Birthday Fun @ at Corcoran Vineyards

When service is spelled stupid (trials & tribulations of restaurant wine professionals in other restaurants)



We knew things would get rough early in 2009 when we read about the poor slobs on Wall Street taking 50% cuts in their million dollar bonuses. Which meant the working stiffs on Main Street making $50 to $150 grand a year – no matter how you slice it, the real bread and butter of our industry – would be the ones to actually eat it.





We've been talking a lot, lately, about that quaint old… Continue

A couple of months ago I was intrigued after reading the New York Times article about Spätburgunder, Germany's Pinot Noir. I went on the hunt and called several wine merchants but sadly, none had any on hand. I heard about a small shop along San Francisco's Embarcadero and thought… Continue

South Beach Wine & Food Festival - Wine

He was the second person in history to complete both exams and sixteen years later he is still one of only three people in the world to have achieved both these… Continue
