Fall weather is upon us….and the red wine is flowing! This past weekend we were finally able to get together and sample some reds, courtesy of Pasternak Wine Imports. This time, however, we decided to put our hubbies to the test with a fun Wine Party tasting game. The results were some very different opinions […]

End-of-Summer Sale

Pinot Noir Wednesday
