  • As many of you know, I am a big fan of the wines of the village of Verduno. I was introduced to this small hamlet largely because of the wines that Fabio Alessandria has been making in modest cellars at Burlotto.

  • So, should we be excited? Well, a lot of the wine media and critics parade would have you believe so, but if you’re like me and prefer more traditionally proportioned wines, a word of caution is in order.2007 is another hot climate vintage for Piedmont, and the wines certainly show it. While many of the wines show a much greater understanding of... Read More

  • So you're standing in an unfamiliar wine shop that sells wines that you are unfamiliar with--how do you go about choosing a wine? Do you look at the labels? Do you go by varietal or region? Do you search the shelves for a brand that you've heard of? Do you ask the sales clerk for a recommendation? How do YOU decide where to start your wine adven... Read More
