Before sharing my tasting notes on this wine, let me just say Im relieved my wine geekiness/giddiness did not show too badly when sharing a table with Robert Brittan. Hes a wine making legend out of Napa Valley. For 16 years, Brittan was the winemaker and vineyard manager at the highly acclaimed Stags Leap Winery in Napa. Before that, he made wi... Read More

Looking more like someone's house than a winery, we hesitantly asked the smiling people standing outside if we could "fare... Read More
Savannah may not sit in wine country, but this destination has everything that makes for a wonderful winecation: history, breathtaking setting, art, and of course, great food. Toted as “The Hostess City of the South,” this title is supported by the running joke made famous by John Berendt’s Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil: “We have a say... Read More
Wanting to refresh my memory on certain French vintages in the Rhône Valley I came across (as I often do) the Robert Parker Vintage Chart. Parker includes vintages from 1970 through 2010 on his website and scores them on the usual 100 point scale. He claims that scores of 70-79 are "average" while those of 80-89 are "above average to excellent... Read More

Randy Dunn is one of the most respected winemakers in California by those "in the know".
