Family Affair

The Finkelsteins and Judd’s Hill at Martine.

By Ted Scheffler
POSTED // Feb 24,2014 - When Art Finkelstein passed away all too young in 2010, the wine world lost one of its most beloved and innovative characters. Art was a man of many talents: architect, maker of ceramics, musician, chef and, yes, winemaker. His winemaking career began at home. Most people have cars in their garages; Art’s son Judd, for whom Judd’s Hill winery is named, says that he grew up with winemaking equipment in his.

Deer Valley Dining

Craft burgers, schnitzel, Raclette and more at Deer Valley eateries

By Ted Scheffler
POSTED // Feb 18,2014 - Where upscale dining is concerned, Deer Valley boasts an embarrassment of riches, with venues such as The Glitretind, Royal Street Cafe, Cena, Apex, Seafood Buffet, The Mariposa and others. This ski season, I’ve visited three of Deer Valley’s best dining destinations: one old, one new and one somewhere in-between.

Gourmandise The Bakery

SLC's Gourmandise offers much more than baked goods

By Ted Scheffler
POSTED // Feb 10,2014 - The admonishment to “stop and smell the roses” may be a well-worn cliché, but it’s also often worthy advice. Maybe “stop and smell the baked goods” is better advice, especially when you’re in the vicinity of Gourmandise The Bakery.

Bibi Graetz Wines

By Ted Scheffler
POSTED // Feb 10,2014 - Recently, I had the pleasure of attending a Bibi Graetz wine dinner at Franck’s restaurant, hosted by the chefs and owners of Franck’s and Tuscany, along with wine expert Marco Stevanoni. Stevanoni—who represents Italy’s Bibi Graetz wines in the United States—is a fascinating and talented guy.

Lovers' Libations

Save or splurge on sexy sips for Valentine's Day

By Ted Scheffler
POSTED // Feb 7,2014 - Whether I’m going out to dine on Valentine’s Day or staying at home for a private dinner, I always like to toast my lovely wife with a sip of something sexy and special. That doesn’t always translate into expensive, although it could. There are plenty of value libations to enjoy on Valentine’s Day—or any other time—as well as stratospherically priced ones. Here are some of my favorites.

Tables for Two

Where to wine & dine with your Valentine

By Ted Scheffler
POSTED // Feb 4,2014 - As I say every year at this time: You and your honey don’t have to splurge and dine out on Valentine’s Day. There are plenty of other options. Maybe there’s no honey in the picture at all, and you’d prefer to stay at home with a big bowl of caviar all to yourself, watching 9 1/2 Weeks for the 18th time. There’s nothing wrong with that. Or an excellent Valentine’s Day celebration might entail nothing more than, in the words of the Persian poet Omar Khayyám, “A jug of wine, a loaf of bread, and thou.”
