    Wine review by afineskyline

  • Wine in a can is a topic getting a lot of discussion lately. Purists says that the aluminum canister can’t possibly be good for wine, that metal flavors will seep into the wine and that the form factor ruins the experience. And taking a glance at some of the recent poor reviews, it seems as though that may be the case. But there’s an important d... Read More

  • In a country known for its white wines, one New Zealand college is trying to grow against the grain. A team of professors and students from Nelson Marlborough Institute of Technology (NMIT) are in the first  round of harvesting several new cold-weather reds, an anomaly in the land of sauvignon blanc. “The new plantings over the past three years ...

  • Ruffino Moscato d'Asti 2013


    Delicious! I've been trying, with little success, to find a wine or wines, that I enjoy and it's been difficult. I personally can't handle the dry burning sensation that so many of them leave when going down. This was perfect. I'll be totally honest and say I had 6 glasses. Not sure if it was the low alcohol content or what but I felt absolutely... Read More

  • As a wine consumer I love to read about others experiences with wine, but one of the most frustrating things is when you read about a great wine that you simply cannot find. With over 100,000 different wines made every year and at best only a few thousand of those making it on to your local stores' shelves, searching down a specific wine can be ... Read More

  • Thought I'd start a topic to see what "different" wines people are drinking. I've been on a hunt to find wines made from lesser known grapes or from unusual areas. Here's one of each.This is a rose made from Cinsault, not too unusual right? Well this is from the Bekaa Valley in Lebanon. Either they don't make very good wine in Lebanon or this bo... Read More
