Halloween is over, November is here, and that means one thing: we can all start gorging ourselves on pie! This is one of my favorite times of year because pie comes front and center in the dessert world. At other times of the year, most people think of cake, cookies, and ice cream when they want dessert, but in November it. Is. All. Pie. Pumpkin, lemon meringue, coconut cream, pecan, apple, cherry, buttermilk, you can have any flavor you want, any crust you want, and as much of it as you want!

Today I wanted to spend a little time talking about acidity in wine. It’s a word that gets thrown around a lot but when I was first starting out drinking wine I really didn’t know what it meant. I always just took people’s word for it that wine was high or low in acidity but didn’t understand how that affected its taste or how it paired with food. So if you feel this way but haven’t wanted to admit it to anyone, we’re going to clear things up today.
