  • If the walls of an old Irish village could speak, they'd probably tell you they're sorry they didn't leave you any wine.  An excavation on of a former memorial garden on Society Street in the Irish town of Derry-Londonderry revealed the ruins of a village said to have been destroyed in a rebellion in 1608, said the BBC in a story published today...

  • OK, quiz time. Thought I'd start a challenge where we can throw quotes out at the group, which has to then guess attribution. Who said it, and if possible when, why, etc.?Hints are allowed, even preferred. Person who gets the attribution right then gets to offer up their query.This would've been a lot more fun 20 yrs ago before the web. So yeah,... Read More

  • California "Old Vine" wines, Zinfandel, especially, have been getting a lot of attention in the last few years.  I, certainly, have been paying more attention to them, lately, mostly as a result of the postings of Outthere on some of the historic vineyards in his neck of the woods.  He interested me enough to join the Historic Vineyard Society, ...

  • 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...

    Snoothrank:

    Epicurean Wines is a reliable importer from Seattle, bringing over a wide variety of interesting and popularly priced wines. This "second label" offering from young Australian winemaker, Ben Glaetzer, is true to his stylistic bent: hedonistic, jammy, higher alcohol and relatively high residual sugar "fruit bombs" that are seductive and lush on...

    Wine review by ttocsffej


  • I just finished reading 10 pages of very interesting, insightful and articulate posts about the perceived demise of California Cabernet Sauvignon. There was a lot of data contributing to the perception that California is in the middle of a high alcohol "fruit bomb" era.I'm not going to pretend to be Robert Parker Jr., James Laube or even several...

  • OK you just get back from the Wine store with a bottle of a new Chardonnay.  You crank the cork and pour yourself a glass and are instantly disappointed ! What to do? Go to the cupboard and get the Wine Adjustment Kit you got on your last birthday.  You open the powder packets and add a touch of Apricot, Lemon and Pineapple with your gram spoon.... Read More

  • *If you have zero interest in reading about a Brooklyn Wine Shop then feel free to dismiss the thread. I figured that there would be enough NYers and/or transients on the board to make this a worthwhile post.I’m the last guy to champion my local retailers. Why, you ask? Because they stink…well, that’s not fair- they’re dirty and unimaginative an... Read More

  • So we're all here and we see that many of us got bitten by the sweet white wine bug, only to move on? My wine life begn  ightIalandne, ent through almost everything else, ends with medium to light Italian red wines, only to start the circuit again, yes my tastes change, evolve and vary! So where did you start, where are you, where do you want to...

  • Not, I repeat not, a thread about whether the 2009 Bordeaux is great, but more about whether you trust the reviews. After the 2009 en primeur week, the opinion is unsurprisingly about a brilliant "vintage of the decade". I think this is the 3rd in the last 10 years n'est-ce-pas? So do we need to review how we review the en primeur? Do you trust ... Read More
