Chianti

I’d forgotten how good a bottle of Chianti is. Excuse me while I wipe the drool from my chin.  My dinner tonight was a smorgasbord of “homemade” Red Lobster biscuits from a box, and shredded smoked chicken on a bed of spinach with ranch dressing. And this bottle of Chianti was delicious with it.  I’m…

Wine Review Tuesday: Casillero del Diablo. 

I finally found it. My absolute favorite bottle of wine for years now. Casillero del Diablo.  Ok, ok, ok. The merlot is my favorite, but this cab takes a close second. Can I tell you I almost peed my pants with excitement when I found this bottle at Walmart! I need to remind y’all I…

Wine Review Tuesday: Les Rocs de Plaisance Bordeaux

Bordeaux wine is produced in the Bordeaux region of France, at least according to Wikipedia (ya, not the most credible source I know).

Wine Review Tuesday: San Pietro

My brother in law was in town and cooked all kinds of fancy meals for us while he was here. He prepared us a steak one night with a sous vide… A very interesting little cooking device that I recommend you all Google. My steak was delicious. We paired it with a Chianti wine because…

Wine Review Tuesday: Stella Rosa Stella Rosso

While trolling the wine aisle at Winco the other night, this pretty bottle stood out to my husband for some reason.  We took this pretty bottle home, and I poured us a glass while he grilled is some dinner. We truly had no idea what to expect as we didn’t see an actual type of…

Wine Review Tuesday: Omero Pinot Noir 

If motherhood has taught me anything in the last 2 months, it’s don’t waste your time on overly cheap wine. Ok, ok motherhood has taught me lots of things, but this is a wine blog so let’s talk wine! I am still a bargain shopper when it comes to wine. I have my bottles of…

Can I make a huge confession… I am so happy to be able to drink wine again! Pregnancy was tough, and now that my baby girl is here, a glass of wine is so refreshing after a long day of changing diaper blow outs, cleaning spit up out of my hair, and comforting a baby…

Wine Review: Freemark Abbey

My husband ran to the grocery store by himself tonight. He was supposed to pick up 3 items; eggs, milk, and our standard box of Vella wine (we’re classy I know). His first words to me when he wialked in the door were  “I shouldn’t go to the store alone”.  He then pulls out a…
