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.

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
