  • Newspapers are dead as we knew them; or, the turkey in the room

    Wine,Wine Writer One by one, I’ve watched trusted newspaper wine columnists get the sack from their editors. Some have been replaced by younger, rising stars, some columns went into syndication, and some just had wine disappear all together.

  • Wine of the Week 27 – amazing value dry Riesling

    I love Riesling. It is one of the best white grapes in the world and it produces such a wonderful variety of wines that it pains me that more consumers do not love it as I do. It still seems to evoke laughable images of the 1970s and Liebfraumilch for many people, but what those people have to remember is that all the things they find funny about the 1970s now, were not funny then.

  • Hitting the Century Club, in Virginia

    Virginia has a large number of microclimates throughout the state. Some grapes grow very well in Northern Virginia, but not in Southern Virginia or in the Northern Neck. While there are some grapes, like Cabernet Franc, that seem to grow well all over the state the variety of wine available throughout the state is pretty amazing.
