Gallo and Constellation Screwed by U.S. Tort Law | Wine website, Wine magazine...What’s Hot Today on Wine Blogs? | Scoop.it
Gallo and Constellation Screwed by U.S. Tort Law. I'm sure I'm going to catch hell for this post from any number of quarters, but it needs to be said. Big wine companies are favorite punching bags for wine lovers that would never buy their products.

I am loving those 2009 red Burgundies!

I am loving those 2009 red Burgundies! | Wine website, Wine magazine...What’s Hot Today on Wine Blogs? | Scoop.it

I wish I could say - "If there ever was a time to get into red Burgundy, it's the 2009 vintage" - it's one of those rare vintages that I believe will appeal to both old world and new world wine lovers. It has the fruit, the approachability, and the richness that California wine lovers seek, but the coolness (13-13.5% alc), acid, and nuance that old world palates demand.

In US, could the next set of big-time wine communicators come from the ranks of America’s sommeliers? | Wine website, Wine magazine...What’s Hot Today on Wine Blogs? | Scoop.it

There is a lot of talk these days about the future of wine journalism, but I wonder if those of us doing all the navel-gazing have overlooked one possibility: could the next set of big-time wine communicators come from the ranks of America’s sommeliers?
