  • 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. Opening a bottle of sparkling wine can be a a dangerous proposition. There's a lot of pressure under that cork! But if you like living on the edge, there's always sabrage. When t... Read More

  • It’s urban legend that top wine pros can blindly identify a wide array of wines. Blindly naming a wine’s provenance, vintage, and vineyard is the most humbling exercise in the wine world. But there are some things you can do to get closer to the correct answer. This is a rich, endless topic. For right now, we’ll focus on the identification of un... Read More

  • Maybe he's in the re-corking biz? I guess the 2001 I drank last night was over the hill. Funny because I thought it was pretty young. And it's not necessarily the "finest quality" since I can't afford that stuff!But to Manny's question  about aging Champagne - as mentioned, a lot of it depends. The idea of a vintage Champagne is kind of new anyw... Read More

  • RF - I don't remember seeing that commercial back in the day (late 1960's or early 1970's?) but I do remember they had issues with oil control at the edges of the rotor.  It took a while to solve that problem.  Anyway, it's a cute commercial.Last night we were still celebrating Sandra's one year until retirement by first seeing the National Acro...

  • Can you imagine being able to enjoy a glass of wine from any bottle in your cellar, without pulling the cork, or starting that bottle on a path to oxidation and deterioration?Over the years, we wine lovers have all been inundated with pitch after pitch from companies trying to sell us wine preservation systems.  Some use pumps, some use gas and ...

  • Somewhere i read that according to the quality of wine, the winemakers choose what kind of cork they are going to use ( when they decided to use corks instead of screwcaps or glass stoppers). The long corks, made of only one piece, we're reserved for the better wines, while the short, composite corks are used in the cheap ones. Is this truth??? Read More

  • People always say the important is what is inside, but sometimes the package is very important, too. I really love the elegant and simple shape of the burgundy bottle, the rustic feeling of the Chianti fiasco, and the convenience of a piccolo of champagne.  Read More

  • Just a quick posting on a tasting we did last week.  We've been celebrating our tenth anniversary, and I stockpiled 2001s.  Good thing it was a strong vintage in so many places.  Of course, the 2001 Gran Reservas from Rioja are, in some cases, just hitting the market and are terrific values. We celebrated with a bottle we bought in the first cou... Read More
