Step Forward For Big Brother, Step Backward For PA Wine Lovers

Date: Thu, Aug 19, 2010 Wine Tasting Winery Blogs Wine Business

Last week, the excellent (and hilarious) Tom Johnson published an article titled “Pennsylvania, Cradle of Liberty” in which he highlighted a Pittsburgh Post-Gazette article about the expansion of PA’s wine kiosk device. Besides Tom’s normally laugh-out-loud funny and on-point commentary, the post is worth a read (and a click-through to the article) if only for [...]

Date: Wed, Aug 18, 2010 Wine Tasting Winery Blogs Wine Business

To Everything (Turn, Turn, Turn) There is a season (Turn, Turn, Turn) And a time to every purpose, under Heaven - The Byrds Let’s play a little game of word association.  I say “Carneros” and you say… ___________. Budding wine geeks and geekettes out there would likely answer “Pinot Noir” or “Chardonnay” or “Sparklers” or [...]

Lost Grapes Get Found: Forgotten Grapes VA Tasting Event – August 18

Date: Mon, Aug 16, 2010 Wine Tasting Winery Blogs Wine Business

“Doing for Forgotten Grapes what Dancing With the Stars does for forgotten celebrities.” Thus reads the tag line of Chris Kern’s website ForgottenGrapes.com, the purpose of which should hopefully at this point be glaringly obvious to you. You’ve got to like a tag line like that. Chris contacted me to invite me to one of [...]

Date: Sat, Aug 14, 2010 Wine Tasting Winery Blogs Wine Business

09 El Coto de Rioja Blanco (Rioja): Short on balance, but plenty long on herbs, flowers and tart citrus for the price. $9 B- # 08 Torbreck Woodcutter’s Shiraz (Barossa): Hot vintage births a hot wine. Still, it’s a great opp. to sample those 100+ yr old vines. $22 B # 08 Tres Sabores Farina [...]

Drinking (and Eating) in South Jersey: Amalthea and Winemaking’s “Third Wave”

Date: Thu, Aug 12, 2010 Wine Tasting Winery Blogs Wine Business

If you take a map of the Bordeaux winemaking region and flip it upside down, it becomes a (more-or-less) mirror-image of the Delaware Bay area that houses the New Jersey’s Outer Coastal Plain (OCP) AVA. Yes, that would be South Jersey. Yes, they make wine there. Better wine than you might at first imagine, actually. [...]

Tattoo You: Hate Points? Get Some Body Art!

Date: Tue, Aug 10, 2010 Wine Tasting Winery Blogs Wine Business

I don’t normally read press releases that are e-mailed to me (usually they are destined for the Delete key), but this one hit my (perpetually overflowing, groaning from the strain and taxed beyond all logical, sane measure) Inbox last night and it caught my eye for reasons that will appear obvious in just a minute.

Crouching Price, Hidden Ridge: When Lowering a Wine’s Price Can Work

Date: Mon, Aug 9, 2010 Wine Tasting Winery Blogs Wine Business

Hidden Ridge Vineyard is technically in Sonoma County, though it’s a stone’s throw from Pride Mountain Winery and is pretty close to Napa, as the crow flies. But in order to actually get to Hidden Ridge’s insanely, almost Mosel-esque steep vineyards in any reasonable amount of time, you’d need to travel as the crow flies.  [...]
