You all know us well enough to know how much we love food. One of our favorite things to do together is to try out new recipes and explore new styles of cooking (remind us to invite you over when we’ve got the smoker going or are working on a new batch of ramen broth!). And a night of cooking wouldn’t be complete without a great bottle of wine! We have a few wines we love, but really want to explore new varieties, flavors, and regions -- that’s where you come in!
We would love your help building our wine collection. We’ve put together a few notes below about our go-to bottles, flavors we enjoy, and what we tend to stay away from to give you a little bit of direction. We’ve also included links to wine websites with great selections. Whether it’s something to open just because it’s Tuesday or a bottle to save for a special occasion, we would love to be introduced to wines that you love. And hopefully have you over to share a glass or two!Thank you so much for sharing your favorite wines with us!
