  • 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

  • It never hurts to let things breath. This past week the Irish Examiner recounted the history of the decanter, noting its roots in antiquity and tracking its lineage from there through the Renaissance and to the present day. “Decanters were never just a matter of getting the wine to the glass in good condition,” reporter Kya de Longchamps wrote. ...

  • 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

  • Cyprus and Paphos vales, the smiling LovesMight leave with joy fair Madeira’s groves;A shore so flowery, and so sweet an air,Venus might build her dearest temple there.-From Camoens’ Lusiad, 1569, Volume I Canto V I’ve got no idea who Camoens is, but I’ve used this passage twice now, both times in introductions to Madeira auctions we’ve had at C...

  • 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

  • Assuming the original measurements were reasonably accurate to begin with.  More than (far more than) one winemaker has told me that the ABV on his bottles is a fair bit off.  First, the law allows some imprecision.  And no one really figures Tax and Trade is really going to go nuts measuring it.  Lots of wineries use the same label (except the ...

    Forum post in the topic A Wine's ABV Over Time?


  • There was a conversation on WB started on this topic...I had always assumed alcohol dissipated over time slowly. I believe Mike Officer posted a range, referencing one of the 1st growth chateau in Bordeaux, of 0.3% - 0.8% every 20 years. That number sounded reasonable to me, but I'm not aware of the facts surrounding this.I kind of figure old wi... Read More

  • Hi all,Just want to introduce myself. I have recently started taking an interest in wine and have come to the point where I want to start learning more about it. At this point I can identify which lines I like, and which I don’t, but I really hope to be able to take it a step further and understand what makes it so that I like certain wines and ... Read More

  • Due to popular demand (don't ask where that demand came from or you'll spoil my fun), we appear to need some new wine discussion topics.  This topic was only relevant to Thursday as a test case but was subsequently expanded to cover the weekend too.  What ever you bring up in this topic should either occur on a Thursday - Sunday, or it could be ...

  • Food and wine are two things you'll never run out of in Italy. For those in the wine trade, experiencing the finest of the country's corked and cooked will not require a flight to Rome but a journey to Manhattan's Pierre Hotel on February 19, on which day Gala Italia will commence for its 30th anniversary. The trade-specific exhibition organized...
