  • Hey, I hear that VTs are coming back, with one scheduled for March!  Not to steal the thunder, so I won't leak what the region/grape is going to be (regulars, watch your mail boxes if you live in the US), but it's going to be good if my inbox is any indication.I'm opening up the floor to ask the question, "Who do you think will be the host?"  Ma...

  • Thanks for the responses, everyone.  This has really helped me.  I never thought of R.Mondavi as being the originator of wine tourism, but it certainly makes sense.  Am I wrong in my thought that the Mondavi winery in Oakville was the first one built with the intention of hosting, educating and entertaining visitors?  I don't know when Tasting R...

  • AoK - it's not that difficult if you think about the history. In Europe, the guys would go out and plant some vines and if a particular vine put out some pretty good grapes, they'd take cuttings, root those, and get more of that grape. When invaders or travellers showed up or when people travelled elsewhere, they'd see something that looked prom... Read More

  • If you can find a copy of the Wine Lovers Companion, a nice book small enough to fit in a handbag, it's a great place to start.  Excellent section about tasting terminology, a section on how to read wine labels--but you'll need a PhD to start decoding those German wines.  A to Z of terms, regions, grape varieties. you name it, so you don't have ...

  • That Wine 101 link is quite helpful.  Thanks V V.Joanne, it also helps to visit a few wineries and do the free / low cost tastings.  Most counter people know enough about the wine they are pouring to help you understand what's unique about each one.  Keep in mind that your sense of smell is even more important than how well your tongue can disti...

  • I have been trying to find info on wine terminology. Im lost everytime I visit the wine section and read the reviews as I dont know what they mean.  Please help. I enjoy red and whites that are not very sweet and not dry and that I can drink 3 sips at once without  having to pucker. Not as sweet as Beringers white zifandel  and not as dry as Mir... Read More

  • Hang around wine geeks for any length of time and you are sure to hear the word terroir mentioned. As you may know, terroir is a French term that has no English equivalent, and it refers to the way that the environment of the vine, including the soils and climate, works together to alter the character of the grapes grown there in such a way that...

  • No mystery I love Syrah and got turned onto it some years ago by a N. Rhone that I had at a restaurant in Sonoma.  But here it goes again, latest estimates for the auction price at HartDavisHart:1983 Côte Rôtie, Côte Brune, Cuvée Reservée, Marius Gentaz-Dervieux (12 bs) $15000-22000Now I grant you that's not exactly DRC or Latour level pricing ...
