      Puppy Juice: Wine Tasting Gone to the Dogs (VIDEO) 0 Puppy Power: Wine Tasting is Ruff Work I’ve been inspired by Last Week Tonight with John Oliver and their #PuppyJustice video hoping to get more people interested in Supreme Court cases.

    …, but is a nicely detailed wine with it’s own charms and beauty. While most people know Domaine Clusel-Roch for their Cote-Rotie and Condrieu the winery also does a few Gamay wines, including a rose even, and this Traboules is a delicious, almost Rhone like, example of this Beaujolais varietal. While a bit weird, this intriguing wine is wickedly cool…

  • Wine of the week: Astoria Prosecco NV

    … The Wine Curmudgeon, slowly but surely, is understanding Prosecco, the Italian sparkling wine. First, because I’m making an effort to appreciate it, and not to dismiss Prosecco because it doesn’t taste the way I want it to taste.
