A Look at the Wines of Stellenbosch, South Africa : Part 2 – the Wines of Ken Forrester

Ken Forrester Vines

The more we investigate the Stellenbosch region of South Africa, the more amazed we are at the number of wine producers in the valley. We covered some of the basic history of the region and the wines of Simonsig in an earlier article, which you can read here. There is much to discover, and

Dining Review – Hive Restaurant at the Renaissance Westchester Hotel

Recently we found ourselves in White Plains, New York for a few nights. Unfortunately it was for a sad occasion, and during times like these it’s nice to have a place to relax and unwind during the evening.

Two Great Value Port Wines for Christmas Celebrations (or anytime)

Tellus Lagrima Port

A Wine Revelation: I Do Like Touriga Nacional!

UDACA Touriga 2011

I remember someone called Sam I Am from my childhood (courtesy of Dr. Seuss), who repeatedly asked another individual if they liked Green Eggs and Ham.
