  • I could hear The Good Wife in the other room as I posted.  I can't really watch episodic television.  I get too restless. But I know it has a following on here.I was going to post multiple pictures, but none of the others came out well, posting them was turning into a chore (gotta clean up my phone's camera roll) and I lazily did not go back and...

  • I've mentioned elsewhere my aversion to flashy wine storage areas. I've mentioned the extensive renovations we've recently undergone that will enable us to survive three more years of having two teen girls, while making our abode a welcoming stopover for people as tall as GregT and as numerous as JD and his family.  (We draw the line at families...

  • When I first became interested in wine I used to get Brunello di Montalcino and Rosso di Montalcino mixed up, never mind having difficulty pronouncing them. A few years down the line I’d sorted it; both are from the Tuscan town of Montalcino in Central Italy, from the same grape variety, and come in a similar shaped bottle. Or had I? A recent vi...

  • Hi everyone, I'm finally about to install my first wine rack after gradually building up a collection. Very excited about it! However I wanted some advice on choosing the right type?

  • DM - The window is above ground - the lower sill is basically "ground level."  I will be blacking it out in some way so that it does not let as much light into this cellar space.  The window faces to the East and this is the South East corner of my basement. DV - My furnace is in the basement.  It is on the complete opposite side of the house.  ...

  • You'll notice, Mark, the term is in English, so this is aimed at the export market, particularly North America.Not sure if you're up on the difference between filtered or fined wine, and that which hasn't been, but this is a basic question for any winemaker. Fining and more recently filtering aim at removing particulate matter that may cause clo... Read More

  • We should all be worried about our use of energy, unless you have a lot more solar than I will.  And I bet you don't.  Mark, those things pictured above are actual rooms, not cabinets.  They can be built however you like, but building with glass like that is not done for practical reasons.  Sure, if it's a cabinet, then you have to make it look ...

  • Ok, new year and time for a new topic of discussion.  Just yesterday I opened this Pinot Noir from California that initially sounded promising.  First  - it was given to Sandra as a retirement gift so it was free.  Second - a Pinot Noir bottled in St. Helena CA, so it has to be decent, right? and Third - a nice looking label.  Well, this 2014 Me...

  • I mentioned this a while ago, but didn't get around to the post.  We stayed from September to end of December at a condominium in a complex built in the '70s. They've renovated and rebuilt since then (there were several major lawsuits for construction defects--built on fill!), but the architecture and the vibe is still very of that period. Our u...
