This would give LuchaVino a chance to attend... Read More

Here a video of my visit to a tasting of the wines of Albert Mann, with tasters from all around the world, professionals and sommeliers including celebrated cheese maker Bernard Antony. I really liked the Rieslings at Albert Mann most. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AMlKv0vdFys Read More
I'm new to the site and am looking for advice on wine pairings. I've had some excellent wines, but have not chosen them myself so I am eager to learn more. Can someone please suggest a couple of good wines I can serve at a dinner party this week. I'm serving grilled Moroccan Lamb Chops. Thanks :) Read More
