  • Old Arse French Vines

    For those of you who've never had the chance to see one of these up close, here's what it looks like. I found this particular old vine at Chateau Haut Bailly while traveling in Bordeaux. Chateau Haut Bailly uses wine from their oldest vines (pictured below) to benchmark all of the othe...

  • Pimpin' My Furniture

    I've been getting a lot of questions about it lately, so I figure I owe everyone a good explanation... One of the hardest things about being a blogger is figuring out how to turn your passion into a career. Notice I didn't say "job". To me a "job" is something someone HAS to pay ...

  • How NOT to Blog about Wine

    I spend a lot of time thinking. I think about what makes wine taste good... I think about what I enjoy reading... and I think about what other people enjoy reading about wine. Like all well planned quests for knowledgesearches, my search for information about wine began on the internet. Not only i...

  • Working the Wine Room

    Despite the fact that I should have been getting ready for my trip, I took a break last night. Meeting up in Orlando with two fellow wine bloggers made for a perfect pre-vacation pastime. In attendance: Frank Morgan from DrinkWhatYouLike, Brian Kirby from The Other 46, and a great selection of w...
