See you at Joe Canals-Sicklerville,NJ

On Wednesday December 22nd, Joe Canals-Sicklerville NJ, on Sicklerville Rd & Jarvis Rd.
Come on in between 4:00 PM to 7:00 PM for a wine tasting of Ca'Isadora Pinot Grigio, A Pinot Grigio blended with a 40% Garganega Grape.
What is the Garganega grape?
Good question!
If you have ever had a Soave Bolla white wine, you have had Garganega grapes!
The Garganega is from the Veneto region in Northeastern Italy, the best of the grapes offers a "marzipan flavor."

The Ca'Isadora Pinot Grigio is a fine wine for under $10.00 but tastes like a $30.00 wine, from start to finish. If you are and have tasted Santa Margarita Pinot Grigio and you consider yourself a wine "geek or snob" then it wouldn't hurt to try Ca'Isadora at your next meal with family and friends, the wine is also a great gift, and this is one wine, that I include in my wine tasting at your home or business.

I like doing wine tasting. My approach is fun and entertaining. I offer great wines at real reasonable retail prices from local liquor stores in New Jersey as well as quality beers and spirits.

I represent two importers who acquire many brands from around the world. Read past blogs for the liquor stores who purchase from me. My list can grow by asking your neighborhood liquor store to contact me at: 856-848-7300-home/office at any time, if not there, leave a message.

If you would like a wine tasting, or if you are interested in me, making true home made pizza, stromboli's , and my super pepperoni gravy at your home or business, contact me and we can make a wine event into a food and wine event at your location.

I am very hands on and fun.

SimBeverage was created in August and launched in September due to lack of jobs in the marketplace. I have a mortgage to pay, my wife left and divorced me on December 8th. Whatever happened to the lines "For Better or for Worse" in my case it would be temporary "Worse."

I entered the liquor business in an effort to meet my mortgage obligations, I am not there yet. By day, I operate SimBeverage, by night Monday-Wed, and the weekends, I work part-time at Home Depot in Cherry Hill, NJ, where you will find me in the Electrical department, possibly Floor and Wall, Seasonal and on occasion greeting customers at the door.

As you get to know me, You will find me to be intelligent, a really nice man, who works hard and is struggling to get ahead once again, just like you may be struggling, I feel your pain!.

I ask you to please patronize the liquor stores that I serve and suggest to your neighborhood liquor stores to contact me in order to carry your favorite wines, beers and spirits that I discuss here on my blog. Together we will all get out of this government and bank created mess successfully.

Sorry to be so personal here, but I am sad that my marriage ended. Sad that I had to close my small electronics manufacturing business, it was the prudent business decision in order not to take on any debt.

My blog will grow with your support, pass along my blog to your friends and family, co-workers and the globe. Remember I could be cooking in your home, doing a wine tasting at an event for your company. I will do anything necessary to earn enough income to hold onto my home and place it in my name.

My ethics will not allow me to let this home go, after all the effort I put into it.

SimBeverage will be taking on specialty foods in January, and spices, Look for the Simiriglio Spice brands to show up in local Deli's, start talking up Simiriglio Spices to your local retailers, I will put product in their stores on consignment, and if anyone wishes to host a "SPICE NIGHT" we can do that do, along with a little cooking for everyone to try my smoked salt, pepper, jalapeno,Sugar, and other spices.

Let's pull out of this recession together.

If anyone owns a business in trouble and requires a consultant to help organize it and restructure it, I can help, contact me: 856-848-7300.

Thank You, See you Wednesday.

See you there,


And the "Bloody Bulls" have it.

I hope everyone is enjoying their day.
Last Thursday night, My friend Joe dropped in again for a taste of "Bloody Bull" Semi-Dry Red wine from the nation of Bulgaria. You may be thinking Wine in Bulgaria???

We sat down to taste the wine. In front of us we decided to microwave a Boston Market Meatloaf and potatoes dinner to enjoy the Bloody Bull.

