When one thinks of New York, they typically think of big city lights, sprawling sky scrapers, and busy bodies hailing down yellow taxi cabs. However, there is another side of New York state that is not often explored – wineries. @rednewtcellars is a wine and food lover’s paradise located on the east side of Seneca Lake in the Finger Lakes region of New York. Click the link in our bio and learn what makes this winery a destination fit for any wine lover. 📸: @flxwinecountry
“There’s no fake or frippery with Ferrari – when she preaches the Yalumba gospel, you realise that she’s doing it because she’s passionate about the place; she leaves the distinct impression that she wouldn’t waste her breath on anything she didn’t wholly believe in herself.
Meeting Jane Ferrari is unforgettable. Her job title at Yalumba is multifaceted. She is a storyteller, a communicator, a brand ambassador, a legend. Spend an hour with Jane and you'll find out more about the heritage and culture of Yalumba and the Barossa than most locals learn in a lifetime.” In a world full of fake and people trying to cut corners, taking things for granted, I can say whole heartedly the way @Yalumba describes Jane is 100% spot on after meeting her in #Austin . Yalumba is producing a one-of-a-kind Rosé in #Tasmania , in addition to their stunning production in Barossa. Check out Yalumba at the link in my profile to find out how to visit them in #Australia .

A crisp, refreshing and most importantly, delicious Pinot Grigio from our friend @aloisclemenslageder . The perfect summer wine ☀️😎👌...
#Winelovers - What are your plans for the weekend? Opening anything special? Visiting any wineries?? Let’s us know in the comments below!!👇...
It’s hard to miss me with a good white Burgundy. Minerality, chalk, great acid, as well as richness and depth of flavor. Chanson Meursault was sourced from four different plots of vineyards which allows the wine to show both structure and roundness. It was fantastic with our roasted and steamed fish.
Had a very fun night at @culinarthk where we had a molecular cooking workshop and a nice dinner 😋 Culinart is located at Wong Chuk Hang and we can have to whole place to ourselves~ The night started with canapés which were pretty good especially for mingling over some bubbles. Then the chef demonstrated how to use "science lab tools" to make "ikura and caviar" with a method called spherification and we were then given a chance to do it ourselves with our own creative plating (it does reflect the personality of the chef!). The beet cured salmon was so yummy that everyone kept eating it while preparing our appetizer. The soup was a consommé version of the Singaporean dish bak kut teh (肉骨茶) and it was distilled/infused from a hario coffee maker! It's got all the flavors but without the remains of the herbs and spices so for lazy bones like me, it was a lot easier to drink than the real version haha. The seared steak was overcooked but the peppers on the side were delicious! The dessert table was very fancy and instagram-worthy but probably not the best desserts out there. Lastly, we could make our own chocolate lollipops using molecular nitrogen and the chocolate was surprisingly yummy - a very nice balance of milk and cocoa!

THREE valuable tips for buying wine...
1) If you can’t pronounce the grape or the wine or even understand the label... BUY IT!! I know wine can be intimidating but you are up for the challenge!! I’m from New England and have a slight lisp... every word that comes out of my mouth is a disaster. Who cares if you say something wrong, don’t let an amazing wine get away for fear of sounding stupid. Nobody cares. You shouldn’t either.
2) If it’s a few dollars more than you intended to spend... BUY IT!! I’ve noticed that most customers opt to buy two bottles of crappy wine rather than splurge on one spectacular bottle. Guys, do you know what goes into that $5 bottle? I shudder. Splurge on the bottle that you truly want. Drink responsibly and drink better quality. You’ll thank me in the morning.
3) Return it IF it sucks the BIG one. I have never penalized a customer for honesty. If you are recommended a wine and you absolutely hate it or the bottle is faulted in some way, bring it back. Most wine consultants will appreciate the honestly if it’s done genuinely and tactfully. Remember, we are only human, sometimes our mind reading skills are off.
And that’s really all I have to say about that. Drink up!!
#Виноградники у подножия Везувия, в городе призраке!? Бывает и такое.Не каждый винодел может этим похвастаться! А #Mastroberardino может. #Вино Villa dei Misteri делают из винограда, который растет непосредственно на территории #Помпеи . Первый урожай здесь собрали в 2001 году и выпустили чуть более 1700 бутылок вина, которые достались избранному количеству любителей, участвовавших в специальном аукционе. Сегодня Villa dei Misteri - это 40% альянико, 40% пиедироссо и 20% шашинозо. «Это наше символическое посвящение этому месту. Здесь зародилась культура виноделия и здесь спустя 2000 лет мы хотим возродить вино Помпеи» - Антонио Мастроберардино. #vivalavigna#wineismyreligion#inlovewothwine#villadeimisteri#pompei#виновино#истинаввине#wineblog#winetravel
When you try to sneak one more bottle of wine into the grocery cart and pray that your husband isn't looking. 😂 Any other winos guilty of this?!🍷🥂 It's hard for me to walk out the grocery store without a bottle of wine. 🤷🏼♀️ Today on the blog, I am talking about 7 wine accessories that you need. If you are a big wine drinker, check it out and let me know if you own any of these items! Anyways, cheers to Friday! I hope your glass is full of something delicious tonight! 🍾
: Want to explore new #wine this weekend?
Check out @vagabond (locations in Clapham, #BatterseaPowerStation , #Fulham , Central and #Victoria ) where the premise is simple - load up a card with credit, grab a glass and select from their 100 bottle strong selection of wines, from 25ml and up.
Wines ranged in price from £1 to £3.50 which made for a great way to sample various regions, new varieties and compare #TastingNotes .
Sticking to #WhiteWine , we sampled this balanced #Marsanne and #Roussanne blend, a rich, refined #Xarello with notes of fennel, Greek #Roditis where the #winemakers add sap from the local pine trees, giving an light herbal taste and a stone fruit heavy #Priorat with a creamy finish due to ageing on the lees.
After finding two German wines listing grapefruit in the tasting notes, we found the #Reisling refreshing and the often underrated #Scheurebe more full bodied, making it the favourite find of the day.
If the sun ever makes a comeback I’m going back to dive into Rose, but their selection of reds would cheer up any rainy day in London!
Un Pinot Nero argentino!! 🍷.. dalla provincia di Neuquén, situata nella parte centro-occidentale del Paese. Dopo la fermentazione in vasche di cemento solo con l’ausilio dei lieviti indigeni, affina per nove mesi in barrique di rovere francese di secondo e terzo passaggio.
Il colore è rosso rubino scarico tipico di questa uva. Fresco e fruttato il bouquet: lamponi, fragoline di bosco e prugne. Un vino elegante, di buon corpo e dal tannino levigato. Ottimo con antipasti di terra e carni bianchi. Cheers🍷🍷

Fresh and fruity bouquet: raspberries, wild strawberries and plums. An elegant wine with a good body and smooth tannins. Excellent with meat starters and white meats. Cheers🍷🍷
