Locations Wine by Dave Phinney – E Spanish Red Wine

The question that inspired Locations Wines: “What if one could blend across all of the major appellations, to produce a wine that represented a country of origin? What if one could do this across all of the major wine producing regions of the world. What if there were no rules? What if one had complete freedom to express whatever one believed. Could it be done?” Throw the rules away and see what you get.  Turning “skeptics into believers” Dave Phinney created Locations by sourcing the best grapes from renowned vineyards and turning them into extraordinary wines, which represent the...

Million Dollar Stew

Happy New Year to everyone!!!  Towards the end of last year I was very remiss on doing any posts and I shutdown almost completely on my blog writing.  The great excuse for this is my year-end at work gets out of control but in addition to work, I have been doing a coaching certification course with Columbia Business School in the evenings, which I love.  That said, I most definitely bit off more than I could chew as I am now frantically trying to catch up on overdue assignments.  With work and school, I was finding myself being left...

‘Tis the Season… Let’s Talk Bubbly

Buttermilk & Bourbon, Back Bay, Boston

I had been hearing a little buzz about a relatively new restaurant on Commonwealth Ave called Buttermilk & Bourbon.  It was time to try it out. On Saturday evening, my Uber dropped me off at the historic Back Bay Vendome building.  I was transported back to the late 90s when I first moved to Boston and would frequent a basement level restaurant and bar, which for the life of me I can’t remember the name of – help if you know?  They used to show old movies in their backroom on Monday nights where I would take myself to...

Dutch Oven Turkey Chili

I have been making chili since I was big enough to reach a cooker.  It’s a dish that is best shared with friends where they can help themselves to bowl (after bowl if desired) of meaty, deliciously spicy, tomato goodness.  The hearty warmth brings a smile to everyone’s face.  I stopped eating beef in my early teens because of “Mad Cow’s Disease.”  A horrible disease that scared the bejesus out of British people back in the 1980s.  I really don’t have any yearnings for it at all, which I know to some is a crying shame and I must say as a person...
