No I Won’t Be Your Friend

Dear business owner, I don’t want to be your friend. I don’t want my personal information being in your feed. I’m sure you don’t need to know about my friend drama or how high my bedazzled score is.

Please, shut down the friend page for your business and open a Facebook business page. I’ll like you, I promise. Now, I don’t mean to be harsh. Many businesses started Facebook “friend” […]

As I often teach, the blog posts that come out of the tasting will jump to the top […]

Chardonnay Day with Spokane Washington Wine

Chardonnay is one of the world’s most planted wine grapes (second to Spanish grape Airen). A major component in Champagne (and other sparkling wine), Chardonnay is known as a winemakers grape because of the ability for the winemaker to impart their stamp on the overall outcome. Chardonnay is crisp and clean in Chablis and has a reputation for being thick and buttery in California, although many wineries are moving away from this trend.
