  • Al - blind tasting is a great way to learn. However, it's better if you ... you ... more nuanced wines, dare I say, wines with "finesse"?That's nonsense.

  • New Year’s Eve is fast approaching, and sparkling wines are on our minds. I love Champagne and recommend that people think of it more as a wine and pair it with dinner instead of just aperitifs and pre-meal toasts.
