(Bubble) Wrap That Rascal! (July 2016 Wine Product Roundup)

 Mark As Read    

Given that, at the time this publishes, I will be on the road (yeah… again…), this seemed like an apt time to dive into the non-liquid portion of the sample pool, and offer up the July 2016 incarnation of the Wine Product Roundup. This month, there are no drinking vessels in the lineup, but the […] Grab The 1WineDude.com Tasting ...

Clang, Clang, Clang Went The Trolley! (Results From The 2016 San Francisco International Wine Competition)

 Mark As Read    

Ah, San Francisco… sourdough, trolley cars, wine competitions… If you're so inclined, you can now browse the medal-winning results from the 2016 San Fransisco International Wine Competition in which I was fortunate enough to have taken part once again (for more details, see the 2014 and 2015 results write-ups). Judging in that event has...

Golden Years (Tasting Fifty Harvests Of Mondavi Reserve Cabernet)

 Mark As Read    

Know how to get a cavalcade of seasoned (read: potentially jaded) wine writers, winemakers, wine growers, and wine industry insiders to go as quiet as mice (I'm talking pin-drop-sounds-like-a-jet-engine-on-fire quiet), and as stupefied as deer in the headlights? I do. I saw Robert Mondavi Winery pull it off a few weeks ago in Napa Valley. […]...

Working Hard To Change Nothing (Williams Selyem Recent Releases)

 Mark As Read    

There was so much that I didn't want to like about Sonoma's storied Williams Seylem. The too-cool-for-school exclusivity of their mailing list. The imposing fortress-like facade of their "barrel-evoking" tasting room and its "wall of bottles." The fact that they used terms like "barrel-evoking." That current owners John and Kathe Dyson were former ...

Hey, Wine Ladies! Take The Power Back!

 Mark As Read    

How many of you caught the recent diatribes by both Guy Woodward (of Harpers) and Monika Elling (of Foundations Marketing Group in New York City) regarding the under-representation of women in the wine biz? This quote from Elling summarizes the view pretty succinctly: "I’ve been in the business some time and experienced it from several […] G...

Go Forth, And Grill! (Talking Wine And BBQ For Fix.com)

With warmer weather finally upon us in the Northern Hemisphere, my latest for Fix.com ("Grilling and Grapes") focuses on what wine grapes to keep in mind when you're firing up the grill.

In Other Words, The Wine Biz Is Pretty F*cked Up (Thoughts On The Closure Of IPOB)

The wine media world has been tripping over itself to cover the recently-announced ceasing of operations by In Pursuit of Balance (IPOB), an organization of producers that held tastings of wines that fit what the organizers and their tasting panel deemed to be New World wines of particularly elegant expression. In other words, wines that […] ...

Back in March (yeah, yeah, I know…) I attended, as a media guest, the 2016 edition of the well-executed but unfortunately-named L'Anteprima Lazise (seriously… how many of you knew that was a town near Lake Garda in N. Italy?).  The event marked the first time that the nearby winemaking regions of Chiaretto, Lugana, and Bardolino […...
