  • Barolo may be Italy’s most famous red but surprisingly it hails from a very small vineyard region. Tucked into the top northwest corner, just south of the medieval town of Alba in the heart the Langhe region of Piemonte, it’s barely 8 kilometres wide. The vineyards are breathtaking. The snowcapped Alps form a distant backdrop to a series of hill... Read More

It’s ok, though, we can get through this together. Shake awake your sleepy palate with value-packed white wines from Rueda in Spain. They’re fresh and dazzling – fruity without going bonkers wit...

  • Trying to recall a conversation we had a little while ago on this subject.Whats the most widely planted (acreage) and produced (bottles) red grape in CA, U.S., and worldwide?I seem to recall a Snooth article mentioning Grenache as the most widely planted red grape worldwide, but that was some years ago. I'm assuming it's Chardonnay for white? Read More

  • Fox - the Gypsy is made by a guy named Jim Neal. He's another guy like some of the others we talked about - he buys wines or fruit and puts out a product. TJ's picked up the Gypsy, but he has similar wines and I don't think there's an exclusive. For them it was the next step up from Two Buck Chuck - better grapes/juice but something they could p...

  • Hi everybody I'm a small store owner at the edge of the rust belt, my customers rarely spend over $20 for a bottle, and I am looking to improve my selection a bit beyond what is here now.

  • Don't forget that history also applies to farming practices. You grow grapes to get juice that you can ferment into wine. You can ferment the red grapes once they're at a certain point of ripeness, meaning that they have at least enough sugar to ferment to 11-12 percent alcohol. Then you pick because if you don't and if you live in an Atlantic r... Read More

  • Lord knows they don't use oak in Burgundy. If only they could find a good source for barrels. ;-)Qak is a winemakers stylistic decision and has nothing to do with where the wine is made. Plenty of oaked white Burgs. Over-oaked Chards are common place and litter the grocery store shelves world wide. The hipsters and IPOB avis loving crowds are le... Read More
