Sparkling wine is becoming an everyday wine

Sparkling wine is becoming an everyday wine

LIKE MANY OF YOU, OUR PARENTS USED to reserve sparkling wine and champagne for special occasions—Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Year’s Eve and big events. But younger people are embracing sparklers as more of an everyday wine and drinking it year-round. On a trip to Italy this summer, we noticed scores of younger people drinking Prosecco, Italy’s...

Vintners predict quality wines from grape harvest

National Pizza Month: ZPizza’s Gluten Free Takeout–Hasty and Tasty!

So picture this: I work in Roseville (as a graphic designer/life saver) from 8:30am-5pm, and last Wednesday Andy and I have to be at a Kings Pre-season game by 7:00pm. Factor in a 30 minute commute time, and 10-15 minutes to get to the game from my house, and there’s pretty much NO TIME...

Joel Gott California Sauvignon Blanc: #Wine

This delightful Joel Gott California Sauvignon Blanc was the perfect choice for the making of my white wine lemon sangria. It was also a great wine to enjoy while making it as well. Joel Gott, of Joel Gott Wines, was established in 1996. Joel’s interest in wine has very deep roots.
