Welcome back Wine and Dime listeners. In this episode, I welcome the Honorable Judge John Ninfo, II.

John C. Ninfo, II

Judge Ninfo was a bankruptcy judge for the United States bankruptcy court, Western District of New York. He was appointed to the bench in 1992 and served as Chief Judge from January 1, 2000 until December 31, 2006. After 2006 he served as a judge until December 31, 2011.

Education and early life

Judge Ninfo attended Georgetown University for his Bachelors degree in 1968 and Boston University for his J.D. in 1973. From 1968 until 1970 he served in the United States Marine Corps, becoming Chief Legal Clerk to the Judge Advocate General of the 4th Marine Air Wing.

Career

From 1970 until 1992 he engaged in private law practice with the Rochester firm of Underberg and Kessler, specializing in creditors' rights and bankruptcy law.

CARE program

In 2002, Ninfo founded the Credit Abuse Resistance Education (CARE) program. It is a personal finance literacy education program in which bankruptcy judges, trustees, attorneys and court staff go into high schools and colleges and meet with businesses, faith groups and veterans in an effort to educate them on staying out of debt and financial responsibility.

CARE - Credit Abuse Resistance Education

CARE's mission is to educate individuals, with a focus on young adults, on the responsible use of credit and the fundamentals of financial literacy, as well as the potential consequences of poor money management and credit abuse.

Founded in 2002 by now-retired US Bankruptcy Court Judge John C. Ninfo II, Credit Abuse Resistance Education (CARE) was created to teach high school and college students about the responsible use of credit and the consequences of credit card abuse. Judge Ninfo grew the organization to have a national presence by helping other bankruptcy professionals start their own CARE programs across the nation.

Upon his retirement, Judge Ninfo turned CARE over to the American Bankruptcy Institute in Alexandria, VA, where it expanded and developed into a nationally branded organization. In 2016, CARE received its 501(c)(3) status from the IRS and has emerged as a national nonprofit community service organization dedicated to inspiring smart financial-decision making by students and young adults.

Now, 15 years after its creation, our organization recruits and trains professionals in the bankruptcy and other financial services fields, who are then invited to schools and other venues to teach the fundamentals of personal financial management.

WHY LOANBUDDY

Finally, a real service to help you conquer your student loan debt.

There are over 100 different options when it comes to student loans. From different loan types, to different repayment plans, to forgiveness options, to more complex things like deferment and forbearance.

It’s confusing.

For years, borrowers have had to rely on the help from the loan servicers - which if you’ve watched the news lately - might not be the best.

And every year, as Congress tries to make things better, they just end up making things more confusing - and even scaring people with threats to end certain programs.

The fact is, student loans are confusing, scary, challenging, and more.

LoanBuddy is redefining what it means to get out of student loan debt.

Here’s what you get with LoanBuddy

  • Know The Lowest Repayment Plan For You - Free

  • Stop having to DIY your loans with LoanBuddy Plus

  • Get help for the life of your loans with LoanBuddy Lifetime

  • Connect with financial planners that really understand student loan debt


Malbec-TopPic.jpg

Malbec is a purple grape variety used in making red wine. The grapes tend to have an inky dark color and robust tannins, and are known as one of the six grapes allowed in the blend of red Bordeaux wine. The French plantations of Malbec are now found primarily in Cahors in South West France. It is increasingly celebrated as an Argentine varietal wine and is being grown around the world.

Called Malbec in Bordeaux, Auxerrois or Côte Noir in Cahors, and Pressac in other places, the grape became less popular in Bordeaux after 1956 when frost killed off 75% of the crop. Despite Cahors being hit by the same frost, which devastated the vineyards, Malbec was replanted and continued to be popular in that area where it was mixed with Merlot and Tannat to make dark, full-bodied wines, and more recently has been made into 100% Malbec varietal wines.

