  • Greg, don't even read this!Yesterday I hosted a pinot noir event.  It was a blind tasting of three BC and one California.  Talk about getting out of the box.  For me this is tantamount to cross-dressing.  It started because Chester introduced me to the Kettle Valley "Hayman" reserve Pinot last year.  I really liked it, so when I found one (83 ca...

  • Barrels are not being replaced by stainless steel for economic reasons. I don't know who started that story but it's utterly false. Back in the 1970s when the US wine industry was first taking off, women were entering the workplace for the first time.

  • Is it me, or are oaky chards out of fashion? Nowadays most every producer I encounter boasts about their stainless steel tanks.
