Make a great move with Checkerboard Vineyards

Make a great move with Checkerboard Vineyards

Chess and wine seem to go together like a hand and glove.  However, it seems that checkers do just as well when it comes to premium wines in Napa Valley.  Checkboard Vineyards has been producing some of the best wines in the region and offers a view that simply can’t be topped.  With a two and a half mile drive from the valley floor to the ridge where Checkerboard Vineyard is located, the scenery on the way up to this outstanding winery is absolutely lovely. When you’re located on Diamond Mountain, you certainly have a priceless name to follow the […]

Hop over to Frog’s Leap Winery

Hop over to Frog’s Leap Winery

When it comes to mixing fun, frolicking, wine, and a seriously twisted sense of humor into a great bottle of wine, the folks at Frog’s Leap hold the license on the blend.  Don’t believe us?  Read their story at their site and then tell us they aren’t some of the most hilarious folks in the wine making industry today (or any day, because they tell a tale better than any other).  We were immediately drawn to these misfits of the wine world and simply had to check out their wines. Fun times and great wines It all began in 1972 […]

Community awareness in the craft brewing industry

Community awareness in the craft brewing industry

The craft brewing industry has provided us with a huge array of interesting craft beer to collect, taste, and share with our friends and family over the years.  However, that is not the greatest thing they have provided to our craft beer community.  Each individual old or new craft brewery has been taking steps to make their communities greener, cleaner places to live and play and that, to us, deserves as much, if not more praise than the many brews they create for us to enjoy. Why are craft breweries doing this? When it comes to community, our craft breweries […]

Andretti Winery: Slowing down with premium wine

Andretti Winery: Slowing down with premium wine

Andretti is a name synonymous with speed, adventure, fast living, pretty women, and most of all, success.  Anyone who grew up watching any form of racing knew the name Andretti, whether your family watched IndyCar or NASCAR because they used the name Andretti right alongside Earnhardt, Petty, and other famous names of drivers throughout the sport.  While you may never have had the opportunity to experience the dedication Mario Andretti put into his driving, you’ll certainly appreciate the dedication and pride in each bottle of Andretti wine because he’s set a standard that not only meets but exceeds the standards […]

Frolic with Dancing Hares Vineyard

Frolic with Dancing Hares Vineyard

Tis the season for the hares to be frolicking within the vineyards of Napa Valley and this season is going great for Dancing Hares Vineyard.  This small estate offers a variety of wines that are sourced from grapes that grow within a range of soils you would be hard-pressed to find anywhere else in such an outstanding display.  Sitting on just 5 acres, you wouldn’t believe the quality that this little estate is capable of producing until you taste their wines.  Their premium wines are exquisite, with an air of dedication and commitment that seems to be infused into every bottle […]

IPAs and great food pairing

IPAs and great food pairing

Recently, we’ve spent quite a bit of time checking into different craft beer, new craft breweries, and outstanding brewers here in the United States.  The result has been the creation of a long list of really great, high-quality craft beers and breweries that we plan to revisit.  However, we don’t spend that much time talking about the food pairing aspect of craft beer.  We’d like to change that, so today, we’re going to focus on the really great food we’ve had that paired up well with our brews. With so many different types of craft beer on the market, it […]

At Rustic Ridge Ranch & Winery in California, the high standards they have set for their service extend to every aspect of their operations.  Located on a former Thoroughbred breeding farm, the owners continued the tradition of racing excellence and still breed and race outstanding athletes in the Thoroughbred racing industry.  However, they’ve taken that high standard and applied it to another area as well, the production of amazing premium wines. Wine and horses are a winning combination While you might think that wine-making and horse racing are not exactly great bedfellows, you would be wrong, at least according to history. […]