The Malbec grape is a thick-skinned grape and needs more sun and heat than either Cabernet Sauvignon or Merlot to mature. It ripens mid-season and can bring very deep color, ample tannin, and a particular plum-like flavor component to add complexity to claret blends. Sometimes, especially in its traditional growing regions, it is not trellised and cultivated as bush vines (the goblet system). The wines are rich, dark and juicy.

As a varietal, Malbec creates a rather inky red (or violet), intense wine, so it is also commonly used in blends, such as with Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon to create the red French Bordeaux claret blend. The grape is blended with Cabernet Francand Gamay in some regions such as the Loire Valley. Other wine regions use the grape to produce Bordeaux-style blends. The varietal is sensitive to frost and has a proclivity to shatter or coulure.

Wine and Dime Episode 73 - with Whealthcare Planning Co-Founder Chris Heye

In this episode of Wine and Dime, I get the opportunity to sit down with a co-founder of Whealthcare Planning, Dr. Chris Heye. We had a great conversation about the cost of health care and the impact it can have on your wealth, especially as you age. The inspiration that led him to being a part of this organization, and the passion he has is not something you want to miss. So, pop open a bottle of your favorite wine, or a nice Red Bordeaux, as Chris suggests, and enjoy the show!!

Our story

We are a mission-driven company dedicated to helping individuals and families more successfully plan for the financial and emotional challenges associated with aging.

We provide a unique cloud-based platform offering a suite of innovative tools and educational materials developed in cooperation with thought leaders in geriatrics, psychiatry, and financial planning. Our approach is based in part on a clinical study and related work conducted in the psychiatry department at the Massachusetts General Hospital.

Our platform focuses on preparing individuals and families for four major life transitions that virtually all older adults confront: when to turn over financial decision-making, when and how to transition health care decision-making, when to change living arrangements, and when to quit driving.

chris-whealthcare.jpg

Chris Heye, PhD - Co-Founder

Dr Heye is the Co-Founder of Whealthcare Planning LLC and Founder and CEO of Cogniscient, Inc. and has extensive experience starting and running technology companies. After confronting dementia first hand in his own family and witnessing elder financial abuse in friends, he decided not enough was being done to protect the financial well-being of older adults. He co-designed and managed the clinical study “Cognitive Function as a Proxy of Financial Decision Making in Older Primary Care Adults” at the Massachusetts General Hospital which investigated the behavioral and cognitive underpinnings of financial decision-making. He is a member of the Financial Planning Association's (FPA) FinTech Advisory Group. He received his BA from Wesleyan University and PhD from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

Burgundy wine 

Burgundy Wine is wine made in the Burgundy region in eastern France in the valleys and slopes west of the Saône, a tributary of the Rhône. The most famous wines produced here—those commonly referred to as "Burgundies"—are dry red wines made from Pinot noir grapes and white wines made from Chardonnay grapes.

Red and white wines are also made from other grape varieties, such as Gamay and Aligoté, respectively. Small amounts of rosé and sparkling wines are also produced in the region. Chardonnay-dominated Chablis and Gamay-dominated Beaujolais are formally part of the Burgundy wine region, but wines from those subregions are usually referred to by their own names rather than as "Burgundy wines".

Burgundy has a higher number of appellations d'origine contrôlée (AOCs) than any other French region, and is often seen as the most terroir-conscious of the French wine regions. The various Burgundy AOCs are classified from carefully delineated Grand Cru vineyards down to more non-specific regional appellations. The practice of delineating vineyards by their terroir in Burgundy goes back to medieval times, when various monasteries played a key role in developing the Burgundy wine industry.

Wine and Dime Episode 72 - Forward Thinking with Sue Gruber

Hey Wine and Dime listeners, welcome back for another episode, and thank you for listening. Today’s guest is Sue Gruber. Sue is a retired teacher who has started a new business called Forward Thinking Home Solutions. Forward thinking was born out of the struggles that she came across while remodeling her home, and thinking about her future. When you listen to how Sue became a certified aging specialist you’ll really respect the time and commitment that she has put into this encore career. So sit back, open your favorite beverage and enjoy the show.

