Wandering on a constant search for a glass that is more than half full.

The Latest – Travel

Airport executive clubs are the worst

Airport executive clubs are the worst

I guess I just don't get it. Why is access to airport executive clubs so coveted, everyone think they are so great, and rush to them the second they arrive at the airport? You see them sneaking in with their black carry-on bags and laptop messengers, flashing their...

The Ins and Outs of Oak

Oak, to a winemaker, is like salt and pepper to the master chef. It’s not the main ingredient, but it matters more than you think. Used right, you get a product of exceptional flavor and quality. Used incorrectly and you are pretty sure you're switching to beer....

Pay by the pound – The only way to truly fix air travel

Let’s be blunt. Airlines should charge by the pound. Yeah, I said it. Pay by the pound is the only way to truly fix the airline industry. UPS does it. FedEx does it. DHL does it. They make money. Why not the airline industry? When it comes down to it, airline...

Twenty Four Hours in Travel Hell

6:00am (10:00pm DT or Denver Time) We wake up in the Aklesia B&B in the Colosseum district of Rome to the sound of the iPhone alarm going off on the side of the bed.  Snooze?  Nah.  Gotta get up, shower and hit the Metro station.  I reach in to my backpack to find the...

My new theory on the popularity of pro football

I have a new theory about professional football. I think the popularity of NFL football is now being completely supported by the gambling trends of weekly and yearly Fantasy Football leagues. It's a new theory, and I'm just developing it now, but it feel right....

Ultimate French Rosés and Whites

For me, summer reminds me of a time when cool, light, crisp wines keep me reminiscing about trips to the South of France. I still drink some reds, but French whites and rosés are what I prefer when it gets hot out and my meals drift toward more vegetables and seafood....

If you can’t be with the wine you love, honey, love the wine you’re with.

Maybe it’s a Stephen Stills thing. You know the song, right? “If you can’t be with the wine you love honey, love the wine you’re with...love the wine you’re with.” That is how that song goes, isn’t it? Well, it should. Keep that song in the front of your mind as you...

24 Hours Of Food And Wine In Montepulciano

Talking about Montepulciano can be a bit confusing. Are we talking about the town, or the grape? Aren’t they the same? No. Montepulciano, the town, is a glorious Renaissance hill town in Tuscany where they have beautiful views, good food, and make a lot of wine...

Travel Tips – Save yourself some pain and travel light

Ah, the travel season is upon us once again. For some reason (probably related to something dumb, like jobs and kids and school) we tend to take off to faraway lands and exotic destinations just when the weather here turns from blustery to absolutely beautiful. Vive...

Minimalists’ guide to collecting wine

Minimalists’ guide to collecting wine

Sorry, but for a post about minimalism, this is going to be surprisingly long… I’ve been working on this minimalism thing for a while now. You know, simplify – own less and make sure your possessions don’t own you? It seemed easy and exciting at first, and has been a...

Paris Café Culture

Paris Café Culture

A not-so wise man once said, “Life moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop to look around for a while, you could miss it.” Nowhere is that advice more needed than here in America. Nowhere is that advice more honored than in Paris. Originally posted on WineGeographic.com...

Finally a real wine rating system

Finally a real wine rating system

The thing I hate most about wine ratings is the thing that makes them what they are. Wine ratings are subjective. They are one person’s judgement of quality and don’t take into account what really matters – how much you drink, what you can afford, when to drink them,...
