Return of the Blog – New Approach, Backlogged Reviews, and More.

First and foremost, our sincerest apologies about our absence during the last year. We have been fortunate to have a large following over the past several years that has brought in over 100,000+ readers. We want to thank all of you! We have expanded beyond Virginia, touching many places in the United States and even spun off a travel blog to cover our International journeys. So where do we go from here? Many readers have submitted suggestions of a more digital approach. Monthly review pieces versus daily postings, video production, food pairings, wine country itineraries and even a podcast.

I write you all to say: we have PLENTY of reviews to be released over the coming weeks, and the first in an ongoing series of podcast episodes that will air monthly. The podcasts will cover insights and interviews with winemakers, brewmasters, vertical and blind tasting events, restaurant reviews across the country, chef interviews, and much, much more. The approach is simple; we don’t want to be a Wine Spectator style blog, but more of an average Joe source of information pertaining to the wine, beer, alcohol and restaurant industries.

More details and subscription links will be available in coming weeks, and I will be sure to notify all of you, our loyal readers, via social media of these details as they are released.

Again, thank you for your loyalty, and we look forward to breathing new life into the Virginia Pour House!

Out of Town: A Day Exploring Temecula’s Wine Country

With iPods loaded with crazy throwback tunes, playlists roaring and near perfect weather, my friends and I hit the open road on our way through the hills to Temecula. What was I expecting upon arriving? To be honest, I had no idea. I had been to Stone Brewing Company the previous year so the scenery I was looking for was similar to that. Desert hillsides lined with sparse greenery, palm trees and a lot of rocky soil. As we approached the "Welcome to Temecula" sign, we drove past gorgeous housing communities and neighborhoods, which had me scratching my head. Okay... so, where is wine country? [...]


  1. Hi Anthony
    This is my first visit to your blog and I must say BRAVO, You have taken the work out of finding good wine, i am always wanting to try new wine but I am not an expert and rely heavily on recommendations. I must say, after perusing your blog for a opulent hours I want to say you had me at “ As it rounds out with tangy tannins that take off mid to back palate, creamy, buttery overtones cloaking the cornucopia of dark fruit lead to a beautiful finish with oak dominance and hints of pepper and subtle leather. DRINKING PERFECTLY right now.”
    Well done
