Perfect with oyster stew in honor of my fathers birthday￼... I remember him every year by making this dish￼ and my own touch is enjoying it with some unpretentious white burgundy 🌟 p.s. I just found out this year that this is also the birthday of Jaco pastorius who my dog is named after￼￼￼...mind blown! — 9 hours ago
Like many I opened a bottle of ochota last week to toast the life of Taras Ochota who passed on Monday. I have long loved the Ochota wines and have felt lucky to have them in the Charleston market, but this “A Forest” Pinot was a gift from afar and one I have held onto for a year knowing the right time would come to open it. Well, last week seemed perfect time to celebrate a person who was a leader in making natural wines that were vibrant, beautiful, and sound. Any article about Taras and his wife Amber brimmed with their positive energy, and I loved this quote from him that appeared in a Imbibe tribute:
‘We could make more,’ he said to a room full of journalists, sitting round his enormous kitchen table last year. ‘But then I’d have to work harder, and then I wouldn’t be drinking wine with you guys.
‘I just want to make wine and have a nice life.’
Here’s to a life well lived! ❤️

Wow this wine is singing and it’s just a baby!! This is probably the most exciting Wine I’ve had in a while, meaning that it jumped out of the glass and kind of cast a spell on us. Classic white burgundy profile: apples, pears, rocks and some chamomile tea but also with this touch of lightning that makes it magic! ￼￼￼￼ perfect with homemade chicken Pho but wd be perfect with many things￼ 🌟❤️ — a month ago
