  • Galileo once said “Wine is water, held together by sunlight.” With all the record rainfall that NY has been getting this year, it’s been impossible not to think about how water affects wine quality.  Too much or too little can significantly impact the way a harvest will develop.  Since the largest chemical component of wine is also water, Galile...

  • EM - Yes, lots of older riders have their bikes shipped out to some place near Sturgis, but when I do that event, I will ride there.  It will just have to be a two or three week vacation, that's all.  One reason we are driving to Wyoming this year is to see the 'fly-over' portion of the country that we haven't seen.  We have driven quite a bit o...

  • A new year provides the perfect opportunity to try new things, but how far will you go?  Many wine drinkers cling to familiar grape varieties or settle for what’s in easy reach.

As were the food pairings...Simple Pizza/Pancake for the Champagne - Clos des GoissesSome Salmon sashimi w/ the 66' Bollinger.

  • It’s summer. The weather is warm and if you are like me, your thoughts are turning to more white wines rather than the hearty reds of winter. There is one style which is making a statement this season however and that is Rosé. It’s a beautiful mix of the lightness of a white wine with a bit of classy structure hinting of its origins as red wine ... Read More

  • To press or not to press? That is NOT the question. Rarely does anything in winemaking have an absolute however pressing is one of the few. Grapes must be pressed at some point in the process to release the juice or wine. However, even though grapes must eventually be pressed, it is the when, how and how much that are open to interpretation. Wha... Read More

  • When you think of drinking wine at the appropriate age, what picture comes to mind? Usually it is a red wine. Maybe a decanter is involved? It’s a special occasion or with friends and family.

  • I have a confession to make publicly. I am a Yeast Wrangler. In every fermentation, every harvest, I try to get inside the minds of these tiny fungi and discern what they want to eat, how they would like to be treated, and what temperature they would like their environment to be. They make the wine and winemakers try to keep them happy. They are... Read More
