  • 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

  • Al, we all know LA is a hellhole, even if there are pockets of paradise around the place, up canyons or along the shoreline. That doesn't really make up all that much of California, though, at all.I think you'll be hard pressed to find too many biking routes better than a Santa Monica start, up PCH, on 101 from Oxnard to Santa Barbara, then San ...

  • Used to be a pretty well regarded "competition."  Both the paper and the competition have sunk, the competition more so because the paper was never better than mediocre.  The Chron lost its chance to be good when the Examiner folded.  Instead of picking up the good staff from the Ex, they fired their best reporters in a cost cutting move and pre...

  • Greetings to all from sunny Languedoc, thanks for taking the time to resond, I appreciate the welcome and the questions (although I cannot answer all of them, or necessarily provide as much detail as you might hope for, as I work full time as well as raising a family). To respond briefly to the questions: Cahors is not in Languedoc-Roussillon (i... Read More

  • EM - The flowers behind the bottle are rhododendrons.  We have purple and white ones that we planted about 23 years ago behind the house (mostly a shaded area).  We too have mostly California wines in our cellar.  Did you mean Paradise Ridge when you said you liked Ridge?  We were members of their wine club for a few years but we had to cut back...

  • Big Al, I thought you were retired.  Since I retired, the only way I can tell M-F from S or S is by checking the TV schedule.  There are more races on Saturdays and Sundays.I have had one or two Montoya's (we have Total Wines out here) and there is no denying that they are darned reliable wines for a darned good price.  Another label I have foun...

  • Hi all!Hoping to wade into interesting wine talk (and food talk).  Me, I've been seriously enjoying and exploring wine for just over 20 years. On the red side, right now I'm partial to wines from Spain and the Rhone valley, but other loves are Oregon pinots, really good Italian wines (yes, it's endless, but that's the fun), and wanting to try mu...
