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 ...
“Porter Creek is like a snapshot from Pinot's past… The approach Davis takes is the opposite of the modern style; it's nuanced, pure in its fruit and informed by his time in some of Burgundy's greatest cellars. It harks back to a much defter view of what Russian River could yield.”  -Jon Bonné, San Francisco Chronicle Certain things make me nostalgic; one such thing is film. Actual film. Not because I think digital photos are missing anything necessarily—I’ve seen plenty of lousy photos from both mediums and I’m honestly not sure I ...

Two of our wines were amongst the top selections in the recent “Wine Without Walls” competition at Vinitaly this year. This is a new competition that was established by Alice Feiring, who was one of the judges. The competition focused on natural wines. The other judges were Pascaline Lepeltier from Rouge Tomate, Diego Sorba from Tabarro, Pietro Vergano from Convivium and Mike Bennie—consultant and writer. To be eligible the wine had to be organic and have no additives or adjustments--except minimal So2.   Our two wines were:·      ...
  Among the few industries in the United States that have survived all the shifts in generations, technology, fashion, social change, wars, industrial advances, collapse, and rebirth, few have done so as well as wine. The first Europeans to explore the United States around 1000, Vikings, called it Vinland due to the incredible quantity of grapes they found growing there.  In the 1560’s, French Huguenots made the first recorded wines, in what would now be Jacksonville, Florida. The early colonies in Virginia and the Carolinas included winemaking as a goal in their charters ...
The Fifty Best held a “blind” tasting of 20 reposado tequilas with a panel of 17 judges. Strict tasting rules were applied, and the scoring was done on a 5-point system, with 5 as the best. Double-Gold, Gold and Silver medals are awarded according to a set range of final point scores received from the judges. Take a look at which Tequila is at the top of the list!   ...

Old Hill Ranch is a special haven of California’s history. Planted in the mid 1800’s, it is in the running for the oldest vineyard in Sonoma. It has been dry-farmed, organically farmed, and meticulously preserved by the Bucklin family over the most recent decades of its long life.   ...
German Pinot Noir (a.k.a., Spätburgunder) has been receiving attention from many quarters lately, some within the trade (Jancis Robinson, John Gilman, Tyler Coleman, Jon Bonné), and some in the mainstream (Forbes Magazine’s #1 trending wine topic for 2016). At a time when Burgundy prices have skyrocketed out of reach for many consumers and American Pinots seem to be following suit, Germany is suddenly looking like an untapped goldmine of well-made, well-priced, terroir-driven Pinot. What are the salient characteristics of German Pinot, versus its American and ...

The top of Pico del Ingles on Tenerife, with a view of the Atlantic. Close your eyes. Imagine standing on one of the world’s largest volcanoes, wiggling its black volcanic sand between your toes and looking out over the expanse of blue ocean before you… all while tasting wine from grapes that are planted nowhere else in the world, all grown on 100% Pie Franco rootstocks. Where on earth could such a fantastical vignette take place? There’s only one place: the Canary Islands. Known to Homer as Elysium and to the explorers of the Age of Exploration as the last place to ...
