In the Spirit: Harvest Time!

By: HashtagWV / Category: Blog, In The Spirit, Ron Magliochetti

As verasion (pronounced Vay-ray-zoN) ends, […]

In the Spirit: A World of Wine Undiscovered.

By: HashtagWV / Category: Blog, In The Spirit, Ron Magliochetti, The Greenbrier

A recent trip to South Africa was part of my own discovery in the world of wine.  While I have tasted many of the wines from country, nothing compares to the experience of getting the lay of the land, meeting the people, tasting the food and of course the wine.  These experiences help so much […]

In the Spirit: What would the Bunny bring you to Drink?

By: HashtagWV / Category: Blog, In The Spirit, Robert Aquilino

In the Spirit of celebrating the arrival of spring, Easter, and the Chocolate Festival, let’s play a game I’d like to call “What would the Bunny bring you to drink?” Yes, I know that the Easter Bunny is all about kids playing, egg hunting and coloring, and hopping around doing cartwheels on the grass!

In the Spirit: St Patrick’s Day. The Father, the Son, & the Holy Spirits of Ireland

By: HashtagWV / Category: Blog, In The Spirit, Kathryn Flynn

The Feast of St. Patrick or as it is commonly known now “St. Patrick’s Day” falls on March 17th every year and has more than a small reputation for being a day filled with drinking, debauchery, and more drinking.
