  • Thought this was an interesting mailer I'd share with you all. Already forwarded the e-mail to Fox as he is one of the few champions of Dolcetto that I know. This would also fit in well with the "weekday wines" thread. Fox and I agreeing it's a good week day pasta night wine, or even a 1st wine in a flight of Northern Italian Reds. To all Best W...

  • I was wondering what sort of new topic I could start that would pair nicely with my previous posting 'Weekday Wines'; well here it is - Weekend Wines.  Sometimes I just have to stop and take a minute to pat myself on the back for my quick wit but alas, this isn't one of those times.  Anyway, why not talk about wines we enjoy on weekends?  These ...

  • If I were over there rather than over here, I would've been all over this offer as soon as it was posted. Good of you to shout about it, OT. Now here's another offer at least as interesting... Northern Piedmont Knockout!Sometimes we get lucky, and find a great deal – fewer times we get extremely lucky and we find a great deal from one of a small...

  • "Now correct me if I'm wrong, but I think the Rhone misses Burgundy, but it does run through the fabulous Rhone region, home of the Northern Rhone (Syrah and Viognier) and the Southern Rhone (blends, mostly)."Technically correct, but the Saone, which gives the 'Cote d'Or' its cotes while it runs through Burgundy is really just one of the major f...

  • Darrin Vogler is about to take the "Snarky in a nice way" title from OT. I'm hoping to build a real cellar soon, too, but there are pix of my ad hoc arrangement scattered about here.  Of course, that was when I had 100 bottles fewer.  Yikes.  I do recommend that you use CellarTracker to keep track of things.  I use it in classic mode because I d...

  • I love N. Rhone Syrah.  It's my favorite red wine in France.  But the acreage of the region is so small and the area that provide its best wines even smaller, that prices have hit the roof.  Sure, there are a few St. Josephs and Crozes-Hermitages that come in around $25, but those are either made for earlier drinking and a lot less thrilling wit...

Our responsibility is to safeguard the wine during its passage from vineyard to bottle and to protect it from too much wine-making" - Stephen Lagier & Carole Meredith. WOW!

  • The Argentinian Patagonia, comprising the provinces of Neuquen, Rio Negro, Chubut, Santa Cruz and Tierra del Fuego, is a land of stark contrasts. Both soils and climates. From the arid desert of Northern Patagonia, by the central steppe, the Andes Mountains, to the hot and humid southern climate. While Argentina is renowned worldwide for wines o... Read More
