Thank you to our friends at Minnesota Monthly + the lovely Ms. Joy Summers for this very flattering review.
Wine Clubs: The Perfect Mother's Day Gift
Sip Better figures out your taste for wine and goes deep
BY JOY SUMMERS
Published: May 2018
There’s a new wine club based out of Minneapolis that makes for just the sort of mom-pleasing gift we’re all looking for this time of year. I first heard about Sip Better from its founder, sommelier Leslee Miller. Miller operates Amusée, a wine company that teaches classes and builds delicious wine lists for restaurants. I was snuggled in at a seminar she led at Grandview Lodge’s yearly de’Vine weekend.
I had met Miller years before, and I fondly remember the first wine tasting we attended together because she described a white wine as having notes of Banana Runts. RUNTS! Does anyone else remember those little candies, often delivered from one of those little twist-turn vending...
Yes, I know -- we talked a lot about wine + tacos last week! But hey, can you blame us?
Just in case you missed our giant TACO + WINE pairing fiesta -- here are a few spots for you to head to for some of Leslee's favorite pairings throughout the week of Cinco de Mayo. I mean, just because the 5th of May is behind us, doesn't mean you can't throw your own wine + taco party next week, am I right?
Here are a few of the hi-lights...
The week of Cinco de Mayo, Leslee showcased her favorite (Sip Better) wines paired to her friend, Tyge Nelson's restaurants, Pajarito and his delicious handmade tacos on The Jason Show with Jason Matheson -- HERE!
And, the night before Cinco de Mayo, we threw a Wine + Taco Pairing party on FB Live with our friends from Ready + Roam. The LIVE experience showcased talk of pairings, to savvy SANGRIA recipes, to low cal wine and more! Grab a glass, fire up the IPad and sit back, relax and enjoy this one! It's loaded with a slew of tasty info for your summer parties....
Happy (Almost) St. Patrick's Day!
Ok. So, historically, this is not a holiday for wine drinkers. It's all about pints of cold beer and shots of good strong Irish whiskey! But just in case you want to try something a little different, I've collected a little crowd of wines that are perfect for anyone who likes a good stout or porter. Sláinte!
