Meadowood Napa Valley

On Wednesday at the Wine Writers Symposium, we learned that the sommelier and head chef from the three-Michelin starred Meadowood believe that “there’s such thing” as a perfect pairing of food and wine. For both men, a perfect pairing involves one bottle — enjoyed and contemplated over several hours. On his blog, Blake Gray writes a great post on this topic.

“More Americans than ever before are drinking wine at least once a monthly.”

Will Virginia wine drinkers “soon see a Trump Estate Cabernet Sauvignon Cuvée The Donald?” I hope so.

A good piece on wine additives from Oliver Styles. His conclusion: “I have the occasional rant about Natural Wine but one of its hugely beneficial sides isn’t that it’s a dogma or group, but that it is made by people – individuals – who set themselves up to be accountable for the wine they produce. It tends to strip away a lot of needless things.”

Democratic lawmakers in Pennsylvania push back against efforts to privatize the state’s liquor stores.
