Vino DIY
By Nirmala Nataraj (Jul 2, 2009)
Ever wanted to make your own bottle of wine but feared that you just didn’t have the know-how to tell your Barbera from your Dolcetto grapes? Then a summer learning session at Crushpad, the five-year-old DIY winery located in Mission Bay/Dogpatch, is definitely in order. And don’t worry -- you won’t need to crack the books too hard to try your hand at being a vintner. Crushpad’s no-nonsense yet down-to-earth approach to the fine art of winemaking lets you make your own barrel without the inconvenience of hauling your own grapes or selecting the right fermentation vessel. More

By genevieve robertson (Jan 9, 2005)
Don't you just want to say Grüner Veltliner (groo-ner felt-lih-ner)? It sounds like the name of a German philosopher or an avant-garde movie director you pretend to know whenever you hear it in conversation. More

Monks Know Best
By genevieve robertson (Jan 5, 2005)
With Cinco de Mayo quickly approaching, thoughts turn to an evening of tacos, tamales, margaritas, and beer. However, my drink of choice for such festivities, as you can likely guess, is sangria. Simply a wine punch, it can be thrown together in a matter of minutes and enjoyed immediately. More
The French way to while away the afternoon
By genevieve robertson (Jan 5, 2005)
A good friend of mine took a trip to Antigua a while ago and came back with a term I took to quite quickly, "FLFL". It stands for f--king long French lunch, the idea being that you find yourself a nice little café, preferably with sidewalk tables, on a beautiful, sunny, mid-week afternoon and devote at least three hours to an indulgent meal.

I know pink wine has bad connotations after the 80s White Zin craze -- and pink wine with bubbles is even more frightening to most, but for the sake of Valentine's Day, you might want to give it a chance. We all know how happy those bubbles make us feel, and well, come on, what do you really have against pink? More

Most of us know what to expect if we order a Cabernet or Merlot in a restaurant, but say you're in an Italian restaurant and want to drink an Italian wine. There's always Chianti right?

An air of extravagance and glamour surround Champagne and sparkling wines. The bubbles go straight to your head and make you smile like no other libation. It's no wonder they are the choice to ring in the New Year, and even better that these luxuries can be had at an affordable price. More
