Recently we came across Millesima USA when researching organic wine and it’s become a very helpful resource for our ongoing search for new organic wines to enjoy with family and friends. Millesima USA is the American arm of Bordeaux-based Millesima SA, a leader in online sales of European fine wines. They also have a wine boutique in NYC that you should definitely visit the next time you find yourself in the Upper East Side of Manhattan. We’re planning a trip to NYC in the fall and this is on the top of our list of places to shop.
Celebrating Female Winemakers: Bryce Willingham of Ravage Wines
Bryce Willingham of Ravage Wines is helping to blaze the path for the next generation of female winemakers and we’re lucky enough to have been able to interview her and try her delicious wines!
Her Cabernet Sauvignon is our current favorite especially since it’s super smooth and comes in at around $8 a bottle!
