I am a wine lover….plain and simple. I love a buttery chardonnay, crisp rose, chilled sauvignon blanc, good red blend or zinfandel, but I’m happy to try any varietal and am always up for 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 and I always share it with friends!
Five years ago I started writing Wine Wednesday reviews for my good friend, Tracy Pendergast at Hey Tracy. 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. I created food pairings and incorporated their wines into recipes I created, along with tablescapes for dinner parties. This was 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.
Since that fateful wine tasting, I have joined on with ONEHOPE Wine and host wine tastings and fundraisers. ONEHOPE is an amazing company which donates a portion of all profits to non-profits and an additional 10% of your sales to non-profits of your choice. Whether it’s the wine club, a bottle, a half or full case or a corporate gift, I’m more than happy to help you out and find the perfect wine for you.
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!
