Stay home for Valentine’s Day!

Date: Sat, Feb 13, 2010 Wine Tasting Winery Blogs Wine Business

I have my way, it will be the last time that I ever set foot into a restaurant on Valentine's Day. It is a day when the lure of a huge payday entices restaurateurs and chefs, who have spent years building a following and reputation, to over-book and under-deliver.

Why I don’t like anything

Date: Tue, Jan 26, 2010 Wine Tasting Winery Blogs Wine Business

Many years ago my mother wanted to see Bob Seger when he was in town. While I liked his old stuff, I had never been much of a fan of anything from about Night Moves on. But mom wanted to go, and one of my friends wanted to see him too, so we all got [...]

Who Dat?!?

Date: Sun, Jan 24, 2010 Wine Tasting Winery Blogs Wine Business

Our visit to New Orleans last month as part of Harrah's Greatest Weekend Ever was met with such hospitality and warmth that we feel like extended family. We cannot think of a city that deserves a trip to the Super Bowl more!

Wines rated 90 and above by Robert M. Parker, Jr., Stephen Tanzer’s International Wine Cellar, Wine Enthusiast and Wine Spectator's Top 100 didn't earn a medal. Wines rated much lower by the aforementioned sources were judged much higher by our competition judges. Serving temperature may have been a factor.

Be a Home Superstar Chef (Part 8 – Garlic)

Date: Sun, Jan 10, 2010 Wine Tasting Winery Blogs Wine Business

Garlic may seem ubiquitous and ordinary, after all it seems to be a staple in the cuisine of almost every culture, but knowing more about it can really elevate your cooking to new heights. On the other hand, mistreatment of this wondrous knob of deliciousness can ruin an otherwise fantastic dish. If you are serious about cooking great food, then garlic needs to be one of your best friends.

Leftover Wine Bottles on the Counter? Recyle; Reduce!

Date: Fri, Jan 8, 2010 Wine Tasting Winery Blogs Wine Business

Our counters were cluttered. We had accumulated a number of bottles half-filled with wine that we either didn't drink because we didn't care for them, or we had wine left over from an event where there were too many wines to consume in one evening. So, what do you do with all that wine? Make a wine reduction! It's pretty simple but takes a bit of time and attention, but here's how you do it.

Weinrieder 2006 Grüner Veltliner Alte Reben

Date: Sun, Jan 3, 2010 Wine Tasting Winery Blogs Wine Business

Grüner Veltliner is not one of the most well known wine grapes on the planet. Wines made from this grape tend to have a spicy nose of white pepper, floral perfume, and either peach or tropical fruit. The Weinrieder 2006 Grüner Veltliner Alte Reben is an excellent example of just how good this wine can be.

Bonny Doon Vineyard Le Cigare Volante 2005

Date: Wed, Dec 23, 2009 Wine Tasting Winery Blogs Wine Business

Some things can only be experienced, and no matter how eloquently or accurately they are described, words really fall short. I think all great wines are like that. The best that a wine reviewer can strive for is to get just enough right so that the reader is tantalized enough to seek out the experience [...]

Great Finds in Grocery Store Wine

Date: Sun, Dec 20, 2009 Wine Tasting Winery Blogs Wine Business

Amazing. You can put your name on a list for wine or beer that sells out in 10 minutes. Now that's customer service. The kind you might expect at a small store in the older neighborhoods of a big city or a small town. Or if you're an important customer at the big wine retailer.
