A Thanksgiving Rosé: Mark Ryan Winery’s BTR “The Vincent”

Hi wine friends…and Happy #WineWednesday.  Tonight, I’m sharing one of my favorite rosés, the Mark Ryan Winery’s 2017 Board Track Racer “The Vincent” Rosé.  It’s a $15 wine that is worth every penny, it’s just really hard to find.  So, if you’re interested in it, I suggest buying directly from the website early in the year because they sell out fast. Cheers!

Question of the Day: What’s your favorite rosé?

A Bootleg Halloween

Hi wine friends! I’m sorry for not sharing my Halloween #WineWednesday pick, but the trick-or-treating and festivities went a little longer than I planned. I opened the 2014 Bootleg Red Blend, which was  $30 red wine and a perfect pairing for our slow cooker chili, a delicious addition to the hot cider we made, and a good choice for my favorite chocolate treats. Cheers!
