WBW80: Dry Rosé

Date: Wed, Aug 14, 2013 Wine Tasting Wine Business

Back when I first started podcasting about wine, in late 2004, there were maybe 40 podcasts in the world. But there were even fewer wine blogs and soon I discovered the monthly tasting event called Wine Blogging Wednesday joining on its eighth outing back in early 2005. Over the years I have participated in WBW […]

Announcing Wine Blogging Wednesday 80, Dry Rosé

Date: Wed, Jul 17, 2013 Wine Tasting Wine Business

Back in the the first year of wine blogging (2004 for those just joining us) Lenn Thompson of LENNDEVOURS (now New York Cork Report) made a modest proposal and Wine Blogging Wednesday (WBW) was born.

“Chance has a great deal to do with the awards that wines win.”

Date: Mon, Jun 24, 2013 Wine Tasting Wine Business

The results here are not that surprising to me given the venue. At a state fair the conditions are far from ideal and the judges have to taste too many wines in a short period of time. I have always believed a wine should be tasted over a period of time (1-2 days minimum) and [...]

Date: Wed, Jun 19, 2013 Wine Tasting Wine Business

What Makes A Wine “Authentic”?

Date: Tue, Jun 18, 2013 Wine Tasting Wine Business

As is often the case, Steve Heimoff has posted a “think piece” on his blog today. And judging by the relatively few comments at the time I write this most readers are just doing that; thinking. His post is on authenticity in wine and how difficult and subjective it is to define. In the end, [...]

The Perils of Posting On April Fools’ Day

Date: Fri, Apr 5, 2013 Wine Tasting Wine Business

Back in the day, I participated in April Fools pranks with posts that hopefully brought a smile to the face of the reader. But after one such post fell flat, even garnering angry comments years later, I decided to hang it up. Face it, wine is not that funny to begin with and most wine [...]

Wine In The ‘Shark Tank’

Date: Mon, Aug 13, 2012 Wine Tasting Wine Business

Reality TV is all the rage these days but I rarely watch this genre outside of a few cooking competition shows like Top Chef or Masterchef. But I have been hooked this year by ABC’s ‘Shark Tank’. The show’s premise is simple; entrepreneurs pitch their products to a panel of well known investors (‘sharks’) such [...]

China pivots to Burgundy. Source: Theatlantic Via: The Atlantic Thankfully, the wine market’s sour turn could also just be a sign of changing tastes. Eighty-six of the 100 bottles Liv-ex tracks are Bordeaux, the traditional king of fine wine. But as the Financial Times wrote in May, recent auctions suggest that Hong Kong buyers, perhaps [...]
