  • Coca Cola's wanted to be in wine for a long time. Think they owned Sterling for a moment, though after they quickly bailed on it Diageo later acquired it and still holds it even after their wine portfolio divestiture. TWG's very skimpy website gives a patchwork history. Not too surprising that Coca Cola hasn't gotten it right since they took so ... Read More

  • MrWino, one thing you need to keep in context here is the thread is titled "Wine you would not drink again (given the choice)"We are only speaking for our own palates and which wines do not appeal to us. YMMV should be a footnote to every response here. We're not telling people what they should or should not like. We're just expressing what we d... Read More

  • Was just reading an article that stated that pregnant women should consider craft beer the same as wine in their drinking strategies. Then an article about craft beer in SLO county. Then saw this:  Any thoughts? Read More

  • While looking at the NYTimes food section, I saw a piece for this book by Lonely Planet, the budget/alt travel guide company. Used one of their books in Mexico recently, and used them when I hitched across Canada in 1990.  Not sure how deep their expertise is in this area.  I looked through the table of contents and it's fairly basic:  Major win...

  • VV, if you liked the Kenneth Volk Malvasia, K&L has it on sale. Clendenen makes a Nebbiolo--he has a tiny patch up on a hill separate from his other vines.  It's actually pretty good, and occasionally can be found at K&L and a few other places.  I matched it against an Aldo Conterno basic Barolo a while ago, and it was pretty hard to tell which ...

  • Red - one of the problems with recs for places like World Market and Total Wine is that you have to get the recommendations from someone in your area. The stores will have similar wines in most places, but there may be local differences, based on what's available from the local distributors. My suggestion is to look at Costco if there's one near...

  • 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

  • Hi everyone.  This is my first post on the boards.  My wife and I are doing a long weekend in Healdsburg (Jan 15-17) and Yountville (Jan 17-19) over MLK weekend and were looking for some recommendations on wineries to visit.  We tend to like more full bodied red wines, but are open to other wines as well. We are from New York and want to focus o... Read More

  • No, not for ice. That was a very inexpensive bottle bottle of wine when it was released - fairly bad even then. Ten years later the people in Chianti decided that they had to do something about the reputation of the area and they established some rules for wine that was going to be called Chianti.Some producers even stopped putting the word "Chi...
