In the San Francisco Chronicle, Esther Mobley looks at how Atlas Wine Co. wants to revolutionize grocery store wine. “Anti-elitist bents can feel tired — “give the people what they want” easily becomes an excuse for making a bad product — but Remy makes a persuasive case. The Atlas wines stand as a meaningfully better alternative than other California wines of equivalent price.”

Wines & Vines reports that a 6,100-acre property that is up for sale could change the face of Walla Walla Valley. “Conservative estimates based on topography suggest the property could support at least 1,600 vineyard acres, but water rights attached to the property could support more than 4,000 acres of vineyard.”

“Power, it seems, makes great headlines, but serious readers may stick with the story longer when complexity rises above strength.” In Wine Enthusiast, Matt Kettman explores whether wines from Central California wines are better when complexity rises above strength.

Jancis Robinson goes looking for value in vintage Champagne.

Grape Collective talks to Johannes Selbach about the challenges and great potential of the Finger Lakes, as well as what makes the Mosel the spiritual home of Riesling.

While there isn’t much crossover between cannabis and wine yet, there are plenty of parallels. Liza B. Zimmerman compares the two industries in Wine-Searcher.

In Bon Appétit, Belle Cushing talks natural wine with Isabelle Legeron.

Bon Appétit also names Château de Béru the “one natural wine you’ve got to try right now.”
