Teutonic Wine Company 2012 Traubenwerkzeug #WillametteValley #PinotNoir #hellawine #robots #festive #cornucopia

So there is apparently a confession to be made. This bottle was purchased almost purely because SOMEONE loved the label so much that they just couldn’t pass it up. It’s in a weird gewurtztraminer bottle even though it’s a pinot noir, but even I will admit…

Rippey Family Vineyards "The Crossing" Napa Valley Red Wine Blend NV #hellawine #rippeyfamilyvineyards #redblend #nvwine #nonvinted #merlot #pinot

This wine was a find at the Vintage Berkeley end of season sale that I went to last night. The event was a sharp-elbow extravaganza, in which we thirsty flies swarmed around the central tasting table manned by one or two brave employees attempting to pour…

Kunde Vineyards 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon #hellawine #kunde #cabsauv #meaty #laflute #superred

Today, we are “discussing” the wine instead of “doing” it, mostly to appease Clifford’s tender sensibilities, which have apparently been hella tenderized today. We drank this fine fellow with some giant pork chops, red chard sauteed with garlic, and a…

La Flute Wine Opener #hellawine #andmo #laflute #wineopener #fancyfun #challenge #corkscrew #showcase #wood

If there’s one thing that Clifford excels at, it’s winning Instagram contests. Fun fact – this is how he got his first pair of Mighty Melanin Multi Ethnic Shorts ™, by bombarding Instagram with contest entries until the prize was finally his. He is…

Happy New Year! Sorry for the big break in programming; I’ve had a big change at the day job and we traveled a lot during December, but we’ve been holding it down on Instagram – check it out if you don’t already follow us there! @hella_wine We are…

Centorame 2010 Montepulciano d'Abruzzo #hellawine #centorame #montepulcianodabruzzo #italianwine #everyday #winner

And we continue my Italian wine education with a Montepulciano d’Abruzzo (Montepulciano is the varietal, Abruzzo is the region, altogether it’s been a protected name since the 60’s), rescued from the loneliness of the shelf in the European section at…

Il Fauno di Arcanum 2011 Toscana #ilfauno #hellawine #toscana #italianwine #redblend #italianfiesta

For the main course this evening, we have this serious-looking Toscana, an Italian red, also highly recommended at The Wine Mine. I had to look up the naming conventions again (not sure how “conventional” they are when they differ from country to country,…

Vietti 2012 Nebbiolo Perbacco #hellawine #vietti #nebbiolo #italianwine #tacotime

I didn’t know a whole lot about Nebbiolo before drinking this wine, and you could argue that I still don’t, but it has been a hella solid teacher on the beauties of another great Italian varietal. Nebbiolo is a red grape commonly grown in the Barolo…

Tenute San Mauro 2013 Nuragus di Cagliari Italian White Blend #hellawine #italianwine #whitewine #winemine #jurassicpark #drunkvisionary

Ok, the color on this one is definitely a glowing, golden amber, like the shit Jurassic Park grows out of. Just looking at it in the glass, I can hella see an old man with a glob of this stuff on the end of his stick going, “It can be done!” But it’s…
