Hurricane Sandy Sippers

Since we were kind of holed up in the house Monday and Tuesday while Hurricane Sandy held sway, it seemed like a good time to open a couple of the not for every day wines. They do like it when they get to come out and play, so everyone was happy. We were fortunate to

Large Format Bottles

Me and Dbl Mag

I love large format bottles – not for everyday, but for special occasions they are cool. They’re also great to bring to parties. Some of them. Others are so big they are the party. There’s an article on the different large format sizes under the “Why Some Wine Knowledge” page.

This is a picture of

A Tasting at Stonington Vineyards

Stonington Oct 2012 Pic

On October 6, 2012, Cheri, myself and our son Alex stopped by Stonington Vineyards for a tasting. We’ve been visiting this winery since 1998. I interviewed the owner, Nick Smith, back in 1998 for my Study of the England Wine Industry, my major MBA project. Nick was very gracious and talked with me for a

Grape Picking Time

Looking back at the winery through the vineyard.

 

What better to do on a bright, perfect fall day in New England than pick some wine grapes? Seemed like the thing to do to me, so when we got the email from Saltwater Farm in Stonington, CT, I decided to take a half day of vacation time from work and do something I’ve

Aglianico Anyone?

Last night we opened a bottle of 2007 Titolo. This is an Aglianico del Vulture, which I had only tried once before but took a shot at since the price seemed right and it had some pretty solid ratings. Both Cheri and I agree that this is a very, very good wine. The nose is

Wines of the Week Oct 1-7 2012

Just a quick note on a couple of wines we opened this week. First a 2009 Charles Krug Cabernet from Napa Valley. This was very good. Nice red fruit, good body and length. It’s still a little young, and the tannins will integrate with time in the bottle, or in the decanter. It was very

A Good New England Red

We opened our last bottle of the 2008 Chamard Vineyards Merlot this weekend. This is a really good bottle of red wine from somewhere north of Long Island. It’s really not very far north of Long Island, being in Clinton near the southern coast of Connecticut, but it is a true New England winery, and
