Winemakers Must Come Clean

|

Interesting, refreshing article about "post modern" wine making:

"Almost everybody uses [modern] technology, but they want to be seen as on the artisanal side," Smith says. "That's why we all 'do the minimum,' whatever the hell that is. It's an illusion, and we've worked very hard to create it. I'm offering an alternative that we just be straight with people."

Smith's new book, "Postmodern Winemaking," is an occasionally dense text studded with moments of poetry. He can go deeply into the molecular changes in wine and the methods that cause them. And his embrace of wines is inclusive; on the phone, he bristles at the idea that wines with less oak flavor could be considered "better."


Coming up soon - 43rd Edition, September 5th to 8th, 2013!

Stefano Amerighi Syrah spotted in NY State

At a great little Italian restaurant run by Francesco Buitoni (yes, sono buoni!) in Red Hook (Dutchess Co.) we were surprised to see the Stefano Amerighi Syrah from Cortona on the wine list!

A little pricey at $70 a bottle, but good to know it is there if we need it.

Wine Town Firenze 2013

Wine Town 2013

There is a new edition of Wine Town Firenze happening this May 17th and 18th. We have written about this event before, but this edition seems very organized, and their website is up to date, with maps and information (unfortunately, it seems to be only in Italian at the moment however).

This event works with a charged card (you buy an initial card for 15 euro that has 5 points on it) and you can refill the card as needed. Some wineries charge several points for their wines, but there are plenty that are a single point or two. It is also usually more than just a taste - it is a small glass of wine to enjoy at the various events and "palazzi" - where there is usually music and some other types of performances going on.

And of course, there is always some kind of food to be found! Here are some photos from past editions:
