  • Last weekend was really special.  My sister Carol and her husband Rich were out here from Corvallis, Oregon to stay with us for 4 days - that's the driving force that pushed me to paint a guest room, our master bathroom and then a remodeled guest bathroom (which was finished just one day prior to their arrival on 16 October).  We did a bunch of ...

  • Proudly the most expensive wine in Virginia.  I'd voice my disdain for that sort of proclamation.  They need that kind of feedback.  There is an iconic BC blend from Mission Hill called "Oculus" that was $60-70 for the past six or seven years.  Suddenly, it's $100, because they want to expand the mid-range $50 blends.  I won't pay $100...ever, u...

  • Kluge Estate New World Red 2002


    It's difficult for me to find words that describe just how much I disagree with the idea that the 2002 Kluge red, if it even still exists, is anywhere near what's being produced in Virginia ALONE... LET alone what's being produced in California.DO NOT, and I plead with you to not throw this wine up as an example of World Class Virginia reds wine... Read More

    Wine review by ChipDWood

  • Not just according to me, but according to those who would actually know such things for their very meal tickets depend upon such knowledge.Everything's in place to challenge the '07 vintage in the red catergory as the weather's been dry in the right spots, a bit damp only when needed most.More in a bit.  A lot of people rather pumped down here,...
