Elk Run offers a variety of wines from dry to sweet but their portfolio focuses on dry wines of which they have listed 15 […]

Riesling Styles – Michigan or New York

Terry and I have an ongoing debate. He prefers the Riesling wines that we discovered on Leelanau and Old Mission Peninsulas in Michigan, while I favor Rieslings from around Seneca and Cayuga Lakes in the Finger Lakes region of New York. The Riesling wines from Michigan tend to have a hint of minerality on them. […]

Wine in Scotland

There are wineries in England, a few in Wales and a vineyard has been planted in Scotland next to the Ardeonaig Hotel and Restaurant. According to the Daily Record, Chef Pete Gottgens planted Riesling vines four years ago. If the weather this summer cooperates he will make a Riesling wine. The article was complimentary until […]

Baily’s Vineyard & Winery Riesling

We recently opened a bottle of wine from Baily Vineyard & Winery. The bottle was so beautiful that it was tempting to say, “Don’t open this bottle – save it.” However we opened it and are glad we did. This was a commemorative bottle featuring Temecula, California’s 150th anniversary from 1859 to 2009.  On April […]

Blogging about the “Wine Experience”

For a wine lover, what kind of wine is good for hot, summer days? Think about purchasing a […]

A Riesling 2008 at Temecula Valley

  The other day we opened a bottle of Riesling that was full of aroma and flavor. Maurice Carrie Winery in Temecula Valley, California produces a 2008 Riesling that is delightfully aromatic and with a taste to match. The summer fruit nuances reminded me of peaches and pears. With an aroma of floral and fruit […]

Winexpert’s Selection Spéciale Series Riesling Ice Wine Style

If you enjoy wine but have shied away from making your own I recommend that you try the Winexpert Selection Spéciale Series. The Riesling Ice Wine Style won a gold medal and although costlier than other wine kits, the results are good. It took us about two months to make the wine. This is a […]

Bottling Our First Sweet Wine

On Saturday we bottled our first sweet wine. This was our second bottling of a wine produced from a kit.  Since our last bottling, we had purchased a floor model corker and it was definitely worth it. This corker only takes one person to cork a bottle. According to the wine kit, we should have […]
