It is bad weather today, but we console ourselves with a good glass of wine 🍷

Sole o pioggia? Da noi va così, ma ci consoliamo con un buon calice di vino 🍷

An absolute beauty of a blend, #merlot and #cabernetsauvignon unite to create an intense plummy nose and a smooth as silk palate with big jammy flavours...#swoon #winestagram #instawine #wineblend #winetasting #wine #winelover #miniwinereview #vertigo #grapegeek #winenerd #liviofelluga #tryjanuary #winenot #foodandwine #winepics
Again a very special wine! Incredible complexity in this 18 years old Barolo.  Eugenio Bocchino 2000 from La Morra.

Let me start by saying, when I get the chance to try wines that have low productions, I get excited. I get really excited when they turn out to be good. The Lost Chapters 2013 Zinfandel is both. It's a classic style Zin out of Oak Knoll in Napa, 194 case production, and the artwork reminds me of something out of a Tolkien book. The nose is a reasonably fragrant mix of red fruits with a palate reminiscent of berry pie with a hint of baking spice. It's a wine that makes me want to share it with friends, and enjoy the hell out of my night. It served it's purpose well.

I had so much fun at @vinovenue 's annual "Sommelier Smackdown" Blind Tasting Competition last night 💪🏻 we tasted and scored wines along with sommeliers competing against each other. For each wine, you earned points for correctly identifying things like grape variety, vintage, country, appellation, region, etc. and the Somms with the lowest cumulative scores were eliminated each round. Going into the final matchup, the two finalists had 24 and 23 points....and I had 24 points! 🤓 Aka I would've been in the running for the title and I beat 80% of the competitors with my palate! Every time I attend wine events, however, I'm happily reminded about how much I don't know yet about wine - and that's what keeps me humbled and hooked! Maybe they will let me compete next year as the underdog former winery manager...? ☺️ #blindtasting #winepro #winegeek #winenerd #winerylife #acorkintheroad #winecompetition #winetasting #wineevents #wineeducation #winepic #winenight #winelovers #winefriends #corkdork #atlanta #atlantaevents #atlantawinescene #winestagram #wineclass #winealwayswins #partytricks

NEW EPISODE: Back in August 2017, we travelled to Niagara, Ontario in search of Icewine. Dressed very much for summer, we donned parkas and plunged ourselves into the wintery sub-zero depths of @10belowicebar to experience life as an icewine grape. Conclusion: it’s nippy. This week on the podcast, Peller Estates tell us all about the beautiful nectar that is Icewine.

THAT COLOUR. Blaufränkisch rosé from amphora. Such a complex and delicious style - still with some sugar but in perfect harmony. Incredibly pure.

This photo shows wine grapes on the vine 🍇 during the stage of turning red. In #winegeek speak this process is called ‘veraison’ (pronounced ‘verr-ray-zohn’). This ripening phase is where the grapes begin to naturally sweeten so our favourite beverage can be made 🍷 📸 Taken at @pandemoniumestate last weekend .

Another Italian variety that is doing well in special sites around Australia. Notoriously difficult to grow, it requires love and dedication to get it right. Kegs @hayshedhillwines has nailed it with this beauty! Don’t be fooled by its pale appearance. Nebbiolo is intensely perfumed, structured with layers of complexity. A beautiful wine which demands food. Available now in our current pack. Hit the link in profile above to check it out 🍷😎#drinkoutsidethebox #nebbiolo #morevino

Portuguese Franciacorta?

Távora-Varosa DOC is an All-Sparkling wine Appellation in Northern Portugal. High elevation and an extreme continental climate composed of granite terroir makes me feel like I have found a new favorite. .

"A barrel sample, the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer Dr. Crane Vineyard opens with a very deep purple-black color and intense scents of plum preserves, blueberry compote and crème de cassis with suggestions of Indian spices, Marmite toast and sautéed herbs. Big, powerful, rich and full-throttle in the mouth, the voluptuous fruit is well framed by firm, grainy tannins and just enough freshness, finishing long and spicy." - @wine_advocate.

