You’re Welcome (Hangover Prevention At Fix.com)

 Mark As Read    

You're welcome. No, seriously, you're going to thank me later. Because my latest for Fix.com, titled How to Avoid a Hangover, is now live, and reading it just might save you some future pain.

"As the world fell, each of us in our own way was broken.

January 2016 Wine Product Roundup (A Bit Late…)

 Mark As Read    

Ok, so I am a weeeeeee bit late on the wine product round-up for January 2016 (I blame travel, and drinking, both of which constitute "work" in my bizarre-but-fantastic life). This month, I've got only one product to feature; a small one, with a relatively big price, and even bigger aspirations: Vagnbys Wine Decantiere ($44). […] Grab The 1W...

Yeah, I Am Gonna Eat That (Dispatch From Sicily With Zonin 1821’s Gastronomy Experience)

 Mark As Read    

Last year, I did a sort of double-dip on the Italian wine community. I traveled on a media tour to Asti in the north (to eat fried cow brain and other fantastically odd delicacies, while getting immersed in all things Ruchè). And, since I was in Italy anyway, I was taken on another media tour […] Grab The 1WineDude.com Tasting Guide and sta...

Why Is It Always Someone Else’s Fault? (Thoughts On Slipping Wine Sales)

Furmint Adventures Episode 13: Holdvölgy Winery

 Mark As Read    

We've got a brand new episode in my ongoing Furmint Adventures series, this time exploring the modern-take-on-tradition that is Holdvölgy Winery. That modern take on well-proven styles isn't just part of the winemaking; it's literally built into the winery operation itself, as you'll clearly see from the video that the FurmintUSA folks have expert...

Just in case you're not quite totally sick of me yet, my latest feature for Palate Press was recently published, with the focus (words and photos) on the unsung red grape variety of Piedmont: Ruchè (I traveled the area last year as a media guest).

Here we go again! It's time for the 2015 edition of the Most Interesting Wines of the Year.
