winefolly-book-picMy wife, Lisa, and I love traveling and have recently started getting into wine a bit more. When we planned a trip to Palisade, CO we decided to educate ourselves a bit about wine so we grabbed a copy of “Wine Folly: The Essential Guide to Wine” by Madeline Puckette. It’s an awesome book, and we highly recommend it – it’s a great intro to wine and wine tasting. As a fellow designer, I also really appreciate the modern, colorful design Madeline uses throughout the book πŸ™‚ If you’re interested, you can grab a copy from Amazon here.

As we visited the various wineries, we rated each wine we tasted (following the wine tasting and rating tips that Madeline shares in her book). It was a super-helpful way for us to figure out what types of wine we preferred and which we didn’t care for. Of course, everyone’s taste buds are different, so our taste may be different from yours. So definitely check out the wineries yourself to discover which wines YOU like best πŸ™‚

I created this site as a fun way for us to keep track of our wine ratings as we visit different wineries. As we travel with family and friends, you may notice us add additional initials and abbreviations. Please feel free to rate each winery yourself via the review section for each winery and/or create a free account to save your own tasting notes for each winery.

At the very least, I hope this site is a helpful way for you to discover some neat wineries and preview some pictures of the tasting rooms and grounds. Enjoy! πŸ™‚
