  • This Topic is partially intended to start a new thread on daily wine drinking as the earlier topics are just too long and too general.  How about telling us more about your choices and helping me start a new thread for the next generation, so to speak?  The "why" is the interesting part for some of us - but pictures are always welcome; after all...

  • Some Burgundy winemakers pull their noses up at Beaujolais but, like it or not, these hilly picturesque vineyards just up the road from Macon are an integral part of the illustrious Burgundy region of central France. Why do some pooh-pooh their neighbour? It has a lot to do with grape varieties; Burgundy’s red is the classic Pinot Noir whilst Be... Read More

  • You can buy 2015 California Cabernet if you look around, I'm sure.  Heck, maybe even 2016.  But the Italians make you wait a little longer--five years for Brunello, and four, more or less, for Barolo.  So that means the 2013 Barolos are starting to hit the market, and it's a highly anticipated vintage.  2014 suffered from hail, so it's going to ...

    What a gem! Finally I found a French burgundy under $15 that should be $100 a bottle or more. what a smooth, fruity ( but not overwhelming) clean and boisterous wine. I'm racing back to get the other bottles off the bargain rack and into my cellar. Read More

  • Unless you bought them with aging potential in mind, a fair few of your 2013 pink and white wines won’t be drinkable by next spring. Guzzle down the last of those quick-to-turn bottles, cellar a few others, and ready yourself for the onset of fall wines. Even if you do not live in a starkly transitional climate, this a great time to think about ... Read More

  • Montalcino is a beautiful medieval hilltop village just 40 miles south of Siena, on the ancient roadway to Rome. It is dominated by a castle, called La Fortezza, which doubles as an enoteca and wine shop. La Fortezza offers most of the wines of the zone, plus older vintages, as well as honey, olive oil, jams and the like. It also offers a breath... Read More

  • Al if it's true that you have 400 some bottles and you've only been really interested in wine for like three years, I would advise you to quit all of those wine clubs. Seriously. You may not even know what you like yet - there are thousands of wines in the world and you may find that you're stuck with a lot of wine that you wish you didn't have.... Read More

  • Due to popular demand (don't ask where that demand came from or you'll spoil my fun), we appear to need some new wine discussion topics.  This topic was only relevant to Thursday as a test case but was subsequently expanded to cover the weekend too.  What ever you bring up in this topic should either occur on a Thursday - Sunday, or it could be ...
