  • In the East Bay, esp my neck of the woods (North Oakland/Berkeley), it's an embarrassment of riches in this as in so many other things.  Andronico's, a formerly swanky market, is all but gone, and AG Ferrari is closing up its last shop after years of sinking into dismal faux Italian market-hood. But others have taken their place, albeit not in e... Read More

  • "the southernmost extremes of Ontario are actually further south than Bordeaux"I love shit like this.  As if the only thing that mattered was latitude.  (Or soil, or mean daily temperature, or... take your pick.) Has this writer ever been to either place?  I haven't been to Bordeaux, but I know that area in Ontario and Western NY pretty well.  L... Read More

  • JD, don't knock that co-fermentation, IMHO it really does add positive elements. Sounds like a good focus for an offline somewhere. Single-grape syrahs vs. those that are co-fermented with viognier. Three zones for focus: France, Oz and West Coast of North America. Historically I've also been of the school of thought that, other than in Chateau ... Read More

  • EM - Sandra's oyster assessment:  The west coast oysters are more delicate, have a cucumber taste and the further north you get them from the better they are.  The east coast oysters are brinier, generally less delicate (larger) and again the further north you go (PEI) the better they are.DM - I'm certainly not going to address each and every ph...

  • "I wish there were a place here in California I could drive to with my gallon jug to get it filled for about $9 with decent wine that's reflective of the place it's produced--good, everyday wine of character for the equivalent of about $2 a bottle."Go north on Westside to DaVero. It's across from the intersection of Westside and West Dry Creek R... Read More

  • Was thinking specifically of drug and related issues. Certainly economic drivers, and then there's the overall weather atmosphere of the place. If you can get past the weather (maybe even worse than Seattle, though not by all that much) and what the Chinese influx has done to real estate prices, it (and environs with all the water and smaller is...

  • Hi NapaGirl,To be clear on our location, we are 210 miles north from SF and then 15 minutes off the freeway west on Briceland Road towards Shelter Cove, Kings Range and the Lost Coast.  This is west from Redway/Garberville area, only 20 min. from Benbow.We did do the Family Winemakers event in SF and I am sorry that I did not come here and let p...

  • What herbs/spices in the sausage? What sides?With his first recording would be drinking something more energetic. With his second, something more laid back and even sedate. Wonder how many hours of recordings and performances inbetween the two. Maybe health changes, too. Something like a jaded fatigue had set in by the 2nd. Actually just gave bo... Read More

Graves SB/semillon blend 4th, picpoul de pinet 5th, Alsatian riesling 6th, Spanish and Portuguese whites next. Have even had pleasurably with dry chenin blanc, whether from Savennieres or South Africa. In Oz an... Read More

  • 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
