  • Unless you bought them with aging potential in mind, a fair few of your 2013 pink and white wines won’t be drinkable by next spring. Guzzle down the last of those quick-to-turn bottles, cellar a few others, and ready yourself for the onset of fall wines. Even if you do not live in a starkly transitional climate, this a great time to think about ... 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

  • Montalcino is a beautiful medieval hilltop village just 40 miles south of Siena, on the ancient roadway to Rome. It is dominated by a castle, called La Fortezza, which doubles as an enoteca and wine shop. La Fortezza offers most of the wines of the zone, plus older vintages, as well as honey, olive oil, jams and the like. It also offers a breath... Read More

  • Mt. Etna is located in northeastern Sicily in the province of Catania. Viticulture on the lower slopes of Mt. Etna dates back millennia. We live, however, in an age where we want to know what you have done for me lately. That’s good news for Etna’s DOC wines. Winemaking on Europe’s most active volcano is hot, both literally and figuratively. Etn... Read More

  • The reach of Santa Rosa-based Jackson Family Wines now stretches from one side of the world to the other. The family-owned winery recently purchased South Africa's Fijnbosch farm, a piece of land which, according to the Santa Rosa Press Democrat, includes a 20-acre vineyard in South Africa's famed Stellenbosch region. “The family has been lookin...

  • Lucky you.  I was just there... Piedmont is pretty stretched out.  If you want to be in Barolo/Barbaresco country, I stayed at a really nice agriturismo (read: Bed and Breakfast) in Castiglione Falletto called Tenuta Montanello.  It's a working winery, although not one of the stars.  But the hosts are extremely nice and it's quite reasonable.  I...

  • What a disappointment!! Even their best wines were nothing out of the ordinary and they wanted $40 a bottle!! I think $10 a bottle would have been more fitting. Don't get me wrong, most are not bad (some are, though), they are all just non-descript - and I am a long-time wine appreciater. On top of it, their "Holiday Event" is a bunch of h...
