You can view your Twitter analytics here.

    Elena Walch Pinot Grigio

    It's always fun to try wines from new producers, so I was excited to get samples of two Pinot Grigios from Elena Walch, their typical bottling and also a single vineyard offering.

      Drink Local Wine Week: Wollersheim Winery

      50 States of Wine - - 7 readers - It's the national Drink Local Wine Week! Sitting as we are at the junction of three states (Wisconsin, Illinois, Indiana, with Michigan not far), we feel like the local wine scene has quite a bit of variety, though we're not so sure of the quality every time.
