  • Sorry but I didn't get any shots of the Bedrock wines.This Ramey was tasty.

Masculine wines are commonly associated with structure and power, while feminine wines can be perceived as delicate and thin. Speaking about a trip to the Bandol region in the Financial Times, wine writer Jancis R... Read More
