  • November 28 update:We were back in Amador County for Thanksgiving.  (Puppy bonding took precedence over family this year, so we left the Bay Area to get away from everyone.)  While there we stayed at Rest, A Boutique Hotel.

  • White wines are a summer classic, but it has been a long summer. There is a good chance that you are surfeit with white wine by now. Ultra-hip rosé and orange wines aren’t your only options. Be a true trendsetter and cozy up with a late summer red. Summer calls for diaphanous red wine grapes that allow fresh fruits to shine without the deep, dar... Read More

  • Day 2 update:I think the biggest takeaway from this trip is going to be...It really AIN’T all about the Zin!In fact, Zin biggots (like you, EMark) are welcome here with opened arms. While Zin is Lodi’s flagship wine, it is not by any means the only grape upon which the region hangs its hat. I’m sure many of you who’ve had a chance to visit or ta... Read More

  • "When the moon hits your eye/like a big pizza pie/that's amore."As we ate our breakfast on Sunday morning at the Imperial Hotel in Amador City, the soundtrack subtly changed.  Last night at dinner and halfway through breakfast, the soundtrack was from the same era, but Sam Cooke sent us, and Ray Charles warned us about women.  This morning, with...

  • Man's best friend is a logical pairing for man's best drink. This past week reporter Lauren Eads, a reporter for European industry publication The Drinks Business, published a list of the top ten winery dogs which included pooches – and two donkeys to boot – from three different countries. “Wherever wine is made, it's likely that canine companio...

  • The Scherrers respond personally to every email I send them.  They are awesome.  I've been touting their wines on here for years.  Glad to see them getting so much love.Mike is smart and opinionated.  He can be a little prickly, but he actually has a really amazing sense of what matters.  Ask him sometime why a wine like DRC can cost as much as ...
