OK, this is a topic that hasn't come up recently but has many times in the past. How to store wine in the house? Whether to refrigerate? How to choose passive or refrigerated wine cellars? What kind of wine fridges are best? Etc., etc.I was doing some real estate shopping in the Ventura/Santa Barbara counties area and ran across a higher-end h... Read More
The world of wine can generally be split into two halves, the familiar and the new, two pieces of a whole that keeps us excited and satisfied. Interestingly there is some similarity between the two. With the familiar we discover new vintages and producers with some regularity, while the new is all based on those moments of discovery. Of course a... Read More
Pinot has been a much celebrated topic here on Snooth over the years I've participated, and it's obviously one of the more celebrated grapes in the wine world. It'll no doubt be a story line I plan on focusing on in years to come so I thought I'd start a thread, logging experiences. Sorry in advance, Greg T.Having said that, I've been mostly dis...

Wanting to refresh my memory on certain French vintages in the Rhône Valley I came across (as I often do) the Robert Parker Vintage Chart. Parker includes vintages from 1970 through 2010 on his website and scores them on the usual 100 point scale. He claims that scores of 70-79 are "average" while those of 80-89 are "above average to excellent... Read More
Having made my plans to visit the European Wine Bloggers Conference in Franciacorta, Italy this October, I'm making a point to visit as many of my compatriots' wine blogs as I can before getting to meet them, many for the first time. Of course, it being the European Wine Bloggers conference, many of the sites I've visited are in languages other ... Read More
I have just recently encountered the expression "black glass tasting." It sounds like in a black glass tasting, the participants are using black glasses so that they cannot discern the color of the wine. I went to Wikipedia and saw this sentence regarding the rationale behind black glass tasting, "A taster's judgment can be prejudiced by knowi... Read More
The cork vs. screwcap as a wine bottle closure argument/discussion has been done more than once on these pages. My point here is to encourage some discussion around the merits (or lack-there-of) of arguments in favor of cork as an ethical choice, similar to choosing organic wines, etc.The journalof the Ecological Society Of America published th...

So I'm just wondering......what's everyone's take on the old screw caps vs cork debate....? How would you best describe the role of each, and overcome perceptual barriers....? Read More
Being a fan of Pinot Noir from Burgundy, Cabernet and Merlot from the left and right banks of Bordeaux and Rhone varietals from, you guessed it, the Rhone valley, I've had trouble finding wines that I really like from California. Sure there have been a number of very good, and occasionally great, bottles, but my experience has been about a 20% a... Read More
