Healthy Wines

Guest blog post by Nan Gibbons As a female fitness trainer, I am often asked for advice about foods and drinks which are beneficial to your health.

Five Wine Tasting Tips For Wine Newbies

Guest blog from wine slinger Ben Hilzinger Anyone from the smelly shmuck sitting beside you on the bus to the overworked soccer mom behind you in line at the shopping mall would agree that in order to taste wine, you must drink it first.  Not everyone, however, understands that drinking doesn’t necessarily mean tasting.

The Joy of the First Time

Remember when you first fell in love? This weekend I was reminded of what it was like to explore wine for the first time. Do you remember you first wine experience? Think back to the explosion of flavor, the romance, the mystery…and the excitement of the unknown. Do you sniff then swirl, or is it sip, then sniff? What is a Rose? What is the all the fuss?
