Why You Should Care When The Clock Strikes Wine O'Clock (Thoughts On The Enolytics 2016 Report)

 Mark As Read    

My first reaction to the recently-published study/synopsis on "Wine O'Clock" issued by the new firm Enolytics: Well… yeah… no sh*t! My second reaction to the recently-published study/synopsis on "Wine O'Clock" issued by the new firm Enolytics: Wait… holy crap! This is actually important (and I am an idiot)!

Uhm , Yeah, Well Who Doesn’t?!?? (Drinking Big On The “We Like Drinking” Podcast)

I was recently a guest on the We Like Drinking podcast (episode 66), hosted by wine blogger Jeff Eckles and beer brewer Jim Myers. Which, in a few moments, will have me talking about expensive Cabernet, Michael Fassbender, and new American Viticultural Areas. Just maybe not in that order. Anyway… You can listen to the […] Grab The 1Win...

My latest for Thrillist.com is now available, titled How to Level Up Food and Wine Pairings. Is there anything new regarding food and wine matching offered in this piece?

Pop Goes The… Something… (April 2016 Wine Product Round-up)

 Mark As Read    

The April edition of the wine products round-up brings us two new items from the sample pool, both of which I can recommend with some reservations. How's that for an endorsement?!? First up is the Vinturi Champagne Opener. Yes, you read that correctly. Vinturi has branched out from their popular aerator, and now has a […] Grab The 1WineDude....

That *Other* Antidote To Bordeaux-Bashing

 Mark As Read    

As reported by Dr. Vino (and elsewhere), much-celebrated (and almost-as-often-maligned) consultant winemaker Michel Rolland was recently asked if there was an antidote to "Bordeaux-bashing" (i.e., a backlash against the Bordeaux region in general – and its most storied houses, in particular – for producing wines that are increasingly to...

Pinooooooooooh Yeeeeaaaah (Two Exceptional Pinot Noir Recent Releases)

No, That Oral Microbiota Study Did Not Invalidate The History Of Wine Tasting

 Mark As Read    

Let's start with the short version: we all need to calm the hell down.
