Wine Century Club Tasting II

Wednesday, April 23rd, 2008

We had so much fun exploring new wines in our first Wine Century Club Tasting that we decided to do it again. We headed over to K&L Wine Merchants to order another case of wine (actually a baker’s dozen this time), each bottle containing at least one grape variety that we had not previously tasted. […]

For example, our February dinner featured Washington Syrah. For more information on how we set up these dinners, please visit our Tasting Dinners page. When […]

You can buy great value wines for under $20 (some under $10).

Friday, January 11th, 2008

“You only have so many bottles in your life, never drink a bad one.” –Len Evans Wine prices are not inherently linked to quality and pleasure. As we’ve said in the About page, we’ve tried wines in and from almost every major wine-producing area in the world. We’ve had blind tastings and wine tasting dinners […]

Spanish Ayes!

Thursday, January 10th, 2008

One of my goals for 2008 is to learn more about Spanish wines. Most of you are probably familiar with the easy drinking, widely available, great value Las Rocas de San Alejandro Garnacha (Grenache) which retails for $7-10 in most areas. As you go up the quality ladder in Spain, you probably think of Tempranillos […]
