Porto Kopke Fine Tawny Port

Winter is upon us this week, and that calls for a fireside sipper, something to warm you to the bones after shoveling. My pick is a port, and my port pick is this one: Porto Kopke Fine Tawny Port. Tawny ports are aged longer than Ruby ports, and this one shows it, […]

The Stump Jump

Hey, the holidays happened, and we spent on the big, special bottles of wine for our special occasions. For me they were definitely worth it. But here we are in January, and I’m trying to go with more affordable choices. This is one at the top of my list. It’s an Australian […]

Intercept Wine

It’s the start of regular football season, an exciting time if you’re a fan. For a Wine of the Week to celebrate, I was going to go with, well, BEER. It’s synonymous with weekend football celebrations. Instead I figured there must be football players in the wine business these days, as there are with celebrities […]

It’s Labor Day weekend already. Time to hold on to summer for as long as we can! And here’s a great “can-do” wine – CHAMPE Handcrafted Berkshire Bubbly. It’s a canned sparkling wine peach mimosa cocktail that tastes summery and bubbly and refreshing. It contains zero added sugars, is only 5% ABV, and just 140 […]

Just Peachy

It’s peach season, and I’m happy. I love peaches. I love just about everything peach – pie, cobbler, jam, ice cream, and fresh of course – so I couldn’t resist trying Stella Rosa Peach wine. In addition to tasting like a super-fresh, ripe peach, this wine is light in alcohol (5%!), semi-dry (it’s not too […]

Wine of the Week(end)

If you’re heading to an outdoor event this weekend – and who isn’t? – the perfect take-along wine that pairs well with everything is a Portuguese Vinho Verde. The literal translation is “green wine,” but it’s named after the region in Northern Portugal where the grapes it’s made from are grown. Vinho Verde is renowned […]

It seems there are more New Zealand Sauvignon Blancs on the shelves in wine stores than there are sheep in that country – and that’s saying something!! How to choose from among the burgeoning selection? Here’s one that’s tasty, affordable, and widely available: Matua. I was skeptical about this one when I chose it at […]

Wine of the Week(end)

Summer is upon us and it’s the perfect season for sangria. There are many premade sangrias that can simply be chilled and served over ice. Super easy and convenient. You can then add whatever you want to make it extra fun – fresh fruit, additional fruit juice, a splash of brandy or triple sec, even […]
