    • Peace, Love & Pizza @OGSgtPepperonis #BYO #NebbioloNight

      I am super proud to be part of the hospitality industry. Supplying Italian wine to restaurants and shops has become an amazingly satisfying career for me- I love our community! Recently we started a monthly “Industry Night” in Orange County, California, where we get together to network, to relax, to get to know each other, and to taste wine.

    …, mixologist and general Renaissance-Man-of-Brentwood) proclaimed this wine, “The John Wayne of Brunello”. So. Right. On. Michael Nemcik, enjoying a glass of Marina Cvetic Montepulciano at Castello di Semivicoli in Abruzzo. It’s possible this beautiful Brunello had an even bigger personality than the people who enjoyed it that night. Maybe. PS. Even…

  • I say take no thought of the harvest…

    … … but only of proper sowing. (T.S. Eliot) Ripe Prünent grapes waiting for harvest at Cantina Garrone. These powerful words by T.S. Eliot remind us that in these frantic, labor-intensive days of harvest, and through these sleepless nights and anxious moments waiting for the right weather, the right temperature, the exact moment of ripeness…

  • Kings of the Carso. @winestories

    … Friends of mine are going to the Carso soon. I am ecstatic for them because, even as this is a place I have not yet seen in person, I feel like I know it already. There will be a stiff breeze from the Adriatic and an electric, razor-sharp quality to the sunlight here. There will be lots of wine, cured pork, lovely cheeses. Bright red soil…

  • Holiday Cocktails with Martini’s Rosso Pink Vermouth

    … Nigella Lawson’s popular “Pomegranate Christmas Cocktail” played off one of Rosso’s two dominant fruit flavors, making for a refreshing, low-alcohol cocktail. I made two versions that replaced the ginger ale in Nigella’s drink with inexpensive Cava for a slightly different take. With the holiday season in full swing, I have been thinking of other…

  • A Battle Between Wine and Beer? Not Here…

    … Even though we – the four founders of the Wine Dine With Us blog – met while studying wine at Boston University, we all have an abiding affection for beer. It has never been a case of “either or” but rather a question of which wonderful beverage complements the meal or suits the occasion better. Over the past decade, wine has become…

  • A New Friend

    … Since I left California I have been pining for beers from the Russian River Brewing Company. I have tried quite a few beers from the east coast that I enjoy but none wowed me like Pliny the Elder or the Blind Pig I.P.A. until I tried Peeper Ale from Maine Brewing Company. As with all things good these beers are hard to find and are made…