Bloody Bull is not a heavy wine, its light and easy to drink. The product retails under $8.00 a bottle and you can find at this time at:
Joe Canals in Sicklerville
1725 Sicklerville Rd
Gloucester Twp,NJ
Drew the owner went ahead and purchased a few cases. I will be having a Bloody Bull Wine Tasting along with French Wines from Signe Vigneron (a Merlot & Cabernet Sauvignon).
You can find "Bloody Bull" at:
Blackwood Liquors
125 Blackhorse Pike

Ok, now here is what Joe thought about "Bloody Bull"

Joe M: I was surprised by the taste of this wine, I thought it would be "putrid" to tell you the truth,my first glass was very good, it went smooth, to me it had a near sweet taste to it, like a Sangria and a taste of Cherries. It was easy to drink and having a second glass was interesting as I drank my Bloody Bull with my microwave dinner, Bloody Bull had a mellow taste, nothing harsh, and not too dry.

Rating: AAA for a wine from Bulgaria, AA if competing against an Home-grown wine.
I recommend this wine for snacking with chips, pretzels and anything else.

Joe S: As a seller of this wine. I like the label of the Red Bull. I tasted a wine that was refreshing straight up and fun to drink over ice. I went further and mixed the wine 50/50 with ginger ale for a spritzer and it was very good.

I found it easy to drink, I tasted the Sangria like flavors and a taste of sweetness as it reached the back of my tongue. Bloody Bull was easy to drink and with two guys drinking Bloody Bull, it was tempting to open a 2nd or 3rd bottle. The taste is smooth and I agree with Joe M on the rating:
AAA for an Eastern European Wine
AA when compared to a similar American Wine like a Sutter Home Zinfidel.

So jump in you car and drive over to Joe Canals in Sicklerville and to Blackwood Liquors in Blackwood, pick up a couple of bottles and tell them Joe of SimBeverage sent you.

VR LOMBARDI Cabenet Sauvignon 2008 California

The other evening my long time friend Joe Mederios and I sat down to watch the Phillies game over Cheese Steaks, pepperoni, provolone cheese, potato chips and of course VR LOMBARDI Cabernet Sauvignon. Cost Under $10.00, currently sold at: Roger Wilco-Deptford, NJ.

Well when Joe came over he brought over two steaks from Jim Steaks of South Street Fame in South Philly, I provided everything else and one bottle of VR LOMBARDI.

Here is what Joe M. had to say about VR LOMBARDI:
I am not an expert, far from it. I like my Red wines, Merlot's Cabs, and of course Chianti's and Ports, being 50-50 Portugese-Italian.
I rate VR LOMBARDI as AAA for a wine under $10.00.
Here is why: It had a Rustic taste, it felt good going down, not harsh, not bitter, but smooth, not burning. It had an aroma of Black Cherries, and I would say it was medium-bodied. A women would also enjoy this Red Wine or Cabernet Sauvignon.

My opinion is in total agreement with Joe M. Here I picked up berries, medium dryness on the tongue, not harsh, not sweet and not dry. You can feel the tannins as your swallowed and swirled the wine in your mouth. The wine also had an earthy flavor, fresh and easy to drink along with a Philly Cheese Steak with Raw Onions.

So take it from Joe M and myself, pick up a bottle of VR LOMBARDI at Roger Wilco-Deptford, near the Home Depot and next to Arby's on Rte 41.

If you don't see it on the shelf,simply ask one of the friendly sales people for assistance.
Contact me at any time:
let me know your opinion.
Have a wine you would like me to try, send me an email and we can try the wine(s) together at your place or mine.

Till then,

Great Year to the Phillies!

It's a Chardonnay, Ma!

Yes, Last week on Wednesday evening, My sister-in-law Michelle and I shared a Chardonnay made by Domenico Winery of California.The name of the wine: "A Wine You Will Always Remember." I arrived at my Michelle's and my brothers home around 6:00 PM, Robert was at work.

We popped the cork and started tasting the wine.I hadn't eaten dinner yet,so there were no strange foods to effect my taste buds. "A Wine You Will Always Remember" sells for under $10.00 at Roger Wilco in Deptford,NJ and now it has appeared at Freddy's Liquor store in 57- W. Cuthbert Blvd in Haddon Heights,NJ.

