It’s been a cold winter. Duh! But let’s not let that stop us from dressing up a bit and enjoying three elegant white wines that are perfect in front of a fireplace!
Pinot Grigio, Tommasi (Italy) 8
Semillon, L’ecole #41 (Washington) 8.50
Chardonnay, Chehalem Inox (Oregon) 8.75
Two of our daughters now live a stone’s throw from Napa Valley. As a result, we are racking up frequent flier miles – and enjoying stellar red wines! Dreams are made of these three.

Bordeaux Blend, Burgess “Topography” (Napa) 12.75
Cabernet Blend, Duckhorn “Paraduxx” (Napa)14.50
Laurie and I began our love affair sipping a glass of wine.
As young law students we traveled to Florida together at Spring Break and dined on the beach at a little bistro where we ordered a bottle of wine because it was shaped like a fish. That bottle of wine transformed our meal as we shared, sipped and fell in love. Wine is magical. It can do that to people.
In 2004 we opened Vinovino to provide you with a love affair of your own. We don’t have any bottles shaped like fish but we have personally selected each bottle that represents the best in its class – and we have paired those wines with equally fabulous food.
Wine has become a fascination for us – another interest we share together with our three girls and six chickens. Yes, chickens. That story will have to wait for another day. Today, we hope you will simply share, sip, and fall in love.
"Service was great."
