Selecting wine is not easy. I find that I usually rely on the staff recommendations at the grocery store or else I go with one of my standby favorites. When I want to try something different however, or I'm looking for a pairing with a particular dish or perhaps need something special to give as a gift, I'm usually stumped.
Luckily for me (and now everyone else!) I've been able to call on my friend Elizabeth to help me pick a superb wine even when I'm just looking for an 'everyday' type of thing.
I'd like to introduce you to a new wine resource ~ Elizabeth's List ~ a weekly offering of personal favorites chosen by someone well versed in the Northern California boutique wine community. Consider her like a girlfriend you can trust who truly knows wine and the winemakers behind them.
Let me first say that Elizabeth is not only my dear friend, Tuesday morning running partner, mother of three, Southern Belle and all around terrific peron, but she reeeaaallly knows wine. I often call her from the store saying something like, "What should I get that goes with chicken strips?" or "We're grilling steaks, what's your recommendation?" and she always gets it right.
No minimum order. Porthos handles all the shipping, which is free on 6 or more bottles to anywhere in the US. Tasting notes come with the wine as well as pairing recommendations.
Elizabeth's List offers a wine selection each week or two. I feature a wine and tell a bit about the program. Clicking the link to purchase takes you to check out. Very easy and Porthos is super professional.

Happy weekend! I hope it invloves something nice to sip. A votre sante!
