143-year-old McWilliam’s Wines enters administration

McWilliams Hanwood Estate Cabernet Sauvignon McWilliam’s Wines, one of Australia’s oldest wine brands, called in administrators KPMG on 8 January. David Pitt, chief executive of the 143-year-old family company, said the business had relied too much on its long history of making lower-end commercial wines sold below $10 (£5.25), where profit margins were razor thin. McWilliam’s then missed the trend …

Top 100 Tasting Comes to NYC for the First Time: January 14th

Once per year I wax rhapsodic about what I feel is the single best publicly available one-day wine tasting event held on the West Coast, the Wine and Spirits Top 100 tasting. No other wine tasting offers quite the combination of diversity, quality of wines, great food, and stellar venue as does this annual event. For years, the wine trade …

Vinography Images: Stone Temple

Stone Temple SANTA MARIA, CA: An outcropping of white calcareous rock looms over a nearby vineyard near Santa Maria, California. Much more common in Burgundy, calcareous rocks lower the pH of the soil, generally drain very well and are thought to be particularly well suited to Pinot Noir, all of which makes such soils highly sought after in places like …

Winter Wonderland Whites: Think Wine, Regionality, Food, and Domaine Matrot Bourgogne Blanc

Winter white wines are so scrumptious, with not only dense foods, but also with lighter foods. I don’t think of them so much as seasonal, anymore; i.e., “I only drink red wines in winter and white wines in summer.”  That’s as passé as “one can’t wear white after Labor Day.” (Although, my mother is still […] Source : https://www.wine-blog.org/index.php/2020/01/12/winter-wonderland-whites-think-wine-regionality-food-and-domaine-matrot-bourgogne-blanc/

Decanter interview: Château de Saint Cosme’s Louis Barruol

‘I’m 50 this year – oh my God! At 50 you suddenly think, “I’ve passed the half-way mark”. But I don’t feel old at all.’ Neither does he look it. Barruol was playing in rugby tournaments (fly half) until the age of 48, and looks ready to receive a ball and start running at any moment. From a certain angle, …

Why evangelicals pray for World War III

I wrote last week about the paradox in Genesis and also about the Bible’s strangest book, Ecclesiastes. I ended that post by telling you I would be writing about why evangelicals are rooting for a world war that will kill millions, which they believe will bring about the return of Jesus Christ. This, too, is a paradox: why is the …

2016 Pendulum Red Blend

I didn’t know much about this wine when I popped it in the cart; mainly just going on the notion that I like big reds from Washington State and for $12.99, this one seemed like it could be a good buy. I also noticed the 92 point score from Wine Spectator that doesn’t hurt either. A quick Google search later …
