Domaine Michel Gros

Michel Gros finished his studies at Beaune Viticultural high school in 1975. He started to work with his father, Jean, on the family estate – Domaine Jean Gros. In 1978, while continuing to collaborate with his father, he set the first stone of his own domain by owning 2 hectares in the Hautes-Côtes de Nuit […]

Prager, Grüner Veltliner, Smaragd, Wachstrum Bodenstein 2017

Franz Prager, co-founder of the Vinea Wachau, had already earned a reputation for his wines when Toni Bodenstein married into the family. Bodenstein’s passion for biodiversity and old terraces, coupled with brilliant winemaking, places Prager in the highest echelon of Austrian producers. Smaragd is a designation of ripeness for dry wines used exclusively by members […]

Olivier Bernstein

Olivier Bernstein’s seven grands crus and three premiers crus have a wealth of old vines, which are fundamental to the quality of his wines.

Domaine Ramonet

Located in Burgundy, a wine growing region where terroir and sense of place are typically more important than individual winemakers, Ramonet is in a class of its own.  In fact, Ramonet Montrachet, the estate’s flagship wine, is claimed by many to be unequalled.  What is perhaps even more impressive is the story of the Ramonet […]

Domaine Blain Gagnard

Domaine Blain-Gagnard was formed in 1980 when Jean-Marc Blain (a Sancerrois) married Claudine Gagnard, youngest daughter of Jacques and Marie-Josèphe Gagnard of Domaine Gagnard-Delagrange. The couple runs this venerable domaine with the help of their son Marc-Antonin. Jean-Marc Blain and Claudine Gagnard met while they were both studying oenology at Dijon. The estate’s vineyards come […]

Sonoma and Napa in May

Tamara and I had some unexpected free time to visit wine country in May while we were in California. We visited some great wineries in Sonoma and Napa. I wanted to spend more time in Sonoma this time as I had previously spent more time in Napa. Plus, we have been on a long-standing Pinot […]

Does Beaujolais age well?

Does Beaujolais Age Well? It depends… One of my favorite wines to drink year round in Hawaii is Cru Beaujolais. Cru Beaujolais is not exactly the same thing as Beaujolais Nouveau or Beaujolais Village. They are all part of the catch all region of Beaujolais and they are mostly made from the grape called Gamay […]

Does Kauai do corkage?

On Kauai it is totally legal to bring your own bottle of wine into a restaurant. Most restaurant corkage fees, the price charged to bring your own bottle, is between $20-$30. I have not had any issues or attitude with bringing my own bottle into any of the places on the North Shore. Some places […]

The blue clay of Petrus

In the aftermath of the recent Bordeaux seminar we helped organize with Vintus I have been wondering what to share about the experience. We tasted some very good wines at a variety of price points. What lingers with me the most, as with most good wine experiences is the notion of terroir. My favorite of […]

What color is Bordeaux?

What color is Bordeaux? Bordeaux can be white, red, or even rosé! No wonder you may be confused. Bordeaux wines are generally blends, but not always. There are many grapes permitted in Bordeaux, but the most common for red wines is Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. The most common white grapes are Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon. […]
