Amelia Island Wine Festival

My favorite part of traveling is stimulating your senses out of their regular routine. In particular tasting the flavors of a new place whether that be in the local foods or the area's beverages like a neighborhood microbrew or a region's wines.  I've traveled to Napa and Sonoma Valley to taste their wines.  I just returned from a trip to Tuscany (yes, a blog is coming) to sip on fine Italian vino.  But there are so many wine regions, varieties and vintages I have yet to sample. But don't worry, if you can't catch a plane to zip around to every wine region, you're in luck!  The second annual Amelia Island Wine Festival will be held October 12, 2013 at The Shops of Amelia Island Plantation from 11am to 5pm! With a new location at the Omni Amelia Island Plantation, the Amelia Island Wine Festival will feature dozens of award-winning wines from the premier growing regions of Argentina, Chile, Australia, New Zealand and South Africa. You can learn about the wines and wineries from wine industry representatives, sample some of the wines of returning Florida wineries, and purchase a bottle or case to prolong the pleasure long after you return home.

Travelogue: Visiting the Rum Capital of The World

To visit Puerto Rico is to experience a nation stuck in political and cultural limbo. One thing is clear throughout the island though, and that’s the national drink of choice. From chilly, lime-kissed silver daiquiris to flaming cinnamon coffees, rum is central to the Puerto Rican way of life. It runs through their national fabric much like it ran through my veins during my recent visit. The pride the island has for this distilled sugarcane spirit is unmistakable – which I can relate to as a Texan!
