  • Life is all about the moments that you share withhellip
    7 days ago by mariolunasomm Life is all about the moments that you share with your loved ones. This is Alfred Gratien Champagne, I first tasted this wine when I met my future wife. It was three years ago at the Wine Spectator Grand Tour Las Vegas. We looked at each other while savoring the moment and we thought, "This is perfect!" Well... I meant her. Please don't forget those moments!  #wine   #winetasting   #winelovers   #winery   #wino   #winestagram   #instawine   #winetime   #winegram   #rose   #sparkling   #bubbles   #winespectator   #show   #moment   #married   #shespregnant   #marriedlife   #wife   #husband   #drink   #toast   #cheers   #foodie   #chef

    1 week ago by mariolunasomm Blanc de Noirs in Champagne uses red grapes like pinot noir and pinot meunier (men-yay) in their blend. I prefer the blanc de noir style with its creamy mouth feel, flavors of tart and ripe pear, brioche, and subtle citrus. These flavors are not as acidic and mineral driven as the blanc de blanc, which are 100% Chardonnays. The best example of a Blanc de Noir was my favorite from the Wine Spectator Grand Tour in the Mirage Casino called Besserat. This wine was perfection and can be enjoyed for any occaision!

    1 week ago by mariolunasomm It's Bubbles Week at MarioLunaSomm and I have 5 of my favorites. Up first, this is Raventos De Nit Rose Conca. This is a blend of Macabeo, Xarel-lo, and Parellada varietals are blended together and then red wine is added in the finish made in the Cava region. That red wine softens the sharp acidity and added fruit and body weight. This is the perfect wine to go with every type of food. I hope you get the opportunity to try this special wine in spanish tapas restaurants or at www.raventos.com!  #wine   #winetasting   #winelovers   #spain   #cava   #rose   #pink   #winestagram   #instawine …

    2 weeks ago by mariolunasomm Mother's Day is this weekend and it's time to take her out to eat. Unfortunately, so will everyone else. To help you cope with the extremely long wait this Sunday, I created a food and wine pairing guide for my favorite neighborhood restaurant: The Cheesecake Factory! Check out my latest blog at www.mariolunasomm.com for all of my selections, including a Merlot paired with the Steak Diane's medallions, mushrooms, and peppercorns.  #wine   #winery   #winetime   #winetasting   #winelovers   #winenot   #winestagram   #instawine   #cheesecake   #cheesecakefactory   #dinner   #lunch   #brunch   #mother   #mom   #mommy   #chef   #cook   #foodie   #redwine   #whitewine   #steak   #pasta   #italian   #spicy 
  • Of the 5 FirstGrowth Bordeauxs that are deemed The greatesthellip
    3 weeks ago by mariolunasomm Of the 5 First-Growth Bordeauxs that are deemed "The greatest red wines of France", it's only right to finish this week's education with the oldest aged wine. This is the 1996 Chateau Lafite Rothschild, the driest and least fruit-forward of any of the 5 wines showcased this week. Only 35% of the grapes are qualified to be part of the Cabernet Sauvignon blend. Once bottled, this wine can aged for up to 50 years with its strong tannic structure. I need to decant the wine and let rest 2 hours after opening.  #wine   #winery   #winetime   #winegram   #winenot   #winestagram   #instawine   #winewriter …
