  • Montalcino is a beautiful medieval hilltop village just 40 miles south of Siena, on the ancient roadway to Rome. It is dominated by a castle, called La Fortezza, which doubles as an enoteca and wine shop. La Fortezza offers most of the wines of the zone, plus older vintages, as well as honey, olive oil, jams and the like. It also offers a breath... Read More

  • Mt. Etna is located in northeastern Sicily in the province of Catania. Viticulture on the lower slopes of Mt. Etna dates back millennia. We live, however, in an age where we want to know what you have done for me lately. That’s good news for Etna’s DOC wines. Winemaking on Europe’s most active volcano is hot, both literally and figuratively. Etn... Read More

  • It always seemed odd to us that in Piemonte, the land of Barolo, the King of Wines and the Wine of Kings, we would always find a bottle of Barbera in front of us on the table. The answer was and is simple: Barbera is bountiful, versatile, delicious and moderate in price. The Piemontesi drink more reds than whites and almost 50% of the reds that ... Read More

  • Yes, their wines surprised me. The chardonnay too. I expected nice wines certainly, but the finesse and complexity in these 2012s were impressive. I look forward to the 2012 Reserve PN, and it will be fascinating to track how they age. Perhaps one could attribute the complexity to vine age (many vines were pulled during the downturn, oldest curr... Read More

  • To be honest, I don't have a favourite from Rochford because I can't say I was impressed with any of their wines. They're good drinking, BBQ quaffers.. but nothing outstanding.There are lots of other wines from the Yarra which offer much more in the same price bracket. Especially from the 2012 vintage. I guess that's one of the key differences: ... Read More

  • You seem to like the pinot noir from this winery quite well. Would be interesting to hear more about their history with that varietal, as well as PN's experience as a whole in Oz! Don't hear so much about it, across such a large continent, except maybe down in Tasmania. NZ steals the show, as far as the world's knowledge of antipodean PN... Read More

  • Rochford Winery hosts the biggest annual concert event in the Yarra Valley, A Day On The Green. Headline acts this year include Mariah Carey, Jimmy Barnes & The Living End, Paul Simon & Sting.It's one of the first big wineries that you'll pas by as you drive into the valley, and it's big enough to offer segway tours or a dawn balloon ride. Rochf...

  • An Australian leaf from LVMH’s portfolio, the little brother of Moet & Chandon, Ruinart, Veuve Clicquot and the beautiful Krug. It’s almost like the outfit that the rest of the family kinda ignore. Not to be confused with Domaine Chandon in the Napa Valley, but they have the same parents anyway. Domaine Chandon does benefit from French winemaker... Read More

One of the dwindling number of original family-owned wineries in VIC.US distributor is The Wine Angel. *I have no financial interests in the... Read More

  • With the Super Bowl on so many minds, and it’s accompanying smorgasbord of themed dishes I thought it would be a good time to revisit a recipe proposed for Super Bowl XLIV. That’s 2010 for those of us to lazy to google it. It was a recipe for Jambalaya created by my friend, and New Orleans native and professional Chef Ludovic Gerrets.I had the g... Read More
