  • As I mentioned when I introduced myself as part of Snooth's Mentor Program, I'm a wine educator. I teach wine at a culinary school, and I instruct classes at local shops around my area in the Triangle in North Carolina. It keeps me on my toes, for sure - no matter how many times I've taught a concept or tasted a wine, something new comes up. Mos... Read More

  • So, when we found out we would not be sending our older daughter to private school, we decided to celebrate by taking a long trip to Europe this summer.  Our flights put us in Amsterdam June 29 to July 1 or so, then we land in Rome.  We depart from Paris July 19 or so.  The rest is left to be filled in.  It'll be my first trip back since '88 (ou...

  • A big hello from the Loire valley in France. I'm an English wine trade professional who moved here to live in 2006. Based between Angers and Saumur, I'd be happy to hear from anyone who has questions about the Loire or has tasted something special they think I should know about. Look forward to hearing from you.

  • We are thrilled to have a first hand report on the 2008 German vintage from our friend Justin Christoph. Justin's report on the Wet auctions, where the greatest German wines go for princely sums, gives us a great view into the inner working of the German auction market, as well as a sneak peak at the style and quality of the vintage, and so much...

  • Volpaia: it takes a village, no seriously. The Castello di Volpaia estate is one of the most remarkable wineries I have ever visited. Now, granted I was there in the off-season, but driving up the rather winding road to the hilltop enclave, it’s really not much more than a ring of buildings protecting the inner Castello, can leave you a little p...

  • Over the past decade the UK has been developing a reputation for its sparkling wines. Over here in the US, people tend to snort at the thought of British wine, at first, but then after considering the relative latitudes and the weather to that of Champagne start to see its potential.
