  • Ooh La La! Five Beautiful French Wines

    We Americans have several hang ups regarding the French and their wonderful wines.

    Here's a little history on the subject:

    1. There has been a strong anti-French political bias in this country dating back to the first gulf war. Some people even went so far as to start eating "American Fries" with their burgers and milkshakes.

  • Five Exceptional Spanish Wines Showcased Locally Thursday Night

    Spain's place near the top of the wine world is undisputed around the globe. Their winemaking traditions go back centuries and wine is a huge part of Spanish culture on several levels. The diversity of the varietal offerings and vinification styles make Spain a wonderful place to investigate wine.

  • Deschutes Brewery Comes to Ohio

    It seems thee is a new craft beer available in our Valley just about every week. There is no doubt that the craft beer category is continuing a two year explosion that seems to have no end. One of the cool things about craft beer is that there are so many great, well established breweries still out there to be discovered. Deschutes Brewery is one of those "new" craft beers just arriving in our state.

  • Good brews travel fast

    Good brews travel fast

    Valley craft beer lovers are celebrating the arrival of New Belgium Brewing Company to the Buckeye state. The Fort Collins, Colo.-based brewery has long been regarded as one of the forefathers of the craft beer movement. Until recently you had to travel west to enjoy its beer, but that all changed in the past month as the Superior Beverage Group began distributing New Belgium’s legendary Fat Tire Ale and two other beers across the state.

  • Five Great Pinot Noir Values

    California Pinot Noir prices have been steadily climbing over the last ten years. High demand is part of the equation, but it's also more challenging to grow the delicate grape in some regions due to the increasingly warmer growing season. Whatever the reasons for the price increases, you have to look a little longer and shop a little smarter to find some good ones at resonable prices.

    I recently tasted about twenty California Pinots in the $12-$25 price range. Many of them were run of the mill or even flat out dissapointing, but there were a few standouts. Here's a list of five that I think you'll enjoy without spending too much money.

  • Viva Vino Italiano!

    Italian wine events are quite popular in our Valley and there are usually several throughout the course of a calendar year. One of the challenges for the people organizing these events is to find a way to make their event stand out. Local wine club Valley Vino and the folks at Avalon Golf and Country Club, believe they are offering something truly unique.

    Wine pioneer retires with glass half full

    The Valley’s local wine industry is losing one of its longest tenured and most respected members today as Tony Galose retires from Tri County Distributing after more than 40 years in the business. Galose was actively involved in helping to shape the current Valley wine scene in both the retail and restaurant settings.

  • 2014 Wine Event Preview

    Local wine club Valley Vino had a tremendous year in 2013. The new partnership with Avalon Golf and Country Club proved to be a huge success.

  • Top Ten Value Wines of 2013

    When I first founded Valley Vino Wine Club our mission was simple. Bring people together to enjoy five wines they probably hadn't tried before,priced $10-$20, and that represented incredible quality at their price point. We worked with Chefs to pair the wines with dinner courses, making for an enjoyable and affordable evening for everyone.
