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 […]

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 […]

The Mercantile Wine Bar, Hollywood, CA

It’s Sunday and Steve and I are ready to relax in the 90 degree LA weather. We looked around and decided to try The Mercantile Wine Bar in Hollywood, CA. And boy were we glad we did. First they have a huge, free parking lot in the heart of Hollywood. That’s nearly impossible to find. […]

Lompoc Wine Ghetto in Lompoc, CA

Some friends told us about the wine ghetto in Lompoc, CA so we decided to stop by on our way to an overnight in Santa Maria, CA wine country. It’s unusual in that it’s not your traditional winery, with rolling hills and beautiful rows of grape vines. Instead it’s a row of low slung warehouses […]

2010 Proprietary Red, KitFox Vineyards

We received this red wine as a gift. It’s another daily bottle blend that we feel is tasty and enjoyable. We wouldn’t pull it out on a special occasion but for every day it’s lovely. There is interesting history to the vineyard’s name. The vineyard shares a home with the endangered Kit Fox hence the […]

2008 Zaca Mesa Syrah – Santa Ynez Valley

It’s a beautiful Spring evening and we’ve decided to open a Syrah from Zaca Mesa, which is located in the Santa Ynez Valley in California. This valley holds a lot of great memories for us. This valley was our first introduction to wine country. It’s only an hour and a half from Los Angeles so […]

2010 Tablas Creek Patelin de Tablas

Tablas Creek is one of our favorite Paso Robles wineries. There is a West and East side of Paso Robles. Tablas Creek is on the West side with its winding roads that are perfect for long bike rides. The East side is nice but much flatter and less wooded. Steve found a more economical bottle […]

2007 Silverado Zinfandel & Ombra Ristorante in Studio City, CA

Steve and I visited Silverado Vineyards during our trip to Napa when our film Take Me Home was in the festival. The tasting room had amazing views of the Valley and the server was very nice and accommodating. When we got home, we realized we had visited Silverado on our first trip to Napa with […]

2008 Surfrider Cabernet Sauvignon from Rosenthal in Malibu, CA

After a hike in Malibu, Steve and I stumbled upon the Rosenthal tasting room and being the winos that we are, we decided to stop in post-hike. Looking around at the casual tasting room, we didn’t think they’d mind as they seemed super cool and welcoming. Wine after a hike is always welcome (shhh! don’t […]

2006 Elu from St. Supery Vineyards and Winery & Chablis Food + Wine

We went to dinner on Friday night and decided to bring a bottle of wine to review. Since it was Christmas weekend, we decided to try a generous gift from one of Steve’s coworkers. She gave us the 2006 Elu from St. Supery Vineyards and Winery in Napa Valley. She knows we love wine and […]
