    An interesting and eclectic mix of searches, with several potential uses. Would be interesting to see numbers (of searches) attached to each...

    I'm really happy to see my Goulash article up there.

    I'm surprised by the 2004 Pio Cesare Barolo Ornato on the top searches. Don't get me wrong, it's a great Barolo but I can thing of a number of other bottles that you would think people would search for. It just doesn't come off to me as a popular bottle.

    Congrats, Eric, on more than just the Goulash recipe making the list.

    I'm not as surprised by the Pio Cesare making the list as you are. They seem to be doing something right in their distribution to liquor stores, in North America and elsewhere. I've talked with GregDP about the fact that the Barolos I've had the most bottles of are the Gaja Sperss and the Pio Cesare, basically because the Pio Cesare was in a couple of excellent liquor stores in Tokyo which I often frequent, and bottles from those producers you and Greg have commented on as liking best were nowhere to be seen. So over the past two decades the Barolos that have been easiest to find for me, in dozens of countries, have been the Pio Cesare in liquor stores, and the Sperss in fine restaurants. Pio Cesare has been the Barolo I have drunk the most of during that period, and has become the nebiollo appearing at my dinner table most regularly, though plenty of other 'guest stars' have also been consumed. :-)

    dmcker - maybe it's just the difference between the States and outside of the States. I see the base Barolo all the time at wine shops but the, single vineyard Ornato, I don't think I've ever seen that outside of specialty shops.

    Eric, usually three or more different Pio Cesare offerings at those shops I mentioned, any time I visit. Unfortunately the nearer of the shops has just closed (after a couple of generations in that business--liquor sales in Japan has been going through enough transitions the last decade or so that this is not an uncommon occurrence, at all), so I'll have to find new sources. Just went to PC's 'website', and that's certainly no answer. But then if I'm ordering from Italy, anyway, PC will have to sit further back in the bus....

    And lolalola, how about top five for each varietal or region? Top 10 of all wines would be a horrible butchery of a selection for me, and not at all how I buy wines, anyway.
