Dear Bacchus, April 12, 2013

I've posted my top wine picks for April 27 and May 11 so that you can get a jump on your shopping list. You'll also find my reviews published in the Vintages Catalogue.

This week's video chat is about pairing wine and cookies ... yes, it is possible and deliciously so.

Have a great weekend!
