I guess it’s no surprise that today is National Champagne Day. According to WalletHub and International Business Times, an average of 360 million glasses of bubbly is drunk today and 25% of all champagne/sparkling wines are sold between Christmas and New Years (sidenote: these numbers are from the early 2010s but research is very scarce … Continue reading The Best Vinegar I Ever Drank

As I might have mentioned a time or thirty, I used to work at a wine shop … Continue reading Go Texan.
