They Can Be Heroes (Ben Rye Retrospective At Palate Press)

 Mark As Read    

Continuing the coverage from my Sicily jaunt earlier this year, if you head on over to Palate Press you can now view my take on a bit of a vinous historic first ("Heroic Viticulture on the island of Pantelleria"). While in Sicily, I was lucky enough to have a chance to visit both the wind-swept […] Grab The 1WineDude.com Tasting Guide and st...

Rolling Out The Barrels (PUBLIX Grape Fall 2015)

 Mark As Read    

Summer's almost over. Yeah, I said it. Yeah, it's mildly depressing. Yeah, it's a good excuse to drink. For those of you within the mailing address sphere of supermarket chain PUBLIX, you can find my latest contribution to their wine-focused magazine, Grape, in the soon-to-be-released Fall 2015 issue. Therein, among other things, we revisit the [&#...

Toasting To Wine And Art (Elizabeth Bollwitt’s “PROST”)

 Mark As Read    

Today, we take a brief break from talking about wine as art, and instead talk briefly about wine as art subject. I get contacted by many people with wine product ideas who would like a shot at getting their wares featured or reviewed on the virtual pages here. A not-insignificant percentage of those products find […] Grab The 1WineDude.com T...

Wine And Social Media: Not Just For The Tech Savvy

 Mark As Read    

One of the speaking engagements where I scared everyone sh*tless with tough luv for which I was hired earlier this Summer was recently given a write-up in the Corks And Forks section of The Columbian's website.

How I Learned To Stop Worrying And Love Carricante (Highlights From Sicilia En Primeur 2015)

 Mark As Read    

It's somewhat ironic, as I kick off a series of posts about my press jaunt to Sicily earlier this year, that the wine region I often cite as a source of reasonably-priced wines made from international varieties will now be compressed into a highlight reel focusing primarily on one indigenous variety. But hey, we gotta […] Grab The 1WineDude....

Apparently “Riedel” Is Actually Pronounced “A**hole” (Glassware Company Bullies Wine Blogger)

 Mark As Read    

Last week Riedel, the Austrian glassware company that seems tailor-made for the anally-retentive (the company produces glasses designed specifically for different wine styles and individual varietal wines, and even for different types of water), threatened wine blogger (and friend of 1WD) Ron Washam, better known within the wine biz as The Hosemast...

Sweet Niblets! (2010 Anakota Helena Montana Vineyard Cabernet)

The gravelly, sandy soils of the Helena Montana vineyard sit about 950 feet above sea level in Knights Valley. It's where we'll be wrapping up the recent spate of California coverage her on 1WD (…and all the Europhiles rejoiced…).

There Is No Wine Blogging

 Mark As Read    

A recent spate of criticism levied against wine bloggers as a general group got me thinking that there actually isn't a thing we might call "wine blogging" anymore.

It’s Not “Hipster” If It’s Already “Mainstream” (On Delectable And The Changing Tastes Of Today’s Fine Wine Consumers)

Last week, one of the nation's only real newspapers (the New York Times) published a little piece about the popular wine review mobile app Delectable.

You Will Read This Post Just Because It Mentions The 100 Point Wine Rating Scale In The Title

Sigh… Here we go. Again. It seems the 100 point wine rating scale debate – and its subsequent delineation of ivory-tower criticism vs. crowd-sourced wine recommendations – has once again reared its ugly head, though since it's a zombie topic that's never quite dead, it doesn't have to raise its moaning, rotting head very far [R...
