  • Had the pleasure to taste with GregT in San Diego yesterday evening. I had the idea to pair up Greg and a friend from the Netherlands who was in San Diego for a convention, due to their interest in Tokaj, and it seemed to work well, everyone having a good time.Lessons Learned: Harslevelu is good stuff, and probably my new favorite white wine gra...

  • I once, a few years back, almost pulled the trigger on a real estate purchase in the hills back behind the Big Sur coastline. Was reminiscing on that today, and wondered why I never hear about wine from that area. Is it because I'm so far away and out of touch and there actually are barrels and barrels of wine being made there, or because the cu... 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...

  • OK, quiz time. Thought I'd start a challenge where we can throw quotes out at the group, which has to then guess attribution. Who said it, and if possible when, why, etc.?Hints are allowed, even preferred. Person who gets the attribution right then gets to offer up their query.This would've been a lot more fun 20 yrs ago before the web. So yeah,... Read More

  • Thought this was an interesting mailer I'd share with you all. Already forwarded the e-mail to Fox as he is one of the few champions of Dolcetto that I know. This would also fit in well with the "weekday wines" thread. Fox and I agreeing it's a good week day pasta night wine, or even a 1st wine in a flight of Northern Italian Reds. To all Best W...

  • Richard & NG,I took both the advice both of you offered and bought a Riesling and a Pinot Noir. Always one to hedge my bets. I'll let my wife sample both and choose the one that appeals to her and I will have the opportunity to try a PN that should be a good test for that grape. The German wine was a 2011 Schmitt Sohne Piersporter Michelsberg Sp... Read More

  • I quite enjoy the Snooth Virtual Tastings.  It's been a while since I joined in the live event, because (I can't believe a retired person has this problem.) of schedule conflicts.  Even when I don't participate in the live event, I make time to view the archived recording.So, I was pleased to see that I had no conflict for the next VT--La Crema ...

  • Well, I am headed back up to Amador County (plymouth, ca)  for wine tasting after several years.  It is not my first choice in wine regions, but a friend wants to visit.   I see, that in my absence, that several new wineries have popped up there.... and it is not still all Zin and Viogner.  I was doing some research, and it appears there are mor...
