  • When you think of drinking wine at the appropriate age, what picture comes to mind? Usually it is a red wine. Maybe a decanter is involved? It’s a special occasion or with friends and family. However, not all wine is designed to age a long time. I have heard so many stories of people saving a bottle of wine that they were given as a gift only to... Read More

  • According to the experts, wine tourism attracts a large number of domestic and overseas visitors in Spain (one of the most popular destinations around the world) and the figures can grow in such country during the next months thanks to its amazing infraestructures and tourist attractions in the main areas where people can taste the local wine pr...

  • Yep. I just don't see it working for most people - telling them some wine got 90 points from someone just doesn't mean anything. If they don't care about the wine, then they sure as hell are not likely to know the various critics working for the various publications. And if they don't know Wine Advocate or Wine Spectator, then it doesn't matter ... Read More

  • Hi everybody I'm a small store owner at the edge of the rust belt, my customers rarely spend over $20 for a bottle, and I am looking to improve my selection a bit beyond what is here now. If you have a minute to help a guy out let me know what you think are the best wines that usually sell for $20 or less. Thanks ! Read More

  • One of our charming new posters, cysurvivor, was fishing for recommendations here for a visit over MLK weekend.  Since we're all pretty free with our half-baked ideas and opinions, we had plenty of ideas for him, didn't we?  Since Mauritson kept showing up on the list, it looked like it would make the final cut, so I went on private messaging an...

  • Red, it's context:  Pinot is supposed to deliver a certain kind of flavor, aroma, mouthfeel, and, for me, none of that is there with Meiomi.  I wouldn't bash it if I didn't try it.  (I didn't really bash it so much, either, just said it wasn't much like PN to me and wasn't very enjoyable.)  Big commercial wines:  Well, define that.  A lot of goo...

  • 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
