The Reality of Winemaking: Who Can Make the Best Bottle of Wine?

I loves me some wine, loves me some helping people understand more about wine, and loves me some television (and yeah, even some reality programming); but when I first heard about Best Bottle—a potential winemaking reality show—I was a bit skeptical. Aside from enjoying a glass or two of wine while watching my favorite guilty pleasure programming on the magic… Read more →

Where the Hell You At, Stub?

  The simple answer: at this very moment, I’m sitting on a balcony in front of my computing machine overlooking Florida’s Gulf Coast. But you want to know more cosmically where I’m at (or rather, where I’ve been) and what’s happening at CorkEnvy, don’t you? A fair question that deserves an answer… To be honest, most of my “work time”… Read more →

Suit and Tie, Sequester Style!

  “Suit and Tie, Sequester Style” is the latest video from CorkEnvy Productions. There’s nothing about wine (although I did sip a glass or two while writing, filming, and editing this piece).

May The 4th Be With You!

So today is Star Wars Day.  Clever, huh? Now I’m as big a fan of the franchise as any other guy (or girl) who grew up with the original film trilogy.  I haven’t read (or tried to write) any fan-fic or anything, but I still like the films.  I prefer the first three episodes (IV, V, and VI) to the… Read more →

Wine Is Scarier Than Boobs!

Wine is scarier than boobs?  Yup.  Read On… Raise your hand if you’re a bit intimidated by wine.  Yeah, I see you in the back with your hand barely at top-of-your-head level.  It’s O.K.  We’re all there or have been there. Since I started CorkEnvy a little over a year ago, I’ve noticed that a lot of people are afraid… Read more →
