Irony

Most of us didn't imagine where we would be right now. Sure, we dreamed of being firemen, astronauts, rock stars and superheroes, but life often takes you where you didn't expect it to. My brother and I worked every harvest from the time we could ride our bikes. After college, our careers took us beyond the land our grandfather planted in 1924. Ironically, today we are more fulfilled, working side-by-side at the family vineyard & winery. We didn't plan it or expect it, but we are enjoying this strange twist in our lives. That's Irony - a bottle full of life's strange twists and a celebration of our family's life-long commitment to producing the finest quality wines. -- Chris & Jay – Description from dvoristanac

    Forum post in the topic Unoaked vs Oaked Chardonnay


  • In defense of Oaked and Buttery Chardonnays I must say that "I like it".  I know the trend is for the unoaked stainless steel ferment to be on the rise and people are saying that they prefer it over the "Other kind". That may be the trend but the Oaked and Buttery varieties are still my favorites although the unoaked brands are ok also.So in fin... Read More

  • Yep. It's that unintentional irony that irritates me about his writing in general. He can be OK when he sticks to the facts, but even there half the time he makes inane comments. Years ago he visited some small cafe in Italy and marvelled that they just brought out what we'd consider juice glasses and poured their house wine into those. His writ... Read More
