My wine warmed up in transit. Is it still OK?

Like most wineries, with our tasting room closed the last two months we've seen a surge in phone and e-commerce wine orders. Some of these customers are regulars in ordering wine, but we know that for a lot of them, this is a new thing. For the first six weeks of the quarantine, we benefited from mostly cool weather around the country, but the last two weeks have warmed up and we've begun our annual weather watch to make sure that our shipments to you go out and arrive when the weather is as cool as possible.

Understanding Wind, an Underappreciated Part of Wine

Most winds that sweep through the world’s vineyards bring both positive and negative results for winegrowers, often depending on the time of the season in which they blow. Whatever happens, you often can taste “the wind” in your glass.

An Interview With Francis Ford Coppola: Master Filmmaker And Major Wine Producer

It’s likely that the name Francis Ford Coppola in most people’s minds will always be as one of the world’s great filmmakers, whose work includes The Godfather Trilogy, Apocalypse Now, The Conversation, The Outsiders, The Rainmaker and more. But anyone familiar with the pioneering figures in the American wine world knows that Francis Ford Coppola Winery, with brands that range from prestigious labels like Archimedes and Eleanor to his Director’s Cut series and Inglenook brands the highly successful Diamond Collection, is one of the industry’s dominant players.

When cider is wine

Alistair Morell explores the many parallels between cider/perry and wine, which he feels in its purest form should certainly not be bracketed together with beer. Nevertheless, the process of keeving keeps its unique. Alistair’s presentation to the Circle on the subject can be found on YouTube.

Much variation in wine duties in Europe

As most of you will have noticed, there is a so-called trade war going on between the USA and Europe. This has nothing to do with the wine industry, directly, but it has been dragged into it because some of the personalities behind the squabble think that it is a good idea.

These wines are far too sexual
27 August 2020 19:20
These wines are far too sexual

Wine has become very horny. I don’t know if you’ve noticed, but every bottle of red you see on shelves lately is called something like “Fornication” or “Sensual Eagle.” The labels themselves are soft-core porno, usually featuring excited imagery like a woman whispering into a man’s ear or a bunch of cupids planning an orgy. It’s honestly surprising that this wine doesn’t feature outright nudity. Seemingly the only rule for retail wine is that it must be sexual in tone and presentation. I worry that the people in charge of marketing wine desperately need to get laid. Their brains appear to be so clouded with sexual fantasies that they can’t think of a name for Merlot that doesn’t involve the phrase “between the sheets.” It’s becoming too much and, often, corny as hell. I swear to God that I just now took a wild guess that there’s probably a bottle of wine out there called Quiver, and yep, of course there is. The marketing for wine always reads like a bad romance novel. Sex is fun, but these horned-up winos come across like people who only ever call it lovemaking.

Dan Berger On Wine: Delight in the details

The more I know about wine, the more I realize how astoundingly complex it is — and how much more I need to know.

I’ve made an informal 50-year study of dozens of wine topics. I know the basics of organoleptics, chemistry, vines, soils, varietal distinction, fermentation science, and perhaps most important of all, winery sanitation.

Dan Berger On Wine: Demonizing wine

Most people agree that one outcome of the 1919-1933 Prohibition period was that it did a grave disservice to the cause of temperance.

In fact, that very sentiment was expressed by President Abraham Lincoln long ago after a 19th century anti-alcohol crusade swept the nation – a movement that eventually died for lack of a quorum. When Prohibition finally was imposed, it instantly created problems many people never envisioned.
