  • The majority of wines on the market these days are meant to be consumed within one to five years. This is a natural law.

    Wine review by Barberolo

  • For some time now, I have noticed a pattern with men who disparage rose as being a "girly" wine. Some of the most accomplished and masculine sommeliers I know would rather drink rose than pretty much anything else. Any thoughts on the male problem with drinking rose? Read More
