  • Cabernet Franc wines from France, Napa and Columbia Valley

  • Baseball, booze and a send-off

    SO THE Blue Jay Sluggers cap their undefeated season -- no wins, no losses, 14 ties -- with a party in the park. It's a lavish display befitting today's modern athlete: food, gifts and groupies (in this case, the boys' moms). "Want some lemonade?" one of...

    NAPA Valley lost a charismatic leader when Robert Mondavi died on Friday. Has the Napa Valley that fostered such a maverick passed as well? Mondavi's Napa was the Wild West of winemaking. For the dozen wineries in operation in 1966, costs were low, there...
  • Coffee's trained tasters know their beans and brews

    Dora Jaramillo slides off the top of a wooden box to reveal 36 numbered vials of "perfume." Each number in the kit corresponds to a different aroma commonly found in coffee, some positive (lemon and butter) and some not so positive (medicinal and rubber)....
  • Meltdown in your wineglass?

    THE "post-classic" era of winemaking is dawning, according to experts at the second Climate Change & Wine conference in Barcelona, Spain, at the end of last week. And it's going to be full of nasty surprises. What might "post-classic" wine be like?...

    A wine label overhaul: Meet the man who'd change your AVA
    IN a small, windowless laboratory -- far removed from romantic vineyard vistas -- scientists at the U.S. Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau (TTB) are attempting what most wine lovers would say is impossible. They are developing a test for terroir,...
  • Walla Walla wineries: a place for exciting reds

    Last summer, local winemaker David "Merf" Merfeld, of Northstar Winery threw a party at his home here in the southeastern quadrant of Washington state. It's fair to say that close to half of the town's young winemakers were crowded into Merfeld's...
  • A Champagne (or sparkling wine) for every occasion

    A Champagne (or sparkling wine) for every occasion
    Let's agree to set aside the grim recessionary landscape for the moment: The time has come for bubbles. There is simply nothing like a glass of sparkling wine to set this season apart. Welcoming, smile-inducing, instantly festive, bubbles give every...
