Mystery… Intrigue… Wine This is it, folks! Our fourth, and very last, wine review in the Pick-a-Child series we know you’ve been waiting with bated breath for, much like a tween anticipating the latest and greatest from dear J.K. Rowling.

Pick-a-Child: Round 3

Ok, you know the drill by now. In this, our third installment of Pick-a-Child – previous installment here – we review a 2008 Chateau Beausejour Pentimento, described in one review as having “a way of capturing old world style with its stony soil notes.”  “Soil notes.” Sounds like a baby.

Now that we’ve adjusted and received four […]

Adjusting the Plan

Oh Wine-y Baby, Where Art Though? In a previous post, we described our effort to identify an ageable, yet affordable wine that we could uncork annually to celebrate the launch of our childfree blog – and to test our ability to nurture something over the years.

Childfree Baby Bottles

Baby in a bottle To honor the launch of our childfree blog, our baby, we had planned to decant another sweet baby, a very special bottle. As you’ll soon be all too aware, one of Amy’s hobbies is wine. Lance thinks pretty highly of it too. So we thought it would be fun to uncork […]
