  • What are the secrets of a winemaker with over one hundred 90+ point wines across decades, appellations, and grapes? Perhaps it’s like any top chef: Add a pinch of this, a dash of that, and voila – you’ve got an award winning product. But decorated Murrieta’s Well winemaker Robbie Meyer doesn’t believe in recipes.

  • @DMCKERYes I have tried all the wines you mentioned except Icewine. The icewine was a gift and I never thought to seek it out.

  • There are hundreds of sweet wines but if we had a survey to name just one, bet your bottom dollar that Sauternes would be top of the list. This famous French sweetie is served at posh dinner parties and top restaurants around the world, usually in those silly little ‘thimble’ glasses but hey, let’s talk about the wine itself for a minute. The Sa... Read More
