Virginia moves one step closer to legalizing corkage! The bill has already passed the state House, and now just needs the governor’s signature.

In Slate, Coco Krumme analyzes wine descriptors — and finds that they might reveal more about a bottle’s price than its flavor.

A great piece on Riesling in the Finger Lakes. I still haven’t tried any, but I keep hearing good things.

Steve Heimoff gets the scoop on The Vineyard House, a new wine from Jeremy Nickel.

In the Press-Democrat, Dan Berger writes about the Vintners Hall of Fame — and offers up some names he considers “vital.”

Healdsburg is a wonderful little town. ABC News shares what is still a secret to many.

In the Washington Post, Dave McIntyre writes about Open That Bottle Night, which Dorothy Gaiter and John Brecher will cover live on Palate Press. What are you opening on Saturday?

  1. Are you kidding me? You’ve never had any FLX rieslings? Crazy man. 2009 Wiemer Late Harvest, Magdalena and HJW are world class. Sheldrake makes a great Reserve. Anthony Road is decent and Red Neat makes solid wines. Obviously K. Frank and Ravines get props but Wiemer is doing things in the vineyard and in the winery the NO ONE else is doing. Set up shop in.Watkins Glen at the south end of Seneca Lake and get it on.

  2. Bob – Thanks for the recommendation! What are you opening for OTBN?

  3. Hi!
    On Saturday I will be doing a Riesling wine tasting at the Bürklin-Wolf estate in Wachenheim, Pfalz, Germany. Riesling ten years on. Several 2001 wines will be opened. Looking forward!
    Greetings to Washington DC – a great city, I really like it!
    Cheers!
