Wine writers are not a homogeneous lot. We come in all shapes and sizes, and styles of course. Some prefer to dwell on a single wine at a time, others are more prolific. None are more prolific than my friend Richard Jennings. A veritable tasting machi...Read more »

Hey everyone, if you're in town April 13th and you've got a hanker to try some excellent Napa Cabernet, vertical style, join me and GM Stephanie DeMasi for a vertical tasting from this family owned, boutique estate. Located in the Spring Mountain District, Juslyn currently only makes two red wines, both limited-production, Cabernet-dominated ... Read More
This is a wonderful wine that had nice maple syrup overtones. It was quite a wonderful experience, but I am sad to say that the winery is no more. Shadow Canyon is no more, so if you are able to get your hands on one of these bottles, take care of it. Read More
Well if I was on either the right or left coasts in the US during the coming month, I know where I'd be at least part of the time. NapaGirl, note the interesting new (for me, anyway) cab franc ACME's introducing. Finally, who knows how the formatting on this is going to appear....

I'm just about to get on a plane from Aspen, back to New York, and then to London. My favorite moments from here:> Meeting Snooth users, including Gantt> Meeting Gail Simmons from TopChef/Food and Wine and not knowing who she was, hearing her say she loves Snooth and then calling her back for a do-over/re-intro>Taking the gondola to the top of t...

Hospice du Rhone, the brainchild of John Alban, has become Spring's epicenter for all things Rhone. This global celebration is a warm embrace of all 22 grape varieties that trace their heritage to the lands that surround France’s 505 mile watering hole, 18 years strong, with this year, embarrassingly, being my first. Well, it took me ten years... Read More
OK - here's another crazy deal. I got this at Grocery Outlet for $3.99. It is fantastic. When I spotted it, I grabbed a couple of bottles asap. I did some Christmas shopping that day too. It's probably gone by now. But here's a tip go visit your local Grocery Outlet once or twice a month and you can find some GREAT wine for CHEAP. Shadow ... Read More
In my last post, I wrote about the dilemma I am facing in naming my personal wine project. I said that I am 99% sure of what that name would be. And before I unveil it here and my reasons why, let it be said that this is no press release in the vein of Snooths Wine Pairing application. Kudos to the team for another quality extension of the br... Read More
Gemischter Satz mit Shlag (Schlag) by Alice Feiring, June 24, 2009About the wines of Vienna and the terroir hype of Wiener Gemischter Satz!Vienna has more than shlag, it has terroir.In fact the snow covered Alps stops at the Danube. It's almost like the mountain range gave a last burb and out of it emerged three defiant mounds of rock and loess.... Read More
Its not often that one gets a second chance with wines like this. Way back when, in my early years of wine discovery I had the distinct fortune of being able to patronize a small wine shop in Watermill New York. I forget the name of the shop, Watermill Wines I would guess, but do recall the proprietor, George.Watermill, being part of the Hampto... Read More
After much anticipation Snooths OTBN was apon us! We were meeting in the wonderfully elegant Deco Room at North Square Restaurant here in New York City to celebrate, well, celebrating! That is, of course, the point of OTBN. Begun a decade ago precisely in order to give people the reason to celebrate and open that special bottle that had always s... Read More
