One of my few discoveries this year has been CA Viognier of all things.As per usual, someone on WB posted the details of the latest Dirty & Rowdy release, and at first glance, it seemed like a release I wouldn't be interested in....then I got to remembering a 2014 Kamen Viognier that a friend opened recently (in India nonetheless), and how surpr...

I'm interested in taking a wine certification course or a few (WSET) in Europe (France/Spain/Italy). Has anyone done this and if so where do you recommend going? Are there any that are in vineyards where you can stay for a month while learning and be with a group of others? What could I do with the certification? Right now it is just to incr... Read More
The term Super Tuscan was born a controversy some 40 years ago. The controversy is ongoing. At this point, trying to define Super Tuscans is a waste of time. There have been arguments for decades over questions such as: What defines Super Tuscans in terms of taste? What makes a wine qualify for the Super Tuscan title? Exactly what composes a Su...

Sometimes I have to think a minute about what sort of wine would be appropriate with an activity, rather than a certain meal. I mean, you might pour a glass of wine without any thought given to a food stuff that might be consumed while you enjoy the wine.
