Oak Farm Vineyards Debuts a New Tasting Experience

Sat, 21 Apr 2018 18:23:43 +0000

Oak Farm Vineyards sits on a historic piece of land at the end of DeVries Road north of Peltier Road in Lodi. The Mokelumne River flows nearby. Oak is in the name of the winery for a very good reason unrelated to winemaking. The property is dotted with beautiful, old oak trees that were the passion of William DeVries who […]

A Taste of DO Bierzo and Bodegas Godelia

Thu, 19 Apr 2018 17:34:44 +0000

Godello, Doña Blanca, Mencía. Are these grape varieties familiar to you? They aren’t to most of us. All three are indigenous to the Iberian Peninsula and are represented in our Cellar Note today as components of the wines made by Bodegas Godelia. Godelia is situated outside the village of Cacabelos in the Spanish wine region of DO (Denominación de Origen) […]

#WorldMalbecDay – A Celebration of Malbec and Memories

Tue, 17 Apr 2018 15:28:39 +0000

As we become more serious about wine we find that it has become closely attached to the places we visit, the people we meet and meals we enjoy. Malbec is one of those wines for which we have particularly enjoyable memories. We were reminded of that close connection this weekend when we prepared a meal to enjoy with two bottles […]

Wines of Navarra and a Meal to Match #WinePW

Sat, 14 Apr 2018 02:01:16 +0000

If it’s April it must be Navarra. Yes, our Wine Pairing Weekend group of bloggers is traveling to Navarra this month to explore the region, its wine and, of course, the food. The inspiration for this trip came from Gwendolyn Alley who blogs with great enthusiasm (and skill) at Wine Predator. Gwendolyn also managed to wrangle tasting samples for us […]

Il Censo Praruar Terre Siciliane Bianco

Mon, 02 Apr 2018 16:59:51 +0000

2013 Il Censo Praruar Terre Siciliane Bianco — translucent rusty orange that is just a bit cloudy in the glass; interesting aromas and flavors of iron, rocky soil, cut rose stems and walnuts. Hints of iodine and smoke mingle in the background. Juicy acidity keep this wine bright and provides an interesting counterpoint to drying tannins. The finish goes on […]

The Wines of Domaine Bousquet with Anne Bousquet

Fri, 30 Mar 2018 17:28:52 +0000

It wasn’t until I began to take wine seriously that I became interested in the story behind a bottle of wine. My first interest was the variety and then, with a bit of experience, I began to consider style. The story of the winery came much later, after I began to grapple with wine regions. I think it was simply […]
