At Ancient and Modern Wines Ltd we concentrate very much on the Ancient side of fine wine. Most of our stock is at least 10 years old and thus mature or at least semi mature. All wines sourced are of the best possible provenance. Anniversary wines play a big part of our fine wine list so whether your celebration is for a 20th, 30th 40th, 50th (or more!) Anniversary or Birthday we can generally suggest something to suit. If your choice of vintage falls in a weak year we always can recommend the purchase of a fortified wine such as Port or Madeira. As we have stock going back to 1898 most birthdays can be happily accommodated! – Description from iskicm

  • Carignan AKA Mazuelo, Bovale Grande, Cariñena and Carignane, is, for most wine lovers, a bit of an enigma. We know it’s out there, component in many blends, particularly from Spain and France, where it was the most widely planted variety in the country through much of the 1980s. But what do we really know of Carignane? Not so much because there ... Read More

  • After a brief introduction to the the state of Washington this past Monday I reported on my  visits to wineries in Walla Walla on Tuesday. Today I am reporting on visits both in Prosser, which lies roughly between Walla Walla and Seattle in the Yakima Valley as well as to wineries located basically within Seattle’s metropolitan footprint. As I’v... Read More

  • The truth is that I don’t drink very much Cabernet these days, opting instead for other wines that fit my lifestyle a bit better. It’s not that I don’t like Cabernet.In fact I can honestly say that I still love Cabernet, though that love is mostly satisfied by older examples from California and some newer releases from places like South Africa. ...

  • So far I’ve worked my way through a pretty impressive set of wines that would make for some splendid gifting. I’ve covered Cabernet, Pinot Noir, the wines of France and today I turn my attention towards Italy. Without a doubt my favorite wine producing country; Italy is home to more variety and styles of wine than anyplace else on the planet. As... Read More

  • Our friend, Outthere, has made us aware of the Historic Vineyard Society, and I, personally, have enjoyed reading about his experiences with the society, and his interactions with some of the producers who source from these vineyards.  Yesterday, Mrs. Emark handed me an article entitled "The Battle for America's Oldest Vines" that she had clippe...

  • There are few great values in the world of aged fine wine, and it’s not a growth category. In fact, the number of options available to those with a modest budget continues to shrink quite rapidly as the global pool of wine lovers expands. Among the treats still out there to be discovered (though not for long), traditional Rioja remains an amazin... Read More

  • Pinot has been a much celebrated topic here on Snooth over the years I've participated, and it's obviously one of the more celebrated grapes in the wine world. It'll no doubt be a story line I plan on focusing on in years to come so I thought I'd start a thread, logging experiences. Sorry in advance, Greg T.Having said that, I've been mostly dis...

  • Being a cab lover I am hesitant to stray from what I like. On a recent occasion I had the opportunity to try a Zinfandel and to my amazement, it had some of the same attributes of the cabernets I love so well. I perused Snooth and stopped on a particular zin from Bogle vineyards. Gregory Dal Piaz gave it a nice rating and being a member of Snoot... Read More

  • . . . and, boy, are my arms tired.I don't know when I first heard the term "Super Tuscan."  I'm guessing that it was 10-12 years ago.  I really did not know what it meant--me being very focussed on my California world.I did, of course, learn that a Super Tuscan was a wine that was made from grapes that were outside the Tuscany tradition--specifi...
