I am a wine lover….plain and simple. I love a good chardonnay or pinot noir but I’m happy to try any variety and am always up for a good wine tasting. I don’t cleanse my palate or use fancy words to describe a wine I like. I taste it and if I like it, then I’ll make sure to remember it for future reference.
Last year I started writing Wine Wednesday reviews for my good friend, Tracy Pendergast at TeeWii. We are both big wine lovers and since I was drinking it, I figured, why not write about it?! We ended up collaborating with La Crema and creating a series of blog posts for their website. My focus has been on food pairings and using their wines in recipes I create, along with tablescapes for dinner parties. This has been one of the most fun projects I’ve worked on and it all started because of a review I did on La Crema after visiting their tasting room in Healdsburg, CA for my sister-in-law’s bachelorette weekend.
For this site, I’ll continue writing wine reviews and letting you know what I’m enjoying, where you can find it and how much it is. I will splurge on an expensive bottle every now and then but affordability is definitely an important aspect of what I look for.
Food and wine are two of my great loves and I’m excited to share them both with you!
