Authenticity – Best Served Chilled

It’s getting harder and harder to tell what authenticity looks like. Many times, deception rears its ugly head in marketing. In today’s competitive alcoholic beverage industry, I’ve seen many instances of deception. While some may feel that my language is too strong, I personally like to call things as I see them. Because I’m a geek of all things related to wine, when I see a new wine label, I research it. If curiosity was a drug, I’d be in deep shit. Delving into a new label gives me great […]

Be a Part of Something Bigger Than Yourself

The portrait of health is forever changing. Remember the food pyramid? I remember the $10,000 Pyramid, so fun! Remember the “Chicken Fat,” song?  Times, they are a changin.  Where does mental health fit in when determining our total health? Will I live longer if I get along with my neighbors? What impact do community events have on our well-being?  Does our participation or lack of, in these events shape us? I grew up in a small town. I was so lucky to grow up in a neighborhood chock full of […]

Champagne and Sparkling Wine, whats the difference?

Being in my late 20’s I will be the first to admit that most of my friends know very little when it comes to Champagne and Sparkling wine. One of my biggest pet peeves is hearing them call everything that has bubbles “Champagne”. It also seems to annoy them when I correct them, which is when they usually say something snarky like “whatever, same difference!” So I would like to set the record straight, right here and now and explain to my friends, and anyone else who may be confused […]

Living in the Midwest sure has it perks, no scenery, no oceans…ok, admittedly it’s not that great here, but the seasons are as magnificent as they are exasperating. When the sun shines and the weather is good, you best get your tails outdoors! Otherwise, if you hesitate…the moment can be lost. There are a lot of things that can be done during less than ideal weather: laundry, painting, cleaning, napping and […]