Sue+Gruber.jpg

Sue Gruber

Forward Thinking Home Solutions

forward.thinking.homes@gmail.com

Sue Gruber's career choices and passion for remodeling and design naturally led her to earn the National Association of Home Builder's (NAHB) designation of Certified Aging-in-Place Specialist (CAPS). This subsequently led her to take NAHB continuing education classes for Universal Design/Build and Train-the-Trainer status.  

Years ago, as Pastoral Associate for the All Saints Parish in Corning, NY, Sue visited parishioners in nursing and assisted-living facilities and found that many of the residents were unable to go home only because their homes were unfit. This prompted her to renovate her own home, designing all of the changes and doing the majority of the renovations herself with the counsel of contractors and qualified advisors.  Intuitively, she used Universal Design elements throughout. Afterwards, she was encouraged to earn CAPS designation to help educate others in our area about Aging-in-Place and Universal Design.  She is passionate about educating others so that they can make good forward-thinking decisions when remodeling or building their home.

Sue is now a Licensed Approved NAHB Instructor and offers NAHB CAPS and Universal Design/Build courses for contractors, health professionals, designers, architects, and anyone interested in modifying or building a home.  Teaching these courses has been one of the most rewarding experiences for Sue, as it brings her in contact with dedicated experts from many fields related to aging in place.  Their stories are awe-inspiring. The sharing of experiences and expertise makes the class a well-rounded learning experience for everyone involved.  By the end of the three days, friendships have been formed and networks have been built.

Wine and Dime Episode 69 - Coaching for Fiscal Fitness with Kerrie and Amy

In this episode of Wine and Dime, I got to travel down to Oklahoma to visit one of our financial planners, Kerrie Beene. While here we were able to celebrate Kerrie getting her CFP and visit a great winery here in Oklahoma, “Girls gone Wine”. We also jumped in our affiliation with Fiscal Fitness Club, and how the coaching goes on there. It was a great talk, and if you are wondering what the Fiscal Fitness Club was all about, than this is the podcast for you! Be sure to rate and subscribe and thanks for listening!

Kerrie Beene, CFP®

FINANCIAL COACH

My own personal financial journey has taught me that while they're important, life is more than numbers. Finding joy in the journey towards personal goals is key. A smart plan with a lot of heart goes a long way to keeping daily financial decisions in line with your long term goals. I graduated from Southeastern Oklahoma State University with a degree in Business Administration  and hold a certificate in Financial Planning from Wake Forest University.  I passed the CFP exam in November of 2016 and I'm currently working towards my service hours. I began my career in financial planning by starting my own company, Beene Financial Planning. Having the desire to work as a team, I then joined Irvine Wealth Planning Strategies. My roots in Southeast Oklahoma  have given me great insight on the need for financial planning that is not just investment focused, but also on all the other financial planning decisions.  I enjoy, and work best, with those who are ready to take control of their finances and use their money to fulfill their goals and dreams.

Fiscal Fitness Club of America

Our Philosophy

Fiscal Fitness Clubs of America believes that the purpose of money is to first create financial security and then to accomplish your goals, while matching your values. We believe that joy in life can’t be separated from money, and that reducing financial stress through the management of cash flow and assets can add more joy to your life than owning “stuff,” or buying experiences at the expense of your financial security. We also believe that “knowing” and “doing” are not the same. Our goal is to give you the knowledge and tools to manage your financial life, so you get what you want from your labor and money. We are all about empowering you, not about you needing us. Our goal is that, at the end of our relationship, you will have confidence in your financial path and feel comfortable knowing what you need to do to manage your financial resources and advisors. That doesn’t mean you might not prefer to delegate some or all of the tasks to us or someone else. Whether or not our relationship continues, our goal is that you will have confidence in your ability to make informed decisions.

