2018 Uncork Urbana Wine Festival

2018 Uncork Urbana Wine Festival

I was so pleased that the rain held off long enough for me to attend and enjoy the 2018 Uncork Urbana Wine Festival on Saturday, June 9. There was live entertainment, cooking demonstrations, and food trucks that add to the experience, but I’m all about the wine.

2014 Sterling Vintner’s Collection Merlot

2014 Sterling Vintner’s Collection Merlot

This Merlot is very dry, dense, and juicy. Sterling Vineyards started in the 1960s and released their first vintage-dated Merlot in 1969, at a time when this variety had typically been used for blending.

Know Your Server, Meet Management

Know Your Server, Meet Management

Over the years I have learned that not all servers in restaurants and wineries are the same, and there is much to be gained by engaging them in conversation, as well as the owners or managers.

When comparing servers, I’m not talking about the basic quality of service they provide, but instead the knowledge of their offerings and enthusiasm with which they present them.
