About a week ago, I got back from our annual pilgrimage to the Yosemite Vintners' Holidays event held at the beautiful Ahwahnee Hotel each fall. At this event -- which I wrote about a few years ago and which I...
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.

Chateau La Couspaude in St. Emilion has a well earned reputation for producing high quality wine at fair prices. The wine is a unique expression of St. Emilion. It’s round, rich and ripe, and consumers flock to it as it drinks well early. To find out how La Couspaude coped with the difficult 2011 Bordeaux growing season, we spoke with Vanessa Aubert.
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.
