A new year provides the perfect opportunity to try new things, but how far will you go? Many wine drinkers cling to familiar grape varieties or settle for what’s in easy reach. Don’t miss out, wine lover. There are between 5,000 and 10,000 varieties of Vitis Vinifera, the plant species responsible for nearly all wine grapes, planted around the ... Read More
White wines are a summer classic, but it has been a long summer. There is a good chance that you are surfeit with white wine by now. Ultra-hip rosé and orange wines aren’t your only options.

This book looks enticing but was looking for feedback from anyone who may have read it. Thanks Read More
A few days ago I participated in a tasting/pairing event that featured white wines. One of the wines was Chablis, and, while discussing this one, the facilitator stated that it was fermented in steel and had never seen oak. I asked if that was common for the region and he responded that it was absolutely the case, and was so for all white wines... Read More

This past Saturday, The Washington Post reporter Dave McIntyre presented a well-worded defense of the validity of Georgian wines as formidable quaffers for the Western world. His premise was simple and stated in his headl... Read More
We feel that if a geographic area has shown wine excellence throughout a long history, then even more sublime heights can be reached with the addition of a dose of passion and attention. Campania was the breadbasket of Ancient Rome. Fruits, nuts, grains, seafood, meats, olive oil – authors from Virgil to Pliny to Columella agreed that if those i... Read More
Orange wine is something I feel I have read about more often than I have seen it in the past few years. It is definitely not on every wine list I encounter nor is it taking up a lot of shelf space in the places where I buy wine. When the opportunity for a taste has arisen usually as a temporary novelty on a wine bar list, I am always eager to tr... Read More
