Mouton Cadet: Bordeaux without the steep price tag:
One of the key factors behind Baron Philippe de Rothschild's success is the art of blending. Today’s Mouton Cadet is a fruitier, rounder style wine, and a good value for Bordeaux AOC wine on the market.
Cuvaison, Carneros, Napa Valley, California::
Cuvaison’s Chardonnays and Pinot Noirs come from estate-grown vines, small crops that have concentrated fruit. “ In Carneros the soils are limiting so they restrict the vigor of the vines, and so shallow that the roots are forced to struggle and look deep for water,” says winemaker Steve Rogstad.
A cluster of stars: Matariki:
Premium boutique winery from Hawkes Bay, New Zealand makes elegant, well-balanced and intense wines from its privileged Gimblett Gravels Estates.
Great Wine Under $15: 2003 Escudo Rojo, Baron Philippe de Rothschild, Maipo, Chile :
An assemblage of traditional Bordeaux varieties with the typical Chilean grape Carmenère turns out to be a well rounded wine with a complex finish that pairs well with most every food.
Bracco Wines, well-priced star-studded labels from Italy::
HBO Sopranos Actress Lorraine Bracco launches her own line of Bracco Wines; eight different varietals she selected from various Italian regions and producers, from Pinot Grigio and Montepulciano d’Abruzzo to Primitivo.

Charming Brussels, Belgium: the "In" place to visit The Capital of the European Union is not only a busy metropolis with charming neighborhoods, world-class shopping and hotels, cultural life, museums, architecture, but a foodie heaven plentiful of gastronomic restaurants, fabulous beers, brasseries, regional cheeses and foods, street vendors, and chocolatiers.

Summertime And The Living Is Easy In Northern Burgundy: Rich in tradition, history, gastronomy and excellent wines, Burgundy is renowned for its warm hospitality and inimitable knack for enjoying life. Linda Watten enjoys the long, balmy evenings scented with lilac, wisteria, and climbing roses of her garden while feasting on local produce, wines and cultural events in neighboring Medieval towns.


Havana Salsa and Grill of Victory:

Food writer Viviana Carballo not only shares the memorable meals she had with her delightfully eccentric family in Havana Salsa, a vibrant memoir with seventy or more recipes, but she brings back the Havana of her childhood: the warm nights, the pounding surf, the characters and the magic that all Cuban-born émigrés remember with nostalgia. A BBQ judge for the past 16 years, Bill Brohaugh takes us to the bizarre world of Competition on the Barbeque circuit with his book The Grill of Victory.
