One of our favorite new restaurants in Austin, Il Forte, has begun a happy hour from 4:30 to 7:30. Drink specials and scrumptious Italian appetizers will be served. And i don’t use the word scrumptious lightly! The chef, Gianni, is from Sardinia and he can flat out bring it. Now, they are on 8th between […]

Judging a Chili cook off can be challenging to the palate. Thus my experience Saturday evening outside DKR Stadium at the Engel & Volkers hospitality tent was a pleasant exception.

Sbragia Home Ranch Chardonnay 2012

I have long been a fan of legendary California winemaker Ed Sbragia since he stunned the wine world back in 1994 with his award winning Chardonnay. His new 2012 chard has received a 94 from Wine Spectator and Robert Parker has characterized Sbragia as having the “Midas touch.” Couldn’t agree more. Retail is around $30 […]
