More About Wheeling Forward

The costs of living with SCI can be considerable, and vary greatly due to the severity of injury. The following facts are according to The University of Alabama National Spinal Cord Injury Statistical Center and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

● Average yearly expenses can range from $228,566 to $775,567 in the first year.

Grab the Bubbly. . .Enjoy it New Year’s Eve or the Entire Week

The new year is full of sparkle and it’s a great time to crack open that bottle of bubbly.  Champagne is a great accompaniment to cocktails, adding just a touch of refreshment.  Plus, mimosas are a great way to toast the weekend on the beach, at the lake or on vacation.

The problem is, once you open a bottle of Champagne or sparkling wine, you usually have to drink it right away.  And, while this might not seem like an issue with the first bottle, the second bottle is usually in danger of spoiling.  Keeping those bubbles popping can be tough.

Until now. . . .this great bubble-lasting, champagne popping and sparkling wine must-have is created by two wine veterans.



This is the New Year’s hosts’ must-have.

It allows you to open that bottle of bubbly tonight AND enjoy it tomorrow or the next day . . .up to a week!

The product is appropriately named, CapaBubbles.

Yup – keep on celebrating through the summer all weekend – or week – long!

CapaBubbles retails for just $15.95.

Definitely a good investment for the champagne lover.

Dark Horse 2014 Pinot Noir

At Dark Horse Wine, we wholeheartedly believe that fortune favors the bold.


Winemaker Beth Liston marshals the best agricultural and winemaking resources from around the globe to deliver the unexpected: a bold wine that outperforms its price.

Our Pinot Noir is fruit forward with flavors of fresh red cherry and strawberry that are complemented by hints of rose and lavender. The light notes of molasses help lift the fruit and floral character. This Pinot Noir offers a balanced palate with a velvety mouthfeel and a subtle sweetness.

The grapes for this wine were selected from premier California vineyards by our Winemaker Beth Liston. Throughout the 2014 growing season, Beth visited these vineyards daily to determine which blocks would make it to the final blend. In 2014, Beth noted it was a dry and warm year, making canopy management key to allow just the right amount of sunlight on the berries, resulting in an ideal balance of flavor and acidity in the glass.

The grapes for our Pinot Noir were harvested at optimum ripeness, leading to an early extraction of rich color and velvety tannins during fermentation. Beth fermented this wine at warmer temperatures up to 92°F for more intense flavors and fruit-driven aromatics. After fermentation, all lots underwent malolactic fermentation and were aged on oak to add complexity and balance.
