The Generous Pour 2017 at the Capital Grille, Boston

On Saturday evening I ventured to the renowned steak restaurant, The Capital Grille in Boston with my friend Erika.  As I don’t eat red meat, it’s a rare occasion when I will purposefully book steak restaurants, however, each year the Capital Grille does a can’t miss summer wine event called The Generous Pour.  The first time I attended this wine event, which runs all summer was in Kansas City, Missouri with my friend, Lauren where they featured Women in Wine and now after three Generous Pours that one is still my favorite.

This past Valentine’s Day I decided to have a...

Supernatural Twitter Wine Tasting for The Divining Rod Wines

A few weeks ago I received an invite to a Twitter wine tasting for The Divining Rod.  I have done a few of these before and have always found them a lot of fun.  It is also good to try something a little different.  I agreed to the invite and also invited five of my girlfriends over to join me in the tasting and a little bit of dinner. Marc Mondavi, creator The Divining Rod wines has a unique “supernatural” gift that gives him the ability to locate underground water using divining rods.  Check out The Divining Rod website,...
