Wine Wednesday: Vinotype

Wine Wednesday: Vinotype

What’s your Vinotype?   According to this survey I’m “hypersensitive.”   That means… my wine preferences run toward more delicate, dry wines with lower alcohol levels and reds have to be especially rich and smooth for my highly sensitive sensory perception. I’m towards the top end of the scale in terms of my sensory sensitivity....

Valentine’s Day Our Way

Andy and I decided to stay in and cook for each other instead of battling the landmine of multi-course (no substitution) wheat, sugar and dairy heavy pre-fixe menus arranged by local restaurants. And deciding to avoid the crowd and the high cost of dining out...
