Argentinian Malbecs tend to be fruity, soft, juicy, herbal, and in my opinion, spicy. They make an excellent “winter red,” so it’s probably time to stock up before the days get shorter and the chill sets in.

Syrah/Shiraz is to wine grapes as George Clooney is to the entire world. Dark, handsome, popular and better with age. Need we say more?

Sometimes mutant genes result in wonderful things, the Pinot Blanc grape for instance. Get the facts about this wine 

Gewürztraminer, aside from being fun to say, is perhaps the most complicated of the wine grapes. Why?

Chenin blanc, just like your like your favorite LBD, is favorite because of its versatility. Flavors in chenin blanc can range from stone fruits and honey to floral notes, a characteristic of Chenin blanc that develops with age.

Barbera is a red Italian grape known for deep color, low tannins, and high acidity. Its high yield makes it historically known as a “peasant's wine,” since it is easily mass-produced.

If you’re still longing for a little outdoors before the cool of fall sends you scurrying for a nice knitted afghan quilt inside, hold onto a little bit of summer with a final cookout--grilled pizza. It’s way way way too fantastic to miss.

Sangiovese is the quintessential Italian red grape, with spicy strawberry flavors and a natural oakiness that comes out when aged in barrels. 

If your fascination with endlessly circling Minnesota's 10,000 lakes as your main source of summer fun is waning, it's time for a change. Here are some ideas to spice up the next week or two.

A lot of things get better with age: wine, cheese, leather, your favorite jeans. And, hopefully, WineTable. The past few months have seen quite a few updates on our website, and we’re excited to update you, our favorite wine community, on our progress.

Pinot gris or pinot grigio, what's the difference? 

Sometimes, I just get a hankering for curry. Stewed chunks of meat, simmering in a paste of spices, plenty of onion, garlic and hot pepper and served over fluffy rice—mmmmm, now that’s flavor-packed comfort food.

Get ready, garden parties, here comes Vigonier!

Last week saw the dawn of a new era for an 83-year-old piece of gastro-Americana: the relaunch of Hostess Twinkies. The new version of the classic snack is trimmer, sure, but still filled with that delectable cream and wrapped in the gooey, chewey, air-filled sponge cake, and of course it's perfect to pair with wine.

In Germany, where summer takes its sweet time heating up, Eva brings the flavors of sunshine into her kitchen with a chevre and sweet pepper salad. Try it for yourself!

It’s amazing what can come out of your produce drawer when you approach it with the attitude of NO FEAR. Here’s a salad that may not necessarily claim any particular cultural lineage, but nevertheless will imbue you with full zest for life.

Late last week, Microsoft announced it is revamping its structure to coalesce its teamwork and increase its collaboration between divisions. As any good wine drinker knows, wine is one of the best ways to inspire collaboration, so in honor of Microsoft, here are three of the best wine bars in the Redmond area. 

It's sometimes referred to as a gateway wine, meaning many wine drinkers take their first forays into wine with this berrylicious red. Even if you're well begun on your wine journey, zinfandel is a delight to sip.

Everyone knows that for coffee, Seattle is the place to be—from the original Starbucks to the home territory of Seattle’s Best to a plethora of independent shops—but where does one go for wine? We've got the answers.

A basket full of charcuterie is perfect for a romantic picnic or an afternoon getaway with the girlfriends. With a little planning, it can even be an urban escape in the middle of a city during a busy workday.
