As media, I get invited to some pretty fantastic events around Austin. I don’t receive compensation other than the yummy food and drink. Here are a few I recently attended: Last Thursday, The Wine and Food Foundation held Toast of Texas, an event honoring the wines featured in Jessica Dupuy’s list of the best wines […]

NY girl in TX…#TXwine in NY-Wedding Oak Winery

Last month marked a milestone for me. I have officially spent more of my life in Texas than in NY. I moved here 22 years ago at the age of 22. It was supposed to be a two month adventure. I love sharing New York with my Texas friends, Texas with my New York friends. […]

Who’s your Mama?-Choosing a Mother’s Day Wine

Some clichés don’t bother me a bit. In fact, some, I relish. Like pink for Mother’s Day. Pink flowers, pink cards and pink wine suit me just fine. While the color choice may be cliché, I am certain your mother is not and she deserves a wine choice that fits her personality. Mom-Next-Door She answers […]
