I remember the times when visiting a cellar door to try wines and the person behind the counter would start with, “…our entry level wines.”  I have to say, I am not a fan of the words ‘entry level’.  It … Continue reading

2019 Mapleton Vineyard Riesling

Gospel music. Admittedly not my go to music genre. However, you can’t but appreciate how the whole church congregation gets involved, and it is easy to understand why. The songs are usually catchy, so upbeat and lively, and of course, … Continue reading
