America’s first vertical tasting of the fine wines of Podere Sapaio from Bolgheri in Coastal Tuscany took place at my restaurant, Undici Taverna Rustica in Rumson, NJ, this past year. Owner, enologist Massimo Piccin was present and told us, “We are wine. We are men and women winemakers who transform grapes into wine by means of our know-how, our... Read More
I spearheaded this incredible custom design last month. The ambient temperature in my region is approximately 55 degrees throughout the day; ideal for harnessing the explosive potential lurking within this vast selection. The tight seal on this cellar door makes for the perfect, dank environment. I have plans to expand later this year. Okay, eno... Read More
The major auction market is bullish on bubbly. Recent auctions of Champagne at Bonham's, Christie's and Wally's are seeing their posh products leave the stage at prices which exceed high estimates. Bonham's saw a bottle of 1914 vintage Pol Roger sell for £ 5,640 at their October 24 when the high estimate for the World War I-era bubbly was £4,0... Read More
I heard somewhere that white wines should be stored at the bottom of the home wine rack rather than at the top. Supposedly whites like it cooler (the old heat rises, cold falls theory), Now I know that wine's enemy is heat and changing temperatures, My wine rack is a 44 bottle system which stands about 4 feet high and I do keep the whites on the...

I noticed that OutThere purchased seven bottles of a particular wine at $14 and it occurred to me that it was a $100 purchase, and enough to last about a week. So I got curious, and mentioned in the thread that it would be interesting to know how much per week people spent. Well, Emark has better records and more time on his hands than I do, a... Read More
This comes up a lot, and dmcker said something interesting about it that sparked some thoughts:I don't think wine should be rated only double blindFirst, I think "double blind" is a bit of a misnomer. It's a term from clinical trials in medical research, referring to the fact that both the clinician measuring the results and the patient don't k... Read More
A couple of news items I was pondering today.First, Robert Parker came out with his ratings for the 2009 Bordeaux vintage. Ever the masochist, I decided to go look at some prices in the marketplace after the ratings were released. Some samplings:2009 Chatau Latour 100 points $21,500 a case2009 Chateau Marg... Read More

I've been thinking about wine drinking in 2011 for at least the last few months of 2010. By nature, I'm a huge fan of Barolo and Barbaresco (basically anything Nebbiolo) but I find that my desire to drink what I like, limits me in some ways. There's only so much money to go around, right? I've spent a lot of time drinking through Italy. I'd sa... Read More
Well, there are wines you dream about, and then there are wines you can only dream about. Rarity plays an important role in the pricing of the most expensive wines. They are usually great, but what truly distinguishes these bottles is the fact that there are more people chasing them than there are bottles. It's simple supply and demand.So, what'... Read More
