Our mission is to make wine fun. Not that it isn’t already…but how many times have you picked up a bottle and wondered if you’d like it or how it was made, or even who made it? Burning questions, we know.
With more wines than ever are being produced, why not make a more educated decision on what you’ll drink with dinner tonight and how your choice can ultimately affect the wine industry and our world? We really don’t want you to throw good money away on bad wine.
So we drink a lot of wine! Much of it from Oregon and Washington but also some from California, British Columbia and other regions in Canada as well as Baja Mexico! However, we are curious wine drinkers and love tasting wines so you will find wine tasting notes from all over the world. And did we mention that we love spirits too?

The International Pinot noir Celebration (IPNC) held during the last weekend in July in McMinnville, pays tribute to Oregon’s most revered grape. The participating wineries are chosen after a panel of judges taste all wine submissions blind. This prevents any preconceived biases or pa
