Now a respected wine maker, Margerum makes Syrah, Sauvignon Blanc and other small–production lots at his winery in the Santa Ynez Valley. Margerum will develop the Wine Cask wine program with one eye on the past history and another to the future. “So much has changed in the wine business just in the last twenty years, it defies belief,” states Margerum. If you had told the handful of local wineries in Santa Barbara in the early ‘80’s that in less than 20 years there would be nearly 200 wineries in the County, Pinot Noir would be the top grape in the area and CostCo would be the leading retailer no one would have believed you. Add to that the proliferation of tasting clubs and on–line purchasing and it’s easy to see the retail landscape has—and continues to—rapidly evolve.” – Description from dvoristanac

There were 3 categories: DOC Regular (Normale), DOC Riserva, and DOC Riserva Speciale. Two years of aging in cask and 13% alcohol was required by all thre... Read More

  • Emark - nice wines. Monbazillac isn't a region to be sneezed at. It's not as famous as Sauternes, but Sauternes is by no means the best sweet wine from France. Actually, I suppose in a sense it is because of all the money that's been invested over the last forty years, but France has a lot of places that make good sweet wine that never got that ...

  • Flash sales are one way to buy stuff cheaply, if you know what you're looking at and not getting sucked in to buy stuff of marginal cheapness and possibly styles you won't like.Buying library wines is also a way to buy lower than market, in a sense, though we're usually talking about special bottles here, more than daily drinkers.

  • It may seem foolish but if I don’t have a glass of wine, or two, with my dinner then I can never enjoy whatever it is I’m eating. It can be the most amazing, top class gourmet meal but without a glass of wine it may as well be cardboard. And if I happen to be eating cardboard, so long as I have a glass of wine, I may just enjoy whatever it is th... Read More