Zinfandel has gained a reputation as California’s “heritage grape,” and this week I’m taking a look at different Zinfandel producers from all over our State. But before checking out the reviews, make sure to read about what Jancis Robinson calls the “romantic thriller” that is Zinfandel’s story.

Allineamenti astrali gastro-natural-punk di rara possanza: LA SORGA BLANC DESORDRE 2014 + Spaghetti Aliveris al germe di soia con ragù di faraona, castagne, nduja e pomodorin confit. Il negociant itinerante del Languedoc Antony Tortul, novello Ronin del verbo vinnaturista più primigenio, continua a generare vini vivi, vibranti e splendenti di luce propria come Orfini continua a pijà ceffoni appena apre bocca. 90% Chardonnay da vigne di 45 anni e 10% Mauzac da vigne di 25 in una cosmogonica entropia vinnaturista che ridona fierezza nobil-barbarica temperata da elfica eleganza allo Chardonnay.

LA SORGA BLANC DESORDRE 2014 + Soy Germ Aliveris Spaghetti  al germe di soia with ragù of wild hen, chestnust, spicy nduja and confit cherry tomatoes. The itinerant Languedoc Ronin gives yet light to a glowing gem of vinnaturist truth: 90% Chardonnay from 45 yrs old vines and 10% Mauzac from 25 yrs old ones. Buttery bananas are banished to eternal damnation here, only sharp and elvenly aetheric rays of Amalfi lemon on mountain streams flowing on pink marble in Rivendell. 🍷🔥😈👊🏻👊🏻👊🏻😈🔥🍷 #vininaturali #vinonaturale #naturalwine #vinnature #vinnaturel #vinvivant #frenchwine #lasorga #igerslanguedoc #chardonnay #winestagram #winegram #winetasting #winenight #winelover #italianfood #foodporn #italiancuisine #pasta #wineporn #winenerd #winegeek

The itinerant Languedoc Ronin gives yet light to a glowing gem of vinnaturist truth: 90% Chardonnay from 45 yrs old vines and 10% Mauzac from 25 yrs old ones. Buttery bananas are banished to eternal damnation here, only sharp and elvenly aetheric rays of Amalfi lemon on mountain streams flowing on pink marble in Rivendell. 🍷🔥😈👊🏻👊🏻👊🏻😈🔥🍷 #vininaturali  #vinonaturale  #naturalwine  #vinnature  #vinnaturel  #vinvivant  #frenchwine  #lasorga  #igerslanguedoc  #chardonnay  #winestagram  #winegram  #winetasting  #winenight  #winelover  #italianfood  #foodporn  #italiancuisine  #pasta  #wineporn  #winenerd  #winegeek 
Furiously good Ramen with pork shoulder and a Friulano from I Clivi. Ramen enough for 2 or 3 lunches @ $12. Great value. Heart-warming food. Go visit owner/chef Mitsu (formely from Sakana). He’s a pretty awesome soul.  #renegadewines #santabarbara #winenerd #sb #sommlife #winetasting #wineporn #seesb #trustyourpalate #montecito #sbcwine #seriousjuice #winetime #winegeeks #winewednesday #funkzone #centralcalifornia #foodiesofsb #zagat #craftramen

“I just selflessly rescued some wine 🍷... it was trapped in a bottle!” 😂
✅Tell me your favorite variety to set free⁉️🤣⬇️ 🍷

Here is a rustic reclaimed wood sign cut on the scroll saw. 🍷  I was inspired by @kendras_gotwood awesome hand painted wine sign she posted a couple weeks ago (go check it out!). I’m not nearly the painter she is, but I’m very happy with how this one turned out! 😉

