The Basics of Food & Wine Pairing

A great food and wine pairing creates a balance between the components of a dish and the characteristics of a wine. As much as pairing food and wine is complex, the basics are simple to grasp.

Featured Artist of the Month — The Bahes — May 14th to June 30th

Steve and Brenda Bahe are the featured artists of this month. 

ARTIST BIO

We are a husband and wife team who really enjoy producing the likenesses of sea creatures, animals, bees and butterflies, but also legendary beings such as fairies, mermaids and even Sasquatch. Since we have not yet seen him, the jury is still out if he falls into the living or legendary category!

By combining technology, artistry, and mechanical know-how, we custom design each piece. We usually start with a drawing but have also used clients special photos. We then use a plasma cutter to cut the piece from different types and thicknesses of rolled steel. After the piece is cut, it needs to be ground and polished. We then use paints, stains, and patinas to bring our interpretations to life.

Following our dream to live on the west coast, we have found inspiration at every turn. We are happy to call southern Oregon home.

Winemaker’s Corny...I mean Corner

I feel a bit like ‘A Stranger in a Strange Land’…Oh Wait I think someone else already used that as a title!! Ok then, How about Strange Times Indeed?!?

As we ALL are living through some unique events, hopefully never to be repeated in our lives. I’m reminded of an old Chinese curse “May you live in Interesting Times”.

While things are different, and there have been some changes, here at RoxyAnn we persevere. The Tasting Room is open for drop by traffic, and we have a delivery option for those who live locally.

Out in the Vineyards we are doing some modifications to the trellising on some of the new plantings we’ve put in over the last couple of years. Hoping to open up the vine canopy some to ‘Let the Sun Shine In’. Wait, I think that might have been a song title. Damn, all the good words have been used already!! We’re also doing some work with the young vines as Mother Nature don’t care about no stinking stay at home orders! Ha! The Cellar Boys (sounds kind of like a Boy Band, don’t ya think?) are putting together our Claret and Honor Barn Blends so we can be ready to bottle them in June. BTW, they are turning out very nice! Now if we can just not mess them up!! Ha! Working in the days of Social Separation has been quite different for us. No more Kumbaya morning hug, and our afternoon snuggle/nap is now out as well.

Things will eventually return to “normal” and we will all go on with our lives. In the meantime be smart, safe, and take care of those around you. Rest assured RoxyAnn will be here for you now and into the future, because everybody needs a little wine every now and then!

Remember ‘Don’t Worry, Be Happy” (oh there I go again!)

Ciao,
~K