There is an important consequence of this philosophy. You will be committing your time and energy on a regular basis to:

  • Gathering and sharing data

  • Completing assignments, such as meeting with your insurance agent or organizing your paperwork

  • Committing to becoming comfortable with technology as a tool to manage your finances

  • Acting upon mutually agreed recommendations

Hello again Wine and Dime listeners. Today’s episode is one in which is a little deeper than usual.  I had the opportunity to sit down with Brandy Walker. Brandy is young woman who shares her story of strength and how she recovered from abuse.  She shares in how it influenced her life with a decision to become a therapist, to be able to help others overcome their own similar struggles.

Throwing Light with Brandy Walker

The opposite of throwing shade, TL is explores the intersection of spirituality and mental health. With a hefty dose of metaphysics and a whole lot of vulnerability, TL asks questions like: What does it mean to co-create with the universe? Does magic exist? What can ordinary people do about the great injustices of our time? What does living a meaningful life look like? Can we make coffee a food group? Host Brandy Walker attempts to answer these questions, and start new conversations about old paradigms, all while being her awkward, adorable self.

THE WINEMAKERS’ WINERY

We used to be a simple farm, growing raspberries & grapes. Then, we took it a step further; we acquired Jensen Juice and began to offer fresh grape juice to home winemakers. Before we knew it, our passion grew into the Fulkerson Winery you know & love today. We believe progression is natural, and we are proud to have become the winemakers’ winery.


Rose_Syrah1.png

SYRAH ROSÉ

Our 2.88 acres of Syrah planted in 2014, is one of the largest plantings in New York of this early ripening, vigorous variety from the northern Rhône. The site we chose to cultivate this variety is on the furthest down-slope of our original 1805 farm. The site is well drained with deep Howard series soils. This site is steep and protected from strong winds, which also allows for good air drainage, protecting the site from both high and low temperatures throughout the year. Being a mid-ripening variety, we are able to select optimal flavor and sugar levels a little better than with some of our more traditional red varieties which ripen at the end of the season.
Exhibiting flavors of berry and red fruit, this delightfully balanced rosé will be sure to please. Pair with cheese, salads and good company. Perfect for any occasion!

Wine and Dime Episode 66 - Planning for Your Care Needs with Jill MacNeil

Hello again Wine and Dime listeners! In this episode, I had the opportunity to speak with Jill MacNeil. And we talked about Risk… more specifically the transferring of Risk. Jill is the Long Term Care Specialist with LLIS, which objective is to recommend the best solutions for your clients based on their individual needs, using low-load permanent life insurance and annuities when possible. I’ve often used LLIS when recommending coverage for a client of mine. This was an informative episode that I’m sure you all will enjoy as much as I did!

Words to Live By: Life is 10% what happens to you and 90% how you react to it.”- Charles R. Swindoll

Her reactions are pretty good. Jill spends most of her spare time on the tennis court and the golf course. And she spends 90% of her time in Tampa and 10% of it in Canada, where she's from and where her family remains (except her husband and two daughters).

Jill was one of the first LLIS team members hired and has worked with just about every solution we offer clients. Since 2009 she's been our long term care insurance specialist and is great at working with clients to be sure they are 100% sure what they are purchasing and why.

Lakewood Winery History

In 1951, the Stamp family moved to Lakewood Farm, a run-down peach and apple orchard on the west side of Seneca Lake. The next spring, they started planting grapes. The original grapes were those favored by the large wineries and grape juice companies. In the mid-80’s the family diversified to add some new varieties, with the hope of someday using them to make their own wines.

In 1988, Monty and Beverly Stamp and their children pressed the grapes for their first vintage.

A Vision Realized

Lakewood Vineyards Winery opened to the public in June 1989 with 7 varieties of wine, made from estate-grown grapes from their 45 acres of vineyards.

Today, with 80 acres of vineyards and 3 Stamp family generations working together, the winery produces a diverse selection of wines. Their dedicated and talented team prides themselves on offering Finger Lakes wines of exceptional quality and value.

