The last time we were in the stunning land of the king of grapes - Nebbiolo aka Barolo we feasted on every appellation that produced this magnificent but temperamental grape. From the north - Gattinara/Ghemme/Lessona to the prized crus in the communes of La Morra, Serralunga d039;alba, Monforte d039;alba, Castiglione Falletto. 🔥 🔥 🍷We Noshed on regional specialities thanks to the hospitality of these magnanimous producers who annually partake in THE Food, wine, music, literature festival @collisioni 🔥 🔥 🍷Best of all we discovered the magic of Nebbiolo thanks to erudite wine experts @antoniogalloni @iandagata_vino &, the producers and winemakers in the flesh, and some of the finest wine peeps in the world. 🔥 🔥 🍷Wine genie @colangelopr is hosting the world039;s largest tasting dedicated to all things Barolo & Barbaresco our side of the pond and we couldn039;t be more excited! #bbwo2020 🔥@langhe_vini 🔥 🍷Who039;s joining me in this one of a kind soiree in celebration of the king Nebbiolo? #FollowFriday #wineday #nyc
"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you don039;t do than the ones you did. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover" - H Jackson Brown. 🔥 🔥 🔥 🍷And we are so glad that the trailblazer Mr. Bob Lindquist (one of the original Rhone Rangers who took the risk to bring the seductive grapes of Rhone Valley to America - Syrah, Viogneir) took another chance and planted the majestic grape Roussanne in the iconic Bein Nacido Vineyard in Santa Maria Valley AVA in Santa Barbara County. 🔥 🔥 🔥 🍷 Roussanne grape name was inspired by it039;s russet aka roux color of it039;s skin. It039;s most often used as a blending partner to Syrah in Rhone along with the productive white grape Marsanne. In America, specifically California Roussanne reigns supreme. 🔥 🔥 🔥 🍷Haunting aromas of ripe stone fruit, exotic spice, white flowers, green tea, honey, medium to full body - Roussanne on its own produces hedonistic, rich wines. And then their is Bon Lindquist039;s version. 🔥 🔥 🔥 🍷 The 2012 @qupewine Roussanne thanks in part to Bien Naciodo vineyard039;s higher altitude cooler site delivers a kaleidoscope of aromas & flavors from sweet pear, ripe pineapple, bruised red apples, vanilla, herbal tea to roasted hazelnut and honey. Infamous for it039;s opulence, Bob Lindquist039;s brilliant wine making delivers a wine that is nimble on its feet, boasting both freshness and balanced acidity. Bravo!! 🔥 🔥 🔥 🍷On a personal note, Enamored in the moment, the beautiful landscape, cerebral conversations, vacation mode - we too have indulged in our fair share of wine purchases on our many trips to various wine country. Opening the bottles in the comforts of our home, there have been disappointments & some thrilling moments. And yesterday was inarguably one of the moments that validated Bob Lindquist & Jim Clendon039;s of @aubonclimatwine trimphant partnership in wine, where to this day they continue to handcraft a cornucopia of deeply-intriguing wines at unbelievably modest prices.
“I enjoy cooking with wine. Sometimes, I even put it in the food" - Julia Child 🔥 🔥 🍷We 💯 agree with Ms. Childs. With cooler temperature at our footsteps, I was craving a hearty meaty stew. Chef @tylerflorence Ultimate Beef Stew called for marinating the meat in a bottle of wine - sold. 😁 🔥 🔥 🍷We chose an 100% Garnacha from Spain, one of the many bottles we had purchased for our @wsetglobal Diploma blind tasting sessions from our local boutique gem @timswinemarket We r pros at recycling food and wine 😁 🔥 🔥 🍷The extra ripe Garnacha grapes with blackberries & licorice notes added that touch of sweetness to the stew while the old world earthiness mirrored the mushrooms in the gravy. Verdict = 💯 lip smacking guaranteed.
Do you recall what you were doing last year this time? I had the most unforgettable tasting with Mr Selbach right here in our backyards - Orlando. 🔥 🔥 🍷 As Pinot Noir is to Burgundy, Nebbiolo to Piedmont, Syrah to Hermitage, Germany is the holy grail for all things Riesling – one of the most versatile white grape variety in the world, capable of evolving into some of the longest-living, racy wines. 🔥 🔥 🍷Riesling from Germany (Mosel) can be as delicate and light on it’s feet as a ballerina or be demanding, precise, intricate like Tango, dipped in honey, tropical fruit, and mineral. 🔥 🔥 🍷If you relish juicy ripe peaches and apricots, sweet fragrance of jasmine flowers, zesty lemon and lime, luscious honey, spicy ginger, or if you are like me, turning cartwheels in your mouth at the mere mention of acid, you are going to love Riesling. 🔥 🔥 🍷Great wines that exhibit balance, finesse, and a sense of place begin in the vineyard. They come from exceptional grapes grown in extraordinary terroir, and cared for by gifted winemakers. Hand harvesting is mandatory at @selbachoster , and typically involves several pickings, to hand select only the best quality fruit. Which means that in poor vintages, Selbach-Oster will choose to abstain from producing any wine or declassify to a lower Prädikat level, rather than succumb to juice that doesn’t meet their highest standards. That my dear friends is the quality hallmark of integrity and commitment. 🔥 🔥 🍷The brilliant collection of @selbachoster Rieslings are the epitome of clarity, balance, and breathtaking precision. Perhaps the driest, yet richer of their equally talented neighbors, Selbach Oster Rieslings are honest wines, shimmering with ravishing fruit, laced with energetic acidity, lingering herbal-mineral nuances, food-friendly, versatile, wines that offers maximum flexibility from trocken (bone dry) to lusciously decadent. Throw in just about any cuisine in the world, its versatility is boundless.

