I’ve been trotting the globe in pursuit of wine, food and travel stories for over 13 years. From the vineyards of New Zealand to the press houses of Champagne, I’ve met a world of fascinating people who have stories to share. In between adventures I review restaurants for The Atlantan and contribute to several global and national outlets including: USA Today, Decanter, Men’s Book and TravelChannel.com. I've also co-authored a travel guide (The Everything Guide to Ireland), edited a city guide for Atlanta (Northstar Media) and worked as a Senior Editor at The Wine Report. I was recently awarded the MAGS Association Magnolia Award for excellence in writing and editing and currently hold a Wine and Spirits Education Trust Intermediate Certificate.

When debating over which wines to serve for this Thanksgiving dinner, consider offerings from across the USA and the globe.  Thanksgiving is a meal of many flavors—from Aunt Edna’s Jell-O mold to cousin Otis’ spicy sausage stuffing—and it becomes almost impossible to find a wine that plays well with everything. Serve a selection this year, rather than committing to just one red and one white.  I suggest opening the bottles, lining them up on the counter and encouraging guests to self-serve. I typically write a note or two for each bottle explaining what it pairs best with and let guests decide what suits them best.

Late Harvest Chenin Blanc (dessert Wine) India

Today is the fourth annual International Tempranillo Day, yet another in a tedious string of manufactured marketing “holidays” made up by various food industry groups to promote their foods. Not a week goes by where some public relations person doesn’t pitch me on a ridiculous self-proclaimed food holiday, from the general, like National Burger Day, to the very specific as in National Green Chile Cheeseburger Day. I usually just hit delete, but not this time.

Indian Cabernet Shiraz

Why? Because while no one needs an excuse to eat another burger, we could all use a little more tempranillo in our lives, and the occasion reminded me that I have been meaning to write about the proliferation of the grape in Texas, whose climate seems to suit the variety, indigenous to Spain where it is the signature grape. France has chardonnay, the backbone of both champagne and white burgundy, Italy has sangiovese, which makes chianti, Argentina has its malbec and Napa excels at cabernet sauvignon. Spain has tempranillo, the grape behind both rioja, one of the world’s great labels, and the superb wines of the Ribera del Duero. If you love Spanish wines, you already know tempranillo.

The Skinner family, headed by Mike and Carey, are all involved in the winery in some manner, creating sophisticated wines in the rural Sierra. Patterned after the vintages of southern France, this wine comprises estate-grown syrah and grenache, and mourvedre from several El Dorado vineyards.

THE WINERY >> Scottish miner James Skinner was among the first to establish a winery and distillery along the busy Pony Express Trail in the Gold Rush region in 1861. His great-great-great-grandson Mike explored the connection more than 140 years later and bought property in nearby Fair Play, planting vineyards and reviving the family legacy. The winery itself is completely modern, solar-powered and constructed of recycled steel. Hilltop views stretch across the foothills and Sierra. The family also recently acquired the original property. Son Kevin and his wife Kathy, who discovered the connection, live in Aptos. Kevin works as a captain in the Salinas Fire Department.

WHY I LIKE IT >> This wine is like a favorite trail on a dark night, known paths are infused with mystery. Inky color gives way to aromas of dark fruit and pepper. The arching flavor profile includes black cherry, cranberry, blackberry and leather. Nice tannins give good structure and tartness. Slight mint colors the long finish.

In a particularly eloquent moment, Karen von Blixen-Finecke, better known by her pen name Isak Dinesen, likened her wine to infatuation.

Sauvignon Blanc India

“Love, with very young people, is a heartless business,” she said. “We drink at that age from thirst, or to get drunk; it is only later in life that we occupy ourselves with the individuality of our wine.” James Arthur Vineyards has been harvesting and producing Nebraskan wines since 1997. Located in Raymond, Nebraska, the vineyards grow French-American hybrid grapes, used to transform into a great variety of wines, ranging from dry reds and bubbly champagnes to specialty wines.

The vineyard recently opened a tasting room in the downtown Haymarket of Lincoln. Barb Ballard, daughter of vineyard founder James Arthur Jeffers, along with Ballard’s husband, Jim Ballard, runs the business end of the tasting room, while her husband makes the wine.
