  • Just 2 more days til I get to uncork a mag of this expressive Stuller Vineyard Pinot Noir from @bohemewines. I think it’s one of the only 5 wines you need for Thanksgiving. Check out the blog post at #linkinbio for the other 4!🍷Thanks for asking @living_in_a_nutshell 😘

  • Loved being part of the lunch rush at the airy new @brendasfrenchsf #oakland today. Fried chicken was on point, especially with the sparkling Rosé from the Loire. Be sure to try the watermelon rind pickles. Thanks chef Brenda-so glad to have you all in the neighborhood! 🙏🏽 🐔🥂. .

  • I don’t always drink Zinfandel, but when I do, I prefer one of these bright, bold and berrylicious bottles: 👑Rosemary’s Block by @brownestate and blends Big Blend by Mexico’s  @venacavavinos and The Disciples by @thecraneassembly.
All under $60 and guaranteed to wow on your Thanksgiving table. 🍷#repost .

  • Just in time for #internationalmerlotday loved exploring wines from St. Emilion. Standouts were bright and balanced blends of Merlot and Cab Franc with dark fruit and earth made near @chateauchevalblanc_ . Check out : @chateaujeanfaure @chateauyonfigeac and Chateau Grand Corbin. Thanks for the great tasting @ugcb_net @balzacomm 🙏🏾🍷

  • For all her accomplishments and renown, @jancisrobinson is refreshingly unassuming. And practical. Signing a copy of her new World Atlas of Wine at @flatironwinessf she tells me her desert island wine would be an old bottle of Madeira. Why? “Because you don’t know if it’s going to be a hot or cold desert island. If it’s hot the acidity would be refreshing and if it’s cold the alcohol would keep me warm.”🍷 I think we both dressed thinking of the Purple Pages, her fantastic wine news and review site. 🍇👯‍♀️ Sign up for the free version at my #linkinbio 📷:@dgblackburn

  • This time last year I was in Oaxaca de Juarez for Muertos,  molé and mezcal. Legend says the scent of Mexican marigolds, cempasuchiles, lead the spirits of loved ones back home. Who will you drink a toast to tonight? 💀🥃🌽
