The Pros of Prosecco

The Pros of Prosecco

The “pro” in Prosecco might just mean that this reasonably priced Italian charmer is one to consider if Champagne—the real stuff—is not in your budget. If you like champagne but don't appreciate the price tag, I'd like to suggest a high quality Prosecco. While true...

Among the offerings at a recent Rhone tasting in SF, I found several bottles to share with readers, and I want to start with a red that's geared to summer and that can be sipped alone or put beside food. This marvel of versatility and panache is the 2013 Seven Oxen...

Epicurean Puerto Vallarta

Epicurean Puerto Vallarta

Astonishing storefronts and restaurants march up and down the Malecón, but my eyes gravitate to the art spectacles framed by the Pacific.  As we meander the mile-long esplanade, from “La Nostalgia” (Nostalgia) to “La Rotunda del Mar” (the Roundabout of the Sea) to the...

Prowess in Pittsburgh

Prowess in Pittsburgh
