  • Red, it's context:  Pinot is supposed to deliver a certain kind of flavor, aroma, mouthfeel, and, for me, none of that is there with Meiomi.  I wouldn't bash it if I didn't try it.  (I didn't really bash it so much, either, just said it wasn't much like PN to me and wasn't very enjoyable.)  Big commercial wines:  Well, define that.  A lot of goo...

  • Yeah, I tried Meiomi recently to see what the hype was all about, and because we are in a funny situation vis a vis wine--taking delivery of wine that needs time, but having no access to our regular stash.  Since I don't want to lug wine all over town or move it from place to place until the house is done, I buy stuff at TJs, grocery stores, and...

  • Apparently this is becoming an underground hit. Not mutated Pinot Noir grapes, or Pinot Blanc, etc., but Blanc de Noirs as the French would say, or here in America, white wine from red grapes.Here's the blurbThere are producers in Anderson Valley, Northern Italy, and Germany experimenting with this, though of course this is nothing new in Champa...

  • Although not technically a wine, I am posting a few pictures from our Gin tasting class with Dave Broom at the Smithsonian Museum tonight.  It was held in the old 'castle museum' of the Smithsonian, right on the mall in Washington DC.  First we dined at China Chilanio, a fusion between Dim Sum, Peruivan and Chinese cuisines and then we walked ov...

  • Clos de la Deviniere Maison Natale de Rabelais Touraine Blanc 2010

    Snoothrank:

    I bought this bottle of wine for 5 euros from the gift shop at Chinon castle when I visited it last year. The Touraine AOC was created in 1939 [although viticulture has been going on here for hundreds of years ] for red,white and rose wines from a large area around the town of Tours. It is an ' umbrella ' AOC because it includes a number of smal... Read More

  • There’s a good chance you’ve never heard of Buckfast Tonic Wine.  That’s okay with the monks at England’s Buckfast Abbey, whose tonic wine has wowed Englanders for many years and is beginning to become a cult favorite beyond the borders of its tranquil community. Reporter Stephen Castle covered the popularity of the wine in an article about the ... Read More

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
