    Okay people listen up...since most of you dont want to do the research yourself...i did it for you. i spoke with the vender directly. the exact wine found at OG cannot be purchased. it is bottled in italy only for OG restaurants, and not sold anywhere else.

  • Since this subject never gets discussed on Snooth, I'm throwing out a challenge regarding New World sparkling wines. What are the sparkling wines we've found from the New World that are as good as, or in many cases better than large batches of the Champagnes, Proseccos, Cavas, etc. from Europe? I'm most familiar with the offerings from Californi... Read More

  • I know a good majority of Ports are from grapes like Zin, Cab, Grand Noir, muscat, etc, but what of some of these "newer wines" that are taking stage in the recent decades? Grapes with heavy heat, jam, fruit, and dark spices and earth. Are there are ports out there that utilize Malbec, Carmenere, etc? I think something like these wines, fortif... Read More

  • A friend's birthday dinner tonight at a steakhouse. A couple of us are bringing the wines and I'm trying to figure out the best order to pour them. I know conventional logic would say to stick with one or two varietals, but we choose to defy conventional logic. (We did stick to California, with one Aussie thrown in.) So here's what I'm think...

    Forum post in the topic Critique My Serving Sequence


  • Expectations and experience tend to soften excitement in wine, muffling the high pitch of greatness to meager moans. It can be difficult to savor the high highs once a sensory resume has been established, just as the anticipatory thrill of perfection can carve the pleasure from the stem like a critical mass. As oddly as it sounds, the Quilceda C... Read More

  • Hey...I'm new here...just found you all. I have a magnum bottle of wine from 1959 that I've been asked to sell. I went to Christies...and tried a couple of other wine sites. But they thought I had a case of it...not just a bottle. Any suggestions where I could go to see if I can sell this bottle of wine?Thanks...Wineybeach Read More

  • I am not a mathematician but I wonder if there is a formula to obtain a value rate using price and scores (100/100). I.e. Wine A costs $20 and gets a score of 90 points and Wine B costs $45 and gets a score of 90 points as well; is there a formula that can tell me (mathematically) that the value of Wine A is higher?I am sure one of you may have ...
