Château cash flow

Burgeoning local wineries target Oklahoma palates and score big with sweet and semisweet wines.


Food and Drink Features

Charles Martin
Wine shops and vineyards might be sprouting up all across the state, but Oklahoma remains a tricky place to make a living in the industry, as evidenced by the recent loss of Grape Ranch.

Vino-sophy

Abe Schoener, one of the most divisive names in winemaking, was in Oklahoma in April to introduce to his remarkable wines.


Food and Drink Features

Greg Horton
Abe Schoener is a philosopher — a real one. He holds a doctorate in ancient philosophy, studied Heraclitus after going to school to study Homer, and has managed to make a name for himself in wine, not philosophy.

French summer

The new French rosés have arrived just in time to help you cool off for summer.


Food and Drink Features

Greg Horton
The Tavel region of France makes one kind of wine: rosé. The winemakers there have been making it for more than a millennia, and their expertise shows in every bottle.

Wine words

Terry Theise has spent much of his life singing the praises of Riesling in a language we can all appreciate.

Greg Horton
Terry Theise makes wine nerds gush. Jane Black, writing for The Washington Post, introduced him thus: “If you like wine and don’t mind name-dropping, here’s the name to know: Terry Theise.”

Napa for Papa

Napa Valley still produces some of the best wines in the world, and Father’s Day is a good reason to rediscover old favorites.


Food and Drink Features

Greg Horton
“Don’t ever buy me anything I need as a present.” That bit of wisdom is actually from my wife. It’s a maxim I now live by when birthdays, anniversaries, and Christmases come round. It’s entirely apropos for Father’s Day.

Our sister city up the Turner Turnpike offers some delicious options for a weekend wine excursion.


Food and Drink Features

Greg Horton
For some of you this will be an indefensible position, but in all fairness it needs to be said: Tulsa is a cool city. Some already know that; some will never believe it.
