“Hops ‘r Better” Winer

Wine: Chardonnay
Type: White
Vineyard: Ravines Wine Cellars

Buy local 

“Bright appearance, with full aromas. A full-bodied White. The finish is layered-complex. An overall excellent Chardonnay from Ravines Wine Cellars in Finger Lakes, New York, USA.

I rated this 90 in Quini, and it’s well worth that number and more… If you’re a Chardonnay bigot or someone that’s looking to taste something interesting and intriguing, then find this at your local liquor store and let me know your thoughts.”
“This is the Life” Winer

Wine: Wild Horse Chardonnay 2012
Type: White, Dry
Vineyard: Wild Horse Winery & Vineyards

Buy local or find it at

Fresh, crisp aroma and flavors – nicely balanced with citrus, green apple and a touch of vanilla.  Paired nicely with a summer salad laden with goat cheese, cranberries and pecans.

The “Timeless” Winer

Wine: Siciliana Nero d’Avola 2013
Type: Red, Dry
Vineyard: Siciliana Winery (Sicily, Italy)

Buy local or find it at

Another lovely red, rich in color but not too dark.  Earthy and spicy, with a good strong finish.  We had it with pizza, a bit of steak pizzaiola and some very good friends.  We laughed and drank the bottles dry.  Then we cried and told the lies only good companions can.

The “Hippy” Winer

Wine: Tuscan Sun Tondo Tondo Sangiovese 2011
Type: Red, Dry
Vineyard: Frances Mayes’s Tuscan Sun (Tuscany, Italy)

Buy local or find it at

A fabulous bright ruby red in color. On the tongue, I found hints of summer herbs, cherry and red berries.  We broke open a couple of bottles to go with some aged pecorino, prosciutto ham and some absolutely astounding stories.  Why these people don’t write is beyond me.

 We hope you enjoy our picks and would love to hear what you think,
