A very pleasant bouquet featuring aromas of green apple, grapefruit, wet stone and spice. Lean on the palate with refreshingly crisp acidity. Integrated flavors of green apple, ruby red grapefruit and citrus complimented by hints of honeycomb, minerality and vanilla with notes of graham cracker in the finish. Buy This Wine
Father’s Day Wine Pairing – This article originally appeared on the award winning site; Tasty Chomps from Orlando, FL. I was honored to contribute my personal suggestions for wine pairings.
Father’s Day is soon approaching. If you haven’t picked out something special for good ol’ dad, don’t sweat it – we have a few recommendations to make this Father’s Day extra special. For those of you who were triumphant in braving the busy shops and malls to find that perfect gift, we’d like to remind you that no gift is perfect without wine. If you got him chocolate – get him wine! If you’re taking him out to dinner – get him wine! Is he receiving a beautiful white dress shirt? Again, get that man some wine, STAT.
After surveying a total of 81 dads across the nation and figuring out what they really want for Father’s Day, Roger Beery of Bacchus & Beery and I discussed which wines pair exquisitely with these suggestions.
A sophisticated and balanced style of Chardonnay with all the flavors and aromas enjoyed by those who love oaked Chardonnay without getting overblown. The nose is a bouquet of red apple, pear, Meyer lemon and tropicals highlighted with notes of oaky vanilla. A lush and creamy mouth-feel with balanced acidity offering flavors of red apple, caramel, citrus, minerality, toasty brioche and vanilla. Subtle hints of toffee on the finish. Buy This Wine
Wine Blogger Roger Beery of Bacchus and Beery – Interview
I was excited to be interviewed by the premiere European Food and Fashion website, Webflakes. So if you wanted to know a bit more about the guy behind Bacchus and Beery…Here you go.
This week we introduce you to Roger Beery who, along with his wife Donna, started the wine blog Bacchus and Beery, which is dedicated to tasting, enjoying, discovering, and of course, just drinking wine.
They started their love affair with wine back in college and it is now a shared passion in their family, with both their son and daughter working in the industry.
With years of experience, Roger is now a self-appointed Wine Evangelist spreading the Gospel of the Grape – from sharing an interest with lifelong friends to passing down his family’s passion to their children.

A refreshingly lean and clean style with crisp yet balanced acidity. A nose of ripe pineapple and a hint of green apple is the prelude to perfectly integrated flavors of lemon creme, ripe pineapple, citrus and complimentary minerality. Paired wonderfully with a summer fruit salad laced with poppy seed dressing. Buy This Wine
