Port wine. Is it what your granny might drink? Well one of the many charms of Port is that the last bottle I tasted was harvested, vinified and put in a barrel way before my granny (may she rest in peace) was even born. Actually, I’m not sure my great-...Read more »

I've recently discovered my interest in wine since turning 21, and I've been learning some of the lingo through this great site. I'm about to graduate from college in May, and I hope to leave my days of Franzia and refrigerated Yellow Tail out of a solo cup behind.I have a lot to learn, but I just wanted some input from you on how to become a w...

I am considering buying a wine from the year of my son's birth (2007) and aging it to open with him when his first child is born, so say 25-30 years if all goes according to plan. (A gamble with any child, I know).I only have learned a modest amount about wine appreciation, enough to know I'd make a mistake selecting just any bottle and expectin... Read More
It’s rare to taste a wine that is over a century old. Rarer still is it to taste one that has been kept in the same place for 150 years and that comes from pre-phylloxera vines. When Scion was first mentioned, it seemed almost unreal. A wine from the year that the Bordeaux wine Châteaus were first classified, a piece of history. Phylloxera notor... Read More
Hi there, My 30th is coming up in March. One of the things I've wanted to do since I was about 6 is to drink a red wine from the year I was born (81). I don't have the type of money to blow 1000's of dollars on a wine or buy a case to ensure the wine is about to peak (probably a bit late to do that anyway). Does anyone have any... Read More
Anyone know any wineries in Connecticut that are 'can't miss' stops?There's a list here, but I was wondering if there was anything unique and worth having a look at- particularly around Mystic & Foxwoods and/or near Lake Compounce. (Boulderdash!) Tanks Read More
Hello,I am new to the world of wine. The Snooth Website has been a great source of information and it looks like the forum is a good place to learn some more. I have been trying out different varietals to get a better idea of what I like (and dont like). So far am finding that I prefer medium to full bodied red wines. What kind of suggestions ... Read More
Any help would be appreciated here.I have a buddy that's really into cigars and I've been partaking from time to time. It's been fun but I've never tried to put a wine in front of someone smoking a cigar. Now that everyone knows I'm the "Wine Guy" I've been asked to supply next weeks smoking event with some wines. YIKES.I don't know where to s... Read More
I'm planning a trip to upstate NY and wanted to incorporate a visit to a winery. Any place with some history, a tour, and some tasting of course! Most likely I would stay in or around the Hudson River Valley area, but have yet to make anything definite. Anyone have any suggestions or previous experience with places in NY??Thanks!Erin Read More

It's been a while since I've posted a blog on Snooth. It also has been a while since I've done anything with the pages I curate. If you don't know I curate the Sonoma County and Sonoma Valley webpages. One way to address both of these pages and get a blog in is to talk about two of the smaller, lesser known sub-appellations in the region. I ... Read More
