    The HoseMaster's Guide to Drinking Wine at Home

    An authentic wine lover drinks at home. A lot. Alone, or otherwise. He doesn’t just drink wine socially, or with a meal. He drinks all the time, and not from fancy glassware.

My note on the Taylor wine is at the bottom.

And I’ve most of a lifetime spent in studying Whiskeys, Vodka, Gin, Rum…but not Tequila. Personal tastes absolutely DO enter in when we’re talking about dedication to a subject and, although I do love Tequila, it is solidly #5 on ...

September. November. October doesn’t rhyme. Here in sunny SoCal days cool off with daily highs in the 80s. You have to take a jacket if dining in Culver City, the cultural capitol of West LA.
