    23rd annual Fall Hopland Passport is coming, Oct 18 & 19, 2014

    … a.m. to 5:00 p.m. each day. Like Napa in the 60’s or Healdsburg in the 70’s, Hopland today is a place where there are more grape growers than wineries, where organic is normal, and where amazing wines remain largely undiscovered.

    Wine of the Day October 13, 2014

    … of saltiness, flinty spice, wet stones and minerality along with hints of white flowers, sweet herbs and it open to a round mouth filling textural feel without being heavy, this is sublime mountain wine. There is an almost German, or Riesling like force running through this wine that really lifts the flavors and gives fantastic extract, energy and structure…

Markus Molitor Saarburger Rausch Riesling ** 2012 Mosel, Germany Pale yellow/ green colour...quite full...touch of sweetness...but hold-back minerals...this is more 'drinkable' or should I say 'gulpable' with that instant Mosel style.

Let me know what wines you pair with your wings? by uproot.…

    Prawn cutlets

    …I made too much Marie Rose sauce and so it was back to the fish shop to purchase more prawns. I wanted to share a childhood memory with my own children. My Father would cook a batch of cutlets and we would devour them, I can still remember the fizz as the prawns hit the oil. . . I bought a score of Jumbo kings, may be 70 grams a piece…

    Visiting Stellenboschkloof (1): Super Single

    … and riesling – actually I wonder why they didn’t plant the vines on their own roots, as phylloxera is hardly likely to be a problem; but no other wines have yet been released – it’s an exciting prospect).
