolaisGo Gamay, go! I love you so. The grape that makes the wonderful red wines of Beaujolais is so choice. And speaking of this grape and wine region, I was invited to attend a Beaujolais and salmon dinner for a group of Seattle-area media folks at A...

I love when oak and #Chardonnay  get together. #tinder   #blogpost  
Great Chardonnay offers freshness and just enough richness to make it distinct. Swipe right on the 2013 Jordan Chardonnay.

Some great #pizza  to try next time you're in Portland, OR. #pdxpizza  
Hot damn, look at this beauty from Pizzeria Otto. I was briefly in Portland, Oregon, and wanted to check out this place since it came highly recommended from my pals Mary and Sean. I was overnighting at their house and it's not too far away so perfect, right? (Confidential to Mary and Sean: Left you a sixer in the fridge; thanks for letting me stay!)But what do you drink with this (apple/cranberry) sausage, sage, and caramelized onion pizza with ...

Recorded in a Brooklyn hotel room before dashing off to the +SAVEUR Magazine Blog Awards. It's a summer wine talk (and drink) with Marissa A. Ross.  #podcast  
I did a lot of things while in New York to attend the SAVEUR Blog Awards. But at the top of the cool list was hanging out with fellow nominee, Comedian and Writer Marissa A. Ross. (BTW, get out the broom because she swept the wine category, taking home both the Reader's and Editor's Choice!)If you're not reading her blog, Wine All The Time, you are making me very sad. Please add it to your go-to rotation of all internet things you consume on a re...

My all-time favorite rosé. #Bandol  
Is your rosé watery, bland? You need to step up your pink wine game and get with the 2014 La Bastide Blanche from Bandol. It rules.

I'll be sampling some Washington state wines at the U.S. Open this weekend. Find out what wines I'm looking forward to tasting.

#wawine  
A great opportunity for Washington State Wine, which will be showcased in a hospitality tent for the 2015 U.S. Open at Chambers Bay. And I'll be there.
