• Earthquake Rattles Napa Harvest

      This morning shortly after 3:00 AM Pacific Time, the strongest earthquake to hit Northern California since the devastating 1989 Loma Prieta quake struck in American Canyon, just south of Napa. Latest measurements are somewhere between 6.0 and 6.1 on the Richter scale. "All our 2013 red barrels are on the ground, don't know how much wine is lost yet" tweeted Steve Matthiasson of ...

    • 2014 Family Winemakers Tasting: August 17, San Mateo

      Size isn't everything, they say, but sometimes it's mighty impressive. The yearly Family Winemakers tasting has as one of its many claims to fame that it is the single largest tasting of California wines in the world. That alone would not be reason for excitement, were it not for the generally very high quality of the wines that are on offer, year after year.

  • Come Explore The Essence of Wine with Me in Healdsburg: October 30th, 2014

    10.16.2014 Come Explore The Essence of Wine with Me in Healdsburg: October 30th, 2014 Healdsburg is one of my favorite little wine country towns. Located at what I like to think of as the intersection of the Russian River Valley, Dry Creek Valley, and Alexander Valley wine growing regions, it's a great little retreat for anyone looking to dive into a quiet wine country weekend.

  • Another Idiotic California Law Screws Wineries

    10.11.2014 Another Idiotic California Law Screws Wineries Last week I wrote about the perverted horrors of Proposition 65, the law ostensibly created to protect Californians against toxic chemicals but which inadvertently makes most wineries vulnerable to frivolous lawsuits. The legislators in Sacramento are generally well disposed towards one of their state's largest indust ...

  • The Fake Tongue Illusion and Wine Tasting

    10.06.2014 The Fake Tongue Illusion and Wine Tasting The degree to which the mechanics of our own perception continue to be a mystery to us gives me no end of delight. Of course I equally enjoy the insights from our progress chipping away at this mystery, one experiment at a time. While not done with the kind of rigor normally applied to neuroscience, the wine world has offe ...

    10.06.2014 2014 Wine & Spirits Top 100 Tasting: October 21, San Francisco There are wine tastings, and then there are wine tastings. The annual Wine & Spirits Magazine Top 100 Tasting is quite possibly my favorite big public wine tasting each year in San Francisco. Why? Because the quality of wines poured at this event is always second to none.

  • Cool Beauty: Tasting the Wines of the Western Sonoma Coast

    10.04.2014 Cool Beauty: Tasting the Wines of the Western Sonoma Coast I'll admit it. I'm an acid freak. More than anything else in a wine, I'm looking for the juiciness that I get from well-balanced wines that lean towards the lower side of pH. There's nothing quite like that zip and crackle of a wine that gets your tastebuds tingling and your mouth watering.

    10.01.2014 2014 Pinot on the River Tasting: October 26, Healdsburg Now is a wonderful, if slightly manic time to be wandering around wine country. Harvest is, for many, complete, and wines are bubbling and burbling their way through fermentations. It's the time of year that wine country really becomes wine country.

  • California Law and Wine: Ups and Downs

    09.23.2014 California Law and Wine: Ups and Downs California is by most measures, the eighth largest economy in the world. And of the state's $2.05 Trillion domestic production, wine makes up more than $51 Billion, or about 2.5% of the economy. As we might expect, the California state legislature, therefore, pays some serious attention to the wine industry.
