Comment on Making Sense of Wine…or Not by Marcia Macomber

Fri, 01 Jul 2011 20:10:26 +0000

Ya know, it's really insulting when you're own blog trashes one of your own comments to the ether and you've gotta rewrite the whole thing! (Sigh.) A-I do have a list of most of the wines from dinner, if you'd like them, Samantha. B-I wholly agree with you about the consumer learning what's in French wines. It's just too bad (but perfectly normal) that HOW we've learned about domestic and French wines is taught to us completely differently. We've got our work cut out to learn the nuances of France's geography! I will be pouring over my atlas!

Was lovely to finally meet you Marcia. So glad you were able to make our blogger dinner for Thomas. There were 19 wines and I think I did try them all, sadly I didn't have pen and paper so I can't really write about them! One of the challenges I see with French wine marketing is the American consumers absolute need to know what is in the bottle. I know it's the way we know and market wine here in the US but telling someone that the Cote Rotie they are about to drink is Syrah or the Chablis is Chardonnay is only going to lead to comparisons to those grapes from this country and that should never happen. When I do my intro to French Wine classes the first thing I do is pour a domestic Chard and a Chablis side by side and ask the guests to guess what the two have in common, other than white they can't tell me. That's when I tell them they need to, when thinking and approaching French wines, to think not of grape, (because the point of reference does no good here) but of place. Very difficult thing to teach I can assure you. And labeling French wines with the variety is going to often do a disservice, as is often the case if someone is looking for Chardonnay and gets a bottle of stony, seashell, almost salty Chablis. Just my two cents!

While I still haven't found the information on composers, here is some source material on greatness (with some back up on my Mozart comments on page 6): http://www.coachingmanagement.nl/The%20Making%20of%20an%20Expert.pdf

That's the story of most designers. Cant please everyone in some design. I m not a fan of the London olympics logo, but I dont see any Zion there. I would say, the text "2012" is basically somehow related to zion in structure.

Nice Blog format. Like it alot. I agree in some ways that the wine label artwork can dispel the buyer from buying or grab the buyer. One label comes to mind, J in gold, on the bottle, simple elegance.






Comment on Standing Out From the Crowd: April in Carneros’ Sea of Wines by Regina

Very interesting and well written blog. Having also jetted my way aroung April in Carneros for one and a half days, it was clear to me that the "being treated like second class" was pretty accurate, but not at all wineries. It seems important to me that all of the wineries wine gets tasted at these events, especially for the wineries that are not open to the public otherwise.

Thanks for sharing Marcia very good feedback - Hospitality Los Carneros is the organization that puts this event on...they have a Facebook fan page and you might want to post a link to your blog. I hope we can meet for a glass of wine soon! -Cindy
