The pop of a cork is traditionally a signal to the start of a special moment, celebration or transition. Think of Champagne at weddings, chardonnay at anniversaries, or a glass of sparkling wine at dinner on New Year’s Eve. No matter the occasion, one always prepares for the event by choosing a robust wine to tip the scales.
Some people still tend to equate sparkling wines as being Champagne, and while it is true that all Champagne is sparkling wine, only sparkling wine made in the Champagne region in France using three types of grapes, chardonnay, pinot noir, and Pinot Meunier can by law be called Champagne which is not entirely accurate for the latter. Sparkling wine can be a white wine, red wine, or Rosé. It can also be mad...

Hear Marc's thoughts on 2012 Trueblood Chardonnay. This artisan Chardonnay was made from 100% chardonnay grapes from our vineyards in Carneros. The grapes were fermented in French Oak Barrels for 9 months before bottling, resulting in an elegant and luscious wine with apple, pear, and tropical fruits, with hints of spice, framed by caramel and creamy vanilla notes on the finish.

Marc Kauffman, The San Francisco Sommelier, continues to explore and review Vampire Wines. Turns out he loves our red blend as much as our pinot noir. Our red blend is a robust wine with flavors of ripe blackberry, black currants, licorice and cherry. A luscious, velvety texture finishes with peppery notes and vanilla. The finish lingers long on the palate.
Vampire Gourmet Bloody Mary has partnered with America's Blood Centers to help bring awareness for the need to donate blood. Every 2 seconds someone is in need of blood and many blood centers only have a one or two day supply. As part of our commitment to support a cause worth fighting for, a portion of all sales of our Vampire Gourmet Bloody Mary will be donated to America's Blood Centers.
Great tasting, natural and ready-to-drink, the Vampire Gourmet Bloody Mary is the first gourmet Bloody Mary that comes in 12 oz. sleek cans, made with vodka, real tomatoes and natural ingredients, using a patented recipe that prevents the vodka from separating from the tomato juice.
In addition to becoming the go-to Bloody Mary Cockta...

Have you wondered whether oxygen is good or bad for wine?
You probably heard that one needs to let wine breath before serving, but you might have also heard that wine left uncorked for too long will go bad. So which is it? Is oxygen good or bad for wine? The answer is — it depends.
I use a banana to explain how it all works. Wine is a fruit, so it makes perfect sense. Picking a banana off the tree is not so different from opening a bottle of wine. The wine continues to develop and change over time as it is exposed to air just as the taste of the banana changes over time once picked.
A fresh banana plucked off a tree is green. It slowly turns yellow; then yellow with brown spots; then eventually all brown; and eventually it turns...
