Perfect summary @rajatparr ! We think theyre some of the best too #repost @alwin_jurtschitsch and his wife Stefanie are the best young producer in Austria. In a tasting, Jurtschitschs wines blew us away. His Rieslings from Loiserberg and Heiligenstein are penetrating, lasting, and intense. Thrilling in their edge and precision, they vibrate on the tongue and sides of the mouth. The Heiligenstein Riesling is a showstopper, but we have to call out the brilliant Gruner Veltliners at this estate, too. #theatlasoftaste - : @joe_woodhouse - #bowlerwine #austria #repost

Find yourself a bottle of Verdicchio this weekend to enjoy while reading @lettie.teagues @wallstreet_journal article on arguably Italys greatest native white grape variety. Our very own @this_is_kruss of @bowler_italia and Leopardo at @andreafeliciboutiquewinery are quoted! And Felicis Castilli di Jesi Superiore is named a particularly pleasing and well-priced example of the grape...but you already knew that.

It finally feels like summer in New York City. Time to pop a bottle of the very tasty 2017 vintage of @bodegabermejos white hot rosado. Link to @jbonnes full article in @punch_drink in profile. Los Bermejos: Sure, Spains Canary Islands are so hot right now, but this property on the easternmost island of Lanzarote has been making exceptional rosado since well before it was a must-have, harnessing the indigenous listn negro grape. Candidly, this has been Team PUNCHs go-to pink wine for years.
  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 ...
2013 German Vintage Report  By Evan Spingarn, German Brand Manager at DBW I just attended the VDP Mainzer Weinborse (the annual tasting in Mainz, Germany of the top 200 growers in the country) and made a few key visits to winemakers in the Rheingau, Rheinhessen and Nahe. Here are my raw, earliest observations to share with you about the decidedly wacky 2013 vintage. Remember 2010? Get ready for its short, nervy, slightly A.D.D. younger brother. The main things for which the 2013 vintage will be remembered are its precipitously low yields and ragingly HIGH ACID. You can’t taste a ...

David Bowler Wine is very excited to announce that beginning in January, we will be distributing the famed Andrew Will wines from Washington state. Coincidentally, just as we firmed up this new partnership we were delighted to see that John Gilman, in his most recent issue of View From the Cellar, had written a wonderful piece about Andrew Will Cellars entitled, "Andrew Will Cellars-America's Answer to Chateau Cheval Blanc".  Whether you know these wines and their story well or not, this piece is well worth a read, so with John Gilman's permission we are ...
