In the world of wine enthusiasts, one generation stands out for their refined taste,appreciation for tradition, and a love for life's simple pleasures—the Baby Boomers. Bill Clinton. Oprah Winfrey. Tom Hanks. Madonna. They are all baby boomers. I am unaware of all their favorite wines but I do know that Oprah, legend of the interview, is a huge fan of Silver Oak Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon.
A Journey of Taste and Time
Born between 1946 and 1964, the Baby Boomer generation has a profound love affair with wine that has shaped the wine industry. For Baby Boomers, wine is more than just a drink; it's a journey of taste and time. As they've grown older, so has their wine palette. From their early days of exploring sweet (millenials are here in the journey ) and approachable wines to developing a refined taste for complex varietals, Baby Boomers have embraced the diversity of the wine world. Wine has been the conduit through which Baby Boomers have connected with different cultures and formed lasting bonds. From sharing a bottle during family gatherings to exploring wines from far-off lands, these moments of conviviality have enriched their lives and created lasting memories.
The Pleasure of Pairing
One cannot mention Baby Boomers' love for wine without celebrating their mastery in the art of pairing. From matching the perfect wine with a delectable meal to experimenting with cheese and wine combinations, they've elevated the dining experience to an exquisite symphony of flavors. Would Blue Apron be around without Baby Boomers looking for ?
Celebrating Life's Milestones
Given their seniority, Baby Boomers have witnessed and celebrated numerous milestones, and wine has been a constant companion throughout. From weddings and anniversaries to retirement parties, wine has been a part of these significant moments, symbolizing joy, love, and togetherness. The Baby Boomers' thirst for experience has led them to explore wine regions around the world. Napa Valley especially. They've embarked on wine tours, tasting the fruits of different terroirs, and experiencing the richness of various cultures, all in the pursuit of discovering the perfect pour.
A Legacy of Knowledge and Appreciation
Through their love affair with wine, Baby Boomers have become the custodians of wine knowledge, passing down their passion and appreciation to younger generations. I appreciate the wine recommendations I get from family members who are baby boomers. Cousin Lina, born in 1960, is always tipping me on to another Italian wine.
Raising a Glass to Baby Boomers
So, let's raise our glasses to the Baby Boomers—the connoisseurs, the trendsetters, the adventurers, Oprah and my cousin, Lina. They've not only embraced wine but embraced life, relishing every moment with elegance and grace. Their love affair with wine is a testament to the enduring charm and allure of this age-old elixir.
Cheers to the Baby Boomers. Let's sing it, The Mamas & the Papas! <"All the leaves are brown...">

Meghan Markle's passion for fine wine is no secret, and one of her all-time favorites was Antinori's Tignanello. Tignanello is a highly regarded Italian red wine, known for its rich and complex flavors, and it served as a precursor to the Super Tuscan wines. Meghan's love for this wine went beyond the palate; it became a symbol of her appreciation for luxury, such as owning a personal helicopter like Piero Antinori, the patriarch of Marchesi Antinori and the maker of Tignanello.
But what made the Cabrera gift stand out was how it diverged from the norm of players often being gifted Rolex watches from teams and teammates. But Cabrera plays for the Tigers so it is likely that his team will be gifting the legend something more befitting of his stature in baseball history. As for the bottle of Caymus he likely left in the opposing team's dugout after the game, here's hoping it finds its way back to the individual in the Athletics' front office who hatched this brilliance.
