Anyone have any experience?I've noticed Kelley mentioned among the best company in Oregon Pinot, popular with Somm's and the like. Being a Burgundy lover, I've mostly found CA Pinot painful (though I've found a few I like!), and Oregon Pinot quite a bit more elegant, but sometimes or most of the time more boring rather than painful (as I find wi...

I'll be in Germany next week, and once I arrive I plan to drag my jet-lagged self to Alsace, France to tour a few wineries there (a couple hours from Frankfurt). BUT- I'm not really into white wines as much as reds, though I don't mind Gewurtzraminer and Dry Riesling.But I am thinking of taking a day off toward the end of the week. I can get pre... Read More

Some bottles were consumed quickly but others are in storage awaiting the right moment to enjoy them. Thanks to everyone for participating. Final pairings are listed below:JONDERRY - received bo...

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 ... Read More
Inspired to build an authentic medieval castle to honor his Italian heritage and showcase his exceptional wines, Dario Sattui studied architecture for 30 years before he created Castello di Amorosa. The 121,000-squarefoot fortress took 14 years to build, stone by stone. The Castello has 107 rooms, 95 of which are used for winemaking and wine sto... Read More
I was wondering what sort of new topic I could start that would pair nicely with my previous posting 'Weekday Wines'; well here it is - Weekend Wines. Sometimes I just have to stop and take a minute to pat myself on the back for my quick wit but alas, this isn't one of those times. Anyway, why not talk about wines we enjoy on weekends? These ...

Hey everyone, what are some of your favorite 'everyday' or M-F types of wines to accompany a regular dinner? I personally have enjoyed the Montoya Cabernet Sauvignon from Napa, and I usually pick it up from Total Wines out here in Virginia. This is one of those fruit-forward cabs that isn't too complex for me to appreciate, and it usually cost... Read More
