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

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.

Golden Vines applicants – Aki Sudo

Golden Vines applicants – Aki Sudo

I was born in Shizuoka prefecture in central coastal Japan. This prefecture is well known for tea cultivation. Growing up in Shizuoka, I was always fascinated by the unique aroma of Japanese tea – fresh green tea (Sen-cha), roasted green tea (Houji-cha) etc. It elevated my sense of smell. As a beginner, I didnʼt have any problem detecting the characteristics of wine and I could take all the sommelier examinations in Japan. But as I study more, I think this was extremely intuitive. Now I feel that I need to reach conclusions more theoretically. The key is to follow the ‘deductive tasting format’.

The Song Of The Bard

One of the amusements of social media is that you get to see celebrities from unrelated fields fighting. A prominent sub-genre is athletes telling non-athletes off. If the latter is an unsympathetic figure, the moment is particularly delicious. Few things are more fun than seeing an annoying loudmouth get his comeuppance.

Demystifying Wine: The Five Wine Pillars

Demystifying wine is essential today as it has always been… perhaps much more important today than at any other time in the past. The world of variety, region and style is as complicated and misunderstood as it has always been and instead of wine becoming less demystified it is still in the complex and mystified strata.

“It’s like the holy grail, to make wines that age that you can enjoy 20, 30 or 40 years later,” says Rick Small, who founded Woodward Canyon Winery with his wife Darcey in Lowden, Washington in 1981. Since then, the pair have created some of Washington State’s most ageworthy wines, with their children Jordan Dunn-Small and Sager Small recently taking the helm.
