Buoncristiani Family Winery - It’s all in the Family

Date: Fri, Apr 3, 2009 Wine Tasting Winery Blogs Wine Business

For the four Buoncristiani brothers, winemaking is a family affair. The Buoncristiani patriarch, Robert,  made wine in the family garage and paid Matt, Jay, Aaron and Nate an allowance to pick and stomp the grapes. Seemingly inauspicious beginnings for four brothers who have been dubbed the “Rising Stars of Napa Cabernet” by Wine Spectator. The Buoncristiani [...] Related posts:

So you think your Rabbit corkscrew is special?

Date: Fri, Mar 13, 2009 Wine Tasting Winery Blogs Wine Business

I did too. Until today. My coworker showed me a video of the most intricate and mechanically intensive bottle opener (and pouring device) ever created. The internet has dubbed this concoction-pouring contraption as “The Corkscrew Designed by Rob Higgs.” Yes, the name is not very creative or marketable, but only 100 were made, and I [...] Related posts:

Wine Label Eye Candy

Date: Thu, Mar 12, 2009 Wine Tasting Winery Blogs Wine Business

Most of my posts contain a lot of words. This one will not. Pictures of clever, cool, or otherwise inspiring wine label designs: Very elegant design. I especially like how the brown letters surrounding the tap-root serve a dual purpose: textually informative, and visually fitting - from a distance, the words look like soil. Especially with the [...] Related posts:

‘Open That Bottle Night’ In Action

Date: Wed, Mar 4, 2009 Wine Tasting Winery Blogs Wine Business

We all have one or two really special bottles in the cellar – you know, the bottle of Cabernet you were given for your wedding, that bottle of Merlot with the gorgeous artwork on the label, or that pricey little Old Vine number you picked up in Napa a few years back. These are bottles [...] Related posts:

7 in 7 - Seven Questions for Winemaker Ryan Waugh

Date: Thu, Feb 26, 2009 Wine Tasting Winery Blogs Wine Business

The first time I tasted the Waugh Cellars Zinfandel, I knew there was something special about what winemaker Ryan Waugh was doing. At the ripe young age of 30, Ryan Waugh already has 6 vintages behind him and is one of the youngest winemakers in the Napa area, yet his wines taste like those [...] Related posts:

Blind Tasting: Arbios and Praxis Cellars

Date: Thu, Feb 26, 2009 Wine Tasting Winery Blogs Wine Business

In the world of Hollywood, there are few actors who can deliver Oscar-nominated performances in serious roles, then turn around and star in a hilarious, crowd-pleasing comedy in the blink of an eye – John C. Reilly, Christopher Walken, Robert DiNero. In the world of winemaking, there are a few winemakers who can produce serious, [...] Related posts:

Is this your cellar? Open that bottle! Those of you who have followed this blog for a while know that I have a hard time moving through my prized inventory of American wines.

Wine Growlers: Winery Using Refillable Bottles

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

Last Friday, I refilled a growler with a tasty porter from the local brewery here in Walla Walla. Although your typical Coors-drinking population is not into this practice, refillable containers are becoming increasingly popular in the beer industry. Yet the wine industry is far behind in reusing it’s glass, or at least allowing it to [...] Related posts:

We love to be green here at AmericanWinery.com, and encourage the same in our winery partners and customers, so when I stumbled across this cool discovery we simply HAD to share it with you. These super-special glass vases are actually the second life of a wine bottle courtesy of Revive. The die-cutting and sandblasting give each [...] Related posts:
