For quite some Time I have wanted to add a Wine section. As many of you know my love for wine, whether it is pairing foods, cooking, tours or enjoying a girls night!

I have my parents to thank for all their extensive knowledge and love of wine, which they have shared with me over the years. Currently, my Father and I have finished our 2 batchs of Riesling Ice Wine and a Barolo, Italian Red wine. We are now working on our Chocolate-Raspberry Port Wine which should be ready soon!

I would like to share with you my endless list of favorites, and what the pair well with!
