Gary Vaynerchuk on South Africa's Pinotage...

Date: Sun, Dec 7, 2008 Wine Tasting

I wandered upon this podcast of Gary Vaynerchuk and couldn't help but be entertained. I suppose I've lived a deprived life until now, having managed to reach the age of 48 without actually seeing any of Gary's previous 589 wine podcasts.

Gary has a unique style and his animated stage presences makes me wonder if he's had a Starbucks expresso doppio (or two) before the cameras start rolling.

This particular podcast is a look at Pinotage - the South Africa cross between Pinot noir and Cinsaut. It is widely regarded as South Africa's signature wine.

Enjoy the podcast. See full article.

NY Wine Lovers Taste 2008 Beaujolais Nouveau

Date: Mon, Nov 24, 2008 Wine Tasting

French vintner are hoping that this years offering of Beaujolais nouveau will raise spirits during the hard financial times facing much of the world, according to the Associated Press. The vintage is traditionally released on third Thursday of November.

Beaujolais nouveau is a red wine made from Gamay grapes produced in the Beaujolais region of France. Production methods leave little tannin in the wine. It is a light, fruity wine best served slightly chilled. Critics generally hate it, but the French public (and many New Yorkers) love it...

Learning about Gigondas

Date: Tue, Oct 14, 2008 Wine Tasting

The French wine appellation of Gigondas tends to get overshadowed by its flashy and better-known cousin, Chateauneuf du Pape. However, the smooth red wines of this Rhone Valley region have a charm and complexity all of their own. Like Chateauneuf, they are made with primarily Grenache grapes, but the similarity ends there as James Molesworth of "Wine Spectator" magazine illustrates in the video below:

Drink Local Wine


Celebrate Wine is pleased to be a part of a new wine-writing project called "Drink Local Wine." The site brings together wine journalists, sommeliers, bloggers, and other wine enthusiasts from 16 "non-west coast" states and Canada. The goal is to enforce the reality that North American wine is not just about California, Oregon, and Washington anymore.

At "Drink Local Wine," you'll find information about wines from Illinois, Maryland, Georgia, and Wisconsin...and, of course, my home state, Ohio. Be sure to take a look.
