@ DVOGLER…Apparently you didn't read what I said previously...@DEVOLGER Reply Jan 19.…"Yes, I do buy wines of the shelve of a few wine stores somewhat blindly.

Going back to the Lingcod story I hinted at in the other thread, here's how that went...I just remember trying Lingcod years ago at some place like King's fish house, and then never seeing it again. I'd even read fish reports in the newspaper and hardly see any caught except sometimes a few in Oxnard, etc. Seems like they are mostly caught off o... Read More
OK, this is a topic that hasn't come up recently but has many times in the past. How to store wine in the house? Whether to refrigerate? How to choose passive or refrigerated wine cellars? What kind of wine fridges are best? Etc., etc.I was doing some real estate shopping in the Ventura/Santa Barbara counties area and ran across a higher-end h... Read More

As some of you might remember I´ve built an underground winecellar about 1 year ago:http://www.snooth.com/talk/topic/building-my-underground-wine-cellar/The cellar is made of insulating concrete (basically like a swimming pool), which has the advantage of very stable conditions. My problem now is the temperature.Temperature balanced out at exact... Read More
I loved GDP's article on corkage fees, guidance, and what to expect. I did, however, feel there were some regional/establishment level variabilities though. I will start by saying that here in the suburbs of SF bay area (CA, USA), corkage fees can be ridiculous for what you get (cheap glasses, lack of service) AND corresponding wine lists can b...

What are the "must-have-wines" when you visit a wine bar? Or just stuff you'd really like to see. This can become tricky with "by-the-glass" stuff, because I imagine people can become quite cautious with a glass of wine above the $12 figure. Any insights?? Read More
