  • I debated whether to post this here or on RBA's <$20 wines.  I decided that here would be more appropriate, because I don't know if these are worth more than $20, which is the other half of Al's theme.In the last few days I've made some runs to Costco and Total Wine (with a 20% Off coupon burning a hole in my wallet).  These runs were for, mostl...

  • "with regard to Pinot Noir, I still prefer the ones from Oregon"You need to drink a lot more Burgundy, and of the others I mentioned, too.  ;-)   Oregon's getting there but still on the road, not yet fully arrived IMHO, even if I enjoy many of theirs. Was writing on these boards about Soter and Drouhin, for example, last decade. I certainly comm... Read More

  • RC - I don't know details on how she orders wine for her two shops, but here's the link to the shop I visit and maybe you can send her an email request.  I was expected to just buy 4 of the case she ordered, but it was much cheaper than I expected ($16.99 vs. my guesstimate of $30 a bottle), so I bought 6.  There is 6 bottles left in her store b...

  • Emark - you're right to a large extent, and there's a LOT of swill in Europe. But the advantage they have is that in many cases, they've been farming the same land and making wine for generations. Then you get an energetic importer who finds a co-op and helps them tweak their wine. Suddenly it's pretty good and their price point isn't covering l... Read More

  • Have you ever tasted ten wines in sixty minutes? In my experience this is one of the best ways to get a crash course in a grape or region. You’ll come away with a wealth of understanding and ready to learn even more. I shared this kind of tasting experience with Advanced Sommelier Jill Zimorski plus several hundred wine writers and wine lovers d... Read More

  • Sometimes we get used to paying upwards of $100 for a nice bottle of wine from the wine shop.  Those are the 'good days' that we want to remember, but soon you notice your bank account is dropping faster than Trumps approval rating, so you start looking for more value-oriented wines that are tasty in their own right.When you find a nice wine tha...

  • Americans seem to be growing in curiosity about Spain. Numbers indicate Americans traveling to Spain are on the rise each year, while at the same time Spanish restaurants and tapas bars are spreading across the United States. There is even a growing awareness that much like France and Italy, Spain has a number of diverse wine regions with grapes... Read More

  • Ah, the Campesino wines.  I am on the mailing list but I have not purchased from them yet.So, I did a little research.  Of course you guys are generally right, but my generalized thinking isn't far off the mark either due to the abundance of cheaper Zinfandel wines.  Here is an forum posting that you can read further if you go to this link.Aging...

  • News travels very fast in our hyper-digital age—sometimes too fast. Or maybe it’s not so much the speed of communication as the nature of the news itself. Here’s an example: In the fall and winter of 2014, articles, tweets and posts began circulating about the disastrous weather in Europe and the toll it was taking on European winegrowing areas....

  • Riesling Made With Organic Grapes 2013

    Snoothrank:

    This 2013 Riesling was another clear-out from Grocery outlet, selling for $2.99 rather than the $10-12 it is supposed to sell for. At that price, it's a screaming bargain. I wish this were a bit drier, as it's lightly sweet, despite the label claiming it to be between moderately dry and moderately sweet. It would make a fine aparatif, as well... Read More
