Just back from Chablis with a few thoughts. The first is that the Chablisienne should try and find another name for Petit Chablis. I often hear wine enthusiasts say it’s “Chablis that didn’t make the grade”, “from young vines or poor vineyards”. Sadly, this is not surprising as the name does suggest an inferior wine but after two days of tasting... Read More

SS, way to give yourself away!I think the OP really just wanted to find a way to get a variety of under the radar wines from California or wherever in the way you wander into a tasting room out on the road, not so much that he was going to order things after researching for himself. Basically, find someone to "curate" them for him. Which is wh... Read More
"SS, way to give yourself away!"I thought Kris Kringle qualified all vendors worldwide, at least when he had to outsource (and I think even elven magic would find grape growing difficult at the North Pole)?
