Vine to Wine
In 2002 I met a friend that was a wine expert. I would have never guessed that chance meeting would lead me to a passion for wine. I find it exciting to discover the different grape growing techniques from all over the world, the growers whose families may have ties to their land for hundreds of years, or perhaps only a couple of generations. I never expected to hear the historical stories tied to the wine, or the depth of the passion that goes into the final product. Now wine is like a song for me. In the same way a song can bring me to another time or place, the sip of wine can bring me to France, or Australia. The possibilities are endless. I look forward to sharing new discoveries and adventures with you. Where it will lead is unknown, and the unknown is what makes life exciting!

December Drink Spotlight
GODIVA® Peppermint Stick Martini
'Tis the season for... well, so many things! One of our favorite things is chocolate. One of the most well known chocolates? Godiva. It may not be a year round indulgence, but this month we will splurge a bit. If you're a fan of dark chocolate and peppermint, try this Peppermint Stick Martini. It's tasty and festive! We would say, "You're guests will love it!" But that implies we're encouraging you to share.
1OZ GODIVA® Dark Chocolate Liqueur
1OZ Crème de Menthe
Garnish a martini glass with crushed candy cane and chill. Shake with ice and strain into chilled martini glass.
"If you're looking to increase your knowledge of the world of wine taking a class (or 3) with Marcia Mongeau is a must! She presents an array of choices within different price points and guides you through discovering what appeals to your taste buds as well as your pocketbook. She provides helpful pockets guides you can use in the future when shopping for your own wines or for when ordering from your favorite restaurant. She actually helped me find several red wines that I enjoy!"
