From Coterie to Cuvée

An Interview of Coterie Cellars, an Urban Winery

There was a time when the term "urban winery" would have been considered an oxymoron. But for wine producers who source their fruit from growers, the lack of attachment to any particular vineyard allows for a great degree of choice regarding winery location. An increasing number of them are opting to set up shop in areas that may be a distance from the nearest grapevines, but which are… Continue

Molecular Gastronomy, Isn't It Really Just Culinary Boredom?

Are we so bored with our food that we need to find new and sometimes freaky ways to deliver the very same flavors we've gotten extremely used to over the last millennium of eating? I understand the artistry behind Molecular Gastronomy but I've always wondered why it was neccessary for the diner to surrender himself to the experience in order to partake in the particular "magic" the kitchen was producing. Now I've yet to make my way to El Bulli outside Barcelona, Ferran Adria's world class… Continue

Looking for a wine for the warmer weather- try a Rosé

Now that the weather is officially feeling like summer, or at least what summer feels like for most of the country, it is time to break out the summer wines. My husband and I love entertaining, and when it starts to get warm out, we enjoy having friends over on the patio for a few glasses of wine on the porch or patio.



During the warmer months, I love a nice dry rosé. Rosé wines are sometimes confused with White Zinfandel, however, there are some excellent dry rosés, which are quite… Continue

Want your feedback...

Hello everyone. I would like to have everyone's feedback on my new line of wineracks, the Vynebar, that I am trying to get out into the market. I designed and made them myself (actually hired someone to fabricate them).



I really think there is a need for a space saving winerack that you don't have to sit on your countertop and waste space. I decided to have a total of 20 different color and size combinations to provide a wide range of colors for your individual design… Continue

Organize your cellar

How many times do you go to your wine cellar (or closet, perhaps) to pull out a bottle of wine and just cannot find what you are looking for? Or, perhaps you don’t have anything in mind, and you are worried that you are going to end up drinking a $100 bottle, when you really just want to relax with a $15 bottle. (This has happened to me, so you are not alone.)



In the spirit of ‘Organize Your Home Office Day,’ I am feeling filled with enthusiasm about finally getting our wine… Continue

Datz Deli in South Tampa offers a great wine experience

The residents of South Tampa long awaited the arrival of the much talked about Datz Deli, and it looks like they are not disappointed now that Datz is up and running. Each time I have driven past Datz, the parking lot has been full and when I have ventured in, the place has been abuzz. Datz is reminiscent of a gourmet city deli, comfortable enough to swing by to pick up a quick lunch, but with an extensive enough menu of well thought out soups, salads and sandwiches to keep your interest for an… Continue

Grapes & Gastronomy

An Interview with the CEO of Headstart Gourmet

When we think of food and wine together, it often involves pairing the two. We might have an aromatic white to go with our papaya salad, a hearty red to drink with that filet mignon, or a dry rosé to enjoy with an antipasto plate. But what about integrating wine into food? That's a bit of a different story and one that far fewer people think about, much less actually practice. That is, of… Continue
