  • I can probably count the number of winemakers that I have met on one hand.  Invariably, though, I would describe them as approachable, open, and gracious people.  They have consistently treated me with tremendous respect and actually listen to my questions or my opinions as if they have never heard them before.  Their responses are always detail...

  • From my friend Hardy Wallace who is the wine maker for Dirty & Rowdy Family Winery. JD will remember when Hardy worked for Cathy Corison and we stopped by for a pretty cool tasting. But I digress... Hardy said in the email that he would be at Corison today and that if I was I the area it would behoove me to pay him a visit.I have been in the rig... Read More

  • But I think Wallace did in fact give credit to Darwin and actually acted as his champion, since Darwin was sickly from his voyages and Wallace was healthy. He recognized the volumes of work Darwin had amassed. The bit about viruses is really interesting - I remember reading years ago that maybe DNA itself is largely the result of viruses. So tha...

  • I should give credit to Wallace as well.  Darwin sat on his observations for a very long time, both because he was scientifically very cautious and because he was concerned about the impact.  As a science junkie and former student of the history and philosophy of science, I ought to do better. Talk about thread drift!

  • Darwin was remarkable for taking the leap he did.No question that Darwin's leap was remarkable.  Equally of interest, though, was that a contemporary, Alfred Russel Wallace, independently came to the same conclusion about what we now call Natural Selection.  Darwin and Russel did correspond, and when he realized that Russel's observations were l...

  • While traveling through Napa Valley last month I noticed that all the Vineyards I visited had roses planted around their crops. They're planted and watched closely for any early signs of infestation on the land. They monitor the Roses closely and upon early signs of problems, protective measures are taken to make sure the grape vines receive a s...

  • A few days ago I tasted a wine that aged in cement. I looked for more information on aging wine in cement but I didn't find much. If someone can tell me more about the process of aging wine in cement (and the benefits of doing so) then I would very much appreciate it.The wine was a Montecucco DOC. You can find my tasting notes for it here. http:... Read More

  •  Since my queries of this nature are usually tagged to the end of other threads of (somehwat) related nature, I figured I'd start one of dedicated nature. Hopefully this'll be easier to search for and come back to in the future.Here's an offer from HDH in Chicago. Anything of particular interest, or of relatively good pricing? This offer seems a...
