wine Wednesday: my life as a wine consultant

happy Wine Wednesday! hope you’re swirling and sipping something delicious this evening! filed under things i’ve been doing instead of writing, is a little story i’m finally ready to share here about me coming out of my comfort zone and trying something totally new . . . and what i’ve learned. pop open a bottle and indulge…

wine Wednesday: beef bourguignon

as usual, i did this all totally wrong. or, i mean, as wrong as you can go with a delicious California red. a tinge of fall weather seemed to beg for something hearty to put in our bellies. i had some beef tips of some nature in the fridge. i had a bottle of red…

wine Wednesday: Good Morning Sunshine!

it’s been a while. i have been dealing with a lot of uncertainty, uncomfortable-in-my-own-skin-ness and overscheduling on both the work and home fronts, seemingly all summer. i’m holding a post on all that until it is perfect, you know because i have time for perfection (gaaahhh), so stay tuned and sorry for the blackout. the good…

wine Wednesday: Southern Slush

so, this is vacation drinking, y’all. Spy took the kids down to a cute little craft market at Tybee Lighthouse the other day and brought me back this: Southern Slush from Savannah Signature Sweets. yep. it’s exactly what it sounds like. a frozen wine cocktail. no shame. last year’s random, fruity indulge was old-school berry-flavored…

Route des Vins: wine Wednesday special edition!

i mean, as if gas station champagne weren’t enough. (please pause while i laugh my ass off.) the true story about our drive from Strasbourg to Colmar is that there wasn’t actually that much wine involved. we had Miss Girl with us of course, so stopping off at every (or any) degustation wasn’t really in…

wine Wednesday: patio weather!

not tryin’ to brag, y’all. but . . . according to one source i just saw, Atlanta hit 77° today. yep. that’s right. this time last week, we were tracking school closings and bracing for another snowpocalypse. welcome to winter weather in the South. i even decided i could pull out white jeans today —…

wine Wednesday: we all scream for wine ice cream!

just wow. anybody who’s ever had a gruesome, wallow-inducing break-up, something rooftop-shoutingly phenomenal to celebrate or just an everyday case of feeling utterly decadent will totally be able to relate to the sheer awesomeness of this find: Mercer’s Wine Ice Cream. in the ultimate 2-great-tastes-that-taste-great-together combo, the most clichéd and delicious heartbreak/celebration/indulgence go-to foods confirm what i’ve always known:…

NaBloPoMo day 19: wine Wednesday — back to the box (again)!

super quick check in here, y’all. i have a big launch party tonight for a project i’ve been working on most of the year. i can’t really talk about it yet, but suffice to say a lot of hard work went into it and it’s amazing to see the combination of videos and apps coming together on…

NaBloPoMo catch-up: wine Wednesday + the joys of writing long

getting caught up on missing posts  (only behind by 1 so far) and feeling good! i wanted to do a quick nod to what i think is my last bottle from the last Naked Wines order. there are several kinds in the wine rack right now, but most are European, so i think they came from elsewhere. i…

NaBloPoMo days 5 & 6: wine Wednesday & am i a pro?

well, duh. it was completely foolish to think i’d actually write my post last night after a wine Wednesday out with the girls. creatures of habit that we are, this episode of writers wining once again took place at Baronda, where we were lucky enough to snag our favorite spot at the corner of the bar. the…

wine Wednesday: reds blues

it’s been a while since i’ve done one of these. with all this writing, i definitely need a glass of wine, thought! i was hoping to have some good news to report out of the last Naked Wines box, but alas, i got down to the reds and they’ve been kind of disappointing. that’s Southern…

wine Wednesday: lesson in Bordeaux

it has been a long week since last Wednesday. i’m decidely in some kind of prolonged funk that was totally unfazed by our weekend catch-up with old friends and family in Richmond. i’ve been so funked i couldn’t even write about the weekend, which i’d sincerely planned on doing. my brain just literally locked up…
