JANUARY 29. GREAT POSTS FROM FOOD AND WINE BLOGS REVIEW
1 GRAPE EXPERIENCES
A story of Paso Robles winemakers family, their answers about the land the work on, their estate and wines.
2. DESERT WINE GUY
He tells a very details story about 2006 Firestone Vineyards merlot. The story worth reading, especially the part concerning his tasting notes – very personal
3. SICILY WINES
John Fodera started the series of posts about Sicily wines. This is going to BE very interesting, Sicily in addition to great Nero d’Avola and Insoglia varieties is the land where unique Etna terroir is located.
Susannah Gold in her Avvinare blog gives a review of biodynamic Cremant d'Alsace from Domaine Mittnacht Freres. I would really love to taste it – the main variety in this Cremant is Auxerrois, which always makes the tasting experience very promising.
5. Out of this last wine reviews made by Tom Lee in ZINFANDEL CHRONICLES
I like the most the notes about 2013 Outpost Grenache. The wine looks very solid and thus worth of being placed to the list for future tastings.
6. Stuart in his WINE THE DIME video blog
make lots of video reviews of fresh affordable wines, mostly vintages of 2016-2017. I like especially his two reviews of two white wines – a 2017 Mckahn Family Cellars Vioner and same year Benjamin Darnault Pays d’Oc Chardonnay.
7. ‘Every year on the third Wednesday in January, at five-o’clock sharp, there’s a party in the charming Swiss city of Neuchâtel’ – this is how guys from Swiss blog ARTISANSWISS begin their last post about the unique event Chassellas Non Filtre. I highly recommend to read this post. As well as their other article concerning the Swiss wines and wine industry.
8. THE WINE DAILY
Provides everybody with the extended list of Wine Races and Runs for 2019. Frankly speaking, to me personally wine and running exist in a kind of separated worlds, but in this rapidly changing world I might well be in minority now. Anyway, the info here does not limited with running-related themes, so it worth checking it.
A great article by Randall Grahm Requiem for a Flying Cigare. A creator of remarkable wine tells the story why he decided to say good-bye to famous Le Cigare Volant.
