Meet Terre Mag This Weekend At #FOODBOOKFAIR2017

It’s been many months in the works–and it all started at that damn wine bar, Wildair, where I keep going back, again and again, unable to resist the funky wines, the fried shrimp dish, the raucous tattooed kitchen staff.

A New Appellation, Ivy Mix Profile

My last two Eater articles have been so nerdy. And I fear it’s just the beginning. First, I wrote about the question: Should natural wine become an “official” category?

Wine For Netflix, Mezcal, Breaking Wine “Rules”

Is anyone else tired of those sponsored Twitter ads, for the “Netflix of wine,” showing a woman nursing an oversized glass of red? Well, ignore the “Netflix of wine,” because I think we need wine for Netflix. Yes, I know–like me, you’ve also begun binge-watching House of Cards Season 4!

Sake School And 10 Things All Women Should Know About Wine

I was determined to make 2016 the year I branched out from wine, and started learning about other delicious beverages that are equally as complex and interesting: sake, beer, mezcal, Scotch, coffee, and so on. So, I dove right in with a primer on sake, for Vine Pair. The piece was really fun to work on,… Continue reading Sake School And 10 Things All Women Should Know About Wine
