  • In Piemonte, esp Barolo DOCG, nebbiolo is "only" grown on south facing sites because it is a late ripener and needs the longest growing season.  The rule of thumb is that it's planted in the spots where the snow melts first. so, since we're in the Northern Hemisphere, that means south facing.  As the market for Barolo has taken off, plantings ha...

  • Hello everyone, I am relatively new to wine collecting and I'd like to establish a storage area in my house to store and age wine.I have a unique space in my house that would be really cool to convert to a "wine cellar", but I'm not sure how to prepare it. It is a space under my stairs, that is built out as a small storage room. My kids have use... Read More

  • Yeah Greg, the thing about Cinema is we unconsciously think the actors and actresses continue to look as they did in the movies we saw them in. Am sure it took a lot of physical training and dieting and makeup to get the two as presentable as they were in the most recent Star Wars iteration. Harrison Ford, plane crash and all, seems to have weat... Read More

  • Post here about wines that used to satisfy, but for whatever reason (corporate buyout, founder dying, price gouging or other repositionings resulting from lusting lunges towards greater monetary reward, etc., etc. ad nauseum) have either disappeared or now become a disappointment. The more story, the better.I'll get the ball rolling with some si... Read More

  • Interestingly enough, was an offer from our friend Ian Cauble that falls right within this thread's discussion:  Massimo Clerico, Nebbiolo, Lessona DOC Piedmont, Italy 2008 If there is one lesson that is common amongst all the great red wines of the world, it is that nothing can substitute for optimal bottle age. You can decant a young wine t... Read More

  • Planning to do some exploring into Italy's other wine varietals, those without the fanfare or popularity of Sangiovese, Nebbiolo, Barbera, and Dolcetto, etc.First up is a Ruche with a few years bottle age by Montalbera, apparently a lighter wine that was traditionally brought out for special occassions...figure this should make for a nice aperti...

  • I’d never heard of Godello until a few years ago but this Spanish white grape variety is now a regular on U.K. wine shelves. What’s more, it’s here to stay; it’s easy to pronounce, the wines taste good and, let’s be honest, we all like to tell our mates about a ‘new’ wine. Godello comes from north-west Spain where the vineyard areas of Bierzo, V... Read More

  • I am not going to damn the Cotes for hawking their product here.  It is wine-oriented, and it may be of interest to some readers.  Their sales technique is clumsy, but I am even OK with that.  (Great response, OT. Hilarious.)I actually think the product has merit.  I am not in the market, and, frankly, I do see some issues with it that would dis... Read More

    Forum post in the topic Wine Storage


  • As my hobby progresses, I'm thinking of ways to store my bottled wine. I don't have any space to convert to a proper cellar and am reluctant to buy an expensive wine fridge to store 200 bottles. Also, I have no basement. That said, I'm worried about aging my bottles on regular racks or in boxes in the living room or closet, as the house temp is ... Read More
