  • The Sunset magazine that arrived today had a (very) short article on some relatively modestly-priced domestic wines.  In that article was a breakdown of one producer's cost for a bottle Pinot Noir.  The producer is Alit.  I am unfamiliar with this winery, but it looks like they are in Oregon.20.6% -- Price of the fruit. 7.8% -- Labor--winery sta...

  • Just saw this offer from Chambers Street. Have had earlier vintages of this label (both whites and reds, though more of the whites with raclette, etc.) when snowboarding in Chamonix and Val d'Isère, and it's (very) good stuff.
