  • Here I am trying to think of my "Wine of The Year" as well as the runner ups.  I see a lot of forums do this, but it's usually a bunch of impossible to obtain bottles or vintage wines that cost too much for the average person to afford. I find these lists pretty useless, since the best use that anyone could get from a topic like this, is to find... Read More

But this week, we decided to challenge that premise at our office by selecting a number of off-the-beaten path white wines to pair with barbecued faire from Brooklyn’s famed Fette Sau. As soon as the food arrived, there was no other sm... Read More

  • Most of the time, I choose to drink my dessert - that is, I'll have a glass of Sauternes all alone instead of partnering it with a lemon tart or some other delicious treat to end to a meal. Sometimes, though, I really like to play with pairing dessert with wine.Opinions about how to do this are often split - many refuse to pair a sweet wine with... Read More

  • My wife and I very much enjoy red wines.  She enjoys merlots and pinot noirs and I prefer cabs and malbec.  We are wanting to get into more white wines this summer.  What is a good type of white to try for someone whose palate is accustomed to reds?  Any suggestions? Read More

  • As I mentioned when I introduced myself as part of Snooth's Mentor Program, I'm a wine educator. I teach wine at a culinary school, and I instruct classes at local shops around my area in the Triangle in North Carolina. It keeps me on my toes, for sure - no matter how many times I've taught a concept or tasted a wine, something new comes up. Mos... Read More
