  • It always seemed odd to us that in Piemonte, the land of Barolo, the King of Wines and the Wine of Kings, we would always find a bottle of Barbera in front of us on the table. The answer was and is simple: Barbera is bountiful, versatile, delicious and moderate in price. The Piemontesi drink more reds than whites and almost 50% of the reds that ... Read More

  • Exactly my problem DV!! That's why everything is unclear to me.Diego - in addition to what they said above, it's why most wine notes, especially those by "pros", strike me as so much BS. If you taste 60 wines and they're all Cab/Merlot blends, how many times can you describe them differently? You start going into auto-pilot ". . . blah blah blah... Read More

  • I'm putting together a blind tasting of sparkling wines, ideally with all four methods of sparkling wine production represented.Trà linh chiThere are, of course, lots of examples of traditional method sparkling wines to choose from (Champagne, Cava). Same goes for the Charmat method wines (Prosecco).Where I need suggestions is the transfer metho... Read More

  • Hey, I hear that VTs are coming back, with one scheduled for March!  Not to steal the thunder, so I won't leak what the region/grape is going to be (regulars, watch your mail boxes if you live in the US), but it's going to be good if my inbox is any indication.I'm opening up the floor to ask the question, "Who do you think will be the host?"  Ma...

  • Early in my exploration of wine, I settled on Brunello Di Montalcino as one of my favorites, and eventually as my single favorite. Since then, I’ve been asked many times, “Why this wine? What’s so special about Brunello?”  Some have wondered why I would have embraced a wine that they view as “big” and masculine, since people new to wine tend tow... Read More

  • USA Values?  I strongly believe that the optimal "Cellaring Worthy" USA Wines for the value lye in Sonoma County Pinot Noirs.. 2012 Gobble them up... Pisoni, Rosella's, Gary's. Keefer Ranch, Cargassaci.. possible @ 45-90 USD$$Vineyard Specific; Vintage Specific (SLH and SRH and Sonoma Coast or Russian River)  Pinot's are Value and Worthy in my o... Read More

  • If anything, here's something to get me to drink more German wines. Over the past couple of years, the few that I have had were newer releases, with the occasional older wine from someone else's cellar. Seems like 8 - 10+ years is a good window to start drinking many Spatlese, or lower levels. This 2007 showed a little young tonight, though it h... Read More

  • After much agony and discernment, I have chosen the official wine for my Super Bowl party this year. Over the 9 years I've hosted this event, it is probably the least exotic selection, not to mention least expensive.  Given the fact chili is the main dish (oh please, don't turn your nose. After all, we're American pigskin fans, not Bolsheviks), ... Read More

  • Texas is not known to be a particularly forward wine state.  We have only allowed wine to be shipped from out of state to private addresses in the last couple of years.  The laws are written such that if hard liquor is served, a restaurant cannot allow you to bring in your own wines.  Since wine is a huge contributor to a restaurant's profits, m...
