  • This is not your first Thanksgiving rodeo. It's not ours, either. We've brought you a panoply of Thanksgiving table wine suggestions over the past ten years. There was the time we assured you that Thanksgiving wines wouldn't break your bank. In fact, we've discussed Thanksgiving value wines time and time again. We've been here for you during Tha...

  • A few days ago I participated in a tasting/pairing event that featured white wines. One of the wines was Chablis, and, while discussing this one, the facilitator stated that it was fermented in steel and had never seen oak.  I asked if that was common for the region and he responded that it was absolutely the case, and was so for all white wines...

  • Long Shadows seems like a guest chef program, but in wine.  In college, our dining program would bring in chefs from around the US about four times a year under the "Cross Country Gourmet" rubric.  There was a lottery type system with a limited number of seats, and someone would come from a resto and we'd get a decent meal on our own turf.  LS g...

  • Can anyone help me figure out the difference between the Dave Phinney (Orin Swift) Locations F1, F2 and F3 wines. I tried one that was listed as a 2011 vintage.

  • Not much wine talk this weekend, so sharing a few thoughts on the subject.A friend of mine recently said "there's only two days in a year I don't drink coffee", and I've also noticed that I'm pretty much drinking a cup every morning, sometimes iced tea with lunch. For a little while, I even got in to ordering a french press while out for breakfa... Read More

  • Hey, I hear that VTs are coming back, with one scheduled for March!  Not to steal the thunder, so I won't leak what the region/grape is going to be (regulars, watch your mail boxes if you live in the US), but it's going to be good if my inbox is any indication.I'm opening up the floor to ask the question, "Who do you think will be the host?"  Ma...

  • Get ready for a wine-and-milk shakedown. Earlier this month restaurant chain Red Robin Gourmet Burgers released a series of new menu items which included the Divalicious Red Wine Shake, “a delectable combination of Little Black Dress Divalicious red wine, Pinnacle whipped vodka, raspberry pureé and creamy vanilla soft serve,” the company said in...
