A global travelogue about wine and food, hosted by me, Deborah Gee, the Toasted Hostess. The goal of the Corkscrew Diary is to embrace a wine-curious public with a non-pretentious window to the enjoyment of wine and the whole wine world. Though the primary focus is to be on the vineyards with the winemakers, while not traveling we have been creating vlogs featuring wine and food pairings from "the world headquarters" here in Nashville. The vlogs are pure "advertainment" - covering all varietals, yet featuring very specific to brands.
We would like to have an opportunity to discuss your options to advertise and the potential for "Spotlighting" your efforts. less
Volcano Vineyards is southern Orgeon micro-winery producing 1200 cases per year - our Tasting Lounge is in our hometown of Bend in Central Oregon. We are former waiters who craft our wines to be well balanced and food friendly. Our 2005 Syrah won Best of Show at the 2008 National Women's Wine Competition. Check us out at Pebble Beach Food & Wine 2009, April 16-20!

Many many many years ago I went to a fundraiser for the Arthritis Foundation in San Francisco. There were 60-something Napa and Sonoma wineries in attendance plus a killer silent auction – a dream afternoon, right? The food options, however, were limited – lots of fruit (and yuck-o, frui...
Last year I had a self proclaimed wine snob in our Volcano Vineyards Tasting Lounge who snorted when I told him our 2004 Syrah was a “cool climate” Syrah. He dismissed me as “spinning” the marketing on our wine. He was obviously an idiot, as that wine won a double gold medal at the Wine ...
Let’s debunk some myths right off the bat (and don’t you love that word “debunk” - like you are kicking someone out of your bed…) Myth #1: Wine people are snotty. I admit some wine people are snotty, although you will find that the snotty ones usually aren’t in the industry and they tend to get mo...
Yes, it is true, Volcano Vineyards wine is sublime, it really is the best wine you will ever drink. And during 2008 we found that most folks agreed with us, so in the Tasting Lounge we severely scaled back the wines we offered from other small producers. But I have to admit that after dr...
