  • 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...

  • EM - That figures.  I go out of my way to try Paso Robles and I get swindled in the end.  I suppose that grapes sourced outside of the AVA are not considered from the AVA, even if the winery is within the AVA.  I can't argue with that.  Today my spousal unit (that would be Sandra of course) is at one of the Smithsonian museums for a full day dis...

  • I've mentioned elsewhere my aversion to flashy wine storage areas. I've mentioned the extensive renovations we've recently undergone that will enable us to survive three more years of having two teen girls, while making our abode a welcoming stopover for people as tall as GregT and as numerous as JD and his family.  (We draw the line at families...

  • It's really fancy, and with enough insulation they can hold the temperature even though it shares a wall with the kitchen, but I don't understand the window into the dining room.  Does it open?  It's just so showy and so inefficient and they must have some room elsewhere, since it's their house. I've become really peevish about these trophy wine...

  • Hi everyone, I'm finally about to install my first wine rack after gradually building up a collection. Very excited about it! However I wanted some advice on choosing the right type? I'm currently looking at oak wine racks and I have read about a company called Wine Racks http://www.wineracks.co.uk/wine-racks/ who manufacture a large range of wi... Read More

  • Whoops, re read my post above.  That bottle will be good--let's go with a simpler construction. Might not be my style exactly, or maybe it will, but Lacombes is making that wine for someone, a lot of someones (at least those that can afford or splurge) and it racks up good press and comments.Wow, JD, that is some tight space in the hallway.  The...

  • Ah, the lovely painted labels.  I almost hate to recycle the bottle.Yesterday I ripped out a strip of wood trim that was between our house siding and the concrete wall of our basement.  The recent termite inspection had noted some dry rot in the strip and evidence of a previous insect (not termite) infestation.  After I got the old piece of wood...

  • Proper storage is crucial for keeping wine longer.  It may not be wine that will get better, but temperature fluctuations kill the wine over time.  I had a 2000 Catena malbec earlier this year that was kept in a basement type cellar and it was pretty dead.  Drinkable, but it might as well have been water.I'd be surprised if there was much happen...