No swirling here, I simply took a sip and allowed the wine to slowly reach the back of my mouth, the taste was smooth in the mouth, I tasted Pineapple and even a taste of "honey" as the wine concentrated down into my taste-buds. As I swallowed it was mellow,no harsh tastes or any burning. The Chardonnay was chilled for a day before it was uncorked, and the ride to my brothers home was only 10-minutes.

The Color is similar to a green grape, it has a small tangy taste intially as it enters your mouth, then soothing as you swallow it, with an inviting alert to the brain for more, more, more,! And you will like it.

Now it's Michele's turn: "Smoooooth, tasty, not overwhelming, not your ordinary Chardonnay, better tasting than a Pinot Grigio, and I like Pinot Grigio's, The wine has a nice feel in the mouth, its not dry and its not sweet,to me its a little intense as it enter the mouth and then its smooth with a slight warmth as it travels down my throat, when it hits my chest, its warm. I would drink this wine in the fall and through the winter. I love white wines, I am adding "A Wine You Will Always Remember" to my list of favorites. I do taste a little pear, peach and other fruits in the wine as I swish and play wine expert for a minute, I really like it, I recommend it be labeled an MLW for Major League Wine.

Well there you have it, Michelle has rated "A Wine You will Always Remember" an MLW.

I rate the wine as a AAA- Very Good, I am not a White Wine drinker, I prefer Reds, but being objective about the wine, I would agree with Michele and purchase this Chardonnay over a Pinot Grigio when it comes down to making a White Wine decision.

Over the next few weeks we will be trying Pinot Grigio's and other white and red wines, we will try semi-sweet table wines from around the world and from Eastern Europe.

From time to time, We will try Vodkas, Rums, Cognacs, Beers, and much more.

So Stay with us, contribute to our blog and if you are a winery, send me your wines for a Regular guy, and regular people tasting. We are not experts, we are having fun and being objective.

Even though I may sell these wines, everyone's personal taste to the tongue is different. I request that you try the wines each week and visit the liquor stores and eventually the Restaurants,night clubs and bars who will be selling our products, and let me know and all the readers know what you think of the wines presented.

Go Phillies

FIrst Wine Tasting & Stuffed Shells Too!

Good Morning to everyone. Today is September 21,2010

On Thursday evening September 16th, I invited my Brother Robert, his wife Michelle to dinner. I served my famous homemade Pepperoni Gravy,along with Suffed Shells from
P & S ravioli Company, Meatballs, and the pepperoni (Margarita) used in the cooking of my gravy for the shells.

Our Wine: A Wine You Will Never Forget, A 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon, California produced by Domenico Wines ( My rating system is not numbered, we use letters.
Here are the rules: We Don't swirl and stick our noses in the glasses, We move the glass across our nose gently, then take a sip, swallow it all the way down and take another hardy taste moments later. (No Spitting allowed) their is food on the table and my almost 1-year-old nephew sitting with us, eating and tossing his food on the floor having fun and laughing while we eat and drink.

The Rating System:
MLW= Major League Wine: Defined as WOW! this stuff is excellent
AAA= Good, equals a wine over $10.00
AA=Average,about what is expected of an under $10.00 wine
A=Poor,My god, Pour the stuff down the sink

Michelle isn't a Red Wine drinker, she prefers White Wines, but she gave it a taste and consumed an entire glass (good sport that she is).
Michelle's Reaction: "I like it, I don't drink Red Wine, I would buy the wine for a party and family event, its good, I would rate it a "AA" since I don't drink Red Wines too often."

Robert: It's real good, has a nice feel and taste to it, not to dry, not sweet, perfect with pasta, I really like the wine and would buy it and mention it to friends. It's not heavy and in my opinion has a taste more like a table Chianti or Dago Red. I rate the wine at "AAA"

So far we have been eating our shells, getting to the meat balls and pepperoni, and the baby has decorated the floor with bread crumbs and bits of meatballs, and laughing all the way.

