The wine term "dry" seems to have been misconstrued from its technical scientific definition as being the opposite of sweet, meaning there is no perceptible residual sugar in the wine. More often than not, I hear wine drinkers describe a wine with aggressive tannins as being dry, without knowing that dryness actually refers to the lack of sweetn... Read More
We have all heard the sage words when it comes to food pairing: white wines with fish and red wines with meat. 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.

I tried 7 dolar Mexican cabernet-sauvignon and it was pretty tasty. Could anyone suggest some good white Mexican wines? Read More
Sadly I did Not. I had a busy weekend that involved wine, but sadly that was mostly inventorying, packing, and moving wine around the state of NY! Got about a dozen cases moved closer to home, so now I'm pretty well set for the next few months of drinking! Next bottle up looks like it might very well be 1987 Dunn Napa Valley. Funny how Dunn was ... Read More
Generally, I am able to write some pretty complete reviews of restaurant wine lists, but as Michael Madrigale reveals in his telling interview with Levi Dalton, Bar Boulud’s list doesn’t tell the whole story. Not only are there bottles in the cellar that don’t make the list, the star of the nightly offerings at Bar Boulud is the big bottle by th... Read More
Vouvray demi-sec is one of my favourite white wines so when I saw this on special offer in my local supermarket for five pounds I bought a bottle.There are four types of Vouvray;sec,demi-sec,molleux,and doux which roughly translates as dry,medium,sweet,and even sweeter.Vouvray also comes as either sparkling or still but this one is a still win...
