  • As an avid (and confirmed) beer drinker, I've come into the wine scene late.  I would drink wine before, but I never really challenged my palate.  Fortunately for me, I'm burning my GI Bill attending a culinary school, and thus, got to take a couple of wine classes.  That's been it for me.  I've jumped all over the map, and have encountered grea...

  • Hey everyone, what are some of your favorite 'everyday' or M-F types of wines to accompany a regular dinner?  I personally have enjoyed the Montoya Cabernet Sauvignon from Napa, and I usually pick it up from Total Wines out here in Virginia.  This is one of those fruit-forward cabs that isn't too complex for me to appreciate, and it usually cost...

  • Hi guys:I was at a local wine and liquor store today; I buy quite a bit of stuff from them but don't really know any of the staff. It was quite warm and I was out running errands. I decided to stop by and pick up a few bottles of inexpensive wine (sub $15) that I can use in part for cooking.I guess maybe my hand was a little sweaty or something ... Read More

  • Hi everyone.  My wife Sandra and I have been into wine for the past few years and that's led to a few trips to Napa Valley and related areas in 2012 and 2013.  We enjoy all wines but reds are our favorites.  We hosted our first wine tasting party last night and it was a fun event - sixteen wine lovers trying different wines in a blind tasting.  ...

  • Barolo, while experiencing the greatest explosion of interest in its history, remains a bit of an enigma to many winelovers. The greatest wines have percolated their way up to the top of most people’s lists, both in regards to pricing, and esteem, but top wines are never simply about their quality.  Top wines have always also been about their re...

  • It being earth day tomorrow I thought this would be a fine time to explore attitude towards the whole organic/natural/biodynamic movement. I reached out to some wine professionals to get their opinions about these wines, but before I turn the stage over to them I’d like to explore the situation briefly.Before we consider the value of these wines...

  • In getting together with some LA and OC wine folks yesterday, I brought along this 1961 Oddero Barolo to the party that also featured a '66 Lafite, and a '66 Haut Brion, among others. I had sourced this Barolo just last week as something to throw at the pair of old 1st growth wolves, and spice things up. Sitting here this morning, I can easily c... Read More

  • Returning to the original topic, I'm still sticking with the margarita crowd.Continuing the thread drift, I have never really bought into the appeal of food trucks.  My attitude is the put wheels on them so that they could come to where I am.  There were some convenient food trucks at the LBGP, last week, and that is great.  I actually bought a ...
