I love it when I’m approached in regards to the possibility of sharing an article from another site that relates to one of my favorite subjects – wine. It’s something I don’t often do, however, this article from FIX.com was too good to pass up. It’s packed full of great information about Sangria and all...

Touring and Tasting with Matchbook Wine Company

As a wine writer, I get invited to some of the most interesting events. This time, it was a media/blogger tour and taste at Matchbook Wine Company in Dunnigan Hills. I was already a major fan of the Matchbook Wine label because of its quality vs. price ratio, so I was delighted to accept...

Matchbook Winery Tempranillo: #Wine

My husband and I were off to attend an event at a winery we had not been to before. It was not in an area we thought would have a winery. It was a beautiful drive on winding country roads; then we saw it. We had arrived at Matchbook Winery. Seemingly out of nowhere, emerged...

Peirano Estate Vineyards Merlot: #Wine

This Peirano Estate Vineyards Six Clones Merlot just seemed to jump off the shelf into my wine basket. Primarily because of a conversation I had with my friend and wine buyer at CostPlus. The fact that it’s just a few miles south of where I live, helped with that too. I pass it all...
