  • We've had a relationship with wine for several millennia and counting. This relationship has been documented in a number of ways, but so much has been lost to the ravages of time. Gaps in history leave wine culture open to interpretation, but with the dawn of modern media things have changed. Whether we like it or not, modern media will help us ... Read More

  • I tried the Marrietta Old Vine Red wine Lot No. 62 received  lot of praise. I know where I can get it.  So, I'll pick up 64.Here is another Costco wine: Nothing offensive about it and easy to drink.  Easily worth the $12 that I paid for it but, definitely, not worth more than $20.  Cherry mixed with stone fruit on entry, light on tannin, OK on a...

  • Some Burgundy winemakers pull their noses up at Beaujolais but, like it or not, these hilly picturesque vineyards just up the road from Macon are an integral part of the illustrious Burgundy region of central France. Why do some pooh-pooh their neighbour? It has a lot to do with grape varieties; Burgundy’s red is the classic Pinot Noir whilst Be... Read More
