  • I'm coming to LA in September.  It's for a conference, on a weekend.  I'm staying downtown at the Biltmore.  I need a recommendation for a restaurant on Fri and Saturday.  It would be good if it was walkable, since the conference isn't providing a car.  Not outrageously expensive, since I'll be with colleagues and wife will be home.  But need a ...

  • The cork vs. screwcap as a wine bottle closure argument/discussion has been done more than once on these pages.  My point here is to encourage some discussion around the merits (or lack-there-of) of arguments in favor of cork as an ethical choice, similar to choosing organic wines, etc.The journalof the Ecological Society Of America published th...

Some think that the en primeur campaign is now being played out in more dynamic economies like China and Brazil, but the way things are going, it looks increasingly like a speculative bubble, with chateaux releasing less wine at higher prices - feeding a speculative frenzy. It would be better to not bother in most cas... Read More

What results? Hopefully a bubble in prices that can't continue indefinitely, after an event like the likely Chinese bubble burst within a coup... Read More
