WINE & MOVIES

ALICE IN WONDERLAND ‘Is all that we see or seem but a dream within a dream?’ Edgar Allen Poe asked this question in this poem ‘A Dream Within A Dream’. Often times, when it’s too good to be true, it is just that. However, there are indeed occasions when dreams become reality. Here enters Domaine Pierre Usseglio. On the nose, prepare for dense frozen strawberries, vanilla extract, Irish soda bread, melted cherry lozenges, baby powder, SunMaid raisins & fig newton, followed up by unthawed frozen strawberries, sage & thyme on the palate. A wonderland of flavors to explore, this wine had me feeling like Alice suspended in a place of pure magic. Check out PANORAMA by PIERRE USSEGLIO & be sure to watch ALICE IN WONDERLAND.

WINE & MUSIC

THE CURE I’m not a sentimental guy. Most love songs don’t do much for me. However, there’s one that I can get into - Lovesong by The Cure. I’d pair this track with the wines produced by Bill Frick. From 7.77 acres of land in Sonoma, Frick produces 1400 cases of Rhone varietals that vintage after vintage I always love. Incidentally, it was at Frick Winery that My Wine Words began, as Allie and I filmed our first episode there. Want to watch? Click HERE to have a look. Visit FRICK WINERY online & replay The Cure’s LOVESONG.

WINE & ART

STEPHANIE SCHLATTER Both this artist, Stephanie Schlatter, and this wine, the 2011 Gewurztraminer from Blustone Vineyards make me want to break into song with Stevie Wonder’s ‘Isn’t She Lovely’. Every painting from Stephanie and each bottle from Blustone seems to maintain bright, lively character presented with a unique expression that is, well, lovely. Cheers to art found both inside and outside of the bottle. Check out BLUSTONE VINEYARDS & STEPHANIE SCHLATTER ART.


ALLIE IN WINE

WONDERLAND


a wine isn’t always what it seems sometimes it surpasses the magic of dreams


with each sip you wander deeper yet toward memories known and those yet to be met


what fills your glass may fill your mind with more than what can be defined as to no words it can be confined


should you find a wine that leaves you speechless don’t seek what to speak and risk being dreamless instead just sip what you don’t understand and tip back as you taste in wine wonderland

THIBAULT’S TOP PICKS A LIST OF THIS FRENCH WINEMAKER’S FAVORITES

Allie: What is your FAVORITE part about making wine? Thibault: The moment that follows the harvest. Everything becomes quiet in the cellars. So, I put on some classical music and take care of my wines. Allie: What is your FAVORITE food & wine pairing? Thibault: A glass of Chambolle Musigny & some Epoisses on a slice of traditional bread. Allie: What is your FAVORITE thing about living in Burgundy? Thibault: Its history and its soul. Allie: What is your FAVORITE piece of music to play on the piano? Thibault: ‘Brothers’ from Ludovico EINAUDI. I love his universe, and I’m particularly proud of my brother, he deserves the best. Allie: What is your FAVORITE thing to drink (when wine isn't in your glass)? Thibault: A great Belgium beer!
