"Oxygen is the enemy of wine," says Jeff Auman, who, along with his wife Terri, owns The Wine Cellar, the largest privately owned wine shop in Virginia. When you store bottles upright -- like they do in the "big box" stores -- the corks can dry out. That lets air in. The wine can become unstable. You probably won't enjoy it very much. And enjoyment is what it's all about for Jeff. Because he really wants you to enjoy your wine, he'll help you choose just the right wine for your taste, your budget, and the occasion. Jeff relies most on his extensive knowledge of his stock -- "I have a photographic memory when it comes to wine," he says -- but he also keeps notes on his "regular" customers, tracking what they buy and what they like. As a result, customers become "like family," Jeff says. There's never any pressure to buy -- but it's hard to resist such a thoughtful selection of fine wines! In a rut? Stop by The Wine Cellar for complimentary Friday-evening wine tastings from 5:pm - 8:pm. Read more »

  • Kind if a strange story there. As David mentioned alc levels have been higher for the past couple decades as wineries found that the average American palate loves the texture  and flavors that come from riper fruit. People using reverse osmosis to lower alc levels seem, to me anyway, to be those not paying attention to the winemaking process and... Read More

  • Sometimes we get used to paying upwards of $100 for a nice bottle of wine from the wine shop.  Those are the 'good days' that we want to remember, but soon you notice your bank account is dropping faster than Trumps approval rating, so you start looking for more value-oriented wines that are tasty in their own right.This topic is all about value...

  • Thanks RC.  We're still recovering from all that wine.  The food was gone fairly quickly, so it's a good thing we had reservations at that restaurant following the event to get nourishment prior to taking the Metro back to our car in Crystal City (Arlington, VA).  We met several couples during the event; one couple lives in Delaware and they hav...

  • 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 ...
