True Heritage Wine

There is a brand of wine I’ve been wanting to try True Heritage Wine. They don’t have a tasting room so you can only order online or find a vendor that sells their wine. Although I’ve done it before with good results, I’m not a fan of buying wine blind. So when I stumbled on…

What’s Old is New Again

It’s been a long time since we’ve visited 8 Chains North. The last time we were there was at least 6 years ago. Its not that we didn’t like their wines but at the time I really wasn’t into red wines and that’s their specialty. In the past few years my taste buds have broadened…

19 Crimes

Ok, a good friend of mine told me about 19 Crimes. He wanted our opinion on it, because he said I was a wine snob. I just like good premium wine. Hell, my momma calls me bougie when it comes to this wine game. So enough of me, let’s get to 19 Crimes. It’s a…

Rappahannock Cellars

I have been stalking Rappahannock Cellars for quite some time. I was attracted to this winery because they have a great variety of wine and good reviews. Our anniversary seemed like a great time to visit. They are located at the cusp on the Shenandoah Valley and the mountain views are awesome. They are changing…

Is That Traminette? Why, Yes It Is!

Traminette is a sweet wine, right? I always thought it was until now. This Traminette right here has the notes of this varietal but not the sweet taste. It is different. How so you ask? This was fermented with the skin. So this wine from Doukenie is something new. Doukenie had a growing of Traminette…

Chambourcin 2010

Yesterday my wife and I went to one of our favorite places to sip and savor, Zephaniah Winery in Leesburg Va. A place we always have fun and get a chance to talk to Bill and Bonnie, the owners. The reason for this post is to let the world know that they make great wine….

Our Visit to Zephaniah Farm Vineyard

What a great winery! We lucked up and had Bonnie and Bill, the owners, help us. They are such nice people. Zephaniah Farm Vineyard is a little different from other wineries in that instead of ponying up to the tasting bar, you choose one of 3 rooms to sit in and they bring the wine…

Thanksgiving Cocktail

This year, we hosted Kelley’s family for Thanksgiving. We thought it would be fun to have a cocktail and Half Baked Harvest came to the rescue. We decided to try her Grapefruit Margarita sans the spice and made a big batch.  The first step was to hit Costco for the tequila. You cannot beat $20 for a large bottle…

Groupon is Your Friend 

A few weeks ago, I was on Groupon and saw a deal for Running Hare Winery that we could not pass up. Normally the Groupon’s for this winery run $22 but on this day they were $5 off plus an additional $10 so we paid $7 at the end of the day for 2 wine glasses and a bottle…

Frederick Wine Festival 

​We won tickets from Jen over at Love and Wine Blog to attend the Frederick Wine Festival. Thanks Jenn!! First off, it was hot as hell when we went and because I was on vacation and hadn’t been to the grocery store, we hit up Costco for the Caesar salad and chicken sandwich combo for $6.99. Yay…
