    Schiller's Favorite Wines of Madagascar

    Pictures: Christian G.E. Schiler with Malagasy Wines It is not well known in the rest of the world that Madagascar produces wine. Typically, it tends to be of good table wine quality, not more. The main grape varieties are traditionally Petit Bouchet, Villardin, Chambourcin and Varousset for vins rouge (reds) and the Couderc Blanc for vins blanc (whites).

    Travels in Sicily – Cantine Florio

    Photo: Cellar at Cantine Florio Before the 1943 Allied landing in Sicily, the Americans softened up the enemy by bombing Cantine Florio, Italy’s oldest producer of Marsala wines. From the air, the sprawling Florio cellar looked like a strategic target, given its location beside the ocean and near the railroad station.

The nose in particular is deep and ...

    Bourbon’s doing well. So well, in fact, that the Governor of the Commonwealth of Kentucky is serving Beam Black and donuts at a press conference praising the bourbon boom.
