Perfect Pairings: 5 Best Wines to Drink With Steak

Whether you’re sinking your teeth into an inch-thick ribeye or a sizzling skirt steak, you want a wine that’ll both stand up to and complement the umami-rich character of beef. Some wines pair well with pretty much any style of steak, but others are better suited to leaner or fattier cuts.

“For a fatty cut of beef, I would recommend a wine with good acidity, structure, and texture to clean the fattiness from the mouth,” says Sebastian Zuccardi, owner of Argentina’s Zuccardi Valle de Uco winery.

Zuccardi was recently named one of the top 10 winemakers of South America. And as an Argentinian, he knows his beef.

For leaner cuts, he suggests a bigger, bolder wine. “I would pick a wine with good volume, and one that’s concentrated enough to take up your entire mouth with flavor,” he says. You also want a wine … Read the rest

The MJ5: Ice Climber Will Gadd on His Essential Adventure Gear and Top Travel Spots

Pro ice climber and paraglider Will Gadd loves a good adventure. Over the years, his love for climbing has taken him to places far and wide, including the Greenland ice sheet, where he explored some of the largest—and most dangerous—glaciers in the world for his Red Bull TV film Beneath the Ice.

From traveling around the world, Gadd has learned a thing or two about what gear helps him the most when he’s on an expedition, to what training keeps him in the best shape to make sure he gets home safely. Gadd put all that knowledge together for his trip to Greenland, which combined Gadd’s love for the sport of ice climbing with researching what’s going on beneath the ice sheet.

“For this project, we wanted to see what’s actually happening under these glaciers,” … Read the rest

6 Things to Know About the 2020 Mid-Engined C8 Corvette

For years there were rumblings that Chevrolet would shake up its most iconic sports car, the Corvette, by offering a mid-engined version. The masses rejoiced when spy shots of prototypes testing around Detroit first emerged, and when the latest Corvette appeared in camouflaged guise earlier this summer, speculations ran rampant about powertrain specifications, whether or not it would offer a manual transmission, how the C8 Corvette would look, and how much the all-new Corvette would cost. Now, the 2020 Corvette C8 Stingray has been officially revealed, and we’ve got some quick facts you need to know.

It’s got a V-8 that makes 495 horsepower

Tapas, Beaches, and a Whole Lotta Gaudí: The 4-Day Weekend in Barcelona

Tapas, Beaches, and a Whole Lotta Gaudí: The 4-Day Weekend in Barcelona

Barcelona is at the top of everyone’s must-see list. And that’s not just figurative: With nearly 9 million tourists passing through each year (and growing), its popularity is something to take into account when planning your first visit. The city is faced with long lines and tightening regulations, as well as extreme summer heat (it’s best to avoid from mid-July to early September), so how you tackle Barcelona will play a big factor in how much you enjoy the city.

You’ll want an itinerary that covers the bases and efficiently circumnavigates the crowds—even if you’ve got to check off La Sagrada Familia and Park Güell. This leaves more time to devour tapas, see world-class flamenco, and marvel at 2,000-year-old neighboring towns (which were grand enough to be a part of the Game of Thrones set).

So, if you’re planning a visit, here’s our suggested to-do list, filled with relaxing hotels, … Read the rest

Check Out Leonardo DiCaprio in the Funny First ‘Once Upon a Time in Hollywood’ Clip

Leonardo DiCaprio and Brad Pitt are teaming up for the first time for Quentin Tarantino’s new film Once Upon a Time in Hollywood. DiCaprio stars as Rick Dalton, a TV star who sees his career fading and wants to make the move into the glitz and glamour of Hollywood movies, while Pitt plays Dalton’s stunt double and best friend Cliff Booth.

Tarantino’s film is his look at the Hollywood “golden age” with his usual wild twist: It takes place in 1969 with the backdrop of the Manson murders playing through the story. Margot Robbie stars as eventual Manson victim Sharon Tate, while characters based on real-life people like Steve McQueen, Bruce Lee, and Manson all will appear in the film.

DiCaprio and Sony debuted the first clip from the film, showing off the … Read the rest
