Something for everyone in Paso Robles

Seeking out new wines always requires an open mind. We too are humans and carry a suitcase full of preconceived ideas and opinions about quality and style. At the start of our venture to Paso Robles, California, we met vast, sprawling land scattered with easy-going towns and locals that triggered memories of my formative years […]

Barolo & Barbaresco rule Langhe, Italy

Piemonte is a dizzying gastronomic haven, rich in everything of a gourmand’s dream- truffles, mushrooms, hazelnuts (RE: Nutella), ambrosic red wine, historical whites and sweet, sparkling Moscato that even the most pretentious vinophile can’t deny when served with a slice of Pannetone or a hot afternoon.

Both regions are included in the Aconcagua zone in Chile, although the climate is widely different than the hot, arid desert of the Aconcagua Valley. Founded in 1980 as […]

Wine, science, hospitality, and curiousity.

Jennifer looking the sea

From Jennifer… My wine journey began with a glass of Chassagne-Montrachet in Tucson Arizona. I unenthusiastically moved to Tucson from my hometown Pittsburgh, PA when I was 20 because my parents transferred jobs. Both of my parents have PhDs and my father is also a Neurologist. I moved to Arizona planning to follow parental expectations; […]
