Sips from Delightful Grapes {Updated with Luna Winery Discount Code}


Wines - sips-1

I love wine. I really really do.

Although, I must admit it has been an acquired taste. 15 years ago it was not my thing, I preferred a hearty beer. My drink of choice was a Gordon Biersch Blonde Bock. Two please.

Then while on vacation in Hawaii, a Sommelier introduced me to a Pinot Grigio from Luna Winery. I discovered that night what I had been missing all these drinking years; fine wine. I am now proud to say I prefer wine. Especially wine from the grapes grown in the dirt near: Oak Knoll, Russian River Valley and my all time favorite Carneros Region. Yes, the dirt does make a difference.

So for the up coming Holidays if you need a {delightful} bottle of wine to celebrate with timeless friends, here are my recommendations.

Pictures above, from left to right:

  • Rombauer Vineyards’ Carneros Chardonnay $16
  • Sonoma-Cutrer Founders Reserve Chardonnay $23
  • River Road Russian River Valley Reserve Chardonnay $16
  • Francis Coppola Diamond Pinot Noir $20
  • Goldeneye Anderson Valley Pinot Noir $55
  • Trefethen Chardonnay Oak Knoll District of Napa Valley $30
  • Veuve Clicquot Brut Yellow Label $45
