“This year is a watershed moment for us — it’s the fifth year of FEASTIVAL, and the first year that FringeArts has its own building,” says FringeArts Board President Richard Vague. “With that, we will expand from 16 days to well over 100 days of performances annually — and that means an unprecedented level of groundbreaking theater and dance for Philadelphia.”
Well, we survived our first football season weekend….and the Eagles won! In honor of our first football Sunday, we indulged in some homemade chili and wine. Yup, that’s right…football, chili and wine make for a great Sunday afternoon. We got a little inspired after being invited to participate in Riunite’s Ultimate Chili Challenge. Chili and Lambrusco? Hmmm…wine not?!
So we cooked up our special hot turkey chili made with Del Monte diced tomatoes and Louisiana Hot Sauce (along with other ingredients that will remain a secret) and paired it with a chilled Lambrusco from Riunite. The red wine’s light and spritzy qualities and the spicy, bold flavors of the chili balanced each other out to make for a great tailgate (or “home-gate”) pairing.
If you’ve got a great chili recipe and you love wine then you definitely don’t want to miss Riunite’s nationwide chili cook-off. The Grand Prize is a trip for two to Arizona for the Super Bowl in February 2015!

One of the things that we get asked a lot about is how to properly store wine. Well, while we may not be expert sommeliers and our wine bottles don’t usually stand a chance of getting stored, we do dream of having that beautiful cave-like wine cellar one day. Until then, we’ve put together a few helpful infographics we came across that do a nice job of breaking down wine storage for us. Cheers!
If you think it’s been a little quiet over here at Vino & Vintage…you’re not exactly wrong. We just got back from a much needed Summer vacation in California. Don’t get it twisted though, it was definitely not all play and no work (though it was a lot of California wine!). Actually, we’ve been getting ready for some fun and exciting things that await us coming this Fall. In preparation, we are having an end-of-Summer sale! Check it out…..

The perfect Summer cocktail? Sangria of course! Finding the right blend of wine, fruit and other ingredients can be tricky.
