Bubbles to Beat the Brunch Backlash
I casually peruse food articles, as you might guess. One
emerging set of hot takes seems to revolve around brunch. Specifically, that
brunch sucks. It’s all the same – just dressed up eggs and bacon, they
say. Starchy home fries lead to long afternoon naps,...

Naked Vine Double Barrel – Veneto cool for Summer’s heat
Ah, Venice. Starting spot for the first European trip the
Sweet Partner in Crime and I took together a decade ago. We have many lovely
memories of Venice itself, but we didn’t get a chance, that time, to leave the

touchstone for wine was a 2004 indie-film-that-blew-up called Sideways . The events of the film
surround a wine tasting bachelor trip through Santa Barbara County’s Pinot Noir
country. Sideways hasn...

Levels and Levels – Chianti Three Ways
Ah, Chianti. Lovely Sangiovese-based blend from Tuscany, how do I love
thee? As you all know, here around Vine HQ, we love our food, and there are few
better food wines anywhere than those that come out of the Chianti region. Now, as you might have guessed ...

The Wine Headache Hazard
No one can work with wine without tipping back too much from
time to time. The morning after. The headache, the nausea, and the sun, as

but yourself. But what if the pain isn't your fault...
