  • Our courtyard is the perfect place, at least at this time of year.  It has seen many gatherings of friends and acquaintances to enjoy a little fruit and cheese, a little wine, and a lot of conversation.  What, after all, can be more important than trying to communicate with other humans -- and how better than in my courtyard and over a nice glas...

  • I know of a number of people in the craft beer world who are purposely introducing brettanomyces into the brewing equation to see how interesting things can get. 'Wild yeast' beers are barely (not) controllable but they are rapidly becoming cult items. Case in point, this quote about a Sierra Nevada brew, taken from Good Morning America: Sierra ... Read More

  • So my wife loves zins but we really like a velvety mouth feel with some good fruit.  Right now our favorite is The Zin by Cosentino.  If anyone has recommendations my wife is starting to sware off all other booze except this zin so help me out.  We are open to other reds as well. Read More

  • This year I am working on an initiative to add voices to Snooth. For years we've been working with other wine writers, sharing our audience with them because we feel that having multiple voices speaking articulately about a subject is always preferable to a lone voice.
