Odd Lot Chardonnay and Scotto Family Cellars 2007 Old Vine Zinfandel

It was great to have the Bryersantís Gang over Saturday night.  It was a chance to get together and talk about new happenings in our lives, eat homemade pizza, and of course partake in some wine tasting.  This was different from most of our wine tasting get togethers due to the lack of Livermore wines […]

Sweet Sunset Red Chocolate

So here it is! Sweet Sunset Red Chocolate. The name alone! That’s right, red wine with chocolate flavoring. Kinda wild and crazy right?? YES! The bottle says, “Turn every setting sun into a sweet sunset rich, dark chocolate flavors make this a unique red wine with just the right combination of sweet fruit, mouth filing […]

Stanford Sierra Camp and Rodney Strong 2007 Cabernet!

So here I am at Stanford Sierra Camp Fallen Leaf Lake near Tahoe.  Every year around October the company that I work at sends their sales representatives to a retreat for a few days of learning, bonding and well, laughing.  Have you ever seen Fallen Leaf Lake?  Simply awesome, the views are incredible.   Today […]

Tamás Estates Zinfandel Riserva!

Celebrating my birthday in Monterey has been the best! Especially with the other members of the Bryersantís Family and long time friend “Butter” who frequents our website often. Dinner at the Chart House was unreal. A perfect dinning experience. Livermore Wines to choose from, seared sea scallops, unlimited salad bar, chocolate lava cake […]

Cuda Ridge Cabernet and Birthday Fun

The Bryersantís gang is down in Monterey right now at the Chart House celebrating Carl’s birthday. It’s been a great day of hanging out with the gang in Carmel and Monterey eating good food and of course visiting the tasting rooms.

Monterey boasts many great wines, but for this occasion we needed […]

Memorial Park

Sitting below the majestic redwood trees just off the California coast, I was reminded of how after years of patience, something as small as a seed can grow to the height of a redwood. That idea definitely provided me with a bit of motivation and peace as Bryersantis, in its infancy, tries to steadily grow. […]

Wine and Camping

Last year a tradition was born with the mobile wine rack. Today the cars are packed and it’s time to head to the campground for our annual camping trip to Memorial Park. The rack is packed and so are a variety of fantastic Livermore wines. I cant wait to get there. Stay tuned. There is […]

Harris Tesla

The 2005 Harris Tesla Cab was tasted tonight at our Bryersantis Livermore Valley wine review meeting. We decanted the bottle and served it with ground turkey tacos (I know it’s not the best pairing, but we were all in the mood for Mexican food). It’s a smooth wine and became smoother the longer it was […]

A Wine Tour For Friends

What could I say when a good friend I hadn’t seen in way too long asked me if I’d take her wine tasting in Livermore???  I responded with a, “HECK YA!”  I was thrilled with this opportunity to show my friends the best of Livermore.  I quickly realized that showing all Livermore has to offer […]
