Bordeaux For The Tomato-Pie Eating 99 Percent (Inside Chateau Féret-Lambert)

Date: Thu, Nov 29, 2012 Wine Tasting Winery Blogs Wine Business

When most people hear the name of a French Chateau, they conjure up in their mind’s eye a scenario that probably looks a lot like what Féret-Lambert is like in real life: green hills punctuated by vineyards bulging with ripe, juicy Merlot grapes; a large, picturesque house dating from the 1700s, located a stone’s throw [...]

What You Need To Know About Sulfites In Wine (Molly Dooker Shake Edition)

Date: Thu, Sep 23, 2010 Wine Tasting Winery Blogs Wine Business

I recently received a shipment of wine samples from the critics’ darling Molly Dooker, which came with a handy set of instructions on how to perform the now-famous “Molly Dooker Shake.”  The Molly Dooker shake is the arguably inelegant but certainly effective way to release the nitrogen that is used is bottling several of the [...]

Alive And Kicking: Has NY Wine Come Of Age?

Date: Wed, Sep 22, 2010 Wine Tasting Winery Blogs Wine Business

Ten years ago, on a trip with friends to New York’s Finger Lakes wine country, I bought a few bottles of bubbly. I was not a pseudo-wine-pro back then; I was an avid consumer (that term still applies!), and the majority of my vacation travel was centered around wine exploration.  I had a budding interest, [...]

Les Badges de la Semaine (Lively & Rockin’ Edition)

Date: Fri, Sep 17, 2010 Wine Tasting Winery Blogs Wine Business

A short-and-sweet little ditty for a couple of badge-worthy wine recommendations this week.  I also want to thank everyone who has contacted me through various channels with their positive vibes for the badges; so far I’m enjoying using them so they’ll be sticking around: 2008 Three Rivers Winery Insania Red (Columbia Valley): A bit hot [...]

The Role of a Wine Blogger Post WBC10

Date: Thu, Sep 16, 2010 Wine Tasting Winery Blogs Wine Business

An alternative title for this article might be “Sorry, But I Gotta Be Me” or “The 2010 Wine Blog Awards Messed With My Head.” One thing that I know about good, compelling blogging (because that’s the stuff that I like to read) is that you can’t be afraid to bare all and let readers inside [...]

Wine Review Triple-Play (From Opener to Aerator to Glass)

Date: Wed, Sep 15, 2010 Wine Tasting Winery Blogs Wine Business

Because I’m perpetually behind in all aspects of my life, I now find myself spending time that I don’t have perusing productivity websites looking for ways to get time “back.” So far, I’m (at best) breaking even in terms of getting back the time I spend perusing productivity websites.

Wine Revolution Calling: Queensryche’s Geoff Tate Talks Insania

Date: Mon, Sep 13, 2010 Wine Tasting Winery Blogs Wine Business

To put it mildly, today’s interviewee guest is a bona fide bad-ass rock star. Oh, yeah – he happens to know his wine, as well.
