  • Wowzer,Just tasted my first Viognier and what a delight. I purchased one that was extremely economical but one with respectability in it's ratings. I didn't want to go overboard on my first venture with a newbie.This one averaged 3 and a half out of 5 here at Snooth.

  • Hi, I am an accidental wine enthusiast. As part of a major remodeling project including our family room I revived my interest and enjoyment of wine. Our family room was redone using dark hickory planking and the room has a short wall next to our fireplace. This wall has always presented a challenge to make use of the space. I researched and sear... Read More

  • Getting your hands on a wine this old is tough, but those Martinis were, before Mondavi, one of the big 4.  (Along with Beaulieu, Charles Krug, and Inglenook).  Places to look are reputable resellers who buy cellars from collectors.  Good sources include BPWines, Benchmark Wine Group, Hart Davis Hart, Rare Wine Company, Chambers Street and K&L, ...
