Costco’s Kirkland Offers Up Two Affordable and Delicious French Wines

Two of Costco’s Kirkland wines getting high ratings? Wine Spectator gave two of its French wines scores of 89 and 91, respectively. This was something we had to investigate seeing that we’re always on the look out for good, affordable wines. So today we went to Costco to return an item and decided to go […]

Cadre Pinot Noir “The Architects” 2008

From the bottle of Cadre Pinot Noir: CA DRE – [kah-drey] – noun: a small group that has banded together to further the cause of a larger movement. Cadre Vineyards pays tribute to the vision of the “The Architects” who helped pioneer the south Central Coast region with the planting of four remarkable Pinot Noir […]

NoCo North Coast Chardonnay 2010

It’s hot again in LA! After a bike ride in the oppressive summer heat, it was time for a cool break and some Chardonnay from the Northern Coast of California. The grapes are from Napa, Sonoma, Mendocino, Lake, Marin and Solano Counties. They were hand harvested from sustainable vineyards. Fermentation took place in 100% stainless […]

The Rare 100% Graciano Ijalba from Rioja 2009

We recently had an awesome family reunion in Zion in Utah. Our lives were put at risk left and right by the great outdoors and we loved every minute. And every evening, we would pull a new wine from the case we brought from California or the case Jane’s sister and husband brought from Washington. […]

Georges Duboeuf Beaujolais, Moulin-A-Vent, Domaine des Rosiers 2009

So its summer, and man is it hot outside. Since it’s tough to drink a big Syrah or Cabernet in the midst of a hot summer day, I decided to try a new bottle of  Beaujolais – the 2009 Georges Duboeuf Beaujolais, Moulin-A-Vent, Domaine des Rosiers to be exact. Since it’s made from the light-bodied Gamay […]

Onda Ristorante, The Mirage Casino, Las Vegas

On the way back from our trip to Zion, we stopped in Las Vegas again. This time, we decided to look for another wine bar in one of the casinos we hadn’t already visited the week before. At that time, we had only found La Cave at Wynn. By the time we tried La Cave, […]

Le Cirque, Bellagio Casino, Las Vegas, NV

On a recent trip outside Los Angeles, we overnighted in Las Vegas and of course had to seek out great wine. After an uninspiring glass of Chardonnay at a convenient but unnamed casino, we had to find something more satisfying. Suprisingly, it’s not easy to find a good wine bar in Vegas casinos. We did […]

2010 Baileyana, Firepeak Vineyards, Pinot Noir

So…while we were in San Luis Obispo attending a screening of our film Take Me Home, we decided to do some wine tasting (surprise, surprise!). And we came upon Baileyana. They have a nice tasting room with lots of fun wine accessories available. We were so sucked in to the wine and the accessories that […]

Cork Bar, Downtown LA, CA

Sunday afternoon is always a great time to relax and think about taking a field trip. So we decided to travel outside the Valley for an afternoon and went to downtown LA to try Cork Bar. We noticed that there was lots of street parking, which is always a bonus. Heading inside we noticed that […]

2008 Aglianico, Kenneth Volk Vineyards, Pomar Junction Vineyard, Paso Robles, CA

Gotta love a vineyard with two tastings rooms in two different cities! Our first introduction to Kenneth Volk Vineyards was at a tasting room shared with Lone Madrone in Paso Robles, CA.We then stumbled upon its cousin in Santa Maria, CA. When we saw the Santa Maria tasting room, we thought we were seeing double […]
