  • 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.

  • Rioja remains one of the very last bastions of value when it comes to traditionally styled wines. However, it offers consumers considerably more than that: it affords consumers the chance to purchase aged wines that are ready to drink at prices that make them undeniable bargains. But today that is not what I want to talk about. I’m still going t... Read More

  • Getting back your roots is a matter of blending, according to a story this past by The Australian's Max Allen.  “In our modern world we've become obsessed with single varietal wines, where each type of grape is kept separate from the others in the vineyard and the winery – planted on its own, picked on its own, fermented on its own, bottle on it...

  • The next time you visit Barcelona, Spain, get yourself into the mountainous vineyard regions of Priorat and Montsant, just a short drive from this beautiful Mediterranean city. “Which region is which?” This may sound crazy but think of the regions as a fried egg! The yolk is Priorat, the surrounding egg white is Montsant. Not very technical I ag... Read More

  • Hi all,Just want to introduce myself. I have recently started taking an interest in wine and have come to the point where I want to start learning more about it. At this point I can identify which lines I like, and which I don’t, but I really hope to be able to take it a step further and understand what makes it so that I like certain wines and ... Read More
