Story Winery on Snooth

  • Columbia Valley, Columbia Gorge, and Walla Walla Valley: a triumvirate of outstanding wine producing regions with a fascinating twist. While there are numerous ways in which these three areas are vastly different from each other, they have one key similarity. Their acreage spans across both Washington and Oregon states. I spent a week traveling ... Read More

  • Post here about wines that used to satisfy, but for whatever reason (corporate buyout, founder dying, price gouging or other repositionings resulting from lusting lunges towards greater monetary reward, etc., etc. ad nauseum) have either disappeared or now become a disappointment. The more story, the better.I'll get the ball rolling with some si... Read More

  • EMARK - My turn - Foppoano was one of my first experiences with good Petit Sirah.  They've been around for ever.  There's a great story about what happened their winery during prohibition - barrel dumping and the like.  Good choice. Read More

  • Mike did that with his own wines, which he tastes every day.  I imagine he could do it with some others as well.  And I can imagine that GregT can do that with Riojas because he tastes a lot of them, does so frequently, and pays a lot of attention to them.  But there's a real limit to human perception. Note that GregT cannot do the same with tho... Read More

  • Jist for THOI is searched through about 600 wines from Germany (Many of them overlapping.)  that are available on the internet.  There were less than 10 reds from Germany - only Spatburgunder and Dornfelder.  There were a few Zweigelt from Austria - which is a varietal I find interesting and represents a different wine exoerience.  There were ZE...

    Forum post in the topic Searching for Mosel Reds


  • Hi. I was recently going through my pictures from Germany along the Rhine in 2000. I drank an awesome red wine there from the Mosel area. This wine tasted almost like fruit juice and was the best I had ever tasted. I don't remember the name and have been unable to find any wine that matched the flavor of that wine. Any suggestions as to where I ... Read More

  • This morning I was pontificating in the coffee shop about wine bottle labeling.  My buddy, being the the ex-lawyer type, asked a lawyer question.  Who monitors this stuff?I then realized that I had never heard of anybody (OK, I'm talking domestically, here.) being accused of say:Labeling a bottle as "Cabernet Sauvignon" and, then, being caught f...

  • Nice haul, RBA.  I was eying some Goldeneye, the "normale" PN, today on JJBuckley, but I will probably buy it through a friend who does their PR. Instead I bought some 2002 Robert Hunter Brut de Noirs "Extended Tirage" bubbles from LastBottle.  Yes, 14 year old bubbles.  It's the current release, and will be the last, as the winery is shutting d...

  • I was lucky enough to visit the Story folks on a Monday when the tasting room was less crowded - and talked to winemaker Ken Stetson. So much passion and knowledge goes into each of the Story labels! I'm hooked on Picnic Hill but many of my friends swear by Creekside Zin and Hillside Zin... Try them all!
