Okay, we're counting down to the end of the year. With three drinking weeks left, start nominating your wines of the year. And, if you like, nominate a wine experience of the year. I'm going to have to think about the WOTY for a while, and I'll update this OP as things occur to me, but I'm going to say it wasn't a year full of head turning win... Read More
Being aware of price points for most of the other varietals I have always wondered why the Pinot Noirs are always priced way ahead of the other varietals.It is almost impossible to purchase a Pinot Noir at the same price point/quality as a Cabernet Sauvignon for under $20Now I live in a region where both Cabernet Sauvignon (Washington State) and...

I’m part Irish, but I’m not sure how much. I’m not Catholic and my surname is decidedly English. But the family tree has branches throughout the British Isles and I sit here today with blond hair, a red beard, freckles, and the inability to get a tan.

GR 7 stands for Geneva Red, This is a hybrid grape through the Cornell Corp. Extension. The grapes were able to withstand the colder NYS frosts. I think I found a wine Rondinelli Red that may be made with GR 7. How ever I have not been able to find anyothers. I am still attempting to obtain further information.
Perhaps we could use a place to share recent purchases...Here are some '12 Burlotto Langhe Nebbiolo, which came highly recommended from a trusted friend who just got back from a month in Italy. I'm not seeing many available in the States quite yet, but was happy to find these locally. Read More

So, do you have your wine planned out yet for the Thanksgiving meal? I'm going a bit off course this year as I am smoking my turkey so I'm probably going to go heavy on Syrah rather than Pinot Noir. But that could change based on input from the guests.First off I'll likely pop a 2010 Copain Baker Ranch Syrah as it shows quite Pinot-like and I ha... Read More
I'm thinking it would be nice to get as many of you together as possible in one place for a dinner. Is that even feasible?I would prefer NYC of course, it's local for me, but more to the point I can bring a ton of wine to dinner easily.If this is support for the idea maybe we can begin to throw around some dates?

I've just read an article on this, asking the question ' Is this Spain's Greatest wine?''.There are far wiser people out there to comment and the closest i'll ever get is to read about it.As the article states no wine in the world is worth a price tag of £250+ a bottle or is it?Love to know your comments and has anyone tried it.http://catavino....