Wine and Dime Episode 63 - Supporting the Apples of the World with Breanna Reish

In this episode of Wine and Dime, I chat with my dear friend Breanna Reish. Breanna is a certified financial planner with Wealth of Confidence, which is a fee only firm located in California. She also hosts her own podcast called “One Million Apples”. In this episode we talk about things we are truly passionate about… teachers! So sit on back, pop open your favorite wine and enjoy the show!

"My true purpose as a financial planner is to create an inviting environment where you are encouraged to discuss your money without judgment, to learn about your investments in a way you enjoy and become more comfortable managing your money with confidence"

I grew up in a family that lived with what we needed and didn't have a lot left over for luxury. At the age of 14, I realized that making money meant that I would have the opportunity to buy what I wanted and do what I wanted so I started working and saving. Knowing I had money in the bank for when I would need it gave me great confidence and provided a sense of safety and security. My passion for sharing these core principles with others led me to my role as a financial planner, but I was wearing rose-colored glasses

While I was here to guide and educate, the industry was all about selling and products. It was an experience that was miserable for a lot of people, including myself. As I watched this process I could see how many people felt that most discussions revolved around product and investments and left out true desires and goals. This was totally unacceptable to me. I knew that the financial world was confusing to navigate, left out strategy outside of investments, and felt like a used-car lot instead of a true fiduciary environment.

Wealth of Confidence was created after 9 years of working with clients. It was finally time to combine my passion for planning with my purpose to break the mold and offer a great experience for you.

One Million Apples Podcast

The Mission & The Name

Every day, across the United States, teachers are taken advantage of financially. People are using deceptive practices to work with you, the people that educate our children. They are not only going after your hard earned money they are robbing you of your trust and confidence in your overall financial well-being. This has to stop!

While we would love more regulation, it does not guarantee an overall change. As you know EDUCATION has the potential to do great things. That is how this passion project started, to teach teachers all about their money.

Heavy stuff, right?

That is why we decided to lighten it up a bit and touch on other fun topics, trends, lifestyle, career issues and more. 

Why One Million Apples?

There are between 4-5 million teachers in the K-12 and higher education system across the United States. Our mission is to impact the lives of at least ONE million.

You would not be the first to think that is crazy, we are a little overwhelmed with that number as well. That is why we are asking for your help to accomplish this mission. If you hear, read or watch something helpful on this site, please tell your friends. Also, let us know that you're here; we'd love to measure our progress along the way.

Decoy Sonoma County Cabernet Sauvignon

Since 1978, Duckhorn Vineyards has been exploring the character and complexity of Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. Drawing on our winemaking team’s expertise working with this varietal, Decoy Sonoma County Cabernet Sauvignon offers a rich and appealing expression of the varietal crafted to be ready upon release.

WINE PROFILE

Production Notes

Varietal Content: 88% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Merlot, 2% Petit Verdot, 1% Petite Sirah, 1% Cabernet Franc; Winemaking: 90% French oak, 10% American oak, 40% New, 60% Neutral

Winemaker Notes

Displaying the lushness and balance that define great Sonoma County Cabernet Sauvignon, this inviting wine features layers of blackberry and black cherry, along with notes of mocha, star anise and spearmint. On the palate, the juicy, bright fruit flavors are framed by rich, refined tannins that carry the wine to a satisfying finish.

Production

The 2016 growing season began with generous winter rains, followed by a spring and summer marked by moderate temperatures and abundant sunshine. Like several recent vintages, the 2016 harvest came early, delivering exquisite quality grapes. After the modest size crop of 2015, 2016 saw a welcome return to average yields. Overall, the 2016 whites show an ideal combination of lovely richness and excellent natural acidity, while the reds are lush and complex, with beautiful color and concentration.

Wine and Dime Episode 61 - Earth Day Made Easy with Anna Reger

In honor of Earth Day, I had the opportunity to speak with Anna Reger. Anna is a professor at Alfred State College, and teaches accounting, which is near and dear to my heart. In this episode of Wine and Dime, Anna and I explore different ways to be more eco-friendly and she shares her husbands Gluten Free Pizza recipe (Full recipe below). This was a great conversation and some great tips. So pop open a bottle of your favorite wine and enjoy this fantastic episode.

