We had a wonderful evening enjoying some A.S. Kiken (literally as* kicking) wines from Reverie Winery at our recent wine dinner. Starting the evening with the Reverie Roussanne 2010 introduced our guests to a varietal they may not have been familiar with. This Roussanne was fresh, vibrant, aromatic and full of fresh fruit flavors. A great way to wake up the taste buds! The Roussanne grape is indigenous to Southern France and is one of the whites that is used for blending into the Chateauneuf du Papes. We enjoyed an interesting red named A. S. Kiken nicknamed for the son, Andrew. S. Kiken, ha...

Tim was recently featured on the front cover of Wine Spectator Magazine, along with the headline: “One Wine, One Purpose.” Tim explained that the Continuum name was chose...

 Whether it’s a birthday, anniversary, engagement or even a wedding, toasting the occasion with a special bottle of wine or champagne can add a thoughtful, memorable touch. Several years ago, I asked our own Terri Baldwin, sommelier and wine director, to research and help me find a special 1983 Taittinger Champagne that we bought and held for a number of years here at the Inn. Why that vintage? It was the birth year of my son and I knew that someday I would want to have a special bottle of Champagne to open and enjoy with him on his wedding day. That milestone is just around the corner....
