Nickel & Nickel Darien Vineyard Syrah 2013, Russian River Valley

Earlier this year I led a workshop on how to taste and write about wines at our company retreat in Savannah.  The wine we tasted was a Nickel & Nickel Chardonnay 2015, one of my favorite Chardonnays.  The workshop resulted in some inspiring and fun reviews of this fabulous wine.  In May I finally got to visit the gorgeous Nickel & Nickel Winery in Napa Valley.  We were taken on a tour of the of the entire place starting in the house. We walked across the yard in the breezy, warm May weather to the wine cellars. After the...

La Casa De Pedro, Fort Point Channel, Boston

Skillet Salmon with Quinoa, Feta & Arugula paired with Hill Family Estate Albariño 2016

When I have a long day of work I used to always take the easy way out with carb heavy dinners of pasta quickly thrown pot of boiling water with no regard to how much I was eating.  That was then.  I honestly now can’t remember the last time I did that and try very hard to eat healthier and more balanced, especially Monday to Friday.  The weekends are still a free for all where food is concerned.  I love to cook with Quinoa as you can manipulate it by adding ingredients to change the flavor and there is...
