  • The middle of February has long been a time to celebrate love. The ancient Greeks and Romans held festivals to honor fertility and marriage. The fourteenth century English poet Geoffrey Chaucer wrote of love birds choosing their mate on St. Valentine’s Day. During the same period in France, King Charles VI issued a charter directing members of h... Read More

  • Sandra and I were fortunate yesterday to attend a quickly sold out (57 minutes after the e-mail went out to the RdV Ambassador members, it was fully booked) 'Introduction to Blind Tasting' class at our favorite Northern Virginia winery, RdV.  Getting our two slots in this class was tough, as we didn't call them until 5 or 6 hours after their e-m...

  • Hey, I hear that VTs are coming back, with one scheduled for March!  Not to steal the thunder, so I won't leak what the region/grape is going to be (regulars, watch your mail boxes if you live in the US), but it's going to be good if my inbox is any indication.I'm opening up the floor to ask the question, "Who do you think will be the host?"  Ma...

  • Okay, GregT, I'm going to go cheap and get the AC instead of a cooling unit when I do mine.  In all other respects, I am going to make mine pretty nice if/when we get the permits for the addition.  I kind of like RBA's set up with the Ikea racks, but it's not very space efficient.As to the 70 in summer issue, if it doesn't stay there and the win...

  • What those two above said. Not that hard to frame in the heater and furnace. Use metal studs and zip screws and you can do it in an afternoon. I built my wine cellar and made a custom door and the materials cost me around $1000 including insulation, wonderboard, paint, light and shelves which I made ripping some plywood. Your shelves are much ni... 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

  • Be prepared to open that wallet a little wider for your premium wines this year. Fine wines – those priced above $20 – most likely will fetch higher prices this year, according to Silicon Valley Bank's 2015 “State of the Wine Industry” report released earlier this month.  “After finishing the year at the top end of our predicted growth in sales ...

  • Due to popular demand (don't ask where that demand came from or you'll spoil my fun), we appear to need some new wine discussion topics.  This topic was only relevant to Thursday as a test case but was subsequently expanded to cover the weekend too.  What ever you bring up in this topic should either occur on a Thursday - Sunday, or it could be ...

  • "...you find comments that it has emerged as a 90-rated wine."Who? Where? Whathow?? I know next to nothing about Jeff Leve, and am too lazy today to chase down some of his TNs to see what they tell me about his taste compared to mine. But I'll go along with what he says in the Wine Cellar Insider, even if he doesn't know how to use commas:"1991 ... Read More

  • Today is the High Holy Day--National Zinfandel Day.  So, we are going to crack open another one from the estate sale trove.  As you can see, I have a ready backup.   Will report back on findings, later.Edit some hours later.  We're going with the Guenoc, tonight.  I'm about a half-a-glass into it, and, while this certainly not any kind of wine e...
