A Spirited, Spooktacular Halloween

A Spirited, Spooktacular HalloweenLifestyle / VineLife
October in wine country is an exciting whirlwind, filled with harvest parties and crush parties as Napa Valley wineries celebrate the end of the summer growing season. The month also signals the beginning of the holiday season and welcomes the merrymaking to come. Whether you celebrate October with treats or tricks, make it a celebration to remember with these great harvest time ideas.

A chilling idea for Halloween. A Halloween Wine Tasting party:

Invite your wine loving friends, scatter some pumpkins and candles around to set the scene, and then break out the wine! Whether you serve simple or Halloween-themed appetizers like this Mummy Baked Brie or cheese shaped like a pumpkin, buffet style serving is a great way to have your guests serve themselves.
Try a Halloween themed Personalized Wine. Choose a few varietals to suit everyone’s taste buds or a case of a particular varietal. Upload your favorite scary image and text a…



“Run Free: The True Story of Caballo Blanco,” as feature-length documentary about ultra-running legend Micah True will premiere at The Flicks in Boise on Thursday, October 22 at 7 p.m. The one-night-only event is sponsored by the Pulse Running & Fitness Shop in Meridian as a fundraiser for the Ridge to Rivers Trail System.

Drink Now or Cellar for Later…That is the Question

Drink Now or Cellar for Later…That is the QuestionLifestyle / Winemaker's Journal In the world of wine, a common myth is to believe that all wines improve with age. The large majority of wines purchased today are designed for more immediate consumption. So should we drink now or cellar for later? These wines can lose their freshness and fruitiness within less than one year. Sparkling, red, white, rosé and sweet wines are all fighting time in different ways. On the other hand, barrel fermented and aged wines, sweet wines like Muscat or Riesling, fine red wines with tannins like Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Bordeaux, Burgundy or Barolo will all improve with age because of the way they were made. However, do not hesitate to enjoy a Milano Sangiovese or Malvasia, the Terroir L’Ouverture, the Fleur Bleu Viognier or Zinfandel, or our award-winning Frisch Riesling now. These types of wines are designed for just that purpose. As you’ll often read in my wine tas…
