The People Behind the Pour House Perhaps you’ve always wanted your own personal sommelier to help you choose wines to go with home-cooked meals.

  • Sometimes I have to think a minute about what sort of wine would be appropriate with an activity, rather than a certain meal.  I mean, you might pour a glass of wine without any thought given to a food stuff that might be consumed while you enjoy the wine. For instance, I could come home and find one of our cats sleeping on the couch in the fami...

  • Quite the polarizing wine there Al. It's one of those you like it or you hate it wines. If you enjoy over the top wines with sweetness and loads if oak this is a winner, if you like traditional Napa Cab you pour it out. I was at the Ceritas Open House last weekend talking with a few wine geek friends and the subject of the Caymus 40th breached. ...

  • Thought this was an interesting mailer I'd share with you all. Already forwarded the e-mail to Fox as he is one of the few champions of Dolcetto that I know.
