Red, White and Brew Coming March 14th – Support Trinity Rep!

red white small

March 14th, at the Pell Chafee Performance Center in Providence, Trinity Rep holds a fundraiser. We support Trinity, and have been season ticket holders for many years. For us it’s simply a great value in entertainment. What makes this fundraiser special is that it’s a food and wine event, with a special bourbon tasting……and a

Stag’s Leap Wine Tasting at Gasbarro’s on Federal Hill

This winter has been brutal, with unending cold, snow and ice. Sometimes it’s hard to believe spring will ever get here, but it will. One sign is that Mark Gasbarro is starting his wine tasting series again, and that is a good thing. The next one is Wednesday, March 4th, between 6 and 8 PM,

Our Snowbound Inn

We wanted to go to the Boston Wine Expo this year, but it always seems something is working against us. Last year it was a bout with the flu, this year a forecast for yet another Northeast blizzard. What to do? With reservations in place to be in Chatham on Cape

Two Big Red Wines from the Blizzard Trip of Feb 14, 2015

We were planning on going to Boston for the Wine Expo this past weekend. Mother nature intervened, covered Boston with another foot or so of snow and re-routed us to Cape Cod a day early for a slightly extended R&R vacation. Of course we brought some wine to help pass the time. Three bottles emerged

A Look at the Wine of Stellenbosch, South Africa: Part 4 – Raats Family Wines

For our fourth Stellenbosch, South Africa review we’ll move somewhat west to Raats Family Wines, where Bruwer Raats presides over an apparently fanatical approach to making the absolutely best Chenin Blanc and Cabernet Franc that South Africa, or the world for that matter, can produce. They specialize in those two grapes, although they do make

A lively crowd

With the Boston Wine Expo coming up this weekend, Cheri and I were talking about how to attack our one day at the event, and she reminded me of how many of the best moments, and wines, were the ones we stumbled on at the last minute, or on our way

A Low Priced and Easy Drinking Riesling from Avia

Here we’ll take a step back from a lot of the more expensive bottles we’ve been reviewing lately (more expensive to us that is, still pretty reasonable in the grand scheme of things). Let’s talk about something truly inexpensive, that checks in for around $5 – $6. It’s quite good, very drinkable and will work
