I suppose you want to know about me. Well, I'm Debra, the proud owner of the site. I started off in the restaurant business in Chicago, and have been in the wine business for years. I've had the good fortune of traveling to many of the worlds wine areas, and am proud to bring you great wines from all over the world. I carry well known labels as well as wines that you will not find in stores. This means some wines are exclusive and will not be sold in large quantities. Some of our wines are made by producers that I have personal ties with, and they have agreed to private label wines and sell them only in the US. I will take good care of you and your order. We do not have a conveyor belt operation where you will be a 1-time order and lost in the shuffle. We may call you when we run low on your wine- so that you can re-order when we have the wine in stock! Though we continually monitor inventory to ensure product availability, there are times when products may be out of stock. If that occurs, we will email Read more »

  • Wine myths are often unspoken but incredibly pervasive. Their looming presence may prevent wine novices from feeling confident about how they drink. Most would agree that wine experiences are best enjoyed with friends, but myths can hinder otherwise joyous wine drinking occasions. “Sparkling wine MUST be enjoyed in a flute glass, or else!” “Wine...

  • Clearly those were below retail.  Someone must have overbought or had a change of heart or something.  Nice work there, Duncan.  And I am always happy to see you posting, so thanks for sharing that.On our way to last night's vineyard dinner in Rockpile, we stopped at a winery to use their picnic grounds, felt obliged to taste, and, having enjoye...

  • Post here about wines that used to satisfy, but for whatever reason (corporate buyout, founder dying, price gouging or other repositionings resulting from lusting lunges towards greater monetary reward, etc., etc. ad nauseum) have either disappeared or now become a disappointment. The more story, the better.I'll get the ball rolling with some si... Read More

  • So the Ruche went over pretty well. Served to some friends my wife and I had over. Loved the nose, and though I was disappointed at first it opened with some air, and became a nice and enjoyable.Throws a refreshing fragrance of fresh crannberry. Light to medium bodied on the palate, with a pleasant attack, showing more cranberry, and dark plum f... Read More

  • Planning to do some exploring into Italy's other wine varietals, those without the fanfare or popularity of Sangiovese, Nebbiolo, Barbera, and Dolcetto, etc.First up is a Ruche with a few years bottle age by Montalbera, apparently a lighter wine that was traditionally brought out for special occassions...figure this should make for a nice aperti...

  • Among the sparklers, Jacquesson's GVS beat out the Schramsberg BdN, though I like both wines. Good comparison since the Jacquesson was 55% PN and 45% chard. Not a version that they produce any more, to my knowledge. I really like that house and used to drink cases and cases of it last decade, including that vintage. Zero chaptalization, extended...

  • I got in the mix because I am a civil servant with 20+ years of seniority, so I have to use my vacation days before they over-accumulate.  I just took the day off, did some stuff around the house, and then went to Napa.  I couldn't keep going up to Forestville (I don't recall being invited, but maybe I was) in any case, but Napa is like a 45 min...

  • Grange is very good, without a doubt, and sometimes even worth the money. But it's hardly the be all and end all of syrah.I have to agree with this. No way am I disparaging it, but when we've put it into blind tastings, it's frequently failed to live up to it's billing. In that way it's like Opus One in a sense - very good wine, even better repu... Read More

  • Had the good fortune to attend a Masters of Wine, Syrah Panel Tasting on Monday. I believe it was the last spot available for the seated tasting, consisting of 23 Syrah's from the main Syrah producing regions of the world. The tasting was held at the upstairs restaurant of the Wine House (famous retail shop and education facility) off of Cotner ... Read More

  • I'm starting this thread in order to drop a few notes and pics of the wine related portions of our Alsace trip. We're here with two other couples and although we have consumed a fair amount only a small portion of this trip is centered on wine. The first problem we encountered was the lack of rental cars due to the railway workers strike. We hir... Read More