Lakewood Full Monty Riesling

While the nose is subdued, the palate of this semidry Riesling offers loads of fresh peach and yellow-cherry flavors. It's crisply balanced with fresh lime acidity and a brisk revitalizing finish.

Riesling Wine

Riesling is a light-skinned, aromatic grape of German origin which is – if the majority of top wine critics are to be believed – the world's finest white wine grape variety.

For many, the claim above may seem at odds with the sea of chaptalized, low-quality wine exported from Germany in the late 20th Century. In truth, very little of that infamous wine was Riesling at all, but instead higher-yielding grapes such as Müller-Thurgau and Silvaner), but the reputation has nonetheless stuck. Riesling has also been stereotyped as just a sweet grape, used only to make sticky wines. But while botrytized Rieslings are among the finest sweet wines in the world, the majority of global Riesling wines are either dry or off-dry.

McCarthy’s Gluten Free Pizza

  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees.

  2. Mix your warm water, sugar, and yeast. Let it sit for a minute to dissolve.

  3. In a separate bowl, mix together flour and salt.  Next add the olive oil, egg, vinegar, and yeast mixture. You can use an electric mixer, but we just have a hand mixer and that works fine.

  4. Mix on low for 1 minute.

  5. Oil your spatula and hands, then use them to get the dough in to a ball.

  6. Spread the dough on to an oiled heavy duty cookie sheet.

  7. Bake for 8 minutes or so, long enough for the dough to be firm, but not golden brown.

  8. Remove the sheet from the oven and add your toppings. Then bake it for another 8 minutes (or until its crispy to your liking.)

  9. Pour a glass of wine and enjoy!

Notes:  

-The dough is sticky, make sure your hands are oiled when handling the dough and oil the cookie sheet first.

-The Bob’s Red Mill Gluten Free 1-to-1 is key!  This is a flour blend that can be used as a flour replacement in just about any recipe.  (Don’t confuse this flour with Bob’s Red Mill Gluten Free General Purpose flour, it’s not the same thing.)  We use it for pizza, cookies, and pancakes – anything!

-We have tried both a thin crust and a thicker crust – both work well.

Ingredients:

  • ¾ cup warm water

  • 1 tablespoon of sugar

  • 1 packet of yeast

  • 2 cups of Bob’s Red Mill Gluten Free 1-to 1 flour (this flour is the KEY!)

  • 1 teaspoon of salt

  • 1 large egg

  • 1 tablespoon of olive oil

  • 1 teaspoon of apple cider vinegar ( we use Bragg’s)

(Recipe originally adapted from one we found at https://www.glutenfreepalate.com/gluten-free-pizza-9-ingredients/ )

Wine and Dime Episode 60 - Faith in Action Executive Director, Dick Russell

This weeks guest, Dick Russell, is a long time friend as well as the director of one of my passion "projects" - Faith-in-Action.  I first met Dick in 2005 when I found out about the organization and wanted to help in the cause to keep people in their home for as long as possible.  Many people have to move out of their long-term home simply because they could no longer drive, and this organization is helping to combat this.

As you will hear, Dick, and his family, are givers; the true meaning of givers in fact.  They have served their communities in so many ways and continue to do so.   If you are interested in getting involved in this organization go to http://www.fiasteuben.org/ or call @ (607) 324-1138

What you will learn from this episode:

  • What to expect when volunteering

  • Areas that are serviced

  • Ways to donate

  • The history of this great organization

Faith in Action of Steuben County

Facebook - @fiasteuben

WHO WE ARE

At a time when our need to reach out to each other is greatest, Faith in Action Steuben County, an interfaith volunteer care-giving program, stands ready to help in the Steuben County Area. Our trained volunteers provide supportive services to the elderly at no charge.

