Local Wine Shops

The San Francisco Chronicle again talks about the importance of local wine shops. Best quotes of the article? "I'd argue we're again entering a golden age of wine shops." and "I often insist the best way to learn about wine is to get guidance from your local wine merchants. So next time you feel like a $20 adventure, just ask them what they'd love to drink."

Food and Wine Pairing Adventures

The San Francisco Chronicle touches on adventuresome wine pairings - ramen noodles with whites? Or Sherry? Meyer lemons with  Puligny-Montrachet. Great read, go check it out and tell us what you find that's unusual, adventurous and delicious!

More Super Bowl Wine

The Wall Street Journal has long had a great wine column. They tackle Super Bowl wines in their Saturday edition. Bottom line? "The fried, cheesy and greasy aspects of Super Bowl snacks (the very reasons we love them so much) call for wines with sufficient acidity to cut the fat." Surprise finding? Pigs in a blanket can be complemented by wine. Pinot Gris or Pinot Noir or Riesling to be specific. Go read their other recommendations!
