  • Montalcino is a beautiful medieval hilltop village just 40 miles south of Siena, on the ancient roadway to Rome. It is dominated by a castle, called La Fortezza, which doubles as an enoteca and wine shop. La Fortezza offers most of the wines of the zone, plus older vintages, as well as honey, olive oil, jams and the like. It also offers a breath... Read More

  • Newsweek  contributor Lucy Shaw quickly discovered the devil was in the details of the Chilean wine scene. Shaw visited the nation's wine country, a trip which she chronicled in an article released this past Thursday. Her story began with a scene from the “Devil's Cellar” of Casillero del Diablo. “I'm standing in a vast cellar deep underground. ... Read More

  • I am a life long wine enthusiast with a preference for Bordeaux, particularly if consumed at maturity. I do enjoy wines from other parts of the world but find I like the ones that have a claret style best. I dislike CA/domestic  fruit bombs that seem so prevalent and popular in the U S.My bias toward Bordeaux was probably set when a friend of mi... Read More

  • Imagine the shock: That priceless vintage you acquired for your cellar – the one which induced the admiring glances of some of the richest men in America – is a fake, a sham. You're left with a worthless bottle of wine. Meanwhile, somewhere in the world, a criminal is using his sterling reputation to cloak a rather nefarious empire of false supe... Read More

  • That was fun.  So  why can't US wineries of that size make such an affordable and delicious line-up of wines?  I confess I didn't open the fourth bottle--I might not open it until 2040.  But I liked every bottle in the lot that I did taste.  Sangio (and Nebbiolo, until I change that) are a good argument for drinking outside the US, since there i...

  • Made a trip to Pahrump Nevada today to play a round of golf with my friends at Mountain Falls GC. Amazing course! Rated #1 in Nevada and the #7 public course in America. Who would have thought a course that nice could be located smack dab in the middle of basically no-mans land.Because the trip is 45 minutes from Vegas, I decided to visit the wi... 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

  • It always seemed odd to us that in Piemonte, the land of Barolo, the King of Wines and the Wine of Kings, we would always find a bottle of Barbera in front of us on the table. The answer was and is simple: Barbera is bountiful, versatile, delicious and moderate in price. The Piemontesi drink more reds than whites and almost 50% of the reds that ... Read More

  • Sandra and I were fortunate yesterday to attend a quickly sold out (57 minutes after the e-mail went out to the RdV Ambassador members, it was fully booked) 'Introduction to Blind Tasting' class at our favorite Northern Virginia winery, RdV.  Getting our two slots in this class was tough, as we didn't call them until 5 or 6 hours after their e-m...
