Garnacha Masterclass conducted by Norrel Robertson MW

Since writing The wines of Roussillon, I have become much more aware of the qualities of Grenache, or rather Garnacha as a grape variety, so to continue the exploration further, south of the border, I took the opportunity to listen to Norrel Robertson presenting a Masterclass on Garnacha, to give its Spanish name.

The Ancient Origins of Beer Geeks and Wine Snobs

If you’re into wine or beer, you’ve likely come across a few “wine snobs” or “beer geeks.” While they might seem like a modern phenomenon, millennia of evidence proves otherwise. But like everything in history, it depends on where you look.

The New Rules of Wine Glasses? There are No Rules.

Stephanie Summerson Hall’s earliest childhood memories are soaked in a kaleidoscope of color. Hall’s grandmother, Estelle, was an avid collector of Depression-era glassware. At her South Carolina home, Estelle’s heirlooms sat perched in two china cabinets until ripe for picking on holidays and Sunday dinners when she’d honor those who gathered with a feast served in sparkling emerald green- and amber-colored glassware.

Grenaches du Monde 2021 : ma sélection de médailles d’or

Grenaches du Monde 2021 : ma sélection de médailles d’or

Pour rappel, Grenaches du Monde est un Concours annuel ouvert à tous les vins issus majoritairement de grenache, sans restriction de couleur, d’origine ou de nationalité. J’y participe toujours avec beaucoup de plaisir, d’abord parce que j’aime énormément ce cépage, ensuite parce que l’ambiance y est toujours très chaleureuse et amicale. Mais surtout, il faut reconnaître qu’au fil des ans, ce concours a largement contribué à changer l’image de ce cépage et a permis de mieux en saisir ses grandes expressions.
