What are the secrets of a winemaker with over one hundred 90+ point wines across decades, appellations, and grapes? Perhaps it’s like any top chef: Add a pinch of this, a dash of that, and voila – you’ve got an award winning product. But decorated Murrieta’s Well winemaker Robbie Meyer doesn’t believe in recipes.

I deliberately did not mention the Falcon Crest connection, although I am willing to wager that I am the only Snoother who has been in Abby Dalton's Rolls Royce. (Not a prop, ... Read More

"When the moon hits your eye/like a big pizza pie/that's amore."As we ate our breakfast on Sunday morning at the Imperial Hotel in Amador City, the soundtrack subtly changed. Last night at dinner and halfway through breakfast, the soundtrack was from the same era, but Sam Cooke sent us, and Ray Charles warned us about women. This morning, with... Read More
