The event continues to be one of the best run and highest quality wine events in the country, with a fantastic combination of excellent wine and equally fantastic food. More about Pinot Noir in a day or two.

    Come for the Private Events: Stay for the Conference

    The Wine Bloggers Conference was awesome, but it’s hard for 300 plus people to have the kind of conversations that lead to the stories that I love to tell.  Ironically, of the 39 pages of notes that I took during my time in Santa Barbara, only 12 of them came from my time at #wbc14.  I had the same trend with my photos as well.

      Pennsylvania Vine Company - - 9 readers - We were recently invited to participate in a virtual tasting for What Exit Wines, a second label for New Jersey Winery Old York Cellars. Though actually unfamiliar with Old York’s first label offerings, it was a good opportunity to better acquaint ourselves with wine from the Garden State, which, it seems, some journalist is dubbing “the next Napa” every few months these days.

      Bosoms, Bubbles, and Bollinger: What Shape Is Your Champagne Glass?

      … Champagne, which is a white wine, out of a white wine glass, in order to taste the wine’s fullness in a way that’s impossible in a flute. The wine glass’s bowl is wide enough (and wider than the tulip glass) for the wine to breathe, open, and develop, and release its aromas and flavors. The inward-sloping sides at the top of the glass deliver…

      Wine of the Week 15 – a fine Picpoul as last of my summer wine

      … good example of a something that has managed to break through the Pinot Grigio and Sauvignon Blanc stranglehold to become quite trendy and popular – Picpoul de Pinet. This is a white wine within the Languedoc appellation, which overwhelmingly produces red wines, and has its own sub region appellation. I really like and enjoy Picpoul, at least Picpoul…

I like a late morning Bloody Mary as a pre-lunch pick me up (I’m currently using Ubon’s Bloody Mary Mix and doctoring it when too tired to do it from scratch). Crisp white and rosé wines get paired with lunch, cheese and crackers and dinner. I’d like to imagine I’d be capable…
