My brother and his family live in Mt. Herman over in the mountains by Santa Cruz. His commute is nuts, but the town is a beautiful mountain village. A mountain side creek not far from his house a trails to hike. I like his area, but not the prices. Read More
Hello all,I'm not actually a beginner in wine preparation. I started preparing wine 3 months ago. I've tasted different varieties of wine and my favorite is Merlot wine. I had a doubt earlier on how to store the prepared wine. I searched many sources and asked many friends and I happened to read an article yesterday which had tips to properly s... Read More
If I had a Twitter account, I'd probably remind all my friends to drink French today. (Funny how I don't really celebrate Italian independence day, or Republic Day, or the anniversary of the unification of Italy, which unluckily for it falls on March 17.) Not trying to get too political, so let's just say that France certainly has a big impact... Read More
Had a great first full day here in south central California. Started off with a very good breakfast at the ForFriends B&B in Santa Ynez. Too early for any of the tasting rooms to be open so we headed down to Jalama beach for some salt air and scenery. Beautiful beach with some interesting campsites and about a half dozen surfers enjoying some mo... Read More
This is a report I adapted from my recap on WB. Unfortunately a few guests fell ill in the days prior and had to bow out. Missed you Richard! All in all it was a fun evening with some interesting wines. Plenty of left overs to start the next incarnation. Weather was rain in the AM and we feared having to host indoors but the skies cleared around... Read More
We feel that if a geographic area has shown wine excellence throughout a long history, then even more sublime heights can be reached with the addition of a dose of passion and attention. Campania was the breadbasket of Ancient Rome. Fruits, nuts, grains, seafood, meats, olive oil – authors from Virgil to Pliny to Columella agreed that if those i... Read More

So, I finally re-introduced myself to Zinfandel. I bought a half bottle of Seghesio Sonoma '12. I decantered it for 1 hour and ate it with spaghetti w/tomato-basil sauce. The wine was dominated by the alcohol -- 14.8% -- and while I tasted black fruit and a very interesting roasted sage note on the mid-palate, the alcohol drive of the wine ma... Read More
There is a winery in Mt Vernon that makes a beautiful St. Vincent, and Seyval Blanc, Montelle makes a delicious Seyval Blanc, and I have even had a good Cab Franc on occasion. And I do like the Norton, in particular, Bommarito in New Haven. Also, there's a guy in St. James, Heinrich, who is an old German in overalls and a beret who makes delic... Read More
