  • Okay, so I admit it:  I like to buy things for less than I think they are worth.  And what a great time for that in wine.  Wineries are unloading library wines and cutting prices, but there are even better deals to be had.  Wineries bottle up excess wine and sell it without a label to a broker who can't say exactly what it is, but can use the AV...

  • What are the "must-have-wines" when you visit a wine bar?  Or just stuff you'd really like to see. This can become tricky with "by-the-glass" stuff, because I imagine people can become quite cautious with a glass of wine above the $12 figure. Any insights?? Read More

  • Hi, I am looking to buy birth year bottles for my girls (born in '95 and '97).  Which region and varietal can hold up for 21 years before popping the cork?  I'm guessing French wines will be the most common response, but my knowledge to this region is pretty limited (primarily drink CA, WA, and Italian wines).  Also not looking to break the bank...

  • Hey all. I'm a wine reviewer, and I just launched an article on some pretty great Rhone blends from Calcareous Vineyards, out of Paso Robles. Plus, I'm going to be attending a Rhone Rangers tasting in a couple of days, so I've got the region on my mind. What are some of your favorite Rhone grapes, regions (New or Old World), and producers? This ... Read More

  • I know that the words 'produced', 'vinted', 'made', and 'bottled' are all legally different.  I understand a little about what each one means.What I don't understand yet is how each relates to the general quality of the wine in the bottle.  Is a wine 'produced and bottled' by a winery usually better that one 'vinted and bottled'?   And is it a b...

  • I am from Vancouver Canada.I really want to find out how I can secure a few cases of this wine.  It is delicious and the price is right.  If you have any information please let me know or post to this forum.  The wine is from South East Australia.  I have emailed several people in Australia related to the company but so far no response.  I am ve...

  • For several years now, I've been tipping 10% on bottles of wine and 20+% on food (depending on service).  I feel no more effort is exerted by the servers if I'm drinking a $200 bottle of wine than they would for a $30 bottle. So, why should they, by simple math, profit from one of the highest price point items in the restaurant?  Seems going to ... Read More

  • At the Snooth wine blogger dinner last night, a conversation kicked up about the difficulty of deciding when to open those "special" bottles.Have you ever wanted to open a "special" bottle (subjective, yes -- for some people this means expensive, old, or just especially anticipated) -- but hesitated doing so without a sufficiently "special" occa...

  • The wife & I are making our first trip to Napa for a two day excursion.  We have been doing a lot of research, including reading up on the previous forum posts, thanks Honda John for your informative essay!  We're a little worried about going during the summer, and on a weekend, but it was the only time it worked for us, especially since we live...
