Loved reliving my time in college studying Spanish #Art History in Sevilla through this exhibit at the @sandiegomuseumofart. Works by Spanish masters and other artists living in Spain and throughout the Spanish “Golden Age” Colonial Empire. #BalboaPark #SanDiegoMuseumofArt #arthistory #elgreco #velasquez #ribera #murillo #zurburan #sandiego

#Grapefruit! My go-to juice for clear spirits. High acidity & relatively low sweetness, with subtle bitterness. If you think about it, that’s what most other cocktails aim for - via separate components. Definitely sounds sexier in French. #pamplemousse 🍊#whyisthatturtlegivingmethebird 🐢 🐥

#Snacktime brought to you by #PetiteBasque, salty-coconut-roasted almonds, & 28 year old #VernacciadiOristano (surprised by the number of times that hashtag has been used). In my grandmothers antique glassware. Special stuff, almost Amontillado-like. #treatyoself #drinkthewine #flor

Kicked off a weekend full of friends, fun, and copious amounts of Pork products with an Iberico-fat-washed Manhattan-ey variation from @mle_sea94 at @herbandwood . And YES, those are #chicharrones.

“This is restaurant quality sauce, just letting you know...” As if everything that @bogoagogo cooks up isn’t ? #Steak & 2004 #saintestephe #Bordeaux #wine, a classic match.

I was in a #treatyoself mood so I drove up to @lejeuneetjolie in Carlsbad to see what all the fuss was about. An inventive cocktail list & refreshing beverage program, plus satisfying, surprising dishes that put a tweak on Nouvelle. Pictured here: Grenouilles 🐸 et Pouisson 🐔. Thanks for the hospitality!

Jumping Cholla (pronounced Choya!) @madisononpark. Like someone threw a pineapple and a jalapeño into a volcano and stuffed the smoke that puffed out into a pillow. 🍍 🌋 💨

Cheers to a successful Saturday night dinner collaboration! Not pictured: much more #wine, my soon-to-be-famous caprese boats, cheese galore, chocoflan, a delightfully green salad...and Eddie Murphy’s “Delirious”. 🤣 🥩 🍤 🍮 🥗 🍷 🥃

A different kind of #tenyearchallenge. Flipping through the pages this evening, I realized that this book was published ten years ago, when I had just turned 21. Several thoughts surfaced: 1) How little has changed- the Grand Marques of Champagne, the 1855 classification, the Judgement of Paris, the influence of wealthy old wine brands on worldwide wine production. 2) How MUCH has changed - Small growers in Champagne, the waning of Bordeaux’s influence among younger drinkers, interest in “Natural wine”, small-production wines from Beaujolais, French VdP, Italian IGT lesser known subregions and heritage American vineyards with avant-garde winemakers. 3) The presupposition that “you” can afford to taste all of the wines in this book, or that you have access to them in some way (I’ve tasted about 75% of these producers, but less than 10% of the actual bottlings, and less than 1% of the vintages...and thanks to my occupation I haven’t had to pay for access to many of those wines) 4) The insanity and magic of a great wine is such that most of the wines described in this book in 2008/09 are still not “ready” to drink in 2018/19!

Life is too short not to drink aged white #Burgundy with #Pickle Brined Chicken. Special thanks to @johnrlogan & @vinocarta for the ‘00 #Meursault leftovers from tasting group, and ‘05 #Chablis from the back corner of the retail fridge, respectively. And to @bogoagogo, as always, for the victuals. #cauliflower #collardgreens

👍 YEP. @_rach_face_ , the amazing woman who I have considered family for so long, asked me to be a part of the moment she and @brooksy37 make it official. Can’t wait! (Sorry, do you two have a hashtag yet?)

Speed tasting at @nik_urban_riesling in #Leiwen. The tasting room has samples of slate from each of the different #GrosseLage vineyards where they own land in the #Saar & #Mosel. I’ve always found Saar #Riesling to have a unique earthiness in comparison to the bright fruit of the Mosel. #WiltingerSchlangengraben #OckfenerBockstein #saarfeilser #leiwenerlaurentiuslay #mehringerblattenberg #PiesporterGoldtropfen

The difference between Grosslage (a large grouping of less-exciting or lower-quality vineyards) & Grosse Lage (a Grand Cru or top-quality site), demonstrated here by #PiesporterMichelsberg in the foreground, so flat it looks like a hedgerow, and #PiesporterGoldtropfen on the ridiculously steep hillside across the #Mosel. #grosslage #grosselage #riesling #vdp #themoreyouknow
