At a time when most people's New Year's resolutions are beginning to falter, we here at Parched No More are looking to keep the momentum going by suggesting plenty of guilt-free, low-calorie beverages. On the spirits side of things, we've been on a kick with

We've been on a boxed-wine roll as of late, for sure! Those of you who have been asking me about various boxed wines have undoubtedly received your fair share of information these past few weeks. For those of you looking for more traditional, bottled information, do

I've been getting into boxed wine more and more lately. If I'm being honest, it's the cost — the value I get out of a 5 liter box of "good" or "okay" wine has tremendous sway since I could easily spend nearly double the amount on something

Review: Peter Vella Chardonnay

Peter Vella
Chardonnay, California
$16.99/5L

We're going to deviate a little bit this week and, instead of focusing on reputation or historic appeal, we're going to take a look at stigma and class. Wine is of course (and has almost always been) one of those things that attracts so-called "connoisseurs" to the

Alamos, Chardonnay, 2012

Alamos
Argentina, Chardonnay, 2012
$10.99

It's been quite some time since we've sampled the inviting and humbling characteristics of Argentinian wine. The wine from the vineyards of one of South America's great regions are ripe with incredibly complex flavor profiles and quality that is rarely matched. Alamos is named for the poplar

Ruffino
Italy, Pinot Grigio, 2013
$13.99

It's become an interestingly white fall and I can't say I'm terribly disappointed. As a wine lover who typically fancies himself a nice bold red during the blustery months of autumn, I've grown fond of kicking back with a crisp white here and there. There's nothing wrong

Concha y Toro
Chile, Chardonnay, 2013
$7.99

While we may not be heading off the beaten path, our taste of Chilean wine this week is a slight bit different than those in previous adventures. Instead of seeking out a bold and invigorating red varietal, we're looking at a Chardonnay. Not a typical

Smoking Loon
California, Pinot Grigio, 2013
$10.99


A delightfully different style of white grape varietal, the Pinot Grigio is known for splendid fruit flavors and exquisite drinkability. To be sure, this isn't a wine I particularly want to dabble in; however, I've recently been looking to branch out,

California, Chardonnay, 2012

When you find a wine producer you thoroughly enjoy, it's only natural to pick up each and every bottle of theirs you can get your paws on, right? I really hope that's the case, as I've simply fallen

Smoking Loon

California, Chardonnay, 2013

$10.99

Once again we are taking a look at an interesting Chardonnay; it's just been that sort of a summer, I suppose. Smoking Loon's "Steelbird" Unoaked Chardonnay comes to us by way of California's famed Napa valley wine country; an area of land so perfect

$24.99

Italian wine seemingly lives in its own little world, with its own set of rules, and its own agenda. Perhaps unsurprisingly, I've never met an Italian wine I didn't like. We can chalk that up to chance, or we can take it as

California, Cabernet Sauvignon, 2012

$12.99

Cabernet Sauvignon from Napa valley is hard to beat — even the bottom shelf varieties are usually very drinkable. Indeed, as one of the world's most renowned wine varietals, Cabernet Sauvignon enjoys a level of fame that is both well deserved and well exploited. But we're
