Every Winery Has a Story to Tell

  Every winery has a story to tell. Some begin with romance and others with passion. The dreams and visions of each wine maker are unique, yet they collectively bring a liquid art form into the world that fuels the mind, body and soul of those that enjoy it. Behind every bottle is a late night harvest, a growing emergency, a magical discovery, a pruning love affair, or a blending accident. Allie Merrick and Peter Eizel want to help wineries share their story…in their own words. Allie and Peter have been telling their story about wine in their own words […]

Does this glass make my wine look fat?

  Does this glass make my wine look fat? Sometimes skinny can be too skinny? Sometimes skinny is not always a good thing. Exhibit A – Kirstie Alley trying to be skinny. Exhibit B – Kate Moss…any day. How about a skinny wine glass? I really didn’t think my wine glass needed to go on a diet, but according to Ravenscroft Crystal, “the wine glass should be invisible and not compete.

The Perfect Blend of Wine, Food, Elegance and People

For three hours on June 3, a little thing called Twitter brought thousands of wine lovers together for one purpose; celebrate Washington Wine. While #WAWine may not have been the largest of this year’s tasting events by volume of tweets or number of tweeters, it arguably propelled the largest amount of wineries and businesses into action.

A Skype Chat With Seattle Wine Gal

“Who the hell is this SeattleWineGal girl,” I thought as I started my tweeting and blogging adventure in November. Her avatar was cute…her blog showed a picture of her chuggin’ wine from a bottle and there was a social media slide show on her site called “What the F**k is Social Media.” Seattle Wine Gal was an enigma wrapped in a mystery. Enter the scene six months later and now Barbara Evans (aka @SeattleWineGal) is a Seattle socialite, Twitter Goddess (dare I say Twoddess), and full time Social Media consultant. Barbara is one of the rare few that have successfully […]
