Champagne is a drink that people, young and old, all know and love too well.
Sometimes we love to drink wine so much that we often ignore the health ramifications and risks to our bodies.
We all love our wine, whether while at a bar, at a formal dinner, or at home.
Hey there wine lovers! Today we’re going to talk about where your favorite wines come from. In the states, we hear a lot about the Nappa Valley, which gives us all those great Californian wines. South of the Equator, Argentina has produced many high-quality wines and has developed a wide system of vinoculture, and New Zealand is renowned for the wonderful wines it produces. But the most famous and arguably highest quality wines of all come from the Mediterranean — especially Italy and France. Continue reading

As the weather gets hotter, it’s a great chance to prepare your favorite summer dishes. Anything involving corn, fresh catch, grilled meats…go for it. But what wine should be enjoyed with dishes like these? It can vary, depending on what you put out on the table. The key, though, is to find something nice and light to compliment your seasonal preparations. Just the same way it would be kind of silly to prepare a stew in July, certain wines just seem a little out of place in the midsummer heat. Continue reading
It’s obvious that the amount of people who are eating organic food is increasing. They realize that it’s just healthier to eat organically, and it’s not that hard to do either. I was surprised to learn that organic wine has also become increasingly popular. Continue reading
My friends birthday was this passed weekend, so a few of us decided to take a weekend trip to San Francisco. We aren’t big on going to crazy bars or clubs, so we decided to have his actual birthday celebration at a cute little cafe. Continue reading

How old does one have to be to enjoy the art of shopping on television? I see that there are many channels on my direct tv deals dedicated to shopping while watching TV but I don’t seem to be drawn in by the siren’s call just yet. I have tried to watch the channel that sells the expensive gem stones and the fancy jewelry but I just can’t seem to get in to it. Maybe I am watching the wrong channel. Maybe I should be watching the channel with the really comfy warm bedding for sale and the handbags with every crystal and rivet and rhinestone known to man. I have tried this channel as well and still nothing quite appeals to me. Maybe it is because of my age. Maybe I am too young to enjoy a good retail therapy session via my TV. I guess that is why they have online shopping but sometimes I just want lazy shopping. Bring it to my right in front of my face and all I have to do is dial an 800 number to get it. Heck you will make it even easier for me if I dial now I can have it in 4 easy payments of $39.95. Maybe I am into this whole shopping via
Easter and Passover are both quickly approaching, and both holidays usually involve the family getting together for dinner.No matter what the occasion is when you get together, it’s customary to bring a gift along to thank the host. Everyone knows me for being the one who brings the wine. I always bring the best wine from exclusive brands. They think I’m spending a lot of money each time I come over, but in reality I’m really not.
You might have guessed by now that I’m a big wine drinker. I tend to like the expensive rare wine, but I obviously like getting a great deal. This is why I’m part of several wine clubs, which allows me to get the wine I love, but still not spend more than I would like. I’m part of 3 clubs, so I get anywhere from 2-4 wine bottles a month. What I love about being part of a wine club, is I never have to go to the store to actually buy wine. I simply get the wine delivered to my house. (Insider’s tip: be sure to look for Gold Medal Wine Club coupons and promotions when you’re ready to buy)
What I also love about being part of the wine club, is that I get to experience the fine taste of different types of wine. I just got my wine for the month in, and my family is already asking me what type I will be bringing to the Passover dinner coming up.
I really get my moneys worth be being part of the club. While I do bring the wine to my dinners and drink it at home, I also use wine for cooking. If you are a wine lover like me, I would strongly suggest joining a club from GoldMedalWineClub.com, just like I did.
