  • There’s nothing like a vineyard owned by generations of the same family; or is there? The Globe and Mail wine reporter Beppi Crosariol tackled the theory this past week as some of Europe’s greatest wine families met in Toronto for an upper-crust wine tasting.  “Do families make better wines? It’s a romantic notion and one that mom and pop produc... Read More

  • It's a few thousand years late, but now we can finally threaten Ben Hur's  old nemesis, Marcus Valerius Messella Corvinus, with the classic, “I know where you live,” thanks to the discovery of ancient wine vats. “Researchers have now found five dolia – earthenware vases that could hold up to 1,500 liters of wine – with markings that suggest they...

  • I’ve been through this so many times before that it becomes rote. The differences between Pinot Gris and Pinot Grigio. Well, there really aren’t any, when we are referring to the grapes. One is the name in French while the other is the name in Italian. When it comes to the wines though, there remains some distinction, though that is disappearing... Read More

  • So you want to celebrate Earth Day do you? And what better way than with an organic/natural/biodynamic wine, am I right?

  • I’ve already written up the Grenache based wines I tasted during my time in Santa Barbara, they can be found here: Grenache - The Next Pinot Noir?  so today I am focusing on most of the remaining wines that I tasted while in the region.

  • I'm picking up here where I last left off, halfway through reporting on mostly the 2009 vintage in Barolo.

  • I’ve had Zinfandel on my mind as of late. From attending the ZAP Festival in January right up to my recent efforts to pair grilling recipes with Zins, they’ve been a major focus of my recent efforts. While I have been celebrating the grape, there are so many great expressions available today, there is one aspect of Zinfandel that keeps it from b... Read More
