What I like about wine:

I love the fact that wine blends history, biology, chemistry, marketing and pleasure into a compact bottle. As the director of Education & Content for Wine.com, I love to teach wine & share wine - there is always something new to learn.

    Domaine Thomas St. Veran 2014
    $19.99
    Style: Light & Crisp
    absolutely fantastic for the price. This is not for lovers of the big, buttery, oaky Chardonnay, but more for those who can't do without a serious mineral backbone in their wine. Bright acidity, lots of citrus and yet, that creamy texture that you want in a Chardonnay - fairly lean, but crisp and delicious.

    Style: Rich & Creamy
    phenomenal. That perfect burgundian balance in play, rich texture but not heavy. Minerality shines through, with citrus and hazelnut notes. Would drink every night if I could.

    Casa do Valle Vinho Verde Branco Grande Escolha 2014
    $14.99
    Style: Fruity & Smooth
    wow. This wine blew me away. Very different from the typical Vinho Verde with a slight fizz and off-dry notes, this is anything but simple. Aromas of stone fruit and mineral-driven chalk notes, the palate is crisp and refreshing, with a balance of acidity and a creamy texture. For those who love Albarino, Chablis or Bordeaux Blanc... this is a wine to try!
