Recycled Wine Barrel Products

OK, these are great products, and I like the recycled/sustainable angle. I think I'll have to buy the barrel stave platter, it will make a great piece to serve cheese and such on. http://www.rosehillwinecellars.com/3rsV2/access_products.php?manufacturer=barrel_products&category=wine_access

Spring distractions

| | TrackBacks (0)
I wonder if Spring is the death of many web sites as new authors get distracted and go outside to plant gardens, do landscaping, or do the hard work of painting? I know it was the distraction that kept me from writing. Well, that and catching up with friends on Facebook. I often note that when authors start to explain why they haven't been posting, that they end up posting even less! Hopefully that won't be the case here. I still have lots of wine to to taste and write about, but I've also given some thought to new things that could be useful.

First, I'm interested in cataloging local resource for food and wine, as well as travel related to these. So, sites that talk about the Finger Lakes wineries, restaurants on the wine trails, great places to visit while out in the area, and food, local markets, and points of interest in upstate are all going to be featured here as I come across them. I'm also going to make a concerted effort to gather information on wine tasting events in the upstate area that are open to the public - having opportunities to taste wine are is the key to learning to appreciate the breadth and depth of what's available and finding what you really enjoy.
So, on that note, one that I found that I thought worth posting was Cookin' in the 'Cuse. Her photography lends interest to the site, and possibly what hooked me was the photos of food and landscapes in Israel. When I was there in 2007 on three separate trips I found some of the local food to be incredible, including things like freshly squeezed pomegranate juice. Anyway, her writing is great, she covers a lot of things that I enjoy locally, and I recommend the site to you.
