CFW Monthly Roundup: September 2007

Image from Photo.netAutumn is one of our favorite times of year, and we really had a great time covering wine in September. We found some great products, including an antler wine rack, a scrimshaw opener, and a wine flights set, and we also stumbled across some wines and wineries we enjoyed immensely. What better way to open a new month than by looking back fondly at last month? We can't think of one!

CFW Monthly Roundup: June 2007

OK, so we didn't get an iPhone in June, nor did we even mention. We might be the only website that didn't. You win some you lose some, eh? What we did do is drink wine. We drank a lot of wine.

We discovered how to make Bonny Doon Blagueur show its true jokester heritage. We covered all sorts of celebrity wines - did you know Madonna's dad is making one? We also covered some sweet gadgets, figured out how to invest in wine, and even learned how to read your wine horoscope. Maybe you should call your friends on your fancy new iPhone and tell them about it.

CFW Monthly Roundup: May 2007

arty-wine-pour.jpgMay, May, May. 'Twas a good month, what with the weather warming up and our discovering some great new wines. So what did we get up to over the course of May, you ask? All sorts of cool stuff, from celebrity wines (Fess Parker) to discovering some new wines (Mourvedre, Bonarda, Carmenere) to discovering a bunch of wines under $15.

What did we have to say about such things, you ask? Read on after the jump, friends, read on after the jump.

CFW Monthly Roundup: April 2007

flowerglass.jpgAaaah, spring. The time when a young man's (or woman's) fancy turns to wine. Wait, how's that different from the rest of the year? Anyway, April was a good month for us here - we discovered a great book about pairing wine with food, found a contest to name a Winery in Washington, got the results of the 2007 Wino sign awards, and reviewed our new favorite Chiante. Can you get any better than that?

CFW Monthly Roundup: March 2007

We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves in March, and we found all sorts of cool advice and info that warmed the cockles of our hearts. We found tips on how to make your own wine, advice on how to find wine at bottom of the barrel prices without sacrificing quality, and we also found a great idea for how to get the horrifying taste out of corked wine.

Just because our colleagues over at Liquor Snob get to carouse and drink green beer doesn't mean we get jealous - not in the slightest - because we get to go to bed every night knowing we learned a little something about wine. And no, it never even crossed our minds to try to make green wine for St. Patrick's Day. Not even once.

CFW Monthly Roundup: January '07

Full Frontal WineWelcome to 2007, wine lovers! We did our best to make January as interesting as possible, and we've found all sorts of great stuff to get your through these (more or less) cold winter months. Not only did we find all sorts of wine steals you can try to find at your local shop, we also uncovered some interesting gizmos and services, including a portable wine thermometer, and a mobile search service so you can compare wine prices through your phone. Plus, we did a crossover with the boys over at Liquor Snob discussing Death in the Afternoon, a combination of two of our favorite things - wine and absinthe. Drink and be merry!

CFW Monthly Roundup: October 2006

Wine CostumeThe month of October is traditionally a scary time, what with Halloween falling right at the end. That and the fact that the World Series happens in October - here in Boston the only non-scary October we've had in a really long while was in 2004. But that doesn't really have anything to do with what we're here to discuss, which is wine! We found all sorts of wine deals this month, we checked out boxed wine from a company called JuiceBox, and we found some great Halloween-related wine stuff, including Dracula wines and tips for pairing wine with candy. Now that's some good stuff - find the full list of stories after the jump.

CFW Monthly Roundup: September 2006

Wine PourAlas, September has come and gone, and all we have to look forward to this winter is cuddling up under a warm blanket with a couple bottles of wine. Oh wait - that doesn't seem so bad actually.

In September we checked out some swanky gifts like sommelier glasses and a crystal decanter, as well as offering advice including pairing notes for wine and cheeseburgers and how to order wine in a restaurant.

Also check out the hubbub over accusations that Americans allow too much alcohol in their wines and read our thoughts on bum wines like Thunderbird and MD 20/20. Read on for all the story highlights from last month, and bottoms up!

CFW Monthly Roundup: August 2006

Wine PicnicWe've just wrapped up our first month of tenure here at Cheap Fun Wines and the first thing we noticed as we compiled the month's stories is that we didn't do enough tastings and reviews. Believe us, that will end soon enough. What we did do was find all sorts of stories about cool wine products, lay some sweet ideas for discounted wines on you, and write a little expose on Sideshow Wines. That'll have to do you for August. Read on to see the full list of August's stories and we're looking forward to seeing more in September.

CFW Monthly Roundup: July 2006

Uncorking a BottleWe're uncorking a new era here at Cheap Fun Wines, and as we try to round up the stories that were posted to the site in July, it gives us time to look ahead to the future. Of course we think the biggest news of the past month is that we're now under new management, but we're not letting that get to our heads. Instead, we're thinking about all the great wine products, news, advice and reviews we're going to be able to bring you in the coming months, and we hope you like the new twists and turns we take on the site.

Let us know how we're doing, give us advice, send us story ideas or tell us about your favorite cheap fun wine at news at
