It's a #flxwine  podcast.
I went on an extremely memorable trip to experience Finger Lakes wine in New York in October and put together this podcast that I'm tickled to share with you. As a media guest, I got to visit "Harvest House". It was my very cool home base chock-full of fellow wine industry brethren. We split up during the day to visit (and pitch in) at wineries all over the region. Which, in itself, was awesome.But the best part was when, each evening, we all rec...

Hard not to notice this #winelabel. Oh, and your curiosity will be rewarded with deliciousness.
I am not immune to the charms of an attention-getting wine label. And the Coup de Boule is a wine that you are definitely going to pull from the shelf and scrutinize. What is it?La Grange Aux Belles Coup de Boule 2014This is a fizzy rosé from a Loire Valley producer, La Grange Aux Belles. And the text in the #horrorfont ("Coup de Boule") means "headbutt". This aggressive action is ably illustrated on said label.The Coup de Boule is a "natural" wi...

What wine pairs with a blizzard?
I survived my first East Cost blizzard! 25+ inches in a single New York City day. So what did I do on that Saturday, January 23rd? Naturally, I went out to eat. And on a mission to seek out my blizzard wine.It was totally amazing. All traffic was banned from the streets starting at 2:30pm. If you were driving your car after that time, you'd be arrested.I was chilling in a cozy air bnb and saw an Instagram post from Fung Tu in the LES stating they...

Cool #naturalwine to check out.
Part of the pleasure of being in the Center of the Wine Universe (New York City) is getting my hands on so many weird, cool bottles. I'm like an adult in a fermented grape juice store. Case in point: the 2015 Domaine Léonine Amédée.It's (primarily) Syrah from Roussillon. That would be the part of Southern France which cozies up with the Mediterranean Sea as well as the Pyrenees near the Spanish border. It is a "natural" wine (which I covered in a...

This book is like a reference guide to music in New York in the 1970s. Keep a pen and paper handy to jot down notes of musicians, songs, and albums you'll want to find. Or read it on an electronic device. #bookreview   #nyc
