What Are We Drinking Now? Krasno Orange Wine

Marshall is all about this orange wine from Slovenia. You will be, too. Krasno Orange Wine To me, each wine is an adventure. A new bottle can bring me to the hills or shores of new lands as much as a book or painting. I'm always searching for new wines, so when I saw an orange wine from Slovenia, I had to try it. Orange wine gets its name from the hue it takes on either through prolonged skin contact — similar to a rosé — or through aging in clay amphorae; this one gets its color from the [...]

It drinks soft and easy with a slightly salty finish. I paired [...]

What Are We Drinking Now? Bootstrap Strapless IPA & Gold Nonalcoholic Beer

Seth is grooving on some nonalcoholic beers that are powerfully tasty. Bootstrap Strapless IPA and Gold Nonalcoholic Beer More and more of you have been asking us for some great-tasting nonalcoholic beers, for a variety of reasons, and boy have we found some tasty options. Bootstrap has hit a home run with their nonalcoholic IPA and Gold Ale. Just because these beers have no alcohol doesn't mean they have no flavor. Both the IPA and Gold Ale are well-crafted craft beers, just without the alcohol (and both are gluten-reduced as well). The IPA is full-bodied with a solid 40 [...]

What Are We Drinking Now? Valdonica Mersino

Fleur has an Italian Vermentino that will leave you awed. Valdonica Mersino Celebrating the absolute fortune of a rainy spring... when nothing could please me more than a Moroccan braised rabbit, soft cherry chevre almond polenta, matched with the stunning layers of this Tuscan Vermentino. Basking in the resplendent flames of my backyard fire, the aroma of blooming Tiger Lilies mingled perfectly with the luscious mouthfeel of an Indian mango pudding. I was sooo taken aback by this wine's sophisticated finish of raw cumin, kaffir lime, and rhubarb that as I write this I am still swooning! Trust [...]

What Are We Drinking Now That There’s Sunshine? Biokult Grüner Veltliner

Bob has a wonderful asparagus wine for you. Biokult Grüner Veltliner By "asparagus wine" we don't mean it's made from fermented asparagus; rather, it pairs well with asparagus. Grüner Veltliner — or Groovy, as some of the cool cats have been calling it for a few years — is pretty Groovy to drink. You don't have to have a disco ball, wear bell bottoms, and have the Bee Gees playing in the background to be Groovy here, although that could be a fun night, too. Especially if you have the wine. The great thing about Grüner, other than being [...]
