Fortune smiles on the bold in Bierzo Alto. @grblanco898's minimal-intervention, ancient field-blended Casa Aurora wines come from vineyards that our maverick hero painstakingly rehabilitates by hand like this one -- which once belonged to his Abuela Aurora.

TESTIMONIALI have been tasting and drinking and selling the Pinot Blancs made by Hansjorg Rebholz for a decade now, from vintages stretching back twice as far, and I will attest with naked honesty (and admittedly contrarian glee) that I have enjoyed them and wondered at them in their mature versions more than ANY dry white wines I have ever tasted. The Rebholz Weisserburgunder GG Im Sonnenschein—his top cuvee which he picks from a grand cru of 250 million year old limestone—is carved like an ivory Chinese devotional, infinitesimally detailed, burnished by smoke and ...
I worked in a wine store on New York’s upper west side in the 1990s. It was called Nancy’s Wines For Food and I learned the wine trade there by working my way up from cellar rat to manager. The original wine buyer was Willie Gluckstern. Given the personnel, it won’t surprise anyone to know that we had the largest selection of German wines in New York, over 100 of them at our peak. A lot of it was Terry Theise wine, thanks in large part to the efforts of David Bowler at Skurnik. Rudi Wiest’s wines did not have a large presence in New York in those days (unlike today, ...
VITTORIA, Sicily — The red wines made in the vicinity of this midsize town in southeastern Sicily can be elegant and beautiful, with a crunchy freshness and a reticent austerity. They can be intriguingly mineral, gorgeously perfumed and astonishingly pure, while still displaying rich, focused fruit flavors. They offer a lot to love.... read more ...
From Chablis Gets the Côte de Beaune Treatment from Mother Nature, July 2016by Stephen Tanzer"...Négociant Patrick Piuze, who offers a very full range of Chablis bottlings from village to grand cru, told me his 2015s were already tender wines and should make for “a good commercial vintage, in between 2009 and 2011 in style.” Piuze, who is able to choose his harvest dates and picks by hand with his own team, began in Courgis and Fyé on the afternoon of September 1, barely 12 hours after the hailstorm at 1:30 that morning; he brought in his top hailed- ...

In his most recent "Drinking Out Loud" column at Wine Spectator, Matt Kramer describes a Canary Island education that started with a complete tabula rasa. "It was just a handful of years ago that Canary Island wines were unknown and unseen in America. I certainly knew nothing about them," he writes. "Then the wines began to trickle in, sporting obscure varietal names such as Listán Negro, Listán Blanco, Negramoll, Vijariego, Marmajuelo and Tintilla, among others. The producers’ names were equally unfamiliar. Even with the labels in full view it was, at least for ...

Nusserhof, located in the center of Bolzano in the Südtirol, squeezed between the Adige river and the A22 highway, is a tiny 4 hectare estate specializing in local grape varieties such as Lagrein, Teroldego, Schiava and Blatterle. The family have been farmers in the area since 1788 and the city has literally grown around them. What used to be farmland is now industry and their estate is a little patch of green alongside the river.The estate is well-known not only for its wine but because of the family history.  Josef Mayr-Nusser (27 December 1910 - 24 February 1945) was an Italian Roman ...
