  • Wine myths are often unspoken but incredibly pervasive. Their looming presence may prevent wine novices from feeling confident about how they drink. Most would agree that wine experiences are best enjoyed with friends, but myths can hinder otherwise joyous wine drinking occasions. “Sparkling wine MUST be enjoyed in a flute glass, or else!” “Wine...

  • Saturday (16 July) started off with me trying to finish the assembly of a multi-piece IKEA cabinet structure that would sit below our new 75" Sony XBR75X940D television.  The old 'coffee table' wasn't going to cut it anymore, but I was going to still use my stereo system for a semi-decent audio experience.  Once I had the cabinets fully assemble...

  • EM, you have made an excellent posting of your Hollywood Bowl experience and if I remember correctly, the last time I was there must have been in the 1970's too.  I haven't posted lately because we've been so busy with the painters in our house since 05 July (they finished up on 13 July); we had three rooms painted - the foyer, the family room a...

  • MJ - We belong to the Repris wine club, not the mailing list.  We belong to eight wine clubs currently, and it gets a little expensive in the spring and fall when they start shipping.  If you want more details about their wine club, send me a private message.Today was Cat Tuesday and I am worn out at this point.  We've also had painters in our h...

  • Since dailies aren't usually wines that I store long term--good early drinkers like Barbera, Dolcetto, simpler Chiantis, roses, and whites--they don't actually take much storage space, and rarely in the basement.  They aren't going to go bad if the house gets up to 78-80 for a couple days (which is how long it takes to break a "heat wave" with t...

  • Not as exciting this weekend, at least not this Saturday.  We spent the whole afternoon with the grandkids, watching them at our son's house while Sandra worked on weeding and redoing their front yard of a small 2-bedroom townhome.  Small yes, but at least they didn't pay rent for numerous years before buying a home, so it works for now.  They'v...

  • Wine dinner at our house with our neighbors Rick & Debbie last night.  These are the folks that got us into Duckhorn wines, so you know we were drinking the good stuff.  It started at 6 PM and I think we wrapped it up around 11 PM after 4.5 bottles of wine between the four of us.  Sandra stayed up to watch SNL but I headed to bed!  We started of...

  • DMCKER is absolutely right.  Figure out your needs first - then your wants.  Do you have a basement? That will help out a lot.  I live in northern Wisconsin and have had a basement storage (wine cellar) AND a smaller wine frig for long term storage for special wines.  Think it out first, some of of best, quiet, retrospective happen in my cellar ...

  • Okay, in additon to picking up a case of Barolo/Barbaresco via trade from JD back in April, I've been stocking up on bits and pieces of things.  I bought 4 bottles of old vintage Beaulieu from K&L for $30 per, a pair of 1990 and a pair of 1996.  One 1990 went down the drain, one sits in the cellar waiting to see if it suffered the same fate whil...
