As a result, a survey of current release Petite Sirah from several producers might easily span four or more vintages. The wines selected for you below, all current releases from Northern California, run from 2009... Read More

  • A new trend in winemaking may make you wonder what today's vintners are smoking. This past month The Telegraph reporter Victoria Moore explored the small renaissance clay pots are enjoying in the winemaking world, a nod back to the days of the Roman empire when wines were stored in similar containers. “The Greek and the Romans both used large po...

  • Rioja remains one of the very last bastions of value when it comes to traditionally styled wines. However, it offers consumers considerably more than that: it affords consumers the chance to purchase aged wines that are ready to drink at prices that make them undeniable bargains. But today that is not what I want to talk about. I’m still going t... Read More

  • Getting back your roots is a matter of blending, according to a story this past by The Australian's Max Allen.  “In our modern world we've become obsessed with single varietal wines, where each type of grape is kept separate from the others in the vineyard and the winery – planted on its own, picked on its own, fermented on its own, bottle on it...
