    Speaking truth to power: Why I don’t go ape over Riesling

    I’ve gotten so tired of geeks talking up the virtues of Riesling that it actually came as a relief when I read Jancis Robinson’s column on her blog yesterday in which she concedes she might “go to my grave” without the masses never properly appreciating the wine she has loved “for roughly 35 years.” Riesling freaks have been telling us Americans for years that there’s something ...

      Wine Review: Santa Margherita Valdadige Pinot Grigio 2013

      Edible Arts - - 6 readers - Pinot Grigio is the most popular imported white grape variety in the U.S. Frankly, I just don’t get it. It’s not aromatic and on the palate is largely a mouthful of acidity—refreshing to be sure but so is water and I don’t pay $12 for a glass of water. The problem is not the grape.
