The region rightfully claims the title “Birthplace of Wine.” And, as wine drinkers in the US become pickier and more educated, they are seeking out a wine’s history. Finally, history and tradition has become another decisive factor on whether to drink a certain wine (like place, producers, and most importantly--taste).

Featured: Vouette and Sorbée's Bio-dynamism!

Terrior is fun for wine geeks to talk about. But it really comes down to this: Betrand’s careful attention is what makes his wine so singular and expressive. The very same vibrancy and life that is in the soil, comes through in the Champagne you drink. Isn’t that why we all drink wine in the first place?

Meet the New Matriarchs of Barolo: Piera and Paola Rinaldi

We try to share these special events with you as often as possible. And just last Friday we had a great one! Many of our friends and neighbors joined us to taste with Paola Rinaldi, the winemaker at Barolo’s Francesco Rinaldi e Figli. It was magical.

FEATURED: Oddero's Glowing '16 Langhe Nebbiolo

Welcome to a new weekly blog series! Here, we will take an even deeper dive into one of our favorite wine stories of the week. A shorter version of this story was featured in our newsletter just yesterday.

Today's featured wine: The 2016 Langhe Nebbiolo from Luigi Oddero.

To put it simply: this wine is nearly Barolo, in quality, if not in name. You’re bound to regret it if you don’t stock up now!

Root for the 9ers with these Kickass Super Bowl Pairings

Root for the 9ers with these Kickass Super Bowl Pairings

It’s clear wine is in. This is certainly true on the biggest Sunday of the year. Leave the Miller lite to your buddy, instead bring something that you know will please a crowd. And, if we’re going to drink wine while watching the game (or just the halftime show), why not choose wines to pair with the most popular game day food

Classic Super Bowl spreads are the greatest hits of American comfort and fast food. It’s Thanksgiving for snacks: pizza, chicken wings, nachos, chili dogs and pretzels.
