Wine history dating back to the middle ages, high demand for classic wines known around the world, it must be impossible to start a new winery in Burgundy, right? This is France, after all. Go to the Blue door in Savigny-lès-Beaune Impossible? No!  All you need to do is: … Continue reading

Bourgogne: Sometimes Plan “B” is the Best

Sometimes Plan “B” is the Best After a memorable morning at Morey-Coffinet in Chassagne-Montrachet, my afternoon plans were a big question mark. Lunch? Where? Running just a bit late, I found there was no room at 1 pm at the one restaurant in Volnay –  “service est terminé“. No! I headed out to RD974 (the … Continue reading

Chassagne-Montrachet and a Visit to Domaine Morey-Coffinet

Basilicata Aglianico Eruption #ItalianFWT

Basilicata Who? If there’s ever an under-the-radar Italian region, Basilicata is it. Located in the instep of the boot of Italy, it’s not a big tourism area, or an area of commerce. No big cities. Very little access to the coast.  With one exception, wines from Basilicata are not heard of or seen outside the … Continue reading

My blog's goal is to educate & inform the public about the best values among natural and authentic wines, with a focus on organic and bio-dynamic wines from the South of France & Spain. Wine reviews will be as objective as possible, and without the use of the much abused 100 pt. system - rather using specific criteria to determine the wine's typicality and authenticity, in addition to its overall quality.
