  • “Armagnac, not the best known, but known by the best,” is a saying in the Gascony region of Southwest France. Indeed, Armagnac, a distilled grape juice that is 150 years older than Cognac, is often confused with its cousin. Yet, although they may be blood relations, they’re not even on speaking terms.

  • Welcome, Calvin.  I know that you will enjoy your wine adventures.Let me help you out, a bit, on serving temperatures.  Typically, white wines are served chilled.  The definition of "chilled" depends on the server.  For most people it means the wine has been in the refrigerator for, at least, a few hours.  Now, some people will argue that "refri...
