  • April in Paris is wonderful, but for someone who loves Champagne, April in Reims is even better. Because April is when this city, home to a splendid cathedral and many of the most prestigious Champagne Houses such as Krug, Veuve-Clicquot, Roederer and Pommery, is abuzz with Le Printemps des Champagnes. Now in its tenth year, this five-day event ... Read More

  • "...what's with all the spam looking stuff. Good Lord, are there no moderators?"LOL  ;-( Yes, in response to your question about whether cheaper 'blend' wine is made from grapes sourced from lesser vineyards, and often lesser grape varieties. Of course the health of the fruit (no blemishes, pest punctures, etc., etc.) is important, but that's pr... Read More

  • Hey Snoothland, more questions.Was going to branch out  a little from my Lindeman Cab-Merlot playpen but got confused real quick.  At my Krogers it seems like most of the other blended wines don't really tell you what it is beyond descriptions meant to wet your whistle.  For instance, a label may say "Custom Red Blend",  "Bold Red Blend", and si...

  • Chile is one of the oldest and most productive wine regions in the New World, thanks to the missionaries who introduced viticulture there in the 16th century. But although Chile’s wines have stormed the global market, they haven’t always enjoyed a reputation for quality or complexity.Today that story’s shifting, thanks to a loosely affiliated gr...

  • Gosh.  $22 is a bargain for Priorat.  Good job.So look for Montsant. It surrounds Priorat like a donut and part of it has exactly the same soil types but it was kept out of the DO when the lines were drawn. Some good values for the same grapes and some of the same producers.Had a few wines from Moldova the other day but no pics. And Uruguay. Ton... Read More

  • Whole ____load of Italian whites tonight. Mostly Sicilian, Calabrian and Campanian, with some Alto Adige riesling thrown in as a curve ball. Many labels I didn't recognize. Sicilian grigio/viognier cheap blend was surprisingly good, with squid/clam/shrimp in garlic and white wine, and swordfish with tomato and capers dishes. Calabrian SB blend n... Read More

  • Just opened a new bottle and noticed maybe Lindeman's does have a cork after all.  A while back I tried some other blend wine and maybe that was where I noticed the fake cork, or maybe Lindeman's experimented with the fake cork at one time,  not sure.  In any event, will have to start looking for a blend with a cork cuz it doesn't look like Lind...

  • Retailers report, and empirical evidence demonstrates, that Valentine's Day can be one of the busiest holidays for the wine and spirits business. Wine menu planning is a fun exercise but sometimes the rigors of workaday reality get in the way of our good time. And when it comes to wine, price doesn’t need to indicate how much you care. Wine is o... Read More

  • Went out on a little wine buying trip while my wife went shopping for other things.  Came back a little disappointed due to the fact that new (My old Dennis retired.) manager is revamping his store under his new guidelines.  They had offered me the job previously, but to drive 90 miles daily their offer was low.  That and the fact that were bowi...
