The other white

Americans buy more Sauvignon Blanc than any white besides Chardonnay, and this old favorite is undergoing a transformation.


Food and Drink Features

Greg Horton
Sauvignon Blanc is second only to Chardonnay in acres of white grapes planted in California, but the Golden State hasn’t determined the style of this American favorite in the last few years.

“Hey, look at me!” These are the new kids on the block, and they need our support! One good thing about restaurants opening — other than offering darn good food, of course — is more job opportunities in the hospitality industry.

Whiskey business

It takes a sure hand to handle aggressive whiskeys when mixing cocktails, but a little knowledge can help tame even the boldest bourbons.


Food and Drink Features

Charles Martin
Vodka and light rums are no-brainers when in a mixing mood because the neutral spirits can be thrown into just about any kind of drink and quickly disappear under a sea of soda and juice.
