     Madame Pommery changed how we drink Champagne today
    Raise a toast to Madame Pommery next time you have something sparkling in the glass. For it was she, one of the great Champagne widows of the 19th century, who steered the world's taste in sparkling wine from sweet to drier styles — a preference...
  • Three stops for tastings on a Malibu wine tour

    Three stops for tastings on a Malibu wine tour
    Just three Malibu wineries have tastings rooms open on a regular basis right now. Bring a sweater or jacket (even in summer, the breeze can be chilly in the late afternoon) and, if you can, a designated driver. The charge for a flight of small pours of...
  • Vineyards soak up the sun in the 'Napa-bu' hills

    Vineyards soak up the sun in the 'Napa-bu' hills
    Not everyone can own a swell ranch on Point Dume with views of the Pacific or call a double-wide in one of those sun-drenched Malibu trailer parks home. For surfers and hikers, Malibu is paradise. And if you don't like the beach and aren't into shopping...

    5 wines to pick up for dinner from Costco
    Out of time and can’t get to your local wine shop to pick up a few bottles for dinner? If you're already at Costco — buying shrimp or a skirt steak or even a storage shed — you could head to the wine section for one of these bottles,...
  • Viognier rides wave of record vineyard growth into your glass

     Viognier rides wave of record vineyard growth into your glass
    In the beginning, wine was like ice cream; there was only chocolate and vanilla — aka cabernet sauvignon and chardonnay. When people wanted a red wine, they asked for cabernet. When they wanted white wine, for chardonnay. This lasted for years....

  • What wine pairs with lamb? Tempranillo from Spain's Ribera del Duero

    What wine pairs with lamb? Tempranillo from Spain's Ribera del Duero
    In Spain, eating lamb, and especially milk-fed and suckling lamb, is practically a religion. Usually it's quartered and roasted in a big terra cotta cazuela in a dome-shaped, wood-burning oven, emerging so tender you can cut the meat with a spoon. That'...
  • Dining out: Excellent Parisian fare at Grapes well worth the wait

    Dining out: Excellent Parisian fare at Grapes well worth the wait
    Not much shocks me anymore, but I have to say that finding a table at Grapes Wine Bar on a Friday night (they don't take reservations) was a jaw-dropper. Of course, it was the only empty table in the place. But not wanting to look a gift horse in the...
