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
Thought I'd start a topic to see what "different" wines people are drinking. I've been on a hunt to find wines made from lesser known grapes or from unusual areas. Here's one of each.This is a rose made from Cinsault, not too unusual right? Well this is from the Bekaa Valley in Lebanon. Either they don't make very good wine in Lebanon or this bo... Read More
Liver what? It’s that great wine region you’ve never heard of. Less than an hour from San Francisco. A growing wine scene based on a century and a half of history. Great climate, friendly people, tasting rooms that are not filled to capacity with people you don’t want to be rubbing shoulders with. You know, one of those regions that is truly up ... Read More
. . . and, boy, are my arms tired.I don't know when I first heard the term "Super Tuscan." I'm guessing that it was 10-12 years ago. I really did not know what it meant--me being very focussed on my California world.I did, of course, learn that a Super Tuscan was a wine that was made from grapes that were outside the Tuscany tradition--specifi...

I was going to put this in the Whatcha Drinking Tonight thread. But since there was some Syrah talk going on I thought I'd start a new thread on Cool Climate Syrah.Tonight I'm visiting a wine I haven't had in since May and wanted to see how it is progressing. It comes from high up atop the Yorkville Highlands in the Anderson Valley which is in ... Read More
For some time now, I have noticed a pattern with men who disparage rose as being a "girly" wine. Some of the most accomplished and masculine sommeliers I know would rather drink rose than pretty much anything else. Any thoughts on the male problem with drinking rose? Read More
Not by me, however, at least not yet. Wine writer Laurie Daniels (doesn't dmcker know her or do I misremember?) just published a column about Syrah here: http://www.mercurynews.com/laurie-daniel Although she generally was disappointed with the Syrahs she was asked to judge, she found much to like in the basic bottling of Qupe's Central Coast Sy...

I know..probably not the best way to be spending student loan money, but thats why i'm here, hoping this site will help me naviga... Read More
I grew up on a farm. Farmers kill themselves to survive and we support each other by buying locally. I am from CA and I have been drinking wine predominately from Napa, Sonoma and Carneros since I was 21. The point is, when I am studying for this WSET exam and being told that the best expression of every premium wine is found in some AOC in F... Read More

You can't tell by looking at it that your favorite wine is about to betray you. You didn't do anything wrong. You fought your way through rush hour crowds to procure it, you chose a food pairing that's a love letter to its aromas and curves.But when you go to have that first glass of it, annoyance strikes. The cork snaps off in the neck, or wors... Read More
