  • I really do not know what I have,except they are a mix of Burg and Bord. The are laying horizontal in wooden crates stacked up so access is not particularly easy. But then I planned not to touch them for a long time.The storage I believe is adequate as the basement stays cool year-round. I believe them to be good wines in an OK year but not grea... Read More

  • Hi All-Have not had a chance to get on here for a while. After my daughter was born in 98 and the wines started coming out a couple years later I started buying 98s from Bugundy and Bordeaux as I came across them. A couple days ago I opened one for the first time to celebrate her getting into the USC drama school. All of a sudden we're Trojan fo... Read More

  • Getting back to wine for a moment, last night we hosted a wine dinner with our neighbors Debbie and Rick.  They brought over two bottles, a Napa Merlot (2014 Arietta Merlot Hudson Vineyards) and an Anderson Valley Pinot Noir (2015 Twomey Pinot Noir).  We started with that Trump Blanc de Blanc that was given to us last month (I didn't like it muc...

  • I've got IKEA racking in our basement...er....wine cellar and it's worked fine for us.  No big earthquakes out here (there was a 4.X one maybe 10 years ago) and I haven't had a bottle dropped yet.  When we get new wines, I stand them upright and Sandra then puts them in the appropriate wine rack.  She generally makes room for the new ones by mov...

  • Not since my first thermoelectric wine cooler have I had a storage malfunction, until this week. I remember a few years back when EMark shared the story of his wine fridge collapse where multiple bottles were lost to breakage. Fast forward 4 years or so and I have an "Oh shit!" moment to share.I was looking for a bottle of wine to drink Monday n... Read More

  • Well, the example that comes most quickly to mind is VJB Cellars. Since I moved here, the prices of their wines have gone up steadily (roughly doubling) and I wonder if the quality of the wine has improved as much over the last ten years. During the same period, the company has spent how many millions building their hewn-stone tasting room and e... Read More

  • You might also contact CellarRaiders out east.Some more info - some auction places will charge you up to 30 percent of your sale price. Ask about their fees when you talk to them. In addition, you are unlikely to get anywhere near the top end of the prices you're seeing because you are an unknown quantity with no history.The big auction places l... Read More

    Forum post in the topic Hello Snooth!


  • I would like to say I have read a lot of posts and find more of these fascinating than not. I have been trying to educate myself about wines, not because I indulge but because I have inherited some wine from my fathers estate and want to part with them, The research I have gathered is minimal and somewhat frustrating at times.I have some very ni...

  • While going through my grandmother's basement, we found 2 cases of wine. The first, 1978 Liebfraumilch Qualitatswein (with black pieces floating in it and an internet search that deemed it garbage even when bottled), and the second, Paul Masson Monterey County Chardonnay 1978 (Second Bottling). I've not been able to find anything out about the l... Read More

  • Oh, yeah, I drink Pamid all the time... no, really, never even heard of the grape.  Thracian wine, it's going to be huge in 2017.  Because someone will pay off the President and he'll sign an order requiring us to drink it.  And that Trump wine--honestly, you should have avoided that when the Kluges owned it, too.Okay, enough politics.  Been mea...
