The simple goal at The Wine Consultant is to forage, critique, procure, and then share our discoveries reflecting the diversity of wine produced from distinctive places throughout the world. Of course, our central location in California gives us countless opportunities to source the west coast for new wines. Every year, we travel at least twice for extended trips to explore the local gastronomy of fine wine producing regions in the Southern Hemisphere and Europe. We admire and respect traditional, minimalistic, non-intervention winemaking and viticulture practices. At the same time, we understand and appreciate when modern techniques and approaches can produce a 'better' wine, but without compromising its expression of origin or terroir. As the name suggests, The Wine Consultant offers a range of consulting services including business startups, marketing strategies, menu planning, cellar design, inventory management, software design, and insurance appraisal. Of course, the brick and mortar store at Read more »

  • Dear All, I'm new to Snooth so I wanted to start by making a contribution to the community. I've lived in Languedoc since 2002 and work in wine as a marketing/PR consultant. When I travel in wine country I often seek  personal recommendations via the internet, so I'm always happy to help wine enthusiasts who are planning a trip to MY region, by ... Read More

  • Last night got a little serious. Started out simply enough with just me and a regional development consultant at a local bistro, catching up while sharing a range of starters along with a house chard and a bottle of Produttori del Barbaresco Langhe nebbiolo--always a reasoned and satisfying choice when there's no intention of getting too serious...

  • "I still prefer soft tannins however, and those tend to improve with age, right?"Actually, not. As Greg also alluded to above, big, fruit-forward (even blowsy) over-ripe wines, often picked later in the year and with correspondingly higher alcohol, tend not to age as well. 1997 was a famous vintage that everyone wanted to love in California (lik...

  • Most, if not all Monsanto Chianti Riserva is 90++% Sangiovese. Full-throttle and cellars properly if bought by a vendor or importer or at Monsanto.I was fortunate to have 5 vintages in 4 years as a Wine Consultant.-- the 1975 "Il Poggio" is still being poured at Castello Monsanto for friends and fans.

  • In conversations about better Brunello producers, it's usually not long before the name Il Palazzone comes around. This is a winery that produces consistently excellent Brunello Di Montalcino, and a wonderful non-vintage Rosso of great value. So what is behind the consistency and quality for which  Il Palazzone has come to be known? To answer th... Read More

  • Had some neighbors over Friday for an Italian themed potluck. Good thing I have neighbors who can cook and who appreciate my wine...makes for a nice group effort.Not much time to go over everything in detail, but I continue to enjoy 2011 Barbera d'Alba, and also the 2011 Tommasi Soave that I picked up last minute was a real surprise. I'll be buy... Read More

  • In the continuing effort to thin out the cellar, I found this, today:A lot of reflected light (and a pretty goofy label design) makes this hard to read in my pic, but it is a 1990 Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon from Adelaida Vineyards. In Mrs. EMark's previous life as a Food & Beverage Consultant she did some things for Adelaida in the late 1990s.  ...

  • Dave, that Sangiovese/Cab/Merlot blend sounds pretty good.  I've have only recently learned much about Super Tuscans and now enjoy trying them.A couple days ago you asked about prices, and I think the short answer to your question is, "Yes."  I'm sure that GregT has a better understanding of this but from my observation a winery will set a retai...

  • What NG said - price can be very deceiving.In the $20 range there are many many many good wines. For business purposes, the "fine wine" category is considered wine over $15. For many people that's inexpensive wine but people forget about the gallons of jugs sold all over because nobody talks about them - the people who drink that stuff don't han... Read More

  • Hi, I am an accidental wine enthusiast. As part of a major remodeling project including our family room I revived my interest and enjoyment of wine. Our family room was redone using dark hickory planking and the room has a short wall next to our fireplace. This wall has always presented a challenge to make use of the space. I researched and sear... Read More
