Is That A Wine Book In Your Pocket, Or Are You Just Happy To Be Reading The Answers.com September 2014 Wine Article Roundup?

Well… I’m not exactly sure how to follow up that title, so let’s just jump into it; forthwith are the Wine.Answers.com articles I published this past month: Three Things You Didn't Know About Portuguese Wine – I’m scheduled to do some touring (and speaking) in Portugal in November, and in boning up on all things […] Grab The 1WineDude.com Ta...

A Few Hundred Bucks Worth Of Cult California Cab, Definitely Not Made By Metallica Roadies (Tanner Dafoe Recent Releases)

 Mark As Read    

Question: What do you get when you cross a law-school trained producer of films and commercials with a former professional mountain snowboarder? Anyone??? In the case of Tanner Dafoe (named after Jeff Tanner and Rob DaFoe, the producer and snowboarder, respectively), you get some fairly complete and substantial Cabernet Sauvignon priced like the Ca...

Everything That I Know About Investing (I Learned From Wine)

[ Warning: This post has very little to do about wine. But, it might just help to make you a millionaire.

Wine’s Next Big Thing Is…

 Mark As Read    

It seems that every quarter we get predictions about the next big thing in the U.S. wine market. Like most predictions, these are almost always wrong and therefore actually have, at best, neutral value for the wine biz (it could be argued that since they’re almost always incorrect, they have negative value if decisions are […] Grab The 1Wine...

Siduri Single Vineyard Recent Releases

 Mark As Read    

Earlier this week, we got into the head of the rabble-rousing guy behind the Siduri label, Adam Lee.

Getting Inside The Head Of Siduri’s Adam Lee

 Mark As Read    

Siduri’s Adam Lee is a rabble-rouser. He’s probably most known for producing interesting Pinot Noirs using from several different west coast vineyards (more on some of those single-vineyard wines later this week). He’s also pretty well known for something else: a couple of years ago, while taking part in a panel on alcohol levels and […] Gra...

Why Pennsylvania Liquor Control Is Doomed

It has occurred to me recently that Pennsylvania’s monopoly control of the purchase, distribution, and sale of alcohol in the state is doomed.

The Wine Blogging Community Is A Joke, Part Two

Back at the beginning of August, we generated a bit of controversy here (imagine that!) with my rant commentary on wine blogging, titled The Wine Blogging Community Is A Joke (But It Doesn’t Have To Be That Way).

A Quiet Resistance (Eyrie Vineyards Original Vines Pinot Noir, In Retrospect)

 Mark As Read    

Generally speaking, when you’re attending a Pinot Noir masterclass-style tasting hosted by one of a wine region’s most historically significant properties, it’s not considered good form to giggle like an eight year-old girl. Which, of course, didn’t stop me from doing it. The trouble was, I just found the irony so damned funny, it was […] Gr...

At this point, I think that we’ve established that Bordeaux native Christine Barbe is at least a little bit crazy. Very talented, but a little crazy.

Lower Alcohol Wines Can Still Get You Sh*t-faced (What We Drank With The Greeks, Part III)
