  • I think that's true. There's a lot of new money getting into the wine business - sports stars, movie people, etc., and they need to buy land, hire expensive consultants, buy expensive grapes, and then they can talk about their wine, as if they made it. The people who bought in the 1960s and 1970s, or who come from long-standing families, they ca... Read More

  • I have been thinking for a while on the idea of facilitating the meeting up in person of those loyally frequenting this site.My preference is to make these meetings open to all members, and even varying the location of any meeting according to convenience since we live all over the world (though mostly in North America).In any case, this new thr...

  • I like what I'm told is referred to a "jammy" wine. One example is Altmura. I know it's not sweet however to me it has somewhat of a sweet taste. Any recommendations of some wine to try?   Read More

  • In the East Bay, esp my neck of the woods (North Oakland/Berkeley), it's an embarrassment of riches in this as in so many other things.  Andronico's, a formerly swanky market, is all but gone, and AG Ferrari is closing up its last shop after years of sinking into dismal faux Italian market-hood. But others have taken their place, albeit not in e... Read More

  • OK, what's your favorite market in your area for buying good meats, dairy, produce, etc. when you want to prepare a proper meal, likely accompanied by wine? Or just for everyday living? And what do they provide that you value so?Last couple of times I was through San Fran I realized Bi-Rite in the Mission would be mine there. Very much appreciat... Read More

  • Hi, I'm the "some blogger" mentioned above. For what it's worth, most wineries at some time or other have inventory they can't move quickly enough for a variety of reasons, and the most sensible business decision in such cases is to move it quickly at a steep discount, even if that means zero profit or even a loss. Grocery Outlet buys a lot of t... Read More

  • Alto-Cinco Garnacha 2012

    Snoothrank:

    The bottle I tried had no smell and no flavor! Ok, to be fair it had a slight taste of alcohol. Maybe it was not stored well? My first time trying Garanacha variety. It is now the beginning of 2017. Is it possible this wine did not hold up over the years? Is that why it is being sold at Grocery Outlet? Did they liquidate it for a reason? Read More

    Wine review by Coffee


  • Hello all,I'm not actually a beginner in wine preparation. I started preparing wine 3 months ago. I've tasted different varieties of wine and my favorite is Merlot wine. I had a doubt earlier on how to store the prepared wine. I searched many sources and asked many friends and  I happened to read an article yesterday which had tips to properly s... Read More

  • Being aware of price points for most of the other varietals I have always wondered why the Pinot Noirs are always priced way ahead of the other varietals.It is almost impossible to purchase a Pinot Noir at the same price point/quality as a Cabernet Sauvignon for under $20Now I live in a region where both Cabernet Sauvignon (Washington State) and...

  • Since dailies aren't usually wines that I store long term--good early drinkers like Barbera, Dolcetto, simpler Chiantis, roses, and whites--they don't actually take much storage space, and rarely in the basement.  They aren't going to go bad if the house gets up to 78-80 for a couple days (which is how long it takes to break a "heat wave" with t...
