We talked a lot about sparkling wine last week but there is a lot more to cover. The biggest sparkling wine day of the year, New Year's Eve, is right around the corner.

With the New Year just around the corner, pop the cork on a sparkling wine and it’s jingle bells all the way. The days when Champagne had it all its own way are long gone for our wine shelves are now groaning with bubbles from all over the world.

I'm starting this new topic based on this article "The wine cost four digits. And the taste?" regarding the... Read More
Ironic that Miller's gold-laden cans of High Life beer boast the motto, “The Champagne of beers”, isn't it? This past week news outlet CNBC promoted the power of sparkling wine, championing the refreshing wine in lieu of beer, whose bloaty bubbles, the story said, are on the decline. While beer sales still beat out receipts from wine purchases ... Read More

As I suspect you might be aware, on, I believe, the "Watcha drinking. . . ." thread I have been periodically reporting on my experiences with 1997 Cabs. (The last couple were very good.)
