Former life included @npr and @washingtonpost. I may pop up at one or another but mostly following my passion for wine. Can't wait to see what’s next!
Post-museum sustenance at @committeeboston! Loved the vibe, the glass of orange Greek wine, and all the fun nibbles!
I keep finding myself at @icaboston. The combination of water and immersive art make for a calming carefree afternoon. #icaboston
Pretty wine + pretty food help cancel out a dreary day! Thanks @pammyscambridge and @lo_hayes (sorry I missed you) for opening the @cobbwines Jack Hill Pinot. A nice Sonoma Coast treat! 🍷 . . . #winewednesday #wineporn #winesofinstagram #bostonwine #sonomacoastpinot #winestagram
Jumping into 2019 with a @sevenfiftydaily piece on how #craftdistillers can make sense of all the trade associations out there! 🥃 A bit outside my wine comfort zone, but fascinating to learn about their challenges and how the community can come together. 🔗 in profile! Enjoy! 🍸 . . . #craftspirits #craftdistilling #craftdistillery #craftdistillers #americancraftspirits #distilledspiritscouncil #americandistillinginstitute #winewriting
This meal was meant for last night, a substitute for my grand New Year’s Eve long weekend in DC with friends, but after being stuck in bed for 4 days while visiting my parents, I made the sad but wise decision to fly home yesterday afternoon just in time to pick up provisions from @davesfreshpasta. Was not quite up for the meal last night, but happy to report, today I am! Lobster ravioli 🦞, grilled shrimp 🦐 and lemon 🍋 Parmesan sauce. It paired brilliantly with this @undertwire sparkler (2014 Wentzel, pinot noir 🍇s) 🍾 I pulled from my wine fridge. Cheers to all for a happy and HEALTHY 2019 with more lobster and bubbles for all! 🥂
As we say goodbye to 2018, I couldn’t settle on my “top 9” or “best 9” (whichever app you choose), so I leave you with my #best25 which is a more comprehensive look at a year filled with delicious wines 🍷 and some fun writing opportunities ✍️. Thanks for following my journey! Looking forward to more wine-fueled posts in 2019! Cheers 🥂 🎉🎩🍾!
Thank you, @socialwines and @winegoddessbos for the delicious bubbles and fun tasting. 🥂Cedric always steals my ♥️ but super excited to have some Savart to pop on NYE! 🍾🎉 #butfirstchampagne #bemoresocial #farmerfizz #bostonwine #wineporn
Celebrating night seven with the incomparable @corisonwinery (and a viewing of @maiseltv!) 🍷 Couldn’t ask for a more perfect evening! . . #drinknapa #winesofinstagram #winestagram #wineporn #corisonnapavalley #bostonwine
Such a fun Tuesday night treat! Not just a @crusewine lineup, but an opportunity to chat with the man himself (scroll for my stealthy pic for proof). Great to see @drinkinsider and @ellen_bhang and meet Mara of @tastingcounter, too!
It was such an honor to meet Angelo Gaja and his son Giovanni yesterday here in Cambridge. Fascinating to hear how they are focused on biodiversity in the vineyard, and how the 5th generation is making changes at the winery. Their (now 100%) Barolo and Barbaresco are stunning examples of their history and hard work. 🍷 . . . #winesofinstagram #winestagram #winesofitaly #gaja #winemaking #bostonwine #barolo #barbaresco
A productive and successful Friday night: I lugged two huge boxes into my apt. and built two new @westelm counter stools all by myself, opened a stellar bottle of 2014 @wildefarmwines Bedrock Heritage wine (these bottles — with winemaker @paxmahle — are always so damn good!) and caught up with @somm_films third doc (as fun to watch as the first two!). 🍷🍷🍷
Thanksgiving part two (these are not leftovers!) Turkey, mashed potatoes, @inagarten’s artichoke and leek bread pudding, and Edmunds St. John’s Rocks and Gravel (opened yesterday, but so much better with a bit of a chill today!). Feeling stuffed, thankful and happy! 🍷#gobblegobble
In case you were wondering, 2017 Susucaru pairs well with Florida! 🌴🍷Perfect pre-Thanksgiving Wine!
Found while perusing the bookshelves of @harvardbookstore this morning. Published earlier this year, but this is my first encounter with it. Almost the same thrill as buying a bottle, is finding a new #winebook🍷📚! #winewriting #winebooks #tastingthepast #wineporn #winestagram
Celebrating #beaujolaisnouveau day sans the nouveau while waiting for the first snow of the season (which may actually just be 🌧). Lapierre Morgon, as stunning as ever. Cheers! 🍷
I think I’d rather drink the world 😉, but surprisingly impressed with this @andersfrederiksteen bottle! Not because I wasn’t expecting something fun and delicious, but because I opened the bottle Saturday, and here we are 4 days later and the wine is still juicy with bright fruit and it’s even more enjoyable to drink! #glouglou . . #letseattheworldwewanttolivein #vinnaturel #vin #wineporn #winestagram #winesofinstagram
👋🏼 a rare selfie on a rainy yet-still-good hair day. Moving to a new city hasn’t been easy and yesterday was a bit rough, but feeling a bit more like myself today! Cheers to a better Tuesday (despite the gloomy forecast)! ☂️
One last #lategram from a fun wine-fueled few days in New York! This from a Monday night post-#rawwinwenyc unwinding at @racines_ny. Lots of leftovers from an event with raw producers available by the half-pour on an evening that saw two nerd-worthy events happening in the restaurant’s small space. For me, just a perfect evening at the bar to taste, breathe and relax! Super knowledgeable (and friendly!) staff, too. Can’t wait for another visit!🥂🍷
