Peaches and wine

One of my great joys of late summer is biting into a juicy, succulent peach and experiencing that expression of sun and soil. It doesn't happen with each one. All too often, they have been picked before their prime. The flesh is too solid and barely enough juice to wet my palate, much less dribble down my… Continue

South Beach Wine & Food Festival - Wine

Yes, we haven't focused much on the wine that was served at the South Beach Wine & Food Festival - mainly because there are so many other choices. But wine is an integral part of the event, starting with The Celebrate France! Pavilion held in the Village. Attendees didn't have to wait for the Grand Tasting tent to open in order to sample nice wines. Inside the tent were wines from obscure regions such as Languedoc, sparkling… Continue

Wines of Spain Seminar - Doug Frost

I have been stalking Doug Frost for a number of years now for a number of different reasons. First, he is the most knowledgeable wine "geek" I know.

2010 South Beach Wine & Food Festival - Day 1

We had a very tiring first day of the 2010 South Beach Wine & Food Festival, perhaps from too many spirits during the Trade Tasting. Its difficult to say no to premium rum, vodka, and VEEV acai - not even mentioning the abundant still and sparkling wines. We saved those for Best of the Best and for Day 2. And speaking of the Best of the Best - the food and wine was unbelievable. I spent the evening tasting Burgundy and Russian… Continue
