Tastings offer the chance for so many diverse people to come together

Tastings offer the chance for so many diverse people to come together | Wine website, Wine magazine...What’s Hot Today on Wine Blogs? | Scoop.it

When I am conducting a tasting event I get to see the diversity of human beings and it is very revealing. You engage the audience when you have to, and then disappear when you aren't needed, but, like Dennis Thatcher behind Maggie, you are always there... observing.

YES, Malbec may be the grape—and wine—of the moment, but there are other offerings on the Argentine wine list. This was the gist of the wine exposition organized by the Embassy of Argentina last month at the Rockwell Club.

James Suckling : "France is the benchmark and always will be, just like Cuba is THE reference point for cigars." | Wine website, Wine magazine...What’s Hot Today on Wine Blogs? | Scoop.it
I am having a very friendly debate on Twitter with Pete Johnson, the owner of Tatuage Cigars, about whether Cuban cigars are the best in the world. I, of course, say they are. He says otherwise, although he is not the most unbiased Tweeter since he makes cigars in Nicaragua.

A mere marketing tool or a fundamental transformation of viticultural practices? - My take on biodynamics.

A mere marketing tool or a fundamental transformation of viticultural practices? - My take on biodynamics. | Wine website, Wine magazine...What’s Hot Today on Wine Blogs? | Scoop.it

This article will deal with a practice based in a very abstract concept. However, as Clive Coates MW said in his book - The Wines of Burgundy - “Sometimes the extremes of biodynamism sounds like black magic. But the point is: it works. We should learn not to scoff.”. Well, I’m a believer that is is important to go back to the roots (whenever possible) when talking about a subject as complex as biodynamics.

In-Flight Gripes: About Choosing wines for an airline

In-Flight Gripes: About Choosing wines for an airline | Wine website, Wine magazine...What’s Hot Today on Wine Blogs? | Scoop.it

It was three weeks ago today, returning from an impromptu visit in Toronto, that I had to double-take to see what my neighbour and fellow WestJet traveler was drinking as his in-flight beverage. Behold! It was a mini-bottle of Chardonnay made the world’s largest family winery Ernest & Julio Gallo – a product that a sommelier rarely feels comfortable having at arm’s reach.

Tramin Winery, Alto Adige, Italy

Tramin Winery, Alto Adige, Italy | Wine website, Wine magazine...What’s Hot Today on Wine Blogs? | Scoop.it

It’s a rather dramatic building; vibrantly painted struts form abstract shapes with the windows reflecting the forested mountains behind. The Tramin winery nestled under these crags overlooks a flat, almost featureless plain that folds on down to a river. The only thing one can see as the land stretches away to another range of mountains are vineyards, acres and acres of them.
