Someone Whose Work You Should Be Following

Date: Tue, Feb 24, 2009 Winery Blogs Wine Business

Yesterday I had the pleasure of helping to teach a class at Sonoma State with Tina Caputo, E.I.C. of Vineyard and Winery Management, Robert Larsen, Head PR Dude at Rodney Strong and Dr. David Horowitz of Sonoma State. The first two need no introduction to folks in the wine world. Prior to her position at V&WM, [...]

The Shirt Invades China

Date: Mon, Feb 23, 2009 Winery Blogs Wine Business

Just got this great pic in my inbox from Ken. The shirt has officially invaded red China! Awesome. Ken says that it was so cold there that when he disrobed and stripped down to the shirt for the pic, onlookers found the whole scene so laughable that they started taking pictures of him. Standing there. Freezing. I can [...]

Juicified

Date: Thu, Feb 19, 2009 Winery Blogs Wine Business

Note: Two posts in two days. Amazing, I know. As promised in the previous post, here’s a little bit more info on Juice, the wine database that I’m working on. The video below shows 2 screens from Juice, one that downloads and displays CIMIS weather station data, and the second which shows an iPhone sync with Brix [...]

So Juicy

Date: Wed, Feb 18, 2009 Winery Blogs Wine Business

Note: Thanks to everyone who emailed. Yes I have been gone a long time. Yes, I’m still alive and kicking. Check out what I’ve been up to below. So the past month and a half I’ve immersed myself in developing a tool that didn’t exist yet. It’s weird, I’ve never done something quite so ambitious before [...]

How To Build and Plant a Vegetable Garden

Date: Wed, Jan 7, 2009 Winery Blogs Wine Business

We’re all looking at ways to pinch pennies these days. With the economy in the toilet and its fetid bottom likely yet to be fully exposed, it’s nice to know there is at least one sure fire way to save cash and see a good return on investment (ROI): Plant a Vegetable Garden. What, you think [...]

Tasting ‘05 Bordeaux with Robert Parker, Pt. 1

Date: Mon, Oct 27, 2008 Winery Blogs Wine Business

“The Greatest Vintage.” That was the headline for the 2005 Bordeaux tasting this past Thursday at the CIA in St. Helena with Robert Parker. The event also marked 30 years for Parker as a professional wine critic, and I suppose because of this he was a little introspective. It’s fairly well established that Parker’s influence is [...]

Bench Grafts: What I’m Up To

Date: Wed, Oct 22, 2008 Winery Blogs Wine Business

Just a quick post to outline some fun things that have happened recently and that will happen soon: Arthur over at Wine Sooth has posted an exhaustive three part series on wild wine yeasts dubbed “Yeasts Gone Wild.” He even has a scandalous pic of a naked(!) yeast with its asexual organs partially exposed! It’s also [...]

Hanna Alcohol Meter Review

Date: Tue, Sep 23, 2008 Winery Blogs Wine Business

This past month Hanna introduced a new alcohol meter as part of its Wine Line of instruments. I’m a fan of their products and have more than a few in my lab. The less expensive glass labware for me to break, the better. This one is especially cool though, as it simplifies and speeds up the [...]

My 2008 Pinot Recipe

Date: Wed, Sep 17, 2008 Winery Blogs Wine Business

If last year was Darth Vader - all about extraction, enzymes, neutral oak chips and depth of color - this year is more zen Yoda. I basically said to the yeast: “do or do not, there is no try”. In short, ‘08 is all about the old wine cliche “let the wine make itself”. The wine [...]

Blogs and Journalism

Date: Thu, Sep 11, 2008 Winery Blogs Wine Business

Recently I added my name to a mailing list consisting of journalists on deadline looking for “experts” (ahem) for quotes for their stories. It was pitched to me as a way to “build your personal brand” and “cement your place as an authority in your area”. All well and good. I definitely like building my/our [...]

The Wine Spectator Award Kerfuffle

Date: Thu, Aug 21, 2008 Winery Blogs Wine Business

Really? This is what we get worked up about, puffing up in self-righteous indignation? Is this the best we can do? So the Wine Spectator got fooled. It’s kinda funny, and it may even be just a little bit telling. What it isn’t is evidence of any kind of graft or misrepresentation on their part. They’ve [...]
