  • I am a new wine lover. A year or two ago I was having troubles staying away from 'the sauce'.  It wasn't alcoholism, per se, but it was getting to the point where I was spending much of my money and getting very little done. So, being that I am working in a fine dining restaurant, Carnevor Steakhouse in Milwaukee, WI, I decided to begin studying... Read More

  • I would like to gather others opinions as to whether they think that a serious wine could be made from these grapes. Do you think that an expert wine maker could make a serious wine using these grapes. Or are they just to be considered table grapes.  My question is : Can a serious wine be made with table grapes?

  • Rock Stream Vineyards Dry Niagara 2009

    Snoothrank:

    Intoxicating aroma of honey baked apples and gasoline that is a beautiful expression of the NIagara grape. Unfortunately the aroma is the best aspect of this wine, which drinks more like an Italian pinot grigio with a slight bitterness on the finish. Still for a $7.99 wine, the aroma makes it all worth it. Read More

    Snoothrank:

    Yes, well I love it. I used to think you had to drink dry wine to be cool. Well as I got older and do not succumb to popular opinion I have found myself drinking and loving semi-sweet and sweet wine more and more. Why? Because it tastes good. I like to taste the grape and I like being able to swallow the wine without screwing up my face and... Read More
