Been missing the PNW a lot lately. The smell in the air and just being outside. The cold weather doesn't bother me. Want to book another trip through Vancouver and perhaps further North, then ultimately back down through @wa_state_wine and @willamettevalleyvineyards. Any other ideas for stops in the area? 😃

What is "Wine Travel" to you? My face in this picture is a combination of "am I really fuggin here?" ... "what other possibilities are there for me to explore?" and perhaps a solid txakoli buzz (not featured here) 😂🥂. We're going to be running a survey in the next couple of months, but it would be nice to hear how many of my friends understand and appreciate the concept. For me, it's really about storytelling. It doesn't mean you need to travel to a famous wine region. To you, perhaps it's just you and a couple of close friends enjoying a bottle of something beautiful from a foreign land at your local watering hole. This leads to great conversation, future plans and potentially new friendships and an open mind. I really believe that wine is a mind-expanding beverage that brings history, location, and more specifically, "terroir" to the forefront. Something that more often than not is sorely missing from where we should be - living in the moment. Follow our new brand @winetraveler_com and let's start changing the world one experience at a time :).

So excited to be in the Douro Valley next month, a region that is so much more than just Port wine. Some of my favorite dry reds are made from Touriga Nacional and Tinto Roriz (Tempranillo). Crushing on this capture from @dourovintage 🍷😍. Have you been to the Douro? What would you recommend exploring? 😃

We're covering a grape variety that in my opinion doesn't get enough press. Carménère is a medium bodied savory red wine that originated in France, but today is better known as Chile's national grape. What are some of your favorite Carménère examples? You can find a decent bottle almost anywhere (I took this shot next to a Volcano in the Costa Rican jungle). Take a look at the article in my profile to learn more about this tasty variety and what sub-regions of Chile are making the best examples.

What's your favorite style of Italian wine? For me it's a bit situational. I enjoy a nice stone fruit forward spumante Prosecco on a hot day like this one. But if I'm relaxing on a cooler evening I crave a rich black and blue fruit forward Amarone. Italy is home to over 3000 grape varieties, so the possibilities here are really endless and my palate is always seeking something new.

While the wildfires that hit Northern California last month month affected thousands, Sonoma Valley tourism took a bigger hit from poor media coverage (which is running rampant these days around the world). Caroline Beteta of @visitcalifornia put it into perspective: "Just the imagery alone, I would argue, did more damage than the actual damage to the tourism infrastructure. The difference now is do we have the bandwidth and resources to deal with the media correction." This is a tricky subject, as many lost their lives and more than 5,100 people are still displaced. Sonoma press and media outlets are trying to figure out their messaging, but you can help support the community by visiting Sonoma and the vast degrees of beauty present across both the palate and the landscape. Don't cancel your trips, book new ones and create an experience you won't forget. Questions? Send me a DM for recommendations on where to eat, drink and play.

Looking for a tasty dry white wine that's somewhat similar to Sauvignon Blanc? Consider Albariño, especially as a seafood pairing. While it's native to Portugal (dubbed Alvarinho) this wine recently claimed the 1 white wine spot in terms of popularity in Spain. I spoke with a Spanish somm on our new brand @winetraveler_com to learn more. Take a look at the link in my profile to find out more about the wine and the beautiful region it's grown in.

Cheers to the weekend all! In my glass: Peter Yealands 2015 Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc, a favorite seafood pairing. Sourced from the Awatere Valley at Seaview Vineyard, this is an incredibly aromatic Sauv with zesty lemon lime peel tones, fresh cut grass and refreshing mineral notes. What's everyone drinking this weekend?

"I think one travels more usefully when they travel alone, because they reflect more." - Thomas Jefferson Does anyone else agree with Tom? I've had great experiences traveling both solo and with friends, but I think having time to digest your experiences by yourself offers a different and necessary kind of growth.

Autumn 🍂 makes for one of the best times of year to visit wine country. In addition to the trees and vines beginning to change color, you're catching harvest season in the Northern hemisphere, which means you'll often get the opportunity to stomp on some grapes and see wine making in action. This photo was captured by @silviacev in Treiso, which is a commune within Piedmonte, perhaps best known for its Barbaresco production with Nebbiolo grapes 🍇. Check out her awesome account and follow our wine travel account @winetraveler_com on Instagram for help planning your wine trips around the world :).

What's the oldest wine you've tried to date? Crushing on this 1936 Chateau Lafaurie-Peyraguey Sauternes. Outstanding notes of aged toffee, candied apricots, rich caramel and honeyed mango. Incredibly smooth and velvety texture. 😍
