Can Terroir Be Bootstrapped? (Dude’s Take On Ventura County For Palate Press)

Date: Tue, Mar 11, 2014 Wine Tasting Winery Blogs Wine Business

“Stay out of Malibu, deadbeat!!!” As a stunning display just how behind I am on everything, my take on the upstart, bootstrapping wineries of Southern California’s Ventura County was recently published over at PalatePress.com. Yeah, that’s the one I talked about back in January when we featured the recent releases of Ventura’s Four Brix Winery […]

So, like, what is this stuff, anyway? I taste a bunch-o-wine (technical term for more than most people). So each week, I share some of my wine reviews (mostly from samples) and tasting notes with you via twitter (limited to 140 characters).

“Best Of The Best” From Premiere Napa Valley 2014

Date: Thu, Mar 6, 2014 Wine Tasting Winery Blogs Wine Business

By now, many of you will have heard that 2014’s incarnation of Premiere Napa Valley, the annual Napa Valley Vintners fundraiser auction, broke records and brought in a haul to NVV that I think is best described as a sh*t-ton of money, times three (I had dinner with a couple of nice folks from NVV […]

Wine Competition Myths Busted (California State Fair 2013 Commercial Wine Competition Results)

Date: Thu, Jul 4, 2013 Wine Tasting Winery Blogs Wine Business

As of last week, the results of the 2013 California State Fair Commercial Wine Competition have been fully revealed, and July 4th seemed an auspicious time to recap the (all American) Best of Show winners from the comp. (itself a bit of an American institution, having been established in the 1800s), and share my thoughts [...]

Uncovering Pennsylvania Wine For Palate Press (And Thoughts On PA’s Liquor Privatization)

Date: Wed, Jul 3, 2013 Wine Tasting Winery Blogs Wine Business

A quick hit today to let you know that my take on the state of Pennsylvania wine (yes, we do make wine here in the land of scrapple) is now published over at PalatePress.com. If you’re curious as to why and how an apparently paradoxical wine market can exist in which small producers struggle both [...]

What The New Generation Wants From A Wine (A View From The Argentina Wine Awards Global Seminar)

Date: Thu, Apr 18, 2013 Wine Tasting Winery Blogs Wine Business

One of the interesting things to which the Wines of Argentina folks subject you as a judge in the Argentina Wine Awards (aside from tasting enough tannic Malbecs in one blind awards flight that you can no longer feel your gums, or taking you horse-wrangling in the Andes) is a seminar in which you’re one [...]

Meet Answers.com’s New Wine Dude (Or, “Why I’ve Been Out Doing Shizz and Busting My Ass!”)

Date: Wed, Apr 17, 2013 Wine Tasting Winery Blogs Wine Business

One of the reasons that I’ve been scaling back a bit here on 1WD (less than I’d like to, actually… because I just can’t help myself… curse you, beguiling wines, CURSE YOU!!!) is that I’ve got more paying gigs competing for my time. Which sounds great superficially, but quickly turns into an oh-crap-I’ve-got-a-term-paper-due-this-week! feeling for [...]