Food & Wine. Decide which is Soloist, which the Accompanist. - Michael Broadbent. 🔥 🔥 🍷What would you call when both food and wine are in perfect symphony, where both not only compliment but elevate each other to higher heights? 🔥 🔥 🍷Our recent wine dinner at @beardfoundation award winning Chef Michael Mina039;s contemporary steakhouse @bourbonsteakmia aptly located at the luxurious @jwmarriottmiami was pure MAGIC! 🔥 🔥 🍷1st course: Jamon Iberico + @donmelchorwine 1987 = Pure JOY! 🔥 🔥 🍷2nd course: Michael Mina039;s classic steak tartare + @donmelchorwine 1995 = solidifies why wine belongs on the dinner table. 🔥 🔥 🍷3rd course: Last of season corn risotto with mushrooms & truffles + @donmelchorwine 2008 & 2015 = completing each other with earthy seduction, bravo!! 🔥 🔥 🍷4th course: Prime Angus Rib Cap & Hudson Valley Foei + @donmelchorwine 2017 = cooked to perfection steak & a young wine that expresses itself with sheer elegance and fruit. 🔥 🔥 🍷 Chocolate Opera Cake. #indianwinegoddess #eatmedrinkme #eatlikerashmi #drinkwithrashmi #wineambassador #WineWriter
The 039;Magic039; of Wine - one sip can transport you to exotic landscapes, hidden lands. And with the best wines, you can taste History. 🍷 🍷 🔥And history was made when we tasted 30 vintages of the 039;First Wine039; of Chile @donmelchorwine by the founding father of Chilean wine @conchaytoro (making wines since 1883) with Winemaker/Technical Director Enrique Tirado. 🍷 🍷 🔥As a wine writer and educator the most popular question we are asked is 039;whats your favorite wine?039;. Well Today and inarguably the TOP 10 wines of 2019 goes to Don Melchor 1987. the 1987 has evolved to deliver pure joy. A 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, the balance of fruit & earth, silky soft tannins layered with savory herbs, tobacco, coffee, walnuts. An elegance & seduction that show only in the best of wines - we give it 💯 🍷 🍷 🔥Add the culinary prowess of Michael Mina039;s @bourbonsteakmia it is an evening etched in our hearts for years to come. 🍷 🍷 🔥Deepest gratitude to @gregoryandvine for including us in this epic evening!
From the wallet-friendly wines to the estates flagship gems, @saget_la_perriere entire portfolio carpeted along the meandering river Loire - Pouilly sur Loire to Sancerre, Chinon, Vouvray, & Anjou solidifies the philosophy that wine belongs on the table and should be accessible to all without compromising high quality. ✨ ✨ 🍷And the best part of all - even with all it039;s diversity of Terroir and different grapes (Sauvignon Blanc, Chenin Blanc, Pinot Noir, Cabernet Franc) - each wine was a pure expression of it039;s fruit and all of them were bound by an underlying signature of minerality that screamed 039;Loire039;. Bravo 💯❤️❤️ ✨ ✨ 🙏 Stay tuned for our detailed report on the wonderful and exciting wines meticulously crafted by the Saget Family. 🙏 to @jeankreilly for sharing these beauties with us.

