How to find a new favorite wine

Last month I was invited to dinner at one of those splashy Miami restaurants. I arrived early and decided to order a glass of wine at the bar. They had an eclectic, by the glass selection which immediately raised my good vibe of the establishment. As I sat there enjoying a glass of Franciacorta, I grew increasingly disheartened listening to what people were ordering. I must have heard at least a dozen times, “I’ll have a glass of Chardonnay/ Pinot Grigio/ Cabernet”, and that’s OK if all you want is something in your glass you are familiar with. The longer I sat there the stronger my urge grew to ask someone, “Don’t you have any sense of adventure? They have such a great selection of wine by the glass!”

Precept Wines: The side of Washington you want to know

In a recent trip, I discovered that there’s a side of Washington State we should all get to know: Precept Wine Country. While most of us associate the state with rain, Frasier, (and for us movie lovers) Sleepless in Seattle, and why not, the Twilight Saga, Washington State has a desert… Yes! A desert. This vast, breathtaking appellation is the ideal territory to cultivate our favorite drink – Wine.
