I bought this bottle of wine from a shop in London's Notting Hill [www.oddbins.com ] for £12. Saint Veran is an appellation created in 1971,although viticulture has been carried out in the area since at least the Romans,for white wines made of the chardonnay grape from 8 communes in the southern part of the Maconais region of Burgundy.Some of th...

Hi, I'm Bruce. I'm a UC Davis graduate of enology (26 years ago..alas) and have recently joined Snooth. I was a former winemaker and enologist at two wineries on Long Island during the 1990s and am now semi-retired in Sarasota, FL.I'm still working in the wine trade, part-time in retail, but otherwise retired. I'm still active in wine and eno... Read More
One of our charming new posters, cysurvivor, was fishing for recommendations here for a visit over MLK weekend. Since we're all pretty free with our half-baked ideas and opinions, we had plenty of ideas for him, didn't we? Since Mauritson kept showing up on the list, it looked like it would make the final cut, so I went on private messaging an... Read More
America’s first vertical tasting of the fine wines of Podere Sapaio from Bolgheri in Coastal Tuscany took place at my restaurant, Undici Taverna Rustica in Rumson, NJ, this past year. Owner, enologist Massimo Piccin was present and told us, “We are wine. We are men and women winemakers who transform grapes into wine by means of our know-how, our... Read More

Most of the mention here is pretty generic, and doesn't get down to any level of detail.Would like to suggest we take up the subject of wines from this grape with better focus. Where is good, who makes the goo... Read More

A team of archaeologists have uncovered the remains of an ancient temple and cellar in the Georgian capital city of Tbilisi dating back to the first millennium BC, according to a story this past week on English-language site Agenda.ge. “An archaeological team from the Georgian National Museum uncovered ...

We finally got the news that we are approved for our planning permit. Now comes the really trying part: building permits, contractors' estimates, dislocation, refinancing, and dealing with the neighbor who tried to stop the project and who will harass the contractor. But it's official: I get a basement with room for a real cellar with temper... Read More
I can probably count the number of winemakers that I have met on one hand. Invariably, though, I would describe them as approachable, open, and gracious people. They have consistently treated me with tremendous respect and actually listen to my questions or my opinions as if they have never heard them before. Their responses are always detail... Read More
100% varietal, purchased from a neighboring family vineyard. Cherry, pepper, and tomato leaf. A pretty typical Virginia varietal. Read More
I should have used an emoticon rather than rely on other posters who have read hundreds of my posts realizing that I didn't agree with the opinion expressed by a new poster. So I'll make it clear: MACHINE HARVESTING < HAND HARVESTING. (For those rusty on math symbols, or fans of Orwell, Machine Harvesting bad, hand harvesting good, even double ... Read More
