A crisp, green apple-y champagne with a little honey on the finish. Fine as an option from our much-beloved non-Champagne Parigot Rose.

Awaiting lunch @bellstreetfarm…

Awaiting lunch @bellstreetfarm in lovely Los Alamos http://t.co/zx3nBQzq You walk in and it looks like a miniature version of  Ye Olde Soda Fountain (intentional mixed metaphor).

Diatom

Put California and Chardonnay together and rarely would you think they add up to these wines from Greg Brewer (Brewer-Clifton, Melville). His three chardonnays released in 2010 for this Diatom project totaled 5,460 bottles (455 cases). So, these are not easy to find unless you go directly to www.diatomwines.com. A weathered skeleton in windy fields…

Blue Bonarda

In a recent issue of Food + Wine magazine, they had a feature on “alternate reds” along with recipes to accompany. Not ever having tasted a bonarda before, as far as I know, the photos of the recipe looked great. So, we headed over to Silverlake Wine and picked up a bonarda. This one, from…
