I am excited to know that bottles of Mrs. McCartney's Wines are being shipped from Kemah, TX today to a friend in Los Angeles who will be taking them to New Zealand, where it will wind up in a castle that is being converted into an Air B n B. That will hopefully be the start of a new connection, and we all know that Kiwis enjoy a nice tipple. Wish me luck. Bottoms up!
A researcher at Brock University learned that people are willing to pay as much as $2 extra per bottle if he wine has a name that's hard to pronounce, regardless of the taste. And for eight years, an Indonesian man named Rudy Kurniawan earned at least $1.3 on counterfeit wine, just by telling people that his wine was older than it really was.

To relieve stress, I do yoga. Just kidding. I drink wine dressed in my yoga pants.
It is with great sadness that I read about the number of wineries in Napa and Sonoma that have been devastated by the recent fires. My heart goes out to those folks who toil so tirelessly to bring us our California wines.
The Romans discovered that mixing led with wine not only helped preserve the wine, but also gave it a sweet taste and succulent texture. Chronic lead poisoning has often been cited as one of the causes of the decline of Rome.
When wine tasting, hold the wine in the mouth for a moment or two and then either swallow it or, preferably, spit it out, usually into a spittoon. A really good wine will have a long after taste, while an inferior wine will have a short after taste.
