Culinaria Festival Week 2014: Becker Wine Dinner at Francesca's at La Cantera Hill Country Resort

Deep In The Wine Glass of Texas … Culinaria 2014’s Becker Wine Dinner at Francesca’s at the La Cantera Hill Country Resort

There are times my line of work when I am required to work overtime, late into the evening, demanding my full attention and expertise … last week was one of those times.

But in my line of work, I absolutely do not mind having to work overtime ;)

I’m sure you wouldn’t either if ‘overtime’ involved a four course dinner and at the lovely Francesca’s at the La Cantera Hill Country Resort and paired with wines from the Texas Hill Country’s Becker Vineyards and Moniker Wine Estates of California’s Mendocino County. Read more →

Holiday Food & Wine Pairing: It’s all about the GPS!

That’s right! The GPS is the key to successful holiday food and wine pairings. Nooo, not THAT kind of GPS!  … Unless of course you are using THAT kind of GPS to navigate yourself to our wine shop :P The GPS that I am talking about is an acronym for Gamay, Pinot, and Sparkling. If you can remember those names long enough to get… Read more →

Insalata di Mare at Luce Ristorante & Enoteca

I don’t usually drool, but when I do … it’s at Luce Ristorante & Enoteca

Emily, the food blogger behind Defining Delicious, had an idea to bring together some San Antonio wine and food bloggers. Aside from the dire need for us all to have good food and good wine in front of us at all times, the real reason for this meetup was to bring the Alamo City’s vinous and culinary blogging voices together to bring more attention, focus, light, critique, etc. on the delicious things happening here! So many other cities have platforms for local bloggers to network, discuss, share (give each other even bigger blogger heads :P) but San Antonio in all its rapid growth is just a wee bit behind on the food and wine blogger meetups … but I have a feeling that won’t be the case for much longer.
