  • Back to GdP's comment.  Wine prices, esp of "collectible" stuff, have gone up faster than inflation.  A lot of the luxury buyers--out to impress--aren't very familiar with sourcing back vintages, they just know it's really hard to get on some mailing list, so they buy new wine from that list once they get to the top.  Someone who bought a great ...

  • Greg, you were right when you said it's tough to keep a forum going. Though this does seem to be an especially slow week all over the place...on the road, in business, etc. good to see people take some time out.  Read More

  • This is just a teaser to start, as I only arrived home a few hours ago after about nine days in Cuba without Internet access.  That was tough, but you know what was tougher?  The lack of quality wine.  In fact, there was a lack of most everything we are used to in the USA, but I'll elaborate on that later - manana as they say in Cuba.  First thi...

  • Okay, we're counting down to the end of the year.  With three drinking weeks left, start nominating your wines of the year.  And, if you like, nominate a wine experience of the year. I'm going to have to think about the WOTY for a while, and I'll update this OP as things occur to me, but I'm going to say it wasn't a year full of head turning win...

  • Invino?  They are also a flash site, and I have used them for that.  Bought a few things, but their shipping costs are kind of opaque, so I use other sites more.I have ordered only wines that I am somewhat familiar with from them--haven't really gone out on a limb on things I cannot vet independently.  And here's a reason to be wary:  Jeff HIll,...

    Forum post in the topic invino, anybody use them?


  • So several years ago while touring the CA wine country I came across a nice place where I liked both the proprieters and the wine. I signed up for their monthly wine club. A month later instead of getting my wine I get a notice that they can't ship to MA. Somehow I remained on their mailing list and now they can ship to MA so I ordered my very f... Read More

  • Mike did that with his own wines, which he tastes every day.  I imagine he could do it with some others as well.  And I can imagine that GregT can do that with Riojas because he tastes a lot of them, does so frequently, and pays a lot of attention to them.  But there's a real limit to human perception. Note that GregT cannot do the same with tho... Read More
