    • WBC 2014 and the Wine Blog Awards – Part 1

      Before we begin… Later in this post I mention that some of my fellow bloggers might be too genteel to express themselves the way that I tend to do. If I had to pick one person that I know to apply that word to, it would be my fellow Texas import, Melanie Ofenloch, otherwise known as DallasWineChick. As far as I know, I’ve never done this before, but I would like to dedicate this post to her.

  • The “F” Word and Mother Nature’s Lady Parts: VINTAGE 2014

    If you think you know what someone means when she says “the ‘F’ Word,” you probably have not spent much time with a winemaker. Talk of Lady parts and Mother Nature’s ass — it was not quite was I expected when Wil Fernandez sent me a sneak preview of VINTAGE 2014: the stories behind the vines. I have seen some of the initial filming, and the photography is stunning, but I was ...

  • Good Texas wines honor Terroir

    Many Texas wineries exhibit the hubris Texas has become known for all over the world — with a swagger and a determination, they attempt to bend Mother Nature over and whip her into submission. If it works for oil, then why shouldn’t it work for wine? Those wineries making mediocre wines claim any ‘perceived’ flaws can be attributed to the terroir (a French word that refers t ...

  • Celebrate Champagne Day Oct. 24th!

    Friday, October 24th marks the Fifth Annual Champagne Day, a celebration of the sparkling wine from the only place from which “Champagne” is produced: Champagne, France. Sponsored by the Champagne Bureau, Champagne Day seeks to remind consumers that while they can drink lovely sparkling wines from anywhere in the world, only wine produced in Champagne, France is truly Champagne.

  • Wines of San Juan, Argentina

    Wines of where? Puerto Rico? Nope, these wines are from the up-and-coming province of San Juan, Argentina, and they offer a pleasant reminder of the value that lesser-known wine-producing regions around the world can deliver. They also remind us that purity can equal quality in wines. Bonarda, Tannat, Syrah, Malbec and Torrontes are some of the main varietals coming out of th ...

  • Goldwater 2012 Pinot Noir

    Bright and delicate with none of those wet leaves’ flavors that often overpower some pinots, this Goldwater 2012 Pinot Noir hails from the famed Wairau Valley of Marlborough, New Zealand, where winemaker Stuart Marfell grew up “just next door,” (if you could call a 2,000-acre farm “just next door”) at his father’s sheep ranch near the small town Blenheim, population 500.

  • Three-legged dogs, Jack Dempsey and Rye Whiskey

    Imagine music so good, so soulful, so gypsy, so nasty, so pure, that it gets into the very marrow of your bones, rips your heart out and washes it gently in the lazy waters of the Delta then puts it back in your chest, only to leave you wanting more. Imagine a transcendent voice, both gravely and smooth at the same time, weaving tales of three-legged dogs, Jack Dempsey and R ...

  • Veuve Cliquot Mail Truck pops corks in Houston

    It appears on nearly every wine list in every major city’s restaurants across the nation; it pops up at nearly every “middle-to-high class” social event; its large yellow label is overtly displayed in nearly every retail outlet for wine, from independent liquor stores to huge grocery chains across the nation; it is the go-to “bubbles” for those who don’t know bubbles…and for those who do.

  • Morgan Neufeld talks about WSET Level 3 from the Texas Wine School

    Amy met Morgan Neufeld one Wednesday morning in June at Camerata at Paulie’s where she was attending Banfi’s Cru Artisan College. Friendly and bubbly, Morgan was in the middle of her Wine & Spirit Education Trust (WSET) Level 3 certification course and attending the “College” to learn more about the Luxury Selections of the Banfi portfolio from the artisan winemakers who crafted them.

  • A Writer’s Response to Intimidation

    In political writing, investigative journalism and satire, the subject of the story is often cast in a light he or she does not like. If the piece is outrageously untrue, as often happens in satire, a good-natured subject, while irked, will respond with humor. It takes the heat off, diffuses whatever power the writing may have and puts the subject in a positive light, showing ...

  • Just the Facts (and a Mea Culpa)

    My earlier post has generated some negative comments, many of them well-deserved. As is typical with this kind of dust-up, there are people who agree but don’t want to roll around in the mud. Although not as many as usual. All of this points to one thing; I was wrong. When Amy compiled these numbers we felt that if we just published the charts as-is they would be too dry and would be ignored.
