  • DV - We did the Tauck 'Essence of South America' tour last year (about 15 days, late Feb to early March 2014) which took us to Chile, Argentina and Brazil in that order.  The tour stopped in the following cities / locations:  Santiago, Chile; Puerto Montt and Puerto Varas, Chile; crossed the Andes over to Bariloche, Argentina; then up to Buenos ...

  • EM - Ok, but the bet is only for $5.00; we'll determine if we have cut back on acquiring wines by counting the bottles in our cellar mid-Jan 2016, ok?  I'm kind of interested in how this turns out. OT - I guess from our viewpoint we definitely visit both Somona and Napa on the same trips and that includes eating food in both areas.  You are righ...

  • Due to popular demand (don't ask where that demand came from or you'll spoil my fun), we appear to need some new wine discussion topics.  This topic was only relevant to Thursday as a test case but was subsequently expanded to cover the weekend too.  What ever you bring up in this topic should either occur on a Thursday - Sunday, or it could be ...

  • Wine consumers really do judge a book by its cover, and wineries know it. This past week Forbes critic Jonathan Becher reviewed 99 Bottles of Wine: The Making of the Contemporary Wine Label by David Schuemann, whose company designs labels for wineries. “A carefully crafted label can make us think the bottle is way more expensive than it is, and ...

  • I once spent 48 hours making a sauce from scratch. It was a classic Sauce Robert that started with a tray full of bones and vegetables. The compound sauce required demi-glace, the rich reduction of beefy goodness that takes a lot of time and effort, and I was determined to use no pre-made ingredients. At the end, gallons of liquid and pounds of ... Read More

  • This past Monday science mag Cosmos published a story which explored the science behind the wine world's beloved – and sometimes besmirched term: terroir.  “In vino veritas – in wine there is truth – says the Latin proverb, but the truth behind how grapes ferment into a unique vintage is a mystery long cloaked by the term terroir,” the article b...

  • Too many good wines and too little time? Let’s resolve to drink more great wine in 2015! Here’s my wish list of wines I adore yet don’t drink often enough.   Chablis: I love the licking-an-oyster-shell-flavor and sensation of Chablis.

  • The 2013 vintage was harrowing for Burgundy. With mostly poor weather mounting worry along the Côte d’Or during the last four vintages, it’s not just the vines that are feeling stress. But after painstaking work in the vineyard, winemakers have provided superior pleasure in the glass. Read on and you will understand.  WeatherPrecipitation was tw... Read More