We had the most incredible time dancing & drinking thru #oktoberfest last year. Add it to your TO DO list friends, u can thank me later 😁🙏🍻🍻
‘Climat’ is a term used in Burgundy for a single-vineyard site. To understand the way climat is used, I think it helps to understand terroir first. Terroir is a French term that translates loosely into ‘sense of place’, suggesting how the the cumulative effect of soil, slope, orientation, climate, fog, sunlight hours, etc shape a wine’s characteristics. Given that terroir refers to this concept, then climat refers to an actual site that is inimitable because of its geographic characteristics or terroir. 💯 💯 🍷And Oregon, my dear friends is precisely that – incomparable, swaggering it’s own signature soul. 💯 💯 🍷Congratulations to Oregon and it039;s wineries for making the top 100 wineries of 2019 by @wineandspirits @brookswinery @bethelheightsvineyard @bigtablefarm @bergstromwines @walterscottwines
If @winesofaustralia can hike 10,000+ miles to showcase the bounties of their incredibly diverse country, the least we can do is travel the mere 500 miles from Orlando to Miami to support the Australian movement solidifying Australia039;s pedestal on the world wine map. ✨ ✨ ✨ 🍷 I have to confess oak doesn039;t excite me or my palate.As much as I understand how vital oak is to the structure of a wine (anthocyanin bonding, stabilisation, alcohol integration), I want to taste fresh fruit, acid, savory herbs, nuances of a well-nurtured healthy vine. Period. ✨ ✨ 🍷Bravo to the winemakers who showed restraint (less new barrels) and had the courage to not only show bright red/black fruit of Australian Syrah/Shiraz, but balance it with lip-smacking acidity, lower abv w/o compromising the freshness, & depth of fruit.✨ ✨ ✨ 🍷From an eye opening Masterclass showcasing the Terroir+driven nuances of sexy Syrah to exciting renditions of Chardonnay, Riesling, Moscato, Viogneir, Cabernet Sauvignon & Cabernet Franc - there is no better time than today to initiate your immersion into Australia & it039;s Wines. Stay tuned for our detailed post on the wonderful wines of Australia.
Grenache in France, Garnacha in Spain, Cannaou in Italy - cheers to #grenacheday friends! 🥂 ✨ 🍷Red grape that shimmers with red fruits like strawberries & cherries, sweet spices, & soft ripe tannins - Grenache is a versatile grape that produces delicate roses, dry spicy wines, to sweet fortified versions. ✨ ✨ 🍷It does extremely well in dry, hot climates producing high quality wines such as @palawines the benchmark producer from the island of Sardinia in Italy. Available in #newyork & #Florida thanks to @banvillewine & @niko.raia ✨ ✨ 🍷The fiori - 100% Cannaou (indigenous name for Grenache in Sardinia) - burst in our glass with bright red fruit, savory herbs, light body. Add some chill to the bottle, it039;s an ideal apertivo wine for warm sunny days in our sunshine state - Florida. ✨ ✨ 🍷The Reserva - a serious wine that needs time and bbq to unravel it039;s complex character - black cherries, spices, leather, & licorice. Truly a blockbuster wine! ✨ ✨ 🙏 We were so impressed with the freshness of fruit (especially since Grenache can easily oxidise) balanced by bright juicy acidity and the not in your face alcohol. Bravo to thoughtful winemaking skills while maintaining Grenache039;s beautiful fruit character & spice. ✨ 🍷How are you enjoying #grenache today? . . . #wineoftheday #winemaker #winetravel #wineblog #drinkwithrashmi #foodandwine

You win some you loose some. . . We were so looking forward to experiencing the award winning offerings of @cosmenyc sadly in our case, the mole (quintessential staplw of mexican cuisine) , our all time fav sauce in the world left us disheartened as it was burnt, rendering bitter after taste. The reason we know that is cause I make it too and their is fine line bet. Roasting Chiles vs burning them which ruins the sauce w bitterness.

" Mexico. Our brother from another mother. A country, with whom, like it or not, we are inexorably, deeply involved, in a close but often uncomfortable embrace. Look at it. It’s beautiful. It has some of the most ravishingly beautiful beaches on earth. Mountains, desert, jungle. Beautiful colonial architecture, a tragic, elegant, violent, ludicrous, heroic, lamentable, heartbreaking history.” - Anthony Bourdain. ✨ ✨ 🇲🇽 From the largest city in Mexico - Mexico City we travel to United States largest city - NYC with Mexican food still haunting our dreams. Perhaps a dinner date with world039;s best female chef - Daniela Soto-Innes of @cosmenyc might be the next best thing to Mexican cuisine outside of Mexico?

Corn (Zea Mays) aka Maize - the gift that keeps on giving! . . 🌽 From ethanol fuel, cornstarch, grain alcohol (whiskey/bourbon), cow feeds to countless delicious dishes such as grilled corn, enchiladas, tacos, burritos, soups, tamales, tacos, tlacoyos, it039;s hard to exemplify the importance of CORN in our daily lives. . . 🌽 Once grown by the Aztecs, Mayans, & Incas, domesticated around 10,000 yrs ago, today it is the most important crop in the United States, with 80 million acres of land planted to corn. . . 🌽 The common varieties include Dent Corn (used for ethanol fuel, livestock feed, sweeteners). Flint corn (used for cornmeal, hominy, flour). Sweet Corn aka Baby Corn. Popcorn aka Flint Corn (no description necessary). Heirloom Corn. Corn Nuts aka Peruvian Choclo great for snacking. . . 🌽Our favorite ways to enjoy corn on our recent trip to Mexico City was freshly charcoal grilled corn slathered with lime & chili powder from a street vendor, airy tamales stuffed with zucchini flowers at @rest_quintonil & the silkiest ever corn & bean soup at @lagrutamx
