IMG_1023

In the previous article on the wines of Spain (which you can read here), we looked at two reds from Rioja produced by Viña Equía. Viña Equía makes their wines in the town of Elciego, in Rioja Alavesa. Since 2010 they have been part of the group of vineyards and wineries owned by Bodegas Muriel,

Let’s continue our look at Spanish wines with another winery in the Rioja region. We introduced Rioja in our last blog, which you can read here. This, at least to me, is the traditional heart of Spanish wine. It is one of only two regions to be awarded the highest wine quality designation in the

Yet every wine drinker should know the wines from Spain, and we introduced the topic in our previous blog (which you can read

View-From-Terrace-lo

Silverado Vineyards is a venerable, well known name when it comes to Napa wineries. It’s story began in 1976 when Diane Disney and Ron Miller purchased their Stag’s Leap District vineyards.

While on our way out of the Newport Mansions Wine & Food Festival last year, we walked by a table with wines from Israel. At that point we had exactly zero experience with Israeli wines, and we weren’t really expecting much. Still, the Wine Spectator had just done a big spread on the wine industry

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.

The Wines from The Calling

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. Such is the story with
