89 Years Of Kicking Ass (1927 D’Oliveiras Bastardo Madeira)

 Mark As Read    

I was heartened by all of the positive reaction to a recent Book of Face post regarding the combination of two aging souls who are still kicking all kinds of ass. The first is my cousin Kathleen, who turned 89 years old this past Saturday. The second was a certain rare-ish Madeira wine that happens […] Grab The 1WineDude.com Tasting Guide an...

Rocks & Riesling Proves That Rangen Riesling Rocks

 Mark As Read    

So… we were talking about Riesling Rendezvous 2016, before we were so rudely interrupted by about a week of "real life." RR 2016 provides some concurrent sessions, during which you can listen about and, usually, taste wines from particular Riesling-producing regions. I happened to get signed up for what was called "Rocks & Riesling: Explo...

Seaside Rendezvous, Part Deux (Highlights From Riesling Rendezvous 2016)

 Mark As Read    

I, along with three or four other people (ok, it's not that bad, it just feels that bad), profess to love Riesling, so much so that I actually purchase it with my own hard-earned cash. So I'm not the kind of wine writer to turn down a media invite to the Seattle-hosted Riesling Rendezvous event […] Grab The 1WineDude.com Tasting Guide and st...

And Then, There Was Mojo (Highlights From Sonoma County Barrel Auction 2016)

 Mark As Read    

Personally, I didn't need any more evidence that Sonoma generally has its mojo working and is making some of the best wines ever to come out of the region. But I got a thoroughly inundating reminder of that when I visited the second (2016) incarnation of the Sonoma County Barrel Auction as a media guest […] Grab The 1WineDude.com Tasting Gui...

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

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.

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).

Golden Years (Tasting Fifty Harvests Of Mondavi Reserve Cabernet)

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!

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?

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.
