  • Now that I've read the short article, I found this comment to the article very interesting:Did the author do even basic research into anything that has to do with health? This article is so full of inaccurate information it's going to hurt people. Please do everyone a favor and consult a nutritionist before creating fantasy like this.Here's what... Read More

    Forum post in the topic Does Wine Make You Over-Weight?


  • Okay, it was dinner out with the folks at Oakland's Pizzaiolo, right down the street from my house.  For the occasion of my 51st, we had 2009 Castello di Verduno Barbaresco and 2008 Grifalco Aglianico del Vulture. Both imported by Oliver McCrum, who lives and works about the same distance from the restaurant as I do.  (Okay, I'm a tad closer.)  ... Read More

Nice guy, humble, passionate, hard worki... Read More

  • It's not often that I have a plan. Well, a detailed plan at least.. Some sort of a plan not being a requirement for those in this business. But a detailed plan, and over-arching theme for a visit to wine country can certainly come in handy.  This month’s, or rather last month’s theme was, surprisingly enough: Zinfandel. I say surprisingly becaus... Read More

  • Not Adam Lee.  Not Hudson or any of the ones OT mentioned.  It's either the sub-label of one of Coach K's faves (I just had breakfast with one of his former players, a national champ team) or a two-name Pinot specialist.  Dang, this is fun!A little hint: My friend who is in wine PR is arranging this.  The wine maker is male but the PR person is ...

  • Hi!  Who remembers Sutter Home White Zinfandel?  Well, I guess you can still buy it, but back in the 80's it was huge on the wine scene, (well, to those with a limited budget and an even more limited palate) and that's what got me started.  I've come a long way, but still have so much to learn.  I progressed through the really sweet whites to Ch...
