  • 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

  • It's not just the year, but the year for specific locations and microclimates. DV, I'm assuming wines that come out of Vancouver Island and the Gulf Islands don't have the same 'vintages' as those over in the Okanagan, much less further east on the Niagara bench.Just as in Canada, so as in CA, WA, OR, France, Italy, etc., especially over larger ...

  • Redbank Wines Pinot Gris King Valley Sunday Morning 2013

    Snoothrank:

    Sweet tart on the nose with layered aromas of pear, nori seaweed, citrus pith and rose petals. A bit on the subtle side, this has a very attractive texture, transparent, gossamer thin yet with some tensile strength and energy behind the mineral and apple core flavors. The acidity is nicely supportive and brings out a fine mineral note on the bac... Read More

    Wine review by mark


  • No, the fog there is somewhat different.  All the fog forms as a result of the temp differences between the water and the air, but the movement of the fog on the Central Coast is more uniform (mostly) because they don't get the huge effect from the Central Valley.  The Central Coast is unusual because they have a number of small east -west runni...

  • Well, he's also making wine in Brooklyn, which is where I am now. So if the plan is to buy grapes somewhere in California, ship them down, and turn them into wine, it's a shorter distance than sending them to the east coast! And there is indeed a tradition of doing that - it's what was done during Prohibition and I still know some Italians in Be... Read More
