This spring has been absolutely gorgeous. The past few years it felt as though it went right from winter to blazing hot summer. This year there has been plenty of rain and spring-like temperatures. The landscape is lush and flowers are abundant. Then it came time for me to trim my shrubs and Mother Nature […]

It’s been a while since I’ve done a wine review. I’ve neglected that portion of the blog. I’ve shared beverages like sangria and a margarita but not specifically wine. It isn’t because I’m not drinking wine. I drink a glass or two almost every single day. It’s more to do with focusing on food and all […]

Kitchen Sink Red Wine Reserve

How could a foodie pass up this wine? I know I could not. The words “kitchen sink” relate to so many things. One is that I find myself at the kitchen sink all the time. Darn those dirty dishes. My wine rack is beside my kitchen sink. I cook things with the “everything but the […]

Dr. Heidemanns-Bergweiler Pinot Noir 2009

Germany produces wines other than whites like Riesling. Yes, it is true. While most of the German wine produced is white, there is also red.
