Austin Rose Wine Drinking Guide

Austin Rosé All Day Round-Up

Rosé. Or as I like to think of it, the water of life. (What? I don’t know.) Nothing makes me happier than a cold glass of a dry pink on a warm summer afternoon. Nothing, I tell you. Rosé is so important to my lifestyle and belief system that my incredible friends threw me a rosé-themed […] Read more…

Sonoma Wine Tasting | California Wine Country | Michel Schlumberger Food Wine Pairing

A Weekend in Sonoma Wine Country

Wine tasting is quite possibly my most favorite thing in the entire world. It should come as no surprise, then, that my recent trip to California to explore Sonoma wine country for the very first time was a huge highlight of my year! A 2015 travel experience second only to our amazing Caribbean adventure in April. If you’ve […] Read more…

House Pizzeria Austin Sausage Pizza

House Pizzeria… and MY New House!

Airport Blvd: what… a roller coaster of a road. You have sketchy stuff, you have cool stuff, it really is all over the place. Luckily, near my house, it gets pretty good, especially if you’re looking to eat some food. In-N-Out, Tyson’s Tacos, Casey’s New Orleans Snowballs, Quality Seafood, and… House Pizzeria. It took me […] Read more…

Austin Trader Joe's Wine

Rejoice! Trader Joe’s is in Austin

New Austin Trader Joe’s! NEW AUSTIN TRADER JOE’S! Really, what else is there to say besides that?! I’ve been waiting for this moment since I first moved to Austin.

Mueller HEB Cafe Counter

Falling in Love with the New Mueller H-E-B

Friends Just Wine in a Can

Canned Wine: It’s a Thing.

In case you didn’t know, I’m BACK! Back in America, and back on the blog. I have a massive Iceland post to share tomorrow, but today there are more pressing things, such as wine in a can. What? Yes. This is a thing that is happening in our lives (and livers). Canned wine: it is real. […] Read more…

Tinto de Verano: A Spanish Summer Sipper

The country of Spain has gotten a lot of things right. Siestas, incorporating cheese and ham into most foods, eating fresh olives, spending long days at the beach, and of course…. wine. That’s a pic I snapped in Granada, Spain back in 2009… one of the most interesting and beautiful places I’ve ever been! Tinto means […] Read more…
