Top Five White Wines from the 2014 Mohegan Sun Winefest

CIMG2360

Right up front we’ll say that at any wine event we’ll taste probably two to three reds for every white we try. It’s just the way we’re wired and it’s the title of the blog, but whites are very much a part of our wine view and actually are growing to be more so as

Top Ten Red Wines from the 2014 Mohegan Sun Winefest

A beautiful Chenin Blanc / Viognier from Pine Ridge

Here’s our Top Ten list for red wine from the recent 2014 Mohegan Sun Winefest. I’ll be honest up front and say I wimped out, couldn’t make the hard decision and left in a tie for tenth, so it is really a top eleven. These were evaluated on overall quality, price (and therefore value) and

Summary of the 2014 Mohegan Sun Winefest

We just wrapped up the 2014 Mohegan Sun Winefest, which is the 11th year for this event, and we have to admit we were pleasantly surprised. We started at the Elite Cru on Saturday afternoon, and then came back for the Grand Tasting on Sunday. There were ups and downs, but way more ups. The

Two Older Wines, One Burgundy and a Bordeaux

CIMG2350

We love to pull older wines out of the cellar. Generally we’ve been rarely disappointed or unpleasantly surprised when opening a ten year old bottle of quality wine. There have been one or two, and then it becomes an academic exercise of noting the flavors and aromas and what time has done to ravage

Reminder – Mohegan Sun Winefest this Weekend!

The Mohegan Sun Winefest is this weekend, and we’ll be covering part of it (you just can’t do everything!). The Saturday Grand Tasting is sold out, but there are still tickets for Sunday. We’ll report back on the wines and food from the weekend. It sounds like a good time. When we get a moment

Visit to Westport Rivers Winery, January 2014

Max's potrait

It’s unusual to find a New England Winery that produces all estate wines. There are good reasons for that, as grapes are difficult to grow here, especially red varieties, and there are certainly sources for quality grapes grown elsewhere. Still, it’s nice to find a local winery that has made that commitment to estate grown

Wine, Labels, France, and Personal Responsibility

Wine has been an integral, firmly entwined part of civilization for almost as long as there has been civilization. It has been used to make water potable, to drink when potable water was not an option, to help digestion, to celebrate life and to, yes, provide a level of intoxication in some individuals at some

A Good Value Ten Year Tawny and a Little About Port Wine

CIMG2351

We love port wine, or at least I do. My son has gained an affinity for tawny, while I tend to favor vintage port but still love a good tawny as well. In general I consider port to be one of the great values available in the wine world, considering you can buy a 30

A red wine flight

It was Christmas Day, the parks were really crowded and we felt the need for a little refreshment and relaxation. Lunch at the Coral Reef had been good, but after three hours of crowds we felt the need to sit. On a whim we strolled back to the Italy Pavillion and poked our heads into

Dining Review of the Coral Reef in EPCOT Center

The Blue Glowtini

Here’s another restaurant review from our recent family trip to Central Florida, this time the Coral Reef located at Walt Disney World’s EPCOT Center. While not directly connected, the restaurant is in the same building as the Living Seas exhibit, and you need to walk around the right side of the building as you approach
