    Mother's Day Wine Gift Ideas + My Current Obsessions

    Mother's Day Wine Gift Ideas + My Current Obsessions

    Happy Mexican Mother's Day! Today I just sit down with some good wine and have a chatty conversation about a lot of great products to buy and that I am into at the moment. I start with some Mothers' Day gift ideas for wine lovers, and end it off with a couple of things that I am currently obsessed with. These range from food, beauty to tv shows. If you feel the same way I do about any of these things I love to hear your thoughts on them! I honestly heard podcasts just talk about their current favorites and thought it was a great idea to hopefully influence someone into my bad shopping habits LOL

    California Wine Tour Series Ep 2: Los Angeles County

    California Wine Tour Series Ep 2: Los Angeles County

    This week’s episode is part 2 of my California Wine Region Series! Today I am covering Los Angeles County, my home and birthplace. Who knew Los Angeles County was considered a major wine region? But did you know it is made up of 6 AVAs? That’s how big LA county is. LA is also big on natural and organic ingredients, which means that they are popular for organic wines and kick-starting an orange wine fad. But honestly, I wanted to focus on the actual winery experience and where winemakers grow their wines in a location as big as LA. I will be focusing on the west and east sides of LA county: Malibu and Antelope Valley. I cover a brief history of how they became AVAs, their climate that makes it perfect to grow grapes, and I end off the episode with specific underrated wineries recommendations for your next LA funday. This episode is perfect if you live in LA County and are curious to try wines from places other than wine bars to get the true vineyard experience without driving out too far (because let’s be real, LA is full of wine bars and wine shops without the authentic winery vibe).

    Being a WOC in the Wine Industry (w/ Julie Albin, DipWSET)

    Happy Wine Wednesday! Today I have a chat with Julie Albin, who is a certified WSET consultant and level 1 wine educator. We sat down and had a conversation about her experience starting out with wine education and obtaining her level 4 wine and spirits certification, the obstacles of being a women of color in the wine industry, and she gives tips on how to taste wine like a pro. Honestly it was so much fun chatting with Julie and I hope you learn a thing or two about wine or maybe even get inspired to take your wine passion to the next level and get certified!
