1WineDude.com TV Episode 61: “How The Pros Taste” From #WBC14

 Mark As Read    

Some of you asked for it, so here it is: our panel on how the pros taste wine from the 2014 Wine Bloggers Conference in Santa Barbara, CA. Or most of our panel, anyway; as much of it as could be recorded before my video camera lost its juice.

“One Foot Old World, One Foot New World” (Quivira Recent Releases)

 Mark As Read    

Ask Quivira winemaker (sorry, winegrower, as they prefer to call him) Hugh Chappelle for the Cliff Notes version of their style, and this is what you’ll get: “One foot Old World, one foot New World.” That's a pretty darned good summation, based on my recent visit to their Dry Creek Valley winery.

Blurbs South Of The Border (On Evan Goldstein’s “Wines Of South America”)

There are moments that mark a sort of rite of passage for personalities in any field.

 Mark As Read    

Disappointed that your wine sales aren't seeing an impact from your social media efforts? Then this study of the social media impacts experienced by nearly 400 U.S. wineries strongly suggests that you are approaching social media incorrectly.

“Tough To Spit” (Dispatch From 2014 San Francisco International Wine Competition)

 Mark As Read    

Every once in a while, you get a gig that is so good, you just have to pinch yourself to test if it’s all real and you’re actually getting paid to have so much fun.

This weekend, I’ll be partying at attending the 2014 Wine Bloggers Conference in Santa Barbara, an area with which, I’m happy to say, I am now quite familiar, and where I have quite a few friends trying to make a living in this crazy wine business of ours.

Crowd Pleasers For The Grill, From Cretans (Highlights From Wines Of Crete 2014 Tastings)

Last month, I had the pleasure of speaking about the native varieties of Crete at tastings in both NYC and D.C., organized by The Connected Table and Wines of Crete.

How Bad Is The Wine Biz At Digital? According To This, Really, Really Bad.

My friend Paul Mabray, of Vintank, recently gave a speech at the 2014 Wine Communicators of Australia event. The topic was, roughly speaking, the digital divide in the wine world.

Investing In Fine Wine Is (Still) For Fools

 Mark As Read    

We have (rather strong) anecdotal evidence that purchasing fine wines as investment vehicles is, for most people, an absurdly bad idea. Those examples, as strong as they are, could be criticized as falling under the “fallacy of small numbers” category, however, which might lead the hopelessly duped eternal optimists out there to conclude that in [&...

The Release Of Your Wine Is Not “News”

 Mark As Read    

I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but someday you’re gonna die. Also, the release of your wine almost certainly isn’t newsworthy, and your press release about it is probably superfluous, the end. To test whether or or not your wine release is, in fact, newsworthy, I have devised this handy (and incredibly […] Grab The 1WineDude.com Tastin...

Obscure Grapes, Dry British Humor, And Not-So-Dry Weather (Tasting And Recording At Philly’s Jet Wine Bar)
