  • Thevenet is my always-better-than-decent-fallback-standard for wine in their areas. Not necessarily Himalayan peaks with them, but absolutely no Death Valleys, either. Thoroughly reliably tasty.Didn't I see a ham in your pictures somewhere, JD? Good Beaujolais would work for that, too, though I might prefer a riesling... Read More

  • I'm pretty bad about naming the 10 different Crus of Beajolais but the article I have linked does a good job of explaining it, and maybe I'll be getting closer to becoming familIar with them, because taking a shot on a bottle of J.P. Thevenet last week for Turkey Day really turned my head. It has that direct and effortless quality with good back... Read More

  • I was responding to Mark. The wine in question does not have a dry cork. It's only a couple years old. Being in the fridge for a day will ave absolutely no effect in it. Read More

  • I heard this recently, and it took me by complete surprise.Suppose I pull out one of my favorite Ceritas Chardonnays and chill it down in our KitchenAid refrigerator, planning to have it wih my dinner.  Suppose further that my dinner plans change, and I don't open that bottle.  I'm saving this bottle for a special meal.  (OK, most regulars here ...

  • DM,I don't think BC really has something akin to a 'cult' wine or winery yet.  There are some very collected wines though.  There are several wines that are $100-$130, but honestly, I don't think they're worth that.  They're good, but that's a LOT of dough and I could buy some killer Barolo, Brunello, Amarone, you name it.  Leonetti (almost).  F...

  • Forgive me if this seems like spam.  It's the only opportunity to buy and experience some good BC wine from the comfort of your own home in the USA.   Greg T actually told me about it and I was surprised I was unaware.  He bought a couple and I think he's pleased thus far.  Anyway, I think the guy who runs the program is in California and he imp...

  • A friend recommended I check out Avec, a little hot spot on a different side of town, though only a few miles from where I was staying. I got in there, and it was completely packed on a Monday night. Crazy! I tried to sit down at the bar, but I was promptly told that the hostess was using that seat, so I squeezed myself out of the place and went... Read More

    Forum post in the topic Two Days in Chicago

  • Here for business, but finding the time to work in some wine escapades. Last year I met several Chicago wine people at a Burgundy tasting, and earlier this year some more at La Paulee. So on short notice I decided to let them all know I was coming to town, and luckily I got a good tip on an excellent restaurant near my hotel, Nico Osteria. Have ... Read More

Both from me and from Wine Tourism in Portugal. I am going to copy here an excerpt of my Douro Valley Wine Travel guide.
