THE OREGON WINE WEEK THAT WAS

What an insane, wonderful week of wine and food it was in Oregon. Huge Salud auction tasting at Domaine Drouhin Oregon. Two parties/events at R. Stuart & Co. in McMinnville. A visit with Stoller wines. And Gino Cuneo, one of my favorite small indie winemakers, appears like a mirage on a back road.

I, too, am generally bored by people recounting every sip and bite they had, but I think this one constitutes a snapshot of what's happening in Oregon these days. It's all…

SARAH POWELL WINE

I had an odd experience of reaching back through time this week when Jeff at the NW Wine Bar in McMinnville poured a glass of '05 Sarah Powell Syrah. Nice fruit, nice structure, and a nice buy at $20. But then I wondered who Sarah Powell was; thought I knew most of the winemakers, even small producers in Oregon. And found out through some research that she was a winemaker in southern Oregon who rose through the ranks and became a founding winemaker (and partner, I believe) at RoxyAnn in Medford… Continue

The Rise & Fall of Kluge Estate Winery

A sad situation in Virginia wine country via Wines & Vines.



Charlottesville, Va. -- There’s an old joke that the best way to make a small fortune in the wine industry is to start with a large one. Sometimes even having a pocket full of dollars doesn’t guarantee that a winery will make a go of… Continue

Italian Wine Varietals

If you’ve ever studied an Italian bottle of wine, you may have noticed some letters like DOC, DOCG, IGT or VdT. These letters are used in Italy’s designation system and will give some insight into the quality and origin of the wine. This system is similar to the French classification system, formed during a time when Italian wine was known as cheaper and of lesser quality. The same cannot be said today; though the system may be confusing, it has led to high quality and a vast selection of…

Fabbioli Cellars, Leesburg Virginia

Ken Wright on Claret, and more on Oregonwine.com

Ken Wright says that he makes claret because it's the opposite of making single-vineyard Pinot Noir (which he's not bad at, either): The sum is far better than the individual parts. Read his thoughts and all of our stories on Oregon winemakers, wines and wine country travel by checking out our new Table of Contents at www.btwowine.blogspot.com. Cheers!
