Classic Motor Museum of St. Michaels… on the small side, but a great antique automobile collection on hand. A must visit for all vintage car enthusiasts. Cheers! #classiccars #museum #automuseum #vintage #vintagecars #StMichaelsMD #Maryland
Don’t spend too much time overthinking #Thanksgiving wines. Although, here’s a bottle (2016 Domaine de Reuilly | $20) that belongs on your table. Take this pic to your local #wine shop and see if they have this #PinotNoir from #Reuilly (reuh-YEE)—a village in France’s #LoireValley. Whether you find this particular wine or not, just know that #LoireValley Pinot has a built-in delicacy and brightness designed to complement its counterpart, rather than overwhelm. Cheers! #LoireLovers #winelover #wineblogger #myvinespot #HappyFriday #thewinefans
Yes, it's true; I'm a sucker for a good wedge salad. This classic salad pairs surprisingly well with wines such as off-dry #Vouvray or #Riesling (… the blue cheese crumbles beg for these type of wines). Cheers! #Yum #wine #wedgesalad #salad #delicious #foodlover #winelover
A classic contrasting pairing in sweetness up against salty flavors is a splash of Sauternes and Roquefort. This pairing is a match made in heaven. Give it a try. Cheers!  #Sauternes #Graves #Bordeaux #dessert #wine #cheese #sweet #salty #GoGoldenBordeaux
This gem is from one of Champagne's oldest houses, founded in 1729 by Nicholas Ruinart. It’s mature and elegant in character, with notes of orchard fruit, brioche, roasted almonds, peach skin, and low-key mineral tones. The mouthfeel is delicate yet creamy, with mouthwatering acidity carrying through the textured finish. This champagne comes in half-bottles (375ml), which is a great size for weeknight sipping. You can find this wine and more at ackerwines.com. Cheers! #winestudio #wine #wineblogger @CarnetsRuinart #Ruinart #Champagne #sparklingwine #Chardonnay #WineWednesday
Just my two corks: bacon does make everything better. But so does Champagne; and with less fat. 
Any recommendations, @AckerMerrall? (their response: What about Rose Champagne? Ruinart does make a rose and it’s fantastic with bacon or chocolate! $76.99 a bottle...) #lol #justsayin #bacon #Champagne #wine #winelover #winestudio #ackerwines #thewinefans
I had a fantastic time earlier today participating in #LoireLovers chat. The region’s wines are some of my favorites for sipping and pairing with food. Generally speaking, the wines of the Loire Valley have an inherent brightness and approachability. The region is so diverse—offering something for just about every palate preference. Those who explore the wines of the Loire, and familiarize themselves with the different appellations, tend to ‘Fall in Loire’—more times than not. The bottles pictured here are from appellations: Crémant-de-Loire (SP Chenin Blanc), Saumur (Cabernet Franc), Sancerre (Pinot Noir), Anjou (Cabernet Franc), and Reuilly (Pinot Noir). All of these wines are affordable (nothing over $25 pictured), and all will work great on your #Thanksgiving table.

I enjoyed a number of starters at Our Harvest, including this delicious mushroom flatbread. Will bring my appetite back next time, so I can try a few items on the ‘Feasts’ menu. A scrumptious apple galette to cap off the evening!  @OurHarvestDE is one of many good reasons to visit #FenwickIsland.
