Tim James: Does terroir matter?
15 March 2019 19:08
A matter of wider interest emerged from my piece about the worrying state of the Stellenbosch Wine of Origin structure, prompted by a Dutch sommelier’s excellent dissertation on the subject. I mentioned that the discussion about wards had not been derailed by questions about whether estates and their marketers want the damn things anyway. Not put off, a professional brandsman (?), Jeremy Sampson, asked in a comment: “So what?” Rather, he said provocatively, “put time and energy into reducing, not adding to, the fragmentation and building up the reputation of South African wine as a whole”.

Wat drinken wij nu?

Alhier in het glas een Z.A wijn van Mullineux, de Granite 2010 Syrah.
Keurige 13% wijn, en blind zou niemand zeggen : dit is een Z.A. wijn. Hoe die familie dit doet? 92 H.P. en de kans dat u deze wijn nog ergens tegen komt is vrij minimaal, slechts 80 kistjes van gemaakt >grinning smiley<
Chris Albrecht, winemaker at Bouchard Finlayson continues the legacy of bottling vinous wonders in the Hemel-en-Aarde
28 August 2019 18:51
Magic is a difficult thing to define. It’s a feeling that runs up your spine and all your senses light up; scents become keener, your eyes open wider. Bushmans Kloof Wilderness Reserve is a place drenched in the stuff, from the bowl of sky above, cut at night with crystal stars, to the silent and stoic sandstone rock formations of the surrounding Cederberg.

Michael Fridjhon: More on the aesthetics of ultra-premium red wines
13 June 2019 11:52
Christian Eedes, editor of this site, never opens a can without expecting to release a few worms. It’s his job to prod corns and bruises, to light firecrackers next to sleeping lions. Years of doing this has taught him to know how and where to nudge. When he suggested recently that maybe we need to re-think our aesthetics when it comes to ultra-premium wines (see here), he was both stating the obvious, but also suggesting that producers and wine marketers might be missing a trick. I suspect ...

Michael Fridjhon: Wine score devaluation and its implications
29 May 2019 19:22
Unsurprisingly, the announcement by Winemag of the results of the Prescient Cabernet Report (which saw almost half of the 94 entries scoring 90 points or more) produced a flutter of commentary in the Twittersphere (see here). Winemag chose to attribute this incontrovertible evidence of ratings devaluation to the “explosion” in quality in the category. I chose to call it score inflation/bracket creep.

The History of Oregon Pinot Noir: The Ken Wright Interview
27 February 2019 19:30
Oregon's Willamette Valley has become one of America's leading wine-producing regions. With more than 20,000 acres of vineyards and over 400 bonded winemakers, this AVA has come a long way since the first Pinot Noir vines were planted back in 1965 by David Lett of Eyrie Vineyards. Pinot Noir, of course, is the predominant wine produced in Willamette Valley, having found a special place in the challenging, cool climate of Oregon. The mid-1980s were kind to Willamette Valley, and its Pinot Noirs began to receive the recognition they deserved. The world took notice of their quality, and Oregon was soon trailing behind Burgundy.

Mijn liefde voor wijn is begonnen met één glas Sancerre.
En dat is dit jaar precies 30 jaar geleden!
Vergeet het moment nooit, eerste avond van een wijncursus.
Werd “gedwongen” om daar aan deel te nemen, goede kennis begon een wijnbedrijfje en ging ook cursussen geven.
Ik zat in het proefkonijnenklasje....

Als ik mag kiezen tussen Sauvignon Blancs van over de hele wereld kies ik toch altijd Frankrijk.
Mooiste ooit gedronken is en blijft Domaine Didier Dagueneau Silex, echt fantastisch.

Winemaking From Start to Finish (Told in Pictures)
31 January 2019 19:18
The craft of winemaking has inspired hundreds of thousands of people to leave city life for the country. For many, having a winery is a life-long dream. On the surface, winemaking looks simple enough: you gather grapes, throw them in a tank, and then wait. After some time has passed, “voila!” You have wine.

Tasmanian wine producers look to a warmer future

A few hundred meters from the Tasman highway, Glenn and Sandy Travers attend to their vineyard. Craigie Knowe is situated on Tasmania’s Freycinet coast near Wineglass Bay, a spectacular inlet secluded in the island’s eastern hills. Today, Sandy has been out working on the vines, as Poppy, the vineyard dog, lounges in the shade in the winery’s outdoor picnic area.

Rebuilding Wine Country, Eight Cottages at a Time

It happened in a matter of hours. When the Wine Country fires started in California the night of October 9, 2017, they rushed over 30 miles of canyons, from Calistoga west into the hills, exploding in the Fountaingrove neighborhood of Santa Rosa just after midnight. By morning, the neighborhood was gone, all but two houses burned by the fires.
