  • I was wondering what sort of new topic I could start that would pair nicely with my previous posting 'Weekday Wines'; well here it is - Weekend Wines.  Sometimes I just have to stop and take a minute to pat myself on the back for my quick wit but alas, this isn't one of those times.  Anyway, why not talk about wines we enjoy on weekends?  These ...

  • Maybe.The reason is that there's a heirarchy in Italy. Langhe is a DOC, or Denominazione di Origine Controllata. That means the grape varieties and winemaking are controlled.But Barolo and Barbaresco are DOCG, or Denominazione di Origine Controllata e Garantita, which is the highest classification in Italy. It means that not only are things cont... Read More

  • Hi everyone.  My wife Sandra and I have been into wine for the past few years and that's led to a few trips to Napa Valley and related areas in 2012 and 2013.  We enjoy all wines but reds are our favorites.  We hosted our first wine tasting party last night and it was a fun event - sixteen wine lovers trying different wines in a blind tasting.  ...

  • Absolutely agree Dave, I've been buying some of the newer releases but don't have anything old.

  • In getting together with some LA and OC wine folks yesterday, I brought along this 1961 Oddero Barolo to the party that also featured a '66 Lafite, and a '66 Haut Brion, among others. I had sourced this Barolo just last week as something to throw at the pair of old 1st growth wolves, and spice things up. Sitting here this morning, I can easily c... Read More

  • OT, as soon as you said Shiloh Road and referenced Home Depot, I immediately knew it as the one right at the end of Conde, the street that Jemrose ships from/stores at and the wine storage place are at.  Too funny.  I was just up there about a month ago during a swing thru Sonoma to pick up wine here and there--Maurtison, that Jemrose, Patz and ...

  • From where I sit one would imagine that I have some insight into the wine market. Enough at least to foresee what might happen over the extreme short term, the next 12 months or so. Of course it is just as likely that I have no particular insight, a view too narrow to see what is happening all around us.Of course witnessing, and recalling, what ... Read More
