Faced with a cold and dreary day last week, we decided to meet some friends for lunch and have a drink at a local sports bar. As I looked through the drink menu, I noticed they had an extensive wine list. Typically, at a sports bar I would steer towards a beer but instead, my friend and I decided to split a bottle of the Seghesio Zinfandel.
The best thing about this wine: Big, bold and jammy
Available at: Ryan’s Food and Spirits
By the bottle: $30.00 By the glass: $12.00
Pairs well with: Chicken Nachos and buffalo wings

The other night I set out on a quest. I had planned to show my students a film while I was at a conference Thursday and Friday. Unfortunately, I didn’t realize that I don’t actually own the movie. After an exhaustive search of driving to or calling every store I could think of that sold movies, I found the movie at a Family Video in Elkhorn. On my drive home, I decided that my efforts definitely deserved a glass of wine. The bartender at Pitch thought I deserved a bottle of 2014 Brazin Old Vine Zinfandel, and I felt that she was spot on!
The best thing about this wine: Bold but accessible flavor
Available at: Pitch
By the glass: $10 / By the bottle $42
Pairs well with: Spicy food, red meat