OUR MISSION

Faith in Action Steuben County is a coalition of congregations, civic groups, and communities united to serve the elderly, assisting them to continue to live independently. We seek to augment, not replace, the individual's existing care structure. This support is provided at no cost to the recipients, by selfless volunteers who give care to people in need.


Dr Frank.jpg

Dr. Konstantin Frank Winery

The Generational Approach

Our approach to great winemaking is generational with each Frank family member building upon the foundation that Dr. Konstantin Frank built over fifty years ago. Continuing this legacy means producing the highest quality wines from the highest quality grapes.

Video: Terroir at Dr. Konstantin Frank Winery

We believe that quality starts in the vineyards with careful attention to detail and nurturing of our old vine vineyards first planted by Konstantin in 1958. These old vine vineyards are among the oldest in the United States. While they produce fewer grapes, the quality of the fruit results in more complex wines.

Over the years, we have discovered that the northern European grape varieties are most well suited for our region and have made it our passion to champion these varieties at our winery. Varieties such as Riesling, Gewürztraminer, Pinot Noir and most recently, Grüner Veltliner are among the most prized and beloved at our winery.

Our world class team of winemakers are a huge piece of the puzzle here. The team consists of winemakers from New York, California, Australia and Germany. Each team member contributes expertise from their respective region, adhering to the Frank family tradition of excellence.

Continuing Konstantin's legacy also means continuing to spread the word about the quality of Finger Lakes wines. We do this by entering wine competitions all over the world. Customers can also find our wines in many different states. Experience has taught us over the past fifty years that our wine region is and can become one of the most prestigious in the world.

Overview -

Dr. Konstantin Frank Riesling, Dry (2017)

52364_Dr._Frank_Semi-Dry_Riesling_Wine.jpg

Composition:
100% Riesling

Vinification:
The grapes were picked in the early morning to retain freshness, de-stemmed, and pressed immediately. Once pressed, the grapes were fermented in stainless steel tanks at low temperatures to preserve the more delicate characteristics and freshness. The wine rests on its fine lees for 5 months before bottling.

The Wine:
An expressive style with dominant characters of minerality, grapefruit, lime and soft apricot. The crisp lime-driven acidity enhances the distinct Keuka Lake minerality, rounded by stone fruit and ginger. Our Riesling finishes long and mouthwatering balanced perfectly with a slightly weighty texture.

Wine and Dime Episode 59 - From Teacher to Financial Planner with Ryan Frailich

In this episode of Wine and Dime I chat with Ryan Frailich of Deliberate Finances. Ryan’s life has been a journey… going from a teacher to a financial planner specializing in young couples and educators. This episode was also a journey, as we explore what lead Ryan to helping teachers. This was a great conversation that I’m sure you will enjoy!

Before becoming a fee-only financial planner, I worked as a teacher and then as a school administrator overseeing HR, including recruiting and hiring teachers. Working in HR revealed a lot about the financial lives of employees, and that’s where the lightbulb went off:

Too many people feel overwhelmed with their finances, always wondering if they're making mistakes. And too many people who want help are taken advantage of or shut out by our financial institutions.

I changed careers, earned a certificate in financial planning from L.S.U., became a CFP® professional, and started Deliberate Finances. 

When not working, I’m exploring New Orleans with my wife & young son, running or biking around the city, or watching way too many hours of tragic Minnesota sports teams.


Buffalo Trace.jpg

Buffalo Trace Whiskey

Ancient buffalo carved paths through the wilderness that led American pioneers and explorers to new frontiers. One such trail led to the banks of the Kentucky River where Buffalo Trace Distillery has been making bourbon whiskey the same way for more than 200 years. In tribute to the mighty buffalo and the rugged, independent spirit of the pioneers who followed them, we created our signature Buffalo Trace Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey.

TASTING NOTES: 

This deep amber whiskey has a complex aroma of vanilla, mint and molasses. Pleasantly sweet to the taste with notes of brown sugar and spice that give way to oak,  toffee, dark fruit and anise. This whiskey finishes long and smooth with serious depth.
