  • So it has actually been awhile since I have had a corked wine.  Part of that has been sticking to certain producers with which I have had a good experience (and leaving some that have great wine, but TCA issues). I am sensitive to TCA, but had, in the past few years, additionally been a victim of too much brett in some pinots.  All small lot pro... Read More

  • Welcome Howard,I'm from Victoria.  Jackson Triggs has some okay stuff, but there's far better BC wine, but I know you can't get most of it in Ontario.  It's likewise for us, we don't get any of your good wine as most of it is sold before it can get to stores there. EMark is correct about the cork thing.  I love tradition and I love uncorking a b...

  • Howard, you are now our Ontario wines expert.  Most of the Canadians who pop up here tend to be from BC.  I confess to being a California wine bigot.  So, I am completely unfamiliar with the wines you listed.  It's not clear to me where the Heron Red and the Jackson Triggs are from.  I am on the same page with you on using wines that I deem to b...

  • Friuli (or more properly Friuli Venezia Giulia) lies in Italy’s northeastern corner. Protected from the northern winds by the Austrian and Slovenian Alps, Friuli’s climate is tempered by the Adriatic.

  • Charles Shaw Pinot Grigio California 2010

    Snoothrank:

    The Pinot Grigio is an excellent wine. My only recommendation is that do not use the artificial cork. It is very difficult to open. Use instead Screw Cap. (Matanza Winery is using it!) Easier to open and less expensive for you. You should consider also to 1.5 liter bottles. Andre, San Rafael, CA Read More
