“Whoever enjoys wine knows how to enjoy life, because culture and values are the true riches of wine.” ~ Giovanni Gaja (Angelo’s father) #GajaWine #wine #quote #QOTD #sotrue #winelover #wineenthusiast
To each his own; but there are people out there that frown upon sweeter wines—you know them. They’ll wash down hot wings, Thai cuisine, or Sriracha whatever; with fruit punch or soda pop, over a “well balanced” wine that contains some level of residual sugar. In fairness, they may have an aversion to alcohol. At any rate, this pleasing selection from @AmoritasVines, or any off-dry Riesling with screaming acidity, would easily do the trick—and such a wonderful pairing to boot. I’m saving the rest of this wine for some (spicy) shrimp fried pineapple rice. Cheers! #MIRiesling #MIWine #MIWineCollab #MichiganWine #wine #Riesling #winelover #myvinespot
The good folks at @MIWineCollab are hosting a ‘Michigan Riesling Roundtable’ chat tonight (6/24) at 8PM EST. Pour yourself a glass of #wine and learn all about the connection between the noble riesling grape and The Great Lakes State. Use Twitter hashtag #MIWine to follow the convo. Cheers!
Locations NZ7 Sauvignon Blanc (SRP $19): Sourced from sub-regions (Wairau, Awatere and Waihopai valleys) throughout Marlborough, aromas of citrus fruit—notably lime and grapefruit, merge with flavors of fresh melon and lemon grass. The wine’s crisp and refreshing character made for a great garden companion the other day. These label stand out on a crowded shelf; just look for the abbreviation of the respective place (state or country) where the grapes were grown and buy with confidence. Locations’ offers good bang for the buck. Cheers! #nzwine #wine #winelover #SauvignonBlanc #wineenthusiast #myvinespot
Flower spike of a butterfly bush shrub—they  just love the plant’s sweet nectar, and I enjoy watching them (…get their sip on). 🦋 #butterflybush #flowers #garden #MotherNature #beautiful
I have two unruly squirrels that keep things lively out back—too lively if you ask me. I call them Butch and Sundance. Long gone are the days of robbing trains; they rob birdfeeders nowadays. I may have to rent a fox. 🦊 😂 #LOL #furball # #squirrels
1) Stop and smell the flowers (in other words, we need to take time out of our busy lives to enjoy the small pleasures—like this delicious méthode champenoise sparkling #Rosé of Pinot Noir from @NalleWinery . 2) Don’t swirl sparkling wines—you’ll only disturb the bubbles, and these beads are fine & persistent. 3) Have a grape weekend! #HappyFriday #FriYay #PinkSociety #Sonoma #DryCreekValley #sparklingwine #rosé #wine #winelover #wineenthusiast
Chilling (literally)—and look fwd to tweeting & tasting w/ #rosé lovers from all around the #wine world. Tonight’s special guest is @NalleWinery—a 4th gen family #winery who has grown grapes in Sonoma’s #DryCreekValley since the 1920s. Join the convo at 9PM EST w/ Twitter hashtag #PinkSociety :)
Rocking Aghora’s self-titled debut. It’s been in my regular rotation since it came out (released in 2000). It’s an album that grows on you. Excellent musicianship, led by guitar virtuoso Santiago Dobles, Cynic’s rhythm section: Sean Malone (bass) and Sean Reinert (drums), and other talented musicians, including Santiago’s sister on vocals. #Aghora #progressivemetal #metalfusion #metalband #music #album‬‬ #gem #nowplaying
It’s been a fun few weeks chatting with Old Westminster on #winestudio (the final chat is 6/25 at 9PM EST—tune in by using Twitter hashtag #winestudio). Their 2018 Heirloom is a Maryland-grown, estate-blend consisting of 77% #Chardonnay, 12% Albariño and 11% Muscat. Bright & tasty, this wine leads with vibrant strokes of lemon zest, rose petal and spice, followed by a touch of citrus peel, with a refreshingly tangy finish. Native yeast fermented; unfined/unfiltered. Check them out at oldwestminster.com. #winestudio #mdwine #Heirloom #WineWednesday
The beautiful orchid gracing the label of @AlmaDeCattleya wines represents the Cattleya Trinae—this flower is the national symbol of winemaker Bibiana Gonzales Rave native country, Columbia. To quote the winemaker: “Pair. Share. Enjoy.” I wholeheartedly agree. And by the way, this wine is delicious! #LucyRose #AdCwines #wine #quote #art #winelover #QOTD
Austin Eastciders Watermelon… This is a good cider to wash down some BBQ. I have fruit on my plate too. Myron Mixon serves up a Peach BBQ Baked Beans (made w/ peach pie filling)—different but tasty. Cheers! #cider #hardcider #craftcider #BBQ #MyronMixon #restaurant
