Wine Not? My journey to get a grasp on the grape

Hannah Cole, The Lady Pearly, Sur Le Vin blog, Washington DC, WineA mason jar, a coffee mug, a commemorative plastic cup with the poster of the latest musical I watched - these are all the things I’ve drunk wine out of before. Notice the apparent absence of a wine glass. I’ve got to let you know... I own wine glasses. I own quite a few, actually. But my usage of appropriate glassware is far from consistent. My hand grabs the first thing I see in the cabinet when I’m ready to pour some wine... which totally works for me. Cue one of my favorite mottos - Wine not?

My name is Hannah, and I’m inviting you to join me on a journey where I get to learn more about wine. I’m certainly no sommelier, but I know the difference between a Merlot and a Pinot Noir. Although my go-to sipper, like many recently turned 21-year old women, is a sweet pink moscato, my favorite wine is a smooth cabernet sauvignon (and yes, I definitely looked up how to spell sauvignon).

My journey to learn about wine has really just begun. I invite you to join me as I attempt to expand my knowledge of wine, procure wine-trivia to impress my friends over dinner, and figure out what the heck to do with a restaurant wine-list.

Breaking The Rules, One Pinot Nero Blanco at a Time

April 24, 2019

Life is full of old school rules that quite frankly ought to be broken. Is the phrase “don’t wear white after Labor Day” ringing any bells? Well, I’ve got a particular rule in question that really grinds my gears. We’ve all heard time and time again that steak should only be accompanied by a red wine. While I’m not exactly a consistent rule-breaker, when it comes to something like this I’m totally game.

A Perfect Purr-secco

April 17, 2019

Maybe it was the meow-ing of her cats that brought us the realization that this prosecco was more aptly dubbed a Purr-secco. From then on, we couldn’t stop our giggling and knew we had to drink our wine with that night’s dinner.
