In todays episode, Shelley and Phil walk and talk through some strategies of buying wine in discount stores like Grocery Outlet while they taste through three of those wines. Having tasted some pretty high end wine on our podcast recently, it’s time to see if some lower cost wines will make the grade. #HappyFriday! #ItsWineTime! #Cheersing #ItWasConanObrien #ImpatientLucie

The Social Web Wine Word of the Week – Minerality

Minerality is a tricky one to explain, but it refers to a group of non-fruit, non-herb, non-spice notes. Mineral notes can describe aroma or taste or both. Think of the taste of the sea that you get from crunchy sea salt, oysters or of licking wet stones and often a chalky texture to match.