BRUNELLO DI MONTALCINO DOCG - 2012 - IL POGGIONE. PERCHÈ CI PIACE: Ad un’altitudine compresa tra i 150 e i 450 metri sul livello del mare, nella Tenuta Il Poggione, sono allevate piante che superano anche i cinquant’anni d’età e che godono di un microclima particolarmente favorevole, grazie alla vicinanza del Tirreno e del Monte Amiata. Uve pregiate e schiette vengono lavorate nella moderna cantina, completamente rinnovata nel 2004 e dotata delle più avanzate tecnologie enologiche, impiegate sempre nel rispetto delle più antiche tradizioni locali. Il Poggione rappresenta una certezza per il territorio di Montalcino. Uno dei pochi Brunello DOCG che non delude mai: anche nelle annate più sfortunate, esce un prodotto di grande qualità, a detta nostra ma soprattutto della stampa internazionale, che lo premia costantemente con punteggi superiori ai 90/100. Da sempre, la vendemmia nella tenuta dei Franceschi è manuale. Fermentazione in acciaio e affinamento in grandi di botti di rovere per 36 mesi. Il Poggione sfoggia un Brunello meraviglioso, di magnifica impronta classica: un capolavoro da godere con un bel formaggio stagionato, bitto, stilton o montasio. Per il prezzo, da riempire la cantina. Degustiamolo: Calice rosso rubino intenso e luminoso; al naso esprime sentori di liquirizia e di amarena, con profondi rimandi di frutti di bosco e di cuoio. Il sorso sprigiona il tannino impetuoso di un sangiovese giovane e una grande concentrazione. Un vino di forza. Si accompagna a meraviglia con piatti elaborati a base di carne o cacciagione. Eccezionale con i formaggi stagionati.
PREZZO MEDIO: 40€
VOTO: 92 PUNTI

Cható Pqta, or Château Paquita, is a great wine from Mallorca that reminds me of a good Chinon. It’s briny and herbal, with just a bit of fruit in the background, lively acidity and just the right amount of funk. #chatopqta #chateaupaquita #mallorcawine #spanishwine #eloicedo #viniculture #dirtygrapes #sommlife #berlinwine #foodiesberlin #berlinwinestories #naturalwine #winetasting #wineandfood #winepairing #wineporn #winelover #naturwein #winenerd #itswork #naturpur #instawine #wineoclock #winestagram #berlin #wine4food #vinsnaturels

Bedtime lecture. Inhaling the words of Olivier Humbrecht: "To enjoy the wine, one needs to be adaptable and attentive. This adaptability needs to be in tune with the will to understand what attaches a wine to itself, to a vintage, to the unique expression of its grape variety." Interesting words from @zindhumbrecht

We did another Blind Tasting Challenge this weekend 💪🏻 to test our palates and improve our senses. I love spending time going through detailed observations of characteristics such as color, smell, taste, and viscosity for each unknown wine. I got the country and grape correct for the white - a French Chardonnay - but couldn't quite narrow it down to the appellation. With practice, I will get there! I've always had an extremely sensitive palate, and now I'm finally putting it to good use 😊 #blinddtasting #winepro #winetasting #winechallenge #redandwhite #winepic #wineme #winenotes #winenight #wineevents #winelovers #datenight #acorkintheroad #winestagram #winestudy #wineeducator #winefolly #winelife #corkdork #winenerd

Today’s featured wine is @GrgichHills 2013 Estate Zinfandel. I’m a big fan of the Napa-based winery -- especially when it comes to their bodacious reds. In this review I compare/contrast the last two vintages along with my tasting notes and a few options for food pairings. And, in honor of this week’s @zap.zinfandel event, I’ve got some Cali Zin 101 on the site and a new Zin everyday this week. Get all the Zin-tastic details at BriscoeBites.com; Direct Link: http://briscoebites.com/grgich-hills-2013-zinfandel/

We recently met up with friends at a BYO restaurant and this beauty was in the tasting line up. Introducing Hugh Hamilton’s Single Vineyard ‘Black Blood III’ 2014 Shiraz which is the third part in a three part series from this McLaren Vale winery. The series focuses on the stunning soils of the region and provides utter indulgence in a bottle. This 3rd instalment comes from the Black Sheep Vineyard.

