This week Mary and I reviewed these two lovely sparkling wines from Alsace! The Meyer Fonne Brut Extra was a little extra but really lovely. The Willm was a bit cheaper…still solid but not as interesting. Both are nice deals at $17 and $14! Here’s our show…Enjoy!
I’m not so bold as to consider myself an expert at cocktails, but I sure enjoy making them at home. You don’t need everything pictured here but a few of them come in awfully handy! Mary and I talk about cocktail essentials which insure happiness at home!
Indeed! This week Quiz Master Mary tests my knowledge to the max! (I did fine!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!) Enjoy the show!
Savoie Fare! Get it! Vin de Savoie!!! Hilarious! I’m here all week ladies and gentlemen! Try the veal and don’t forget to tip your waitress. We have two super nice light red wines. Most wine from the Savoie (which is the alpine region of France near Switzerland) is white but this is a nice light […]

Well mes petits amis it’s almost Thanksgiving and Mary and I are planning our wine strategies for the holiday. This year Kati and I are both working on Thursday so we have created Thanksgiving Monday. We are planning a medium sized Bacchanal and are asking our guests to UBER over! Mary is bringing dessert…we will […]
