Decanter moves to the 100-point scale.

Levi Dalton’s “I’ll Drink to That!” – a twice weekly podcast that aims to get inside of the heads of the people who make the wine industry tick — launches. The first guest? Aldo Sohm of Le Bernardin in New York City.

Huge congratulations to DC importer/retailer, First Vine, which just celebrated its 5-year anniversary. On the blog for First Vine, Tom Natan writes about the company’s fascinating history.

In Wine Spectator, Augustus Weed reports: “The University of California at Davis is conducting a new study that could help end the debate on whether screw cap closures are as effective as natural corks when it comes to aging wine.”

In Forbes, Sarah White catches up with Meadowood’s Rob Harrison, who offers “an insider’s guide to the best things to do in Wine Country this summer.”

In Palate Press, Caroline Henry wonders if we “really want to know” what’s in our wine. Dr. Vino, meanwhile, asks his readers if wine labels should include nutrition facts.

According to Wine Spectator’s Tim Fish, “the line between passion and snobbishness is razor thin.”

In the Minneapolis Star-Tribune, Bill Ward reminds us that “often we consume wines at less-than-optimal temperatures.”

Jeff Siegel offers “a few thoughts about wine with your July 4 celebration.”
