  • Sounds like we do need a trip to Greece after all.  Maybe in 2019?  I previously wondered why their wine storage vessels (amphoras) are shaped the way they are.  They look unstable and likely to break from rolling around in the hold of a ship.  However, their shape makes more sense when you read this Wiki post:"An amphora (Greek: Αμφορας, Englis...

  • Galileo once said “Wine is water, held together by sunlight.” With all the record rainfall that NY has been getting this year, it’s been impossible not to think about how water affects wine quality.  Too much or too little can significantly impact the way a harvest will develop.  Since the largest chemical component of wine is also water, Galile...

  • Or in this case, ancient Greek wine. Interesting to consider the origins of the wine culture we currently enjoy. Not that it's exactly a straight line from back then to our here and now, but theirs are some of the earliest recountings available to us of winemaking and enjoyment.Was re-reading Hesiod's 'Works and Days' and found myself paying gre...

  • Apples, gourds, and snifters of port are right around the corner. Let’s cherish the last bits of summer before they’re all gone. Here are four choice picks, all under fifteen dollars, from some of the web’s top palates. Each one pairs well with sand and suntans.

  • The Sunset magazine that arrived today had a (very) short article on some relatively modestly-priced domestic wines.  In that article was a breakdown of one producer's cost for a bottle Pinot Noir.  The producer is Alit.  I am unfamiliar with this winery, but it looks like they are in Oregon.20.6% -- Price of the fruit. 7.8% -- Labor--winery sta...

  • We've had a relationship with wine for several millennia and counting. This relationship has been documented in a number of ways, but so much has been lost to the ravages of time. Gaps in history leave wine culture open to interpretation, but with the dawn of modern media things have changed. Whether we like it or not, modern media will help us ... Read More
