We’re going to be taking a virtual wine tour of France for a while here at Red Wine Please!, and the first installment featured some excellent Vouvrays. For this article we travel just a bit east of Vouvray, still along the river, to the commune of Montrichard. We also switch grapes, from the Chenin Blanc

This past weekend we were at the 2016 Boston Wine Expo for the Sunday Grand Tasting. It was the coldest day in Boston in 60 years, but at least it wasn’t a driving blizzard like last year, when the Sunday event were cancelled. This time we made it. We weren’t quite sure what to expect,

A Must Buy, Value Cabernet from Chile

As we have said before, one of the greatest things that happens in wine is when you find one that costs far below what it should. These happen occasionally, you just have to find them, or stumble across them. We are happy to report on one of those rare bottles here, and this one found

Finding good Pinot Noir under $20 can be difficult. We’ve highlighted a few recently, and here is another one which is actually likely to run you under $15. This is a good thing when it happens. Let’s take a look:

A Great Jazz Weekend in Old Lyme, CT

Bill Charlap Trio

We were looking for something to do that was 1: new for us, 2: lots of fun and 3: relaxing at the same time. That’s not a very easy list of things to satisfy at the same time. It would also help if it was not too far from home and didn’t cost an arm
