  • The weather was great for us all week, we loved Victoria, and glad we got to see you DV. Ryan was all smiles as we headed back to the ship, so he enjoyed as well.Thought the Meyer was one of the better new world Pinot's, in the top 1/4th of those $20+, and this goes for only $25 according to DV. So if I was a new world PN fan I'd definitely have... Read More

  • In the East Bay, esp my neck of the woods (North Oakland/Berkeley), it's an embarrassment of riches in this as in so many other things.  Andronico's, a formerly swanky market, is all but gone, and AG Ferrari is closing up its last shop after years of sinking into dismal faux Italian market-hood. But others have taken their place, albeit not in e... Read More

  • OK, what's your favorite market in your area for buying good meats, dairy, produce, etc. when you want to prepare a proper meal, likely accompanied by wine? Or just for everyday living? And what do they provide that you value so?Last couple of times I was through San Fran I realized Bi-Rite in the Mission would be mine there. Very much appreciat... Read More

  • Thanks, that was pretty interesting.  Even the perceived "baby killers" were pretty closely grouped with the rest.  After drinking some 2011 Cali wines recently, I am thinking of going back and scavenging some.  I think the cool conditions and careful selection of better makers will mean many of the wines are more classic than post-90s drink-ear...

  • We flew out west in early March (04 March 2017) to continue our annual wine tasting / visiting trips with relatives and friends.  The hotels and other places to stay were all set, but the wineries on the visit list were not totally determined in advance.  We planned two days of tasting in the Willamette Valley (McMinnville, Oregon) and two days ...

  • Hello.  I am 38 years old and have typically always enjoyed wine.  I am trying to pay more attention to what I have been drinking.  Traditionally, I have purchase wine in the $10-$20 price range at Costco and have casually been drinking various wines, mainly reds in the winter and whites in the summer.  I recently tried some wine at a lower pric...

  • 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

    Forum post in the topic Shall we have a post today?


  • 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...
