Chloé Mathieu Phillips & Dennis Phillips

Chloé and Dennis’ passion for unique, local food and wine started
years ago around a shared plate of churros in the south of Spain. Chloé followed Dennis to New York, Dennis caught up with her appreciation for wine and food and together they quickly started eating and drinking their way around the world and making amazing, passionate friends along the way. They recently lived in Europe and backpacked their way back across Asia and South America. Dennis and Chloé now live in Greenpoint,
Brooklyn and are happily plotting their next move in the world of
food, wine and travel. They share their wine experiences on Tag:Wine
and on the more personal (and often written in French) chloe blogue.

Don’t even get me started on my love for Greenpoint, Brooklyn. Chloe and Dennis lured me there four years ago, promising it would change my life. They were right – it’s the only place I stay when I visit New York City. Chloe shares the details on this gem of a Brooklyn neighborhood that’s just

How to Build Your Wine Collection

What wines should I be buying? Where should I shop? How much should I spend on wine? Where and how am I supposed to store the wine? Ugh, sound familiar? Well, those are just a handful of questions swirling around in my mind (Dennis here!) before starting my own wine collection. Taking the first steps

Crisp White Greek Wine

Some of you may know it, but we used to live in London.  Although we love living in Brooklyn, the one thing that makes coming back really difficult is the distances. By moving closer to our friends and families, we moved away from the low-cost flights to continental Europe, away form the train that could

A Rosé for the Sunny Days

Our first rosé in 2010! If you’re like us, there are few things more exciting than the first few outdoor rosés of the year. Nothing screams summer and good times like rosé. Last Saturday was the perfect day for that. It was sunny and warm in NYC and it was the kind of day that

Red Hook Winery – The Electric

It’s not often that we are absolutely, completely shocked by a wine.   However, this aptly named wine — The Electric — from Red Hook Winery did just that at a recent tasting.   The winery is very new and this 2008 bottle is one of about 6 different wines making up their first line

Wine: Mas de Gourgonnier

So last week we asked the question “What is a boutique wine” and we had a number of fantastic comments… one of which was that a boutique wine should have a story.  This week’s wine definitely has a story, a crazy shaped bottle and a family pouring its passion into it. We sometimes scoff at

What is Boutique Wine?

Most people define boutique wine as “small production”, “artisanal” or even “cult”.  But what does it really mean for a wine to be boutique? Over the past few weeks, we’ve tried to highlight wines from lesser known areas, like New Mexico or Jasnieres.  We’ve also tasted some wine where only a few hundred cases are

We had such a delicious, fascinating wine last weekend, we thought we absolutely had to share it here. There was only one problem however: we had trouble figuring out how to describe it. We were not the only ones: a quick search showed that Chris of the excellent Full Pour wine blog felt exactly the

Photo by Nino Modugno, view his photos You probably all know by now that when given the choice, we do like to go with locally produced goods, especially with food. With wine however, the discussion becomes a bit more complicated. We are not sure that we agree with Mark Bittman when he says that drinking

Light Winter Salad and New Mexico Wine

This week’s bottle definitely is a special one. Not necessarily for its taste but rather for its provenance, New Mexico. Although this is the oldest wine growing region in the United States, few people know about it and New Mexican wines are quite rare on the east coast. Gruet, probably the most famous winery in

Valentine’s Day can mean different things to different people.   For us, we’ve done the fancy dinners at restaurants, rom-coms at the cinema, massages for two… so what’s left for two foodies with a voracious appetite for wine?   A massive home cooked 30oz rib eye for two, that’s what!

Volcanic wine, pizza and rock-n-roll

Last night’s pairing surprised us more than anything we’ve experienced so far this year. It involved Italian wine, a homemade pizza and a CD we hadn’t heard in years. It all started back in 2005… We used to be regulars at — what we still consider to be — the best wine bar in New

Two dear friends have begun sharing their wine knowledge and tasting experience on their new blog, Tag: Wine. They’ve graciously offered to share the wine love on Eat Boutique each week, lucky us! A boutique wine from Chablis? “C’est impossible!” you might be thinking. But, in the small town of Milly located just over 2
