Yep, you're right DM - I left out fishing! Fishing was my favorite pastime throughout my teens and I'm just now picking it up again - after 30 years! I can't believe how light the reels and rods have gotten!But back to wine and yes California, particularly in the Central Coast, gets little precipitation. Many vineyards out there remain dry-far...

Where can I buy Niagara Grape wine? I live in California. My mom and I love this, but can't find it anywhere. The last time we had it was from Widmer Winery. Thanks.
Hi everybody I'm a small store owner at the edge of the rust belt, my customers rarely spend over $20 for a bottle, and I am looking to improve my selection a bit beyond what is here now. If you have a minute to help a guy out let me know what you think are the best wines that usually sell for $20 or less. Thanks ! Read More
Tried my first Ice wine. It was a bottle of 2007 Inniskillin (Vidal) produced and bottled in Niagra on the Lake Ontario Canada.This bottle was sent to be by a friend in the Midwest. It is certainly one of the sweetest wines that I have ever tasted. "There's incredible depth of both flavor and texture in this golden icewine from Inniskillin. Ini... Read More

The Great White North is home to great ice wines, true. But that observation is lagging behind the times as Canada's wine industry is flexing is sipper sinew and producing wines of many varietals which are catching the attention of international critics. This past Friday, the Montreal Gazette featured a story by contributor Bill Zacharkiw, a wi... Read More
Made a trip to Pahrump Nevada today to play a round of golf with my friends at Mountain Falls GC. Amazing course! Rated #1 in Nevada and the #7 public course in America. Who would have thought a course that nice could be located smack dab in the middle of basically no-mans land.Because the trip is 45 minutes from Vegas, I decided to visit the wi... Read More
I received a nice bottle of Ice Wine from a friend. Although I understand it goes well with fruit and desserts how do I drink this wine?Is there a way to prepare myself with food, wine temperature or do I just open it and sip it?I have never tasted this wine and don't know what to expect other than it's sweet like Sauternes.

Yep. It's what they make in Germany (where it's not all that warm) and they have it with venison, pork, etc. No reason not to. It's absolutely a fantastic grape that does well in many many places. Good start to wine! And it comes in all kinds of styles from super dry to extremely sweet.Funny thing is, you could probably do many wines in dry and ... Read More
