  • We had a white wine from Viserny last week. That's Viserny there in the photo. It's just down the road from where we live. And you would never guess but it's the most important wine village in the area. The wine we tasted was a well-made-home-made inscrutable, and enough of a curiosity that we wanted to meet the person who made it. So we got an ... Read More

  • Glad you have your priorities straight, DGC!I've encountered this, too, on and off over the years. Not common, but common enough to remember clearly and recognize quickly after multiple occurrences. Have had it from wines of South America, Eastern Europe, North Africa and off-locations like India and other parts of Asia (from Near East over to E... Read More

  • "The red-checked tablecloth places with the bottle of Chianti are perfect examples of pan-Italian."My favorite Italian place in Tokyo (hope my Tuscan chef/owner-friend Mario who runs another restaurant I often frequent doesn't read this) has red-checked tablecloths and is literally named 'Chianti'.  ;-)    Was an in-spot for celebs back in the '...

  • DM - as you know, it's originally from Spain in Aragon. It was the most widely planted red variety in the world just a few years ago and may still be. It was also the most planted red grape in Spain, which still has like twice as much as anywhere else in the world. Relatively speaking they have even more Monastrell, but that's a different story....

  • v v, the Golden State looks forward to hosting you, again.I assume you know that lodging in the city of Santa Barbara does not exactly put you in the middle of wine country.  With a quick Google search, though, I was surprised at how many wineries do have.  My first choices for in-town visits would be Au Bon Climat, Jaffurs and Vogelzang.Santa Y...

  • Every year the group of which I am a member [the London BMW Club] have a 'Continental Hotel Weekend' in a different part of north-east Europe. This year I got to choose the hotel because I did a recee on my own last year before meeting up with the rest in Rouen.I chose a hotel in Chenonceaux next to the famous Chateau. We visited that Chateau an... Read More

  • The oil spill is, I'm guessing, about 20 miles north of downtown Santa Barbara and about 20-25 miles south and west of what most people refer to as Santa Barbara wine country--Lompoc/Santa Ynez.  There are some tasting rooms in the city of Santa Barbara, and, in fact most of them are within walking distance of each other.  I would guess that the...

  • Okay, getting back to the topic at hand, in effect the Santa Lucia Highlands AVA is the other side of those mountains.  Arroyo Seco is basically due east of Big Sur.  And there's San Antonio Valley a little further south.  (Pierce Family, whom I have touted on the "Completely Different" thread, are down there.)  Here's a nice map: http://wine.ap...

  • I once, a few years back, almost pulled the trigger on a real estate purchase in the hills back behind the Big Sur coastline. Was reminiscing on that today, and wondered why I never hear about wine from that area. Is it because I'm so far away and out of touch and there actually are barrels and barrels of wine being made there, or because the cu... Read More
