The Crush Is The First Step In Turning Grapes Into #Wine

The Crush Is The First Step In Turning Grapes Into #Wine | Wine website, Wine magazine...What’s Hot Today on Wine Blogs? | Scoop.it

Chillin' Out in Coombsville, Napa's Last Secret Terroir

Chillin' Out in Coombsville, Napa's Last Secret Terroir | Wine website, Wine magazine...What’s Hot Today on Wine Blogs? | Scoop.it
Chillin' Out in Coombsville, Napa's Last Secret Terroir. The idea that a place as well-trodden as Napa might still harbor secret corners seems slightly laughable in this day and age. But if any place might still claim a shred of obscurity it would be Coombsville. Tucked behind the city of Napa to the northeast, this recently minted (as of 2011) AVA has been hiding in plain sight for a while. Cooled by the same fog and breezes from the San Pablo bay that make Carneros such a cooler region than the rest of Napa, Coombsville's rolling hills of volcanic and alluvial soils make for a goldilock

It's Time for American Wineries to Grow Up. OK America, it's time to put on your big boy pants, and start playing responsibly with the rest of the world. 10 years ago, the U.S. Government cut a deal with the European Union that guaranteed we would not allow companies in this country to mis-use the protected place names for European wine regions. That means that no one in the U.S. is allowed to create a product called

I'll Drink to That: Alexandre and François Thienpont of Vieux Château Certan | Wine website, Wine magazine...What’s Hot Today on Wine Blogs? | Scoop.it
I'll Drink to That: Alexandre and François Thienpont of Vieux Château Certan. Episode 350 of I'll Drink to That! was released recently. It features Alexandre Thienpont of Vieux Château Certan in Pomerol, as well as his cousin François Thienpont of the wine trading firm Wings. Alexandre Thienpont is clearly someone who has thought closely about every aspect of his method, trying to refine every process, to tighten every screw along the way. This has been his mindset for decades now, having taken charge of Vieux Château Certan in 1985 with the explicit desire to make the wine better than the previous generations had. Alexandre has followed that desire with

I had the good fortune to visit with Jean Hugel at his winery in Riquewihr with my family in September 1986. We tasted many of Hugel’s wines including his famous late harvest dessert wines, and this wine in particular. In 1986 it was superb, rich, unctuous, sweet and incredibly well balanced, and by Jean Hugel’s …

Brazil Ready to Enter #Wine Olympics

Brazil Ready to Enter #Wine Olympics | Wine website, Wine magazine...What’s Hot Today on Wine Blogs? | Scoop.it
It’s not because Brazil is new to wine production. It has more than 1,100 wineries, mostly in the cooler southern regions, and there are more than a quarter of a million acres under vines. But, although there are some very good to excellent wines being made there and exported here, the reputation of these wines has been overshadowed by the reputation of wines that weren’t worth writing home about, let alone bringing home. Alas, some appeared on our doorsteps, anyway.
