Non-Lazy Aperitifs Show You Care

By |November 9th, 2020|

If we can remember what the in-person social gatherings of pre-Covid life was like, the aperitif was the start, the alpha, the kickoff to a highly anticipated meal or food fare function. But somehow, it’s also a category easily overlooked. Not to mention the very role of an aperitif sweeping [...]

Are you bored yet? Here’s an Idea!

By |November 4th, 2020|

Are you bored yet? After organizing my closet for the tenth time and watching all of the Netflix series, I thought it would be a good idea to get out of the house! As with most states our activities in Illinois are limited, but not our imagination. There’s still some [...]

Knockoff or Knockless? SWW Weighs In.

By |October 26th, 2020|

Transform Your Wine & Chocolate Pairing

By |October 12th, 2020|

Pairing wine with chocolate can be a bit of a hurdle—the complexity is almost intimidating. But complexity can be tamed. We were given a chance to rethink that nearly ubiquitous pairing in a whole new light, featuring little hand-crafted works of art from Phillip Ashley Chocolates. Phillip Ashley Rix, Photo [...]

The Original Sparkling Wine – Wine of The Week

By |October 7th, 2020|

Champagne is often credited as the "first sparkling wine produced." Although it may be the most well-known, it was not the first sparkling wine created. That title belongs to Blanquette de Limoux created in 1531, over 100 years prior to Champagne. Blanquette de Limoux was first made in Saint Hilaire [...]

Plant Parent Wine Inspiration

By |September 28th, 2020|

One diversion output of 2020—aside from the influx of new banana bread makers—is the yield of new plant parents. Succulents, snake plants, eucalyptus, you name it. Along for the ride is the resurgence of in-vogue macrame plant hanger enthusiasts. I don’t know what it is. Maybe it’s something about tending, [...]
