Woman on Wine

with Amy Reiley

It’s proven that women are more sensitive than men to the subtleties of taste.  They also tend to give more provocative, enticing descriptions of wine. That’s why we have women do our wine writing.

Why you should drink Champagne in summer

Drink Champagne in Summer…Just Because

Woman on Wine with Amy Reiley This time of year, I’m typically hired to write about rosé. It is THE wine of summer these days. And that’s wonderful. I love rosé. It’s made from red wine grapes removed from the skin so that the resulting wine is generally light and crisp–perfect for summer. So why […]

Aged Champagne–the exciting experience of tasting great Champagne as it ages

Woman on Wine with Amy Reiley Last month I attended a seminar on what happens when Champagne ages. The truth is, the presenter didn’t delve too much into the chemistry or history of aging Champagne.
