  • A Celtic Prince. A French excavation site. A Greek wine jug.  Though seemingly unrelated, this trinity made headlines this past week when INRAP archaeologists working in Lavau, France, unearthed the tomb of an ancient Celtic ruler which contained a mesmerizing Greek wine jug depicting – fittingly enough – Dionysus, the Greek god of wine and Leth...

  • A nice surprise this morning - our daughter-in-law's parents dropped off a few gifts for us.  One gift was a very special bottle - the 2012 Caymus Vineyards 40th anniversary Cabernet Sauvignon in a 1 liter bottle.  It's worth about $65 at Total Wine, but some reviewers found it a little sweet.  Here's the Wine Advocate assessment for it's 96 poi...

  • Not too many years ago, I had what is still referred to in my family as the "Christmas of the Rack" -- an entire holiday season where I inexplicably received a ton of very odd wine storage units.
