LVE Cabernet Sauvignon

I had the pleasure of drinking LVE Cabernet Sauvignon on a wine picnic with my dog Henry this weekend and wow. This is a hell of a wine. With 85% Cabernet Sauvignon grapes and 15% Petit Verdot, the LVE Cabernet Sauvignon is a rich wine that wows. Sexy and alluring, this would be the perfect night…

Birthday Picnic

This is a rare personal post on The Rose Table! I had the best birthday today with my friends and I wanted to share some photos with you guys.  I spent all afternoon enjoying some of my favorite things (champagne, cheese, and horses) with some of my favorite people. I didn’t want to cook on…

Kuhlman Cellars 2016 Reserve Merlot

Everyone else’s new year’s resolution seems to be to get fit/get abs/lose weight but personally I just want to drink more wine and be happy. So far, so good! To savor wine is to savor life and that’s something that both Kuhlman Cellars and I whole-heartedly believe. I visited Kuhlman Cellars in the rolling hills…

Disney’s Frozen 2

I was honored to attend Disney’s Frozen 2 premiere in Dallas on Tuesday night. I had such a wonderful time at the premiere with my friend Meggie! I wanted to tell you about it ASAP but as many of you know my week was derailed. Frozen 2 is officially out in theaters and I want…

4.0 Cellars

Ten years ago, three Texas winemakers from around the state decided to open a winery in the heart of the Texas wine country, Fredericksburg. Brennan Vineyards, Lost Oak Winery, and McPherson Cellars came together to open 4.0 Cellars, which is known for its wine and cheese and wine and chocolate pairings. I recently had the…

Fall Rosé Horse Picnic

I know you, I walked with you once upon a dream. I had the Saturday of my dreams. I uncorked one of my finest bottles, my NV Folktale Rosé Brut from Folktale Winery, for happy hour with my beloved horse Prince and gorgeous friend Cathryn. You might remember me raving about this particular bottle during my…

Dinner with Jean-Charles Boisset at Chateau du Lac

There are Fridays and then there are Fridays. Last week I had one of those epic evenings that can only be described as dreamy. When Boisset invited me to their Alchemy of the Senses Wine Dinner, I said yes without even knowing the location. That’s how fun their events always are! Little did I know…

Pontotoc Vineyard’s Weingarten

A historic respite in downtown Fredericksburg  Tucked away in the charming town of Fredericksburg, Texas lies Pontotoc Vineyard’s Weingarten. Lights are strung from trees and the stone courtyard offers a quiet sanctuary from the hustle and bustle of the famous Texas town. It’s modeled after the weingartens of Vienna and is both kid- and dog-friendly. I had the pleasure…

Folktale Winery

I could not possibly love Folktale Winery any more. The estate is situated on fifteen acres of sustainably-farmed vineyards just ten minutes outside of town in Carmel, California. The patio is beyond perfect to sip the day away. Imagine sipping the best rose you’ve ever had on comfortable couches in 70-degree weather, roses swaying in…

The Rose Table Turns Five

Today is The Rose Table’s fifth anniversary! It’s hard to believe it’s been five whole years since I first launched The Rose Table. Thank you all for reading and watching and being part of my kitchen! The highlight of my day is talking to all of you. It’s going to be a great next year!…

Kuhlman Cellars

I love how Kuhlman Cellars feels about wine. I recently toured the laid-back Stonewall vineyard on a trip to Fredericksburg, Texas and something on the tour stuck in my: “It takes a long time to make wine. You should spend a long time enjoying it.” That sums up my own feelings about wine! A true…

Visiting Grape Creek Vineyards

A stroll through Tuscany in the Texas hill country Even driving past Grape Creek Vineyards is impressive. The hills have rows and rows of impeccably manicured grapevines and it only gets more stunning from there. I visited Grape Creek last week on a media trip to Fredericksburg and Grape Creek was the first stop on…
