  • Whoooaaaaa! This babys vintage is correct from 1986 This is
    9 months ago by mariolunasomm Whoooaaaaa! This baby’s vintage is correct from 1986.

    9 months ago by mariolunasomm $273,000: That’s how much wine sales that we have brought in just from  @bodegasontanon  since the end of 2015. For my wine program, this is THE most important wine portfolio at Jaleo Las Vegas. We are lucky to represent their craft with wines like the Clarete Rosado, Vetiver Viura, the 2005 Reserva and Gran Reserva, Mitologica, and the fun sweet, dessert Marco Fabio. Cheers!

Spicy Chicken Fingers Wine Pairing

French Fries

Pairing Wendy’s French Fries

I remember my first food and wine pairing.  It was figuring out how to pair Rally’s drive-thru fries with sparkling wine.  I just remember thinking, “Dude, I am the @#$%!” (I was 25 at the time – don’t judge me yet, it gets worse).  The first time I actually showcased a pairing like this to…
