Wine Dog ...

Our wine dog, Belle.  Belle came to me during harvest 2012 at the playful age of 1 year old.  Now at age 2, she is not only our wine dog, friend, guardian, but a big helper to our older dog, Mocha.  Mocha is a chocolate lab who has a hard time getting around these days.  Belle knows Mocha needs help and is always right there to help her up the stairs.  It is some of the smallest things in life to be thankful for.

Fall Wine!

Does your palette change with the seasons?  I will go on record as always saying, "I am a couch-potato white wine drinker and a red wine social drinker".  But with these past few chilly days, I may be rethinking that.
Most of the time we change our meals from salads in the summer to stews in the winter which means we will change our wine selection from a white to a red naturally.  But how does a couch-potato wine drinker change??  I believe I will be doing some further studying as the temperatures continue to drop...
