  • I once, a few years back, almost pulled the trigger on a real estate purchase in the hills back behind the Big Sur coastline. Was reminiscing on that today, and wondered why I never hear about wine from that area. Is it because I'm so far away and out of touch and there actually are barrels and barrels of wine being made there, or because the cu... Read More

  • Mark - barrels are a whole subject unto themselves. The go-to guy for info about them is Mel Knox, who has been selling them for years. Another guy is Alvaro Palacios, who sold them for a while before he became famous in Priorat.But briefly, barriques are relatively small barrels. Many people use them to refer only to "Bordeaux" style barrels, w... Read More

  • To cork or not to cork? That was the question posed by a team of researchers from the Federal University of Pampa's (Brazil) Oenology Department who published their results this fall. When asked directly whether the type of bottle seal influenced their decision about which wine to purchase, about 14 percent of the 70 wine consumers surveyed for ... Read More

  • The winemakers I speak with are doing it as an environmentally friendly approach. Less waste and less strain on resources. The thing about rodents is true but mainly a European issue.Personally I like it. It saves one step in opening the bottle, it allows me to see if there is any issue with the sealing of the cork over time and it does not hide... Read More

  •  From GregT:The disadvantage of screw caps has nothing to do with the sealing ability, it's that you have to incur an initial expense to change your bottling line and more importantly, they're slightly fragile. You can compromise the seal by bashing the end of the bottle. If you do, you dent the cap and you risk air leaks. Cork partisans sometim... Read More
