Taking life one sip at a time


Chateauneuf du PapeChâteauneuf-du-Pape is the historic and beautiful wine region of France’s Southern Rhone Valley. It is rich in history and the wines that it produces can be among the very best in France and the world. Typically, it is a region known to produce wines that are bold and full-bodied, but they also make wines of great finesse. Last year, we were lucky enough to tour and taste at Chateau de la Font du Loup, one of the top producers of the more elegant style CDP wines.

Winemaker Rollin Soles

AdVINEtures has been fortunate enough to meet some of the world’s truly great winemakers. And while many people equate wine with a certain amount of snobbishness, our experience is that generally winemakers view themselves first as farmers and are among the most down to earth people you will ever meet. And you’ll be hard pressed to find a winemaker less pretentious then Rollin Soles of ROCO Winery.

Napa Wine“The richness of life…the textural thread that weaves through every heart, past present and future, fine and illusive, but when the light and my inner calm is just so, I can see and taste droplets of love travelling along the tapestry of human spirit. Imagine drinking from the cup of life!” – Greg Brown, Winemaker, Dreamer, Grape Guardian, Yoga Dude. So says the back of the bottle of the 2007 T-Vine Zinfandel that we shared recently.

Cork Washington Wine

The cork from the 2007 QED

“Rasa” is a Sanskrit word meaning the essence of something that conjures up a feeling or emotion. For Rasa Vineyards, the name certainly fits their wines which aim to capture the essence of the soil from where they are from, and at a quality level that is absolutely capable of evoking pure joy to a wine enthusiast.

The tasting room at Leonetti Cellar

Leonetti Cellar, located in Washington’s Walla Walla Valley AVA, makes some of the most collected, sought-after, recherché, and praised wines in America. The term “cult winery” seems to be a uniquely American term (we don’t know of any Bordeaux or Burgundy cult wineries) that refers to wineries whose wines are available only via mailing list and have received huge scores and praise from the wine press at large.
