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!
A change of wine pace tonight: Back to the traditional thanks to this wonderful Château Pichon Baron vertical tasting (2008-2015) with Managing Director Christian Seely. Such a treat to taste these vintages side by side and hear directly from the winery.🍷 . . . #winesofinstagram #wineporn #pichonbaron #bostonwine #bordeaux #winestagram
Conquering Monday the only way I know how. Was sorry to miss @thecollectress this weekend, but appreciate the leftover bubbles being served tonight! And super fun to finally see @rebelrebelsomerville, @vin_drop’s new wine bar, in action! . . #bostonwine #vinnaturel #winesofinstagram #wineporn #winestagram #yeswayrosé #butfirstchampagne
Also today: A little wine shopping at @socialwines. Sorry I missed you @winegoddessbos, but happy to see these two red-waxed beauties on your shelves along with some required reading! 🍷
It’s definitely autumn in New England! A few bright spots from my commute this morning. 🚙🍁🍃🍂🌳
Spent some time with the #vawinechat crew this evening kicking off #vawine month with some iconic red blends. (Shhh ... I secretly added in an @earlymountain rosé to use as a palate cleanser between tastes!) The Virginia Heritage (scroll to see the bottle and participating wineries) is a delicious way to toast the state’s 400 years of winemaking! 🍷
When a Tuesday feels like a Thursday and you wish it was because you‘re lovedrunk, but the reality is it’s 🌧☔️ and the to-do list is a mile high, while the world continues to spin off its rocker. Thank heaven @jolielaidewines is here with a wine I’m nicknaming lovedrunk because of its quirky label. A robust, yet brooding Gamay Noir with a slight brightness to keep my soul optimistic. ✨ . . . #wineporn #winestagram #winesofinstagram #bostonwine #gamaynoir #jolielaide
A fun surprise! I won tickets to see @jaymohr37 at @citywinerybos! A beautiful venue, a decent wine list and a whole lot of laughs. Not bad for a Thursday night! 🍷
Not sure what took me so long to open the 2017, but all of the hype is for real! So much deliciousness in the first few sips, can’t wait to see how this evolves the rest of the night (if i don’t drink it all in the next few minutes!) Leave it to @frankcornelissen_winery #susucaru to turn my Monday around. 🙃💥☄️💫🍷Feels good to breathe!
Delicious wines @nathaliewinebar! Enjoyed sharing some sparkling Muscadet, @minimuswines Syrah and a pretty Fleurie with @doctornoah! Love it when my friends come to Boston and want to visit!
Another amazing wine dinner hosted by @puritanco. This time a 4-vintage tasting of @ariannaocchipinti #ilfrappato plus #sp68 and two Tami wines which were marvelously paired with Chef @wdgilson food. My favorites (scroll to see) were a baked scallop and a 50-layer lasagna. I may never eat again. . . . #winestagram #wineporn #vinnaturel #ariannaocchipinti #bostonwine #cambridgewine #winesofinstagram #winewednesday
If society is going to declare today the last day of summer, may as well go out with a bang! #vinirabasco paired with an impromptu viewing of Vicki Christina Barcelona! Strawberry juice FTW! . . #wineporn #winestagram #vinnaturel #winesofinstagram #vinorosato #yeswayrosé #cancelli #labordaywine
A beautiful escape back to reality! 🥂
Couldn’t have asked for a more perfect day to ferry over and explore #marthasvineyard! My only complaint? I couldn’t find @heitzcellar anywhere! 😉 oh, whoops! Wrong Martha’s! 🙃#onceawinegeekalwaysawinegeek
Savory sunshine in a glass with a label that just happens to match my floors. Been bummed for a few weeks after hearing @paxmahle split from Wind Gap. It’s a good thing he still has @paxwines and other projects! 🥂 . . #winestagram #wineporn #winesofinstagram #trousseaugris #sonomawine #windgap #thirstythursday
