  • D--They are impressive, those Chianina.  The Chiangus are interesting, because both animals have dark skin, but the Chianina have white coats, but the Angus have black coats, and because they are clearly a cross.  If you notice (and how could you not?), the Chianina has a long body, high shoulders, but not very long legs, just really meaty.  So ...

  • I'll be in Germany next week, and once I arrive I plan to drag my jet-lagged self to Alsace, France to tour a few wineries there (a couple hours from Frankfurt). BUT- I'm not really into white wines as much as reds, though I don't mind Gewurtzraminer and Dry Riesling.But I am thinking of taking a day off toward the end of the week. I can get pre... Read More

  • Corsica may fall under French jurisdiction, but its spirit is clearly distinct from that on “the continent”, as they say. Read the street signs in French or in Corsican; if you know some Italian, you’ll grasp the latter easily. After all, Corsica was Italian for a solid seven hundred years before the island raised the French tricolore flag in 17... Read More

  • We’ve all been there. You’re shown to your table. You’re feeling good. Then the wine waiter (or sommelier) appears with the wine list. The table goes quiet as everybody prays that the inevitable game of pass the parcel doesn’t end with the leather bound tome in their lap. As the wine list circulates, waves of pressure and an air of intimidation ... Read More

  • I think OT had a thread in Berserkers all about pictures of vines and vineyards...tried to find one on here but came up short. There was some talk of Limerick Lane (has a nice ring to it) on here recently, I believe Mark has some of the wines. Just now I noticed a nice picture of some Limerick Lane Vineyard rows posted to Facebook by Adam of Sid... Read More

  • So Fox, you really didn't know about cremant de Bourgogne? How about cremant d'Alsace or vin mousseux from wherever?  Lots of sparkling bubbling up all over France. Champagne is only a drop in the bucket compared to overall production around the country. But they've been superb at branding, more branding and grabbing then directing eyeballs and ... Read More

  • Don’t call it Champagne. You’ll get us in trouble.But it’s sometimes difficult to hold your tongue. Mainly because Cremant de Bourgogne is made in the very same way as those much more expensive wines produced by our neighbors to the north. A well-made Cremant is a joy. A wine you can pull out for any occasion at a fraction of the price of the mi... Read More

  • In a country known for its white wines, one New Zealand college is trying to grow against the grain. A team of professors and students from Nelson Marlborough Institute of Technology (NMIT) are in the first  round of harvesting several new cold-weather reds, an anomaly in the land of sauvignon blanc. “The new plantings over the past three years ...
