Nectar Monthly Honors April

Baseball season has begun. The following is a review of the scouting reports for the best of April. These tweets, posts, wines and bloggers are deserving of the Nectar Monthly Honors for April! April marks my sixth month of wine and social media blogging. The pace continued fast and feverish with 32 posts. With all that writing, I actually only formally reviewed 17 different wines. I promise to do better in May. Some highlights for me in April were starting a consistent writing gig for Gary Vaynerchuk’s Cork’d site. I’ll be posting twice per week through September. I decided to […]

Corkd – Ask a Sommelier

Today’s post is featured on Cork’d. Last week I asked the Twitterers and Facebook “likers” if they had any questions for a Sommelier. The result was 8 questions and a BONUS question that was sure to stump our guest Sommelier, Yashar Shayan. Yashar is on the Sommelier team for Seastar Restaurants in the Seattle area. Seastar won Wine Spectator Magazine “Best of Award of Excellence” wine list in 2009. What question would you ask a Sommelier? Do you have a strange food pairing question?

Thinking Inside the Box Wine

Sometimes you just need a lot of wine. That’s where I see the value of boxed wine. There are plenty of times in life when people will care less that you’re gracing them with a 2007 Russian River Valley Chardonnay or a 2007 Bordeaux or Domaine du Vieux Telegraphe. These are the times when you’re camping, grilling, or entertaining your less discerning friends and the beverage container resembles one of those red plastic cups you used to charge $5 for at college parties. These are the times when folks might be more concerned about the buzz than the nose. Box […]

The Fine Art of the Manhattan

Guest blog post #2 from author Dustin Cann @dustincann I’m a big fan of wine, I really am.  I love the way it can be so complex, yet so simple.  I love the way it smells and the way it can make great food even better.  But when I’m on the road, there’s absolutely nothing that centers me after a long day better than a well-made Manhattan.  See, I spend a great deal of my time bouncing between my home in Memphis and client sites in cities like San Francisco, DC, Detroit, as far away as India.  And in the […]
