Wine Wednesday: I Can’t Put Down the Bubbly

So now that it's halfway through May, and we finally had to put in our window AC unit (because it's 80 out today, and tomorrow will be the same), I told myself that once it got warm, I'd be going to white/pink wines, instead of the winter reds. I don't know about anyone else, but … Continue reading Wine Wednesday: I Can’t Put Down the Bubbly


Wine Wednesday and Word Vomit

Unfortunately I'm not actually drinking what has been depicted but I do want to try it. I am drinking Sutter Home's Sauvignon Blanc today. As much as it gives me an acid re-flux moment, I do actually like it quite a bit. Now that we're getting into the warmer months (ick), I've been wanting to dive more … Continue reading Wine Wednesday and Word Vomit

Wine Wednesday: Glen Ellen Cabernet Sauvignon and a Contemplation

Described as a juicy berry and black cherry wine, with soft tones of tannins and a smoother finish, which this does live up to the name. It pairs well with a mushroom dish nicely, or a slow-cooked stew, which would be great to add a splash, I'm sure. I've never tried this brand of Cabernet … Continue reading Wine Wednesday: Glen Ellen Cabernet Sauvignon and a Contemplation

Wine Wednesday With a Good Read

So this past week, I've been neglecting writing on here. But I am back, and with a double-topic post, as I've been accomplishing some things, while procrastinating on others. I finished my February book, as it was a simple read, and I have a busy next weekend, and the end of the month has a … Continue reading Wine Wednesday With a Good Read

Wine Wednesdays: Barefoot Champange

via Daily Prompt: Resist When I went into the wine store Monday morning, I couldn't resist trying at least one of the champagnes that were at the end of the aisle when I walked in. There's a handful of flavors that Barefoot has, and I picked up two different ones, one for next week's try. … Continue reading Wine Wednesdays: Barefoot Champange

Personal Thoughts with Wine Wednesdays

As I don't have a wine this week (I kept to the one from last week's review, as that was truly bottom shelf, and I need a week, yanno?!), I'm drinking Barefoot's Sauvignon Blanc (see here for my review). I said yesterday that I wouldn't express my opinion there, but in a future post, that I'd land up doing today. Which in … Continue reading Personal Thoughts with Wine Wednesdays

Wine Wednesday: Pepperwood Grove Pinot Noir

As you can tell, I'm on a Pinot Noir wine kick. So for wine Wednesday this week, I'm reviewing Pepperwood Grove's take on it. Now this was what I call the "baby bottle" of it, the 750 mL bottle. It was $6 when I went to the store yesterday, so I figured, why not? Everything … Continue reading Wine Wednesday: Pepperwood Grove Pinot Noir

Wine it Wednesdays: Barefoot Sauvignon Blanc

I was going to do another wine for Wine Wednesdays, but this one was a must to talk about! Barefoot was one of the staple brands, that most people talked about, for affordable while keeping quality, and it's yet to fall short for me. Today, I tried their Sauvignon Blanc white wine. Noting that this … Continue reading Wine it Wednesdays: Barefoot Sauvignon Blanc

Wine Wednesdays: Barefoot Shiraz

This week will be a little different for Wine Wednesdays. I didn't try this week's wine, I bought it, and a girl friend tried it! I have come to enjoy this brand of wine, so I knew she'd like the quality of the wine, even if she would end up not liking the wine itself. … Continue reading Wine Wednesdays: Barefoot Shiraz
