  • Early in my exploration of wine, I settled on Brunello Di Montalcino as one of my favorites, and eventually as my single favorite. Since then, I’ve been asked many times, “Why this wine? What’s so special about Brunello?”  Some have wondered why I would have embraced a wine that they view as “big” and masculine, since people new to wine tend tow... Read More

  • We tend to spend an awful lot of our time running around looking for things. We look for the greatest wines, within our budgets of course, and we look for the perfect wine for ribs, greek salad, or whatever it is we like to eat, and we seek out the greatest value wines on a regular basis. That last search can a get a little silly. Often we’re lo... Read More

  • So what’s not to like? 2010 Barolo is in the hype machine right now and as much as i would like to say that they hype machine is in overdrive, which it perennially is, this is one time where much might be warranted. that’s not to say that 2010 is a universally fabulous vintage.

  • You have to love Australia’s red wines. If for nothing else than the sheer simplicity of twisting off a baker’s dozen of screw-caps as opposed to setting out to fight with so many corks.
