  • So we have some interest in having a West Coast meet-up (or you can call it a throw-down) for Pinot.  Here's my opening proposal:  We'll do it very close to the Oakland Airport, to save those who are traveling in from out of town (like Emark and JonDerry) from having extra travel if they want to fly.  This would give LuchaVino a chance to attend...

  • Christine, I attended a tasting a few weeks ago and learned that the Mer Soleil "Silver" Chardonnay is fermented in concrete. I have seen references to "Steel Fermented" wines on several labels over the years.  Typically, these are white wines.  The only on that comes to mind right not is a Chardonnay from Foley in the Sta. Rita Hills area of Ca... Read More

  • Chardonnay & Cabernet, the old CA stalwarts...I can go explore as much as I ... straight Sonoma Coast Chard.Sta Rita Hills in Santa Barbara is also worth your time. Liquid Farm and Clos Pepe are my favorites, while Dragonette's Sauvignon Blanc gets heaps of praise. With the addition of Sandhi, you would do well to just live on these producer's ... Read More
