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. Or maybe you’ve always been mystified by descriptions of wines such as, “an elegant layering of pie cherries, leather and a garden of herbs,” when all you’re really interested in is whether it will taste good. Possibly you’re just looking for a nice spot to enjoy a glass of wine you’ve never tried before. Whatever the reason, customers who find their way into The Pour House on Jibboom Street, Truckee’s newest wine shop, will likely be pleased with what they see — and taste. Owned and run by the husband and wife team of Dean Schaecher and Christa Finn, The Pour House evolved out of the duo’s 25 years in the food and beverage industry. A self-described “wine guy,” Schaecher has managed the food and beverage operations of many local restaurants and resorts, including Glissandi at Squaw Creek and the restaurants at the Sienna Hotel and Read more »

  • Hi, Just had some insulation put in our walls and the installer unplugged our cooler!  We didn't notice it for about a week and that was during some hefty temps outside.  It probably got to 85 in the house for a couple days.   Had a bunch of 2012 anniversary wines in there being stores a 56 degrees.   Do you think a week of higher temps will eff...

  • Was in the mood to open some wine yesterday, reaching for a red but then my wife chimed in, asking for a Riesling. As I didn't especially care to open one I offered a Hungarian white (Zsoke I believe) that was unfortunately corked, so then decided I'd better reach for the Riesling. In so doing, I had assumed it was a basic Schafer Frolich Spatle... Read More

  • EM- If you try sous vide, there is no need to buy the expensive equipment. You should have a digital thermometer with a long probe. I can control the temp to a fraction of a degree in a large pot on a precision gas burner. I once cooked venison ribs that way for 24 hours, which included leaving the house all day for work. There is also the beer ... Read More

  • EM - We've enjoyed a Keenan wine before but I don't remember which one.  I'm sure it was tasty though.  I bet it was at one of our wine parties from the last few years.  MJ - Ok, if I see that DAOU in a wine store I will give it a try.  Last night we went over to Rick & Debbie's (our neighbors) house for another lovely wine dinner.  We do this e...

  • Hi everybody I'm a small store owner at the edge of the rust belt, my customers rarely spend over $20 for a bottle, and I am looking to improve my selection a bit beyond what is here now. If you have a minute to help a guy out let me know what you think are the best wines that usually sell for $20 or less. Thanks ! Read More

  • One of our charming new posters, cysurvivor, was fishing for recommendations here for a visit over MLK weekend.  Since we're all pretty free with our half-baked ideas and opinions, we had plenty of ideas for him, didn't we?  Since Mauritson kept showing up on the list, it looked like it would make the final cut, so I went on private messaging an...

  • Ok, new year and time for a new topic of discussion.  Just yesterday I opened this Pinot Noir from California that initially sounded promising.  First  - it was given to Sandra as a retirement gift so it was free.  Second - a Pinot Noir bottled in St. Helena CA, so it has to be decent, right? and Third - a nice looking label.  Well, this 2014 Me...

  • V V - You got that right, the cookie party host - Bob to be exact since his wife Sally isn't doing this - takes the bottles we bring and sets them aside, leaving us to drink the cheap $10-$15 wine.  He knows several of us drink decent wine, since he's attended several of our wine tasting parties these past few years and for the most part people ...

What if you began the tradition of blissfully delicious health and wellness at your feast? Most of us cook for bigger crowds than normal and experience a minor (or major... Read More
