Wines to Look For at the Newport Mansions Wine and Food Festival

New Newport Logo

At an event as big as the Newport Mansions Wine and Food Festival you can’t see and try everything in one Grand Tasting afternoon. We’ll be there for both Grand Tastings, get in early for the press and media hour, and we still won’t see it all….and there’s two of us. So what do you

La Jota Vineyard Company – Mountain Wine Making in Napa Valley

La Jota 2011

We’ll continue our look at some smaller producers in Napa and Sonoma with another mountain winery, La Jota Vineyard Company. We previously wrote about Mt. Brave, which you can read about by clicking here, and there are many parallels between the two, including Napa Valley mountain sites and sharing the same vineyard manager and winemaker,

Grgich Hills Wine Tasting – August, 2015

GRGICH Yountville Cab

You’ve probably heard of Grgich Hills Estate. It’s a fairly iconic Napa Valley winery headed by a very iconic winemaker, Miljenko “Mike” Grgich. Mike was born in Croatia and started his enological studies there, but fled the Communist regime and found his way to the U.S. He arrived in 1958 and proceeded to work with

September is fast approaching, and that means wine and food festivals. We’ve been previewing the Newport Mansions event, but let’s not forget about the Greenwich Wine and Food Festival, which happens in Greenwich, CT in late September. This is really more of a food event than a wine one, but there are plenty of wines

Good Value Merlot from Chateau Ste. Michelle

Indian Wells Merlot

Chateau Ste. Michelle is a very dependable producer, and their Indian Wells line offers rich, robust reds (along with a Charonnay) which deliver a lot of body, color and depth. The wines are from warm weather vineyards east of the mountains in Washington. Here is one we recently ordered by the glass at lunch in

Something White, Refreshing and Different – Furmint!

There are so many wines being produced all over the world that you really should branch out and try some of them. Alternatives for your go-to white or red abound. This is potentially one of those alternatives. Traditionally the grape is known as a main component of Tokaji, considered for centuries as a delicious, rare,

UPDATE – JULY 2016

Since the positive review was published below we went back to Brutopia for lunch in June, 2016. This experience could not have been worse. There were not many people there, but the kitchen, for some reason, was horribly backed up. We had a drink at the bar and a couple of
