Over the last few years we have tried many outstanding wines from Chile, and our appreciation the country’s vineyards and winemakers continues to grow. They certainly make wonderful value wines, and have for decades. What many might not realize, however, is that they also make incredibly high quality wines across the price spectrum. Our #3

Over the Christmas holiday we found ourselves in Morrisville, NC, visiting family. One of our forays out for food brought us to Saffron, in a strip mall near a Harris Teeter supermarket. The setting screamed strip mall food, and the inside really didn’t scream anything differently, but the proof is what’s on the plate. The

It’s no secret that I would, if I could pick anything for a profession, own a winery. While it is probably not in my future, it is always interesting to learn about people who do make that dream come true, frequently arriving at winemaking from completely different professions and careers.
