The other day I was shopping at my favorite Italian Market on my lunch hour- I was in a hurry- when I picked up a bottle of Riesling to go with my Menopause Mafia writing that night. What?

Being in a hurry I didn’t realize what I was picking up- I was pleasantly surprised to find a new wine that come from a region just a...