OK, Here it is this my opinion, I agree with my brother, the wine is very tasty, not dry, not sweet, the aroma is similar to a table Chianti, the flavors on my "tongue" are a light coffee, a tannin, with a nice feel (smooth) as the wine hits the back of the mouth and tongue. The Wine is easy to drink and very easy to open a second bottle. The Wine is smooth, nothing harsh, and a great value under $10.00 for anyone on and not on a budget. "MY RATING IS "AAA" I like red wines, my favorite wines are Chianti's, the Sangiovese grape. I like a hearty table wine.
"A WINE YOU WILL NEVER FORGET is perfect with a chunk of provolone cheese and cut fresh pepperoni and an Italian loaf of bread, I sat down on Sunday evening and had the wine accompany my small feast and later fell asleep on my couch. I recommend that you travel over to Roger Wilco in Deptford and try a bottle or two, then email me: or write your own opinion to my blog, I would really appreciate your input and become a part of my tasting crowd.

Getting Closer to Wines under $10.00

Today is September 2,2010. In the days following Labor Day, I will begin to you my opinions of wines under $10.00 and where to find these wonderful wines in New Jersey.

I am going to seek out online wine sellers and discuss with them the potential of stocking the wines that I write about and hopefully if you live outside of New Jersey you will have the availability of purchasing and tasting the wines in my articles each week.

I will make a available a list of New Jersey Liquor stores stocking the wines weekly.

So I am almost ready to launch Wines under $10.00 Reviews. I look forward to your opinions. Many of these wines will not have any wine magazine or Parker rating, instead they will have Joe Rating, which I will discuss in my next blog.

SimBeverage Is Born Out of Necessity! ! !

On August 3rd, 2010. Joe Simiriglio Jr Beverage Sales was born. I have been unable to become employed full time with all my 33 years business experience. I interview with HR people who are half my age, I am 52 years old. They hire their peers in their age group and companies seem uninterested in experienced,talented individuals because they feel my salary will have to be above $85K a year. I am worth $85K plus, but all I need is enough to pay my mortgage, monthly expenses and enough money to put aside for retirement.

Joe Simiriglio Jr Beverage Sales t/a SimBeverage will sell Wine, Beer, Spirits, and non-alcoholic beverages in the Philadelphia, Eastern PA and Southern New Jersey area,and along the Southern NJ shore to Cape May City with all there B & B's.

Here my thought it to share my wine adventures and product tasting with each of you out there. I will also offer my opinion on Beers, Spirits and non-alcoholic beverages.

What you do with my opinion is up to you. Each week, I will present new products, make your comments positive or negative, but do it in a fun, respectful manner.

I am not a WINE,BEER,SPIRITS SNOB. I am a regular guy with an opinion who is trying to make a new living in the beverage world. I am also attempting to save a marriage, but my chances according to my wife is 1%.

So onto the wine and other beverage tasting we go, the next blog will be the first week of September.

Wine doesn't have to be expensive to taste good

Hello to everyone:

Many of us love to drink wine. On August 3rd Out of desperation to keep myself busy from not having a full time "Day Job" as I am currently employed part-time at a local Home Depot, and "I truly appreciate the part-time employment." The job allows me to pay all my bills except my Mortgage, My wife is currently making the payments, even though we are separated and she has filed for divorce, I still don't know the reason for her actions.

I am an Entrepreneur, to my regret I had to close my small custom manufacturing electronics products factory at the end of 2008. The responsibility of surviving through 2009 was handed to my wife, who I still Love very much,(her name is Jean).

We got through the year very well, we both lost weight because we altered our eating habits due to the lack of dining out in 2009, we cooked more and healthier foods at home and we optioned for less expensive wine,spirits and even beer.

Here is where my Blog idea began to swirl in my head. So today August 16th, my blog:

While my small part-time budget pays the bills, it allows me to indulge in wines under $10.00 that are very good. My blogs will begin describing those wines weekly along with photographs of the wine labels. I am not a wine geek. You will read about wines in my own normal opinion, from taste,aroma, etc.

So look out World, here comes A Regular guys wine tasting opinion. Prices will be posted and then you can contact me where you can find the wines.

This is POST #1
