I can't believe it's not Stelvin!

2008-01-06T20:38:06-07:00

There are those who cling to the 'romance' and 'tradition' of popping the cork prior to imbibing. Then there are those who think such 'romance' and 'tradition' are ridiculous if these totems potentially mean stinking, spoiled wine. Both camps have...



Gutenberg Would be Proud: The Juice in Print

2007-12-18T20:14:10-07:00

If you happen to dwell in the land of hard copy, check out the current issue of Salt Lake Magazine. Whilst neglecting Basic Juice in cyberspace, I have been nurturing it in the world of print. Alas, I am still...



Not Good with Turkey

2007-11-22T05:52:00-07:00

This time of year the wine lover is inundated with T-day wine recommendations..."German Riesling is perfect with turkey"...."A Beaujolais is a sure bet on Thanksgiving"...."Burgundy, both red and white are ideal on your Thanksgiving".....etc. etc. I for one am tired...

It's Not Big It's Large

2007-11-11T21:12:32-07:00

The adjective 'big' as it relates to wine often carries a slightly negative connotation. Well, if not a overtly negative, then at least, fairly rough. A big red wine is more often lauded for its power than its beauty. Perhaps...



Old Wine Bloggers Never Die, They Just Write for the Gazette

2007-10-19T11:23:24-06:00

For those who have been around the wine blog-o-sphere for a few years, the Caveman's blog was a gem. Bill Z. offered world class wine knowledge with a down-to-earth attitude. Like many blogs (this one included) the Caveman posted less...



Hey, NZ! Hold Everything.

2007-10-19T09:44:14-06:00

I've often wondered why New Zealand was anointed/anointed itself as the land of Sauvignon Blanc. To be sure, NZ SB has been quite successful as an import to the US wine market (and certainly names like 'Monkey Bay' don't hurt...



A Case for Creativity (AKA Free Wine!)

2007-10-14T15:01:12-06:00

Are you the Mac-daddy/-mommie when it comes to creativity? Have you ever looked at all the blasé wine labels out there and thought, "I could do so much better."? Well, here's a chance to explore your creative side and score...



A Question of Eis

2007-10-12T14:34:00-06:00

Reader Dag from Norway (Oslo rep-re-sents!) poses a question about Eiswein: "May I raise a question after a discussion we had in Luxembourg recently, about icewein. Must be picked at minus 7 degrees and pressed while still frozen. But, I...
