A long time bucket list destination, Mendoza is considered one of the Wine Capitals of the World and the Wine Capital of South America.

With the National Harvest Festival (Fiesta Nacional de la Vendimia) set to start on Monday, February 25, we are looking forward to experincing this exciting region during it’s glory days.

Inspired by our recent trip to Puerto Rico, we thought that we would share with you some our favorite rums from around the world. For those not familiar with rum, it is a distilled spirit made from sugarcane byproducts, such as molasses or sugarcane juice. Just like wine, rum is shaped by things like terroir, aging method and by the quality of the raw material being used to craft it. Rum comes in different colors and styles with the most common ones being white, gold, dark and spiced.

With the New Year upon us we are excited to announce the 2018 Wine Destinations Wine of the Year. During 2018 we once again had the opportunity to visit one of our favorite wine destinations, the beautiful Sonoma County. This time around we were fortunate to visit the historic Hanzell Vineyards. Nestled at the toe of the Mayacamas Mountains, this family farm is home to the oldest Pinot Noir and Chardonnay vines in the Western Hemisphere.

With the year coming to an end, we thought we would share with you our Top 10 Wine Experiences of 2018. This year took us to Napa, Sonoma, Michigan’s Leelanau Península, Charleston, South Carolina, Puerto Rico and the wine trails of Indiana. It has been an incredible year and we have tasted some amazing wines. It was hard to narrow it down to ten because of the genuine hospitality we received at each place we visited. Thanks to everyone that welcomed us with open arms in 2018, we certainly hope to see you again.
