Monogamy 2008 North Coast Cabernet Sauvignon

I know, wow, the name made ya look twice huh?  Don’t see that everyday!

What the bottle says, “You know you’ve experimented.  It’s a way to discover what you like….and what you don’t.  What makes you happy.  What satisfies your soul.  It’s how you know when you’ve found the one.  The one that makes you […]

No Corkscrew No Problem!!!

Have you ever been in the horrible position of having a wonderful bottle of your favorite wine, but no corkscrew to release that fruity goodness.  I just came across this YouTube video that provides a couple of alternatives to get you into that bottle.  The last tactic is my favorite.  Thanks to Howcast for this […]

Tuesday Tunes Protest

Livermore’s Tuesday Tunes used to be about coming downtown to enjoy the music, the food, and to let the kids have a good time running around and play with their friends. Some brought food from home while others enjoyed dining at the restaurants along First Street.

BoaVentura Syrah

Last month at Sanctuary: We brought a 2007 BoaVentura Syrah. Sanctuary charges $8 corkage fee, even for Livermore wines but Jenny claimed the BoaVentura was worth it.  It was.  Also enjoyed Karaoke with Eddy Tracy there and at Sapphire on Tuesdays. Hope to see you there next time.



Last weekend I had a couple hours to myself so, I decided to pay a visit to a winery I have heard a lot about, but have never been to.  I learned from Jenny that she received an email from BoaVentura de Caires winery, which alerted her that they would be open for tasting. […]
