Huge congratulations to Rose’s Luxury, which was just named the hottest new restaurant in the country by Bon Appétit. (If you follow me on Instagram, you’ll know I dine there way too frequently!)

Jeremy Parzen reports on the passing of Friulian winemaker Paolo Rapuzzi, founder of Ronchi di Cialla.

Lily-Elaine Hawk Wakawaka remembers Rapuzzi as the rescuer of Schioppettino.

Due to “harsh winter weather conditions,” New York wineries will be allowed to “purchase grapes grown outside of New York State” this year. Watch out for trucks in the Finger Lakes.

On Long Island, the wine is getting better and better.

In Wine Spectator, Matt Kramer praises the “wines you feel strongly about, never mind the reason.”

On JancisRobinson.com (subscription req.), Alder Yarrow laments “the (still) dismal state of California Chardonnay.”

DC wine drinkers should soon be able to order wine — for delivery – on their phones.

“Forget just about everything you’ve ever read about wine and food pairing. It’s useless if you eat like most people in the western world today.” Some bold words from. W. Blake Gray.

Wine Folly offers a pragmatic approach to using wine ratings.

“Mention Mendocino wine these days, and most aficionados will think of pinot noir.” But Laurie Daniel is impressed with the Italian varieties.

  1. David, thanks for posting the link to the story on Rapuzzi. He played an often overlooked role in Italy’s current wine renaissance and his work with indigenous varieties was a model for many who came after him. Thank you.
