By Jonathan Palevsky | Posted in Host Blogs, Word on Wine | 2 Comments

This week Mary takes one for the team and tastes two cold weather whites.  The Riesling was particularly fabulous…I am only the slightest bit jealous. 1)2013 Seebrich Niersteiner Hipping Riesling Spatlese.  Mary loved this especially with Asian food.  A mere 8.5% alcohol and a total treat.  At $15 a steal! 2)2012 Kientzler Pinot Blanc.  Alsace.  […]

By Jonathan Palevsky | Posted in Host Blogs, Music In Maryland | No Comments

OK this title is a bit misleading…they aren’t playing together but Brian Ganz and the BSO are both featured on this week’s Music In Maryland.  I programmed this show because the Hopkins symphony are playing the Rachmaninov Symphonic Dances tonight and Brian Ganz is playing with them.  You can still make tonight’s concert at 8 […]

It’s been ages since Mary and I had a chance to sample some wine together!  Work gets in the way of so many important things.  I bought a couple of whites from the Cotes de Gascoigne and we couldn’t have been happier.  Both of these wines were made from a combination of Gros Manseng, Colombard […]
