  • There were three of us, or actually 2 1/2 since my wife didn't drink much and doesn't like whites. The burgers were going to be 50/50 bacon/beef, which opened a world of possibilities so we decided to go all-American. Halcón Vineyards Prado to start, a 50.50 Marsanne/Rousanne blend that would have gone really well with the mushroo... Read More

  • Being a member with Snooth for 4 to 5 years, I appreciate and care for this Website and all the members for both past and present information with all that has to do with wine and beyond. When I was a new member, I jumped on my Chariot and applauded only the heavy grape varieties, the Cabs, Shiraz, Old vine Zins, etc.I was one that couldn't see ... Read More

  • 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.
