  • If you have any familiarity with Italian wines it’s likely that the name Bertani is well known to you. Located around Verona, the Valpolicella region is most famous for Amarone and other wines produced using variations of the passito method. Bertani stands as the best known and most traditional producer of this style of wines. I spent some time ... Read More

  • The wine buying has ceased temporarily.  A riser pipe in our bathroom started to leak and then it blew.  40 psi everywhere.  Have to tear up floor dry it all out dry it.  Pipe is repaired - luckily the local Ace store had what I needed on a Sunday afternoon.Had to shut the water off to the whole house and drain the system.  Nothing like owning a...

  • Valentino's, Italian. Published winelist isn't much but they have other bottles, too, and food's quite good. Management knows what they're doing, every time I was there in the past. Been around seemingly forever (well at least since the early '70s, longer than Michael's which by now has itself become an institution), but good oldskoolish Italian...

  • If it'd been my commission I never would've approved the plans for the Healdsburg house in the first place. If the architect tried to deliver that cellar to me I'd definitely have him redo, at his expense. Even without an earthquake, bottles are going to rain out of those cubbies after only a few are put in each or someone tries to grab any back... Read More

  • Or in this case, ancient Greek wine. Interesting to consider the origins of the wine culture we currently enjoy. Not that it's exactly a straight line from back then to our here and now, but theirs are some of the earliest recountings available to us of winemaking and enjoyment.Was re-reading Hesiod's 'Works and Days' and found myself paying gre...

  • Vino, my guess is that the 2nd of the two photos of the faux-brick paneling closet may have been staged (hell, maybe even the first one, too, after the owners moved out). Too many of the same bottles, none of which look remarkably expensive. The house is costly enough that a) you'd expect better (or at least pricier) wine if it was a photo while... Read More

  • Another 'cabinet', this time off the kitchen in a San Francisco house. I have issues with this approach, too. Reactions?  Read More

  • Antonin Rodet Red Burgundy 2015

    Snoothrank:

    I bought this bottle of wine from a local supermarket where it was on special offer at £12.Antonin Rodet is a large and well known Buirgundy house and this is one of their more basic cuvees I started it last night with my steak supper.There is plenty of a soft cherry and raspberry style fruit but it is not particularly full bodied although unobs...

  • Chateau Clos Cheval Brun Saint Emilion 1970

    Snoothrank:

    I was given this bottle of wine after a house clearance in Fulham,I thought it an unusual bottle because it is sqare sided rather than cylindrical. I do not know where in the house it was found but the level was almost into the neck and when I opened it the corkl was sodden with wine so I would surmise reasonable storage conditions.I have not be...

  • EM - I'm fine with your wine selection too, especially if you are serving salmon.We are now in Chicago, arriving yesterday afternoon after a 450 mile drive from Fairmont Minnesota.  Upon freshening up, we walked around Millennium Park.  Sandra wanted to see the 'bean' and it is pretty cool.  The best part, as you might have guessed, was dining a...
