  • I agree with you both - if we are talking about entry-level, everyday wines - or whatever we wish to classify the cheaper juice as.  Chile, Argentina, and the other areas mentioned are cheaper - at all quality levels.  California prices are high for a host of easily understandable economic reasons, as well as branding (Napa, Sonoma, maybe certai...

  • As per your OP's title, JD, next a look at CA. From the Wine Institute:"Chardonnay, with 95,000 acres, is the wine type variety with the most acreage planted in California."Cabernet Sauvignon was the second most planted winegrape in California with 76,800 total acres."The red wine category for the second year in recent history edged out white wi...

    Wine review by Mr Dolce


  • Its hard  to please three people with different tastes.Agree.  It's harder than hard.Thanks for the report, Red.  I have to compliment you on your ability to analyze and report your experiences.  Excellent.The fact of the matter is that Americans like a bit of sugar in their wine.  One of the reasons that I have, pretty much, given up on Califor...

  • Greg is certainly a very knowledgeable contributor on multiple boards.  I don't know if anybody has noticed, though, but he is also a bit opinionated.  ;-)Personally, I am OK with Blue (Bleu. Roquefort, Stilton, Gorgonzola, Humboldt Fog) Cheese with most full-bodied red wines. However, you just cannot beat any of those with Sauternes -- or, I as... Read More

  • First, I recommend renting a luxury car, rather than just a standard sedan.  I mean, how often do you do this, so why not do it in style?  I don't mean a big Cadillac or limo, just a nice BMW or Mercedes or Lexus.  Second, the time spent at a winery will vary + or - 30 minutes due to potential crowds, but the tasting itself is about 15 minutes. ...

  • Hey thanks NG.  I'm going to search that out.  Victoria is a haven for environmentalists and I'd be surprised if I couldn't find a copy of that.  EDUCATION would be extremely effective and the best place for all levels of government in California to start the conservation effort.  I'm willing to bet though, that changing so many mentalities will...

  • The photos are all from three separate plots of private land that I looked at.Agreed, JD, and I hesitated before posting my query.But wondered if anyone knew of any winemakers doing things there, interesting or not. Certainly there is wine down towards Cambria and Cayucos. If the Hearst family had held onto San Simeon, there'd likely be hundreds... Read More

  • 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
