  • Due to popular demand (don't ask where that demand came from or you'll spoil my fun), we appear to need some new wine discussion topics.  This topic was only relevant to Thursday as a test case but was subsequently expanded to cover the weekend too.  What ever you bring up in this topic should either occur on a Thursday - Sunday, or it could be ...

  • There’s nothing more comforting and warming on a cold winter evening than a roaring fire and a full-bodied, robust red wine – one with a bit of oomph.  The frigid season ushers in hearty, meaty dishes with bold flavors that require wines equally as bold and assertive. While I can go down the list, the first four chest-thumping, macho grape varie... Read More

  • My dad's mother's mother was born on a farm in Alberta, while my dad's great grandfather and great great uncle had a cup of coffee in Nova Scotia before deciding California looked a lot less like the Scotland they were leaving and all around better. Not sure anyone's really 'Canadian' in background, certainly in genetic terms, unless they're a m... Read More

  • OK, quiz time. Thought I'd start a challenge where we can throw quotes out at the group, which has to then guess attribution. Who said it, and if possible when, why, etc.?Hints are allowed, even preferred. Person who gets the attribution right then gets to offer up their query.This would've been a lot more fun 20 yrs ago before the web. So yeah,... Read More

  • Emark - I see no science at all here. All Zin is from century-old vines. As far as I know, ZIn wasn't hybridized this century, or even last century, so all the Zin in the world is coming from some original plant.It's not like it's the son or daughter, it IS the original plant.I just got done cutting back my roses. Some of them date from the late... Read More

  • California "Old Vine" wines, Zinfandel, especially, have been getting a lot of attention in the last few years.  I, certainly, have been paying more attention to them, lately, mostly as a result of the postings of Outthere on some of the historic vineyards in his neck of the woods.  He interested me enough to join the Historic Vineyard Society, ...

  • It's not often that I have a plan. Well, a detailed plan at least.. Some sort of a plan not being a requirement for those in this business. But a detailed plan, and over-arching theme for a visit to wine country can certainly come in handy.  This month’s, or rather last month’s theme was, surprisingly enough: Zinfandel. I say surprisingly becaus... Read More

  • Chardonnay is an ideal wine to pair with many grilled foods. For one thing, it’s immensely popular—I have friends who prefer it to anything else. It is also extremely versatile, with the best examples having not only the acidity to cut through the grease and char that one expects from a lot of grilled foods, but also a richness that helps it sta...

  • If you're familiar with Austrian wine, you are more than likely familiar with Weingut Nikolaihof. For decades, Nikolaihof has, perhaps unwittingly, been at the forefront of quality wine production in Austria and the world.Consider the fact that Nikolaihof has been practicing organic viticulture for about 50 years. This was not necessarily due to... Read More
