  • Good to have you chime in EMark!  Not boring in the least.  I'd say negative tasting experiences are rare.  My old boss told me one when he and his wife had visited many wineries in Osoyoos one afternoon and it was getting late (for business hours).  They went in their last one and the woman acted annoyed and basically reluctantly gave them one ...

  • Blaufränkisch is a Cabernet lover’s best friend, but still very much its own grape. And that's an asset in today’s wine climate. Generations of wine drinkers stuck to the same old grapes - but this is an era that privileges discovery. Blaufränkisch is not new, per say, but an increasing number of Americans are gulping it down by the bottle. Plan... Read More

  • Well Greg, you and I are the same (re: your last paragraph).Generally, that was a depressing piece of typing.  I certainly can see truth in the premise, which is basically young people are totally unlike us.  I can't help disagreeing though about the future of wine sales on the whole.  Detroit would not be my first choice as trendsetter in wine ...

  • No wine isn't going away, but DV - you associate with a rare and sophisticated group of people. Most of us are just poor proles who hang out at the local shot-and-a-beer joint, and for us, wine is either red or white and not much beyond.It is true that wine sales are fine, but his point was that on a daily basis, he sees who is buying what and h...

  • So on a whim we decided to visit British Columbia. But we flew up to Washington, so visited a few places there too. Totally off the subject of wine, I found an awesome bakery in Spokane and the girl there served me this thing that I thought was a kind of Parmesan cheese foam. In fact it was fermented cashew whip, which was definitely weird, but ... Read More

  • Some twenty five years ago, during an informal dinner in a local tavern (tasca in Spanish) in Jerez de la Frontera, my host summoned the owner, “Paco, bring us some of your special Pedro Ximénez”. Paco came over with a dust-covered bottle half full of a dark, dense liquid. He served each of us a carefully measured amount, about one half inch. Ve... Read More

  • JD, a word of advice, if you love it (like I do), don't put off travelling.  As a cruise ship director once told us, Cover the Earth before the Earth cover you.  I know, easier said than done but if you can - go for it.DV, we've been in your neck of the woods only twice. The most recent was at the end of an Alaskan cruise, wish we would have add... Read More

  • I don't see why some kind of meeting can't be arranged (re: above messages) at least at some point during the year.  We are in the midst of our annual cold snap just now, but things should ease up shortly.  While my wife is working at least until June (she is considering early retirement), I am more or less free - except for tax return season an...

  • That Summerhill is an excellent example of Ehrenfelser - if memory serves, it is just a touch off-dry... like most from that grape-crossing. During the 1980's and early 1990's there was not that much good Riesling around in BC (Gehringer Bros. being a somewhat rare exception at the time), but there was Ehrenfelser - a  left-over from an assessme...
