My colleague and guest wine blogger, Erleichda, wrote previously on his birthday trip to New Zealand’s wine destinations. I accidentally posted his writings in reverse, with his description of wines of the Marlborough district here. Below was intended to be the first of the two columns. Another Wine Escapade: New Zealand’s Central Otago Region by…

For new readers, The Friday Fermentable is our fun end-of-week feature devoted to the fruits of biochemical processes: wine and beer. I am fortunate to have a senior and more well-traveled colleague, Erleichda, who shares with us his wine escapades as accompanied by his beloved Sweetpea. Everytime Erleichda posts, I put another pin on my…

Another Wine Experience: Châteauneuf du Pape Tastings By Erleichda Another twosome of Jim’s Disciples, not to mention their also being members of the “Hiking Group”, celebrated one of those even decade important birthdays.

Another Wine Experience: Little Known or Under Publicized Grape Varieties by Erleichda It was my turn again to name a theme for the almost monthly get together of our wine dinner group, “Jim’s Disciples”. I thought to push the envelope a bit by asking everyone to bring a wine that used a grape variety they…

Another Wine Escapade – “Some Old World vs. New” by Erleichda Our wine and dinner group known as Jim’s Disciples met recently at a BYOB neighborhood Italian-American restaurant.

How could I overlook a post whose third paragraph begins, “The evening began with three different champagnes…“?!? As The Friday Fermentable has been running…

Hence, we are very excited and honored to be recognized by the culinary functional foods and nutraceuticals blog, Eating Fabulous, written by Ruth Schaffer at b5media. Interestingly, we were recognized for our general…

Another Wine Escapade: Valle du Lot by Erleichda Sweetpea and I enjoy hiking as a platform for vacationing (when we’re not partaking of some beach spot). We’ve managed to attract a few likeminded fellow hikers, and are now able to customize our adventurers to suit our collective preferences. One of my only preferences has been…

In late August, our colleague and correspondent Erleichda conducted a winetasting of some offerings from Virginia, picked up on a tour with his beloved Sweetpea. The tasting fell on PharmPreKer’s birthday, so we were unable to make it, but here is Erleichda’s missive. Two things strike me: first, is a whole new education he is…

Welcome to our 2nd installment of The Friday Fermentable, Terra Sigillata’s Friday fun-blogging feature. You can read our mission statement at the original post last week, but the goal, briefly, is to celebrate the particular class of natural products that result from the yeast-based fermentation of sugars from grapes, malted barley, and any plant-based sugar…
