The idea of Drink Better arose out of the desire to ease the overwhelming feeling that can occur when shopping for wine and liquor. Our plan is to help you look past the label and to venture outside of your comfort area to try wines that you may have overlooked in the past. To drink better does not mean you have to drink expensive. Sign up for our email list and you will receive special offers and insider information about what people are drinking, and how you can drink better.

  • Dude, I went to Holdredge expecting that you would be pouring!  Plus the last time I called you had to work.  Anyway, I passed along your regards (and Mike Talty's) to Carrie. I'll have another two bottles there for you to pick up for me if you ever make it over that way. I love W. Sonoma, it's just so incestuous.Seriously, friends of ours had t... Read More

  • There's also Covenant and a bunch of others.  Many of them are, more or less, pretty good.  None of them that I have had has ever been better than pretty good.  All of them have cost much more than they should have for the source of the fruit and for the quality of the wine.  Why is that the case?  It's not that the wine has to be processed in a...

  • I even inadvertently un-koshered some wine there one time just by trying to be helpful.Thereby improving said wine by 50%.  Kosher wine, which I have to serve to my wife's sister when she shows up for some family function (and I can't handle it, I can only pay for it) represents the best example of protectionism leading to higher prices and lowe...

  • If the numbers are correct, quality wines will soon have their renaissance in Germany. This past week, research group Mintel released a report which said, according to their study, wine drinkers in Germany are prepared to spend money on quality wines. “As competition abounds on the best deals for consumers across the food and drink sector, Germa...

  • I get quite a bit of wine online in groups of 3 to 6 bottles.  I used to open one up the day of delivery frequently.  There were just too many times when I was disappointed and decided to keep the wine for "wine downs".. you know, the last bottle of the night that you don't taste anyway or for people who I know who drink, but aren't very, um, di...

  • I don't know what the science would be. I generally don't open a wine right away after it's been shipped.It may just be superstition because I really can't say I know for certain one way or another. But it always raises some additional questions.When you buy something and take it home from the store, does that count? If so, all the people who ta... Read More

  • Just let the shipment rest. I personally do so for weeks or even months (or even years if it's wine I'm laying down anyway). Minimum a few days, but longer is better. Some people here have been known to tear the bottles out of the UPS delivery person's hands, rip off the foil and savage the cork out on the way to the kitchen where they splash vo... Read More

  • I posted this as a reply to another thread about travel shock, but that thread never got bumped up to the front page, for some reason. Guess I'll have to start a new topic, as my curiosity remains unsatiated.So I've done my reading on the subject (http://www.wineloverspage.com/dibbern/shock07.phtml, et al) but I'm looking for any anecdotal evide...

  • OK, I wish OT lived next door so that I could borrow his high-dollar double throw-down cork removing gadget.  Him living next door would be much better than me paying $125 for one of those things.  However, betwwen an Ah-so, and a more-or-less standard type of corkscrew, I did get, I'm guessing, 99.5% of the cork out.  My report is that this is ...
