A few days ago I participated in a tasting/pairing event that featured white wines. One of the wines was Chablis, and, while discussing this one, the facilitator stated that it was fermented in steel and had never seen oak. I asked if that was common for the region and he responded that it was absolutely the case, and was so for all white wines... Read More
I mentioned this a while ago, but didn't get around to the post. We stayed from September to end of December at a condominium in a complex built in the '70s. They've renovated and rebuilt since then (there were several major lawsuits for construction defects--built on fill!), but the architecture and the vibe is still very of that period. Our u...

Not much wine talk this weekend, so sharing a few thoughts on the subject.A friend of mine recently said "there's only two days in a year I don't drink coffee", and I've also noticed that I'm pretty much drinking a cup every morning, sometimes iced tea with lunch. For a little while, I even got in to ordering a french press while out for breakfa... Read More
It never hurts to let things breath. This past week the Irish Examiner recounted the history of the decanter, noting its roots in antiquity and tracking its lineage from there through the Renaissance and to the present day. “Decanters were never just a matter of getting the wine to the glass in good condition,” reporter Kya de Longchamps wrote. ...

You need a wine that tells a tale; one preferably told over a candle-lit dinner.

I reached out to some wine professionals to get their opinions about these wines, but before I turn the stage over to them I’d like to explore the situation briefly.Before we consider the value of these wines...

In the coming weeks I’ll be writing up my experiences at ProWein 2014, the great Wine and Spirits show held in Dusseldorf Germany each year. This trade show, and it is just that, exclusive to the trade and that rule is strictly enforced, is one of the great experiences wine professional can indulge in each year. This year’s edition of the fair w... Read More
If you're more than a casual wine drinker, if you follow wine the way bookies follow horses and TMZ follows starlets, then you're familiar with the Natural Wine movement. How could you not be? In the last couple of years, it seems as if every cogent wine commentator in print from San Francisco to Sydney has seen fit to write about the phenomenon... Read More
I am looking to branch out from what I already know and love. I know that I prefer sweet wines and my favorites are Reisling and Moscato. I'm not sure of what region but they are both off the shelf brands...I'm pretty sure one was a Kendall Jackson if that helps at all. I kind of like the sweeter White Zinfandels and sometimes Rose or Blush W... Read More
One of the oldest producers around, Caves Jean Bourdy has been making wine since 1475 in Arlay, Jura. We’re talking the Late Middle Ages. The mind reels. Currently run by 15th generation Jean Philippe and Jean-François, the brothers Bourdy make wine with respect to their tradition. Lucky for evolved-wine enthusiasts, the domaine has accumulated...