The nose is so welcoming and warm with black & red fruits, dark chocolate brownie and dried herbs. While in the mouth it has silky smooth tannins with notes of juicy plums, bright cranberries and a dusting of spice and herbs. Not to mention the packaging was pretty darn impressive with a stunning necktie and grey & white tissue paper that resembles soil. Fancy!

All opinions are based on my own taste buds. Wine is subjective & always evolving, so make sure you drink what you enjoy! #tcweekdaywine #tctastingnotes .

Did you know that once the bottle  has been opened, most wines will last for only 3-5 days?

Today is supposedly the most miserable day of the year according to research, proper #mondayblues .
.
So I’m cheering myself up with happy #winemoments and memories from my trip to Alsace where I joined a press tour with a couple of American wine journalists from San Francisco and Napa for a tour of the Grand Cru vineyard and tasting session at the amazing Wine Legend Hugel house, hosted by Jean Frédéric Hugel.
.
Thanks so much for the hospitality and the mind blowing tasting line up... you made it very hard for me to use the spittoon! Merci 🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼

Château La Confession 2010
St-Émilion Grand Cru  3rd consistent bottle. 
Spice infused cassis and blueberry, gravel dust from the barnyard and lead pencil shavings. With time, a little fudge-like and roasted coffee aromas pop up.  Ripe and fine tannins, a string of acidity and a dollop of lingering, sour cherry fruit. 
Although being both expressively big and bold for style, this is a finely balanced claret. 
Should mature well with more time in bottle but this is drinking well as it is. 2018+ #bordeaux #bordeauxwine #saintemilion #chateaulaconfession #2010 #claret #winestagram #winenerd #winepassion #wine #wines #wineporn

Starting the week off right with #champagne from @champagnepouillon! 50/50 Chardonnay & Pinot Noir made in solera to show the full expression of the Mareuil terroir. 🍾
A champagne solera is when the winery saves a bit of wine from every vintage to the same tank. After each harvest, more wine is added to the blend. So, when you taste a wine in solera, you are having a taste of each year since the solera started (here 1997 - 2010)! 🥂
Floral, pear, dark chocolate, good weight, and bright finish. The perfect way to start the week! .

This 2004 Bourgueil was a blast. For the uninitiated, it’s a 100% Cab Franc from the Loire Valley. (Dried) strawberry fields forever, Arauco olives, bramble, infield dust, fresh cracked cinnamon, fire roasted poblanos. 
Did this with braised Provence-style lamb shanks that we fired up in the Instant Pot (yeah, we got one too). The whole thing was a hit. I know I’ve said this a zillion times: Look for wines from smaller French and Italian wine regions. Especially family owned estates. They’re not in fashion right now and you can find crazy values. This bottle was around $22.

It's chilly outside, so make sure you bring something to keep you warm. I've been impressed with Reynolds family wine since the first bottle. I remain impressed. 2012 Reynolds family reserve Cab Sauv is killer. It was great last year, and it's still great now. Probably has nother 10 years left, but I can't wait that long. The 2014 The Quote is equally ridiculous. Mostly cab with around 15% Merlot. I could drink either of these every day and be perfectly content. Great wines to take out in the woods and enjoy with a view, or just to sit and drink by the fireplace. Regardless of you're preference,  I suggest you pick some of this up.

#BlueMonday? More like red-and-white Monday at the Voodoo Rooms in Edinburgh, where wine merchant Greg Grog was holding its tasting this afternoon. I'll always have a soft spot for 'Grog because founder Richard Meadows taught me for the @wsetglobal Level 2 exam - plus he's a really nice and brainy guy. Simon was in charge of this afternoon's tasting and it was a corker, including silky petit verdot, textured pinot gris and a classic Italian winter warmer.
