  • Read up on Lindeman's thread, and thought this would be a good topic to discuss.To Greg's point about blending Merlot and sometimes Cabernet in with Chianti blends, I hear that trend had been on the downswing, which is probably a good thing for Chianti proper, though there will be some really good "Super Tuscan's" made from the blending as well....

Both casual and fine dining are the cornerstones of entertainment for millions of Americans. Meanwhile, celebrity chefs inspire new generations of home cooks to think outside the box.

But the wines they produce are notably different.Valpolic... Read More

  • As you can guess, the London Wine Trade calendar is choc-a-block with tastings. If you went to them all you wouldn’t have time to work! So, selection is the name of the game.
