    • Wine Enthusiast magazine’s list of 2015 Best Wine Travel Destinations

      I received a press release mentioning the February issue of Wine Enthusiast magazine’s list of Best Wine Travel Destinations of 2015. I always enjoy their list. Kathy and I have traveled to and written about more than 1,100 wineries and vineyards in North America, Europe and Oceania. I always enjoy seeing who made the Wine Enthusiast list and which of those regions we have visited.

    • 10 MORE things Starbucks won’t tell you…

  • Polar Vortex: Six Wine Things to Do When You’re Stuck in the House

    My part of the globe, Chicago, isn’t too warm right now. As I look outside, wind at 25 miles per hour is blowing snow in circles, I can hardly see the house across the street, and the sky is the same color as the snow. The last weather report declared that the temperature is 5 degrees and, factoring in the wind chill, any person crazy enough to venture outside will think that it’s -16.

Also his Arrowood wines from the 1980s on. What a treat, and I’ll get to see my friend, Virginie Boone, from Wine Enthusiast, whom I don’t see as often as I’d like. These retrospectives are rare…

  • Don't like a review --a wine rating? Let it alone!

    … Wine reviewers by egocentric necessity seem to require equally egocentric iconoclastic crusaders. Certainly there are better writers, better reviewers, and those less polemically challenged to contend for Wine Spectator, Wine Enthusiast, and all the wine reviewers (weighty or not) than moi, but why this constant effort to deflate not only…

  • Sensorist: The One Cellar Tool You Need, Right Now

    …. At first look, it felt pricey. Well, the actual cost of Sensorist is less than a great (or really good) bottle of wine, currently $199 plus shipping from Amazon or Wine Enthusiast, or €140 Euros plus VAT direct from Sensorist (approx $170 USD plus VAT and shipping).
