  • Wine has the unique ability to, at the same time, stand inside and outside of history. This past week Villa Torlonia, a museum and estate near Rome, opened to visitors the doors of its World War II-era bomb shelter. Before the underground hideout served as a refuge from possible air attacks, it served as a wine cellar for infamous dictator Benit... Read More

  • Here's another of those eye-popping offers from HDH, though it always surprises me how (relatively) reasonable bottle prices are for older Bordeaux library offerings compared to those from the last several years. And Montrose itself was never really found by the Chinese. There's no question of provenance here since these bottles are all from the... Read More

  • Hewes’ Crab. Albemarle Pippin. Harrison. Grimes. Baldwin. Esopus Spitzenberg. Winesap. Apples. More specifically, cider apples with deep roots in The Commonwealth of Virginia. Each of these cultivars played an important role in the long history of hard cider in Virginia and are still grown today by some of the state’s most notable cideries.From ...

  • I should add that GregT (too modest to say it himself) is one of the foremost authorities anywhere on Spansih wine.  His dirty secret is that he was part of a Spanish wine importer and knows first hand how hard it is.  Frankly, if you can steal a couple upper end brands from a high margin area, say, Aldo Conterno from Barolo, or Vieux Telegraphe...

  • In some cases it's not a state thing, even though it's a state thing.  What I mean is that some states might allow wine shipments, but require registration with the state authorities in order to do so.  Some wineries will do that while others don't do enough business in that state to be bothered.  I used to live in Michigan and it seemed everyon...

  • OK, sit up and listen, China's getting serious about air pollution!  They announced yesterday that somehow-somewhere-sometime they'd take their oldest (and most polluting) 5million vehicles off the road. Knowing China and the Chinese and what those vehicles mean to their owners, that would be a Chinese firedrill, or at least like herding cats, t... Read More

  • You know, if we want to do Aussie, you should look at JJBuckley.  Chuck Hayward is over there, and he's one of the acknowledged authorities on Aussie wine in the US.  Read More

  • Location is Forestville CA. in the middle of the RRV. I am about 12 minutes from Charles Shulz Sonoma County Airport (STS). You can fly direct to STS from SEA, PDX , SAN and LAX for a price or Airport Express runs busses from SFO and OAK to STS. The bus runs every hour on the 1/2 hour from OAK and SFO. The ride to STS is 2hr 15min. $34 per adult... Read More
