  • Yeah, where did anyone get the idea the food was Indian? Gewurz is much more polarizing.  I don't have a father in law but I do generally favor pleasing your in-laws, up to a point.  I do agree with GregT that Gewurz is really wild and exciting at first, but wears on you very quickly.  Once in a blue moon I find one I like.There are also a few b...

  • Old Moon Zinfandel Old Vine 2013

    Snoothrank:

  • Rimmerman's bombast has been known to turn off more than a few readers, but I've had some success with his offerings in the past. This is one that caught my interest in the past day, because the backstory about Beaujolais is something I've thought for decades.

  • Winemakers are buying into the idea of biodynamic winemaking. This past week United Kingdom-based newspaper The Independent examined the emergence of biodynamic winemaking in the global market, offering the reader background about the movement, its tenets and what kind of price tags you can expect. “Wine making is a complicated business.
