Robert Parker is NOT responsible for Kenny G!

In April of 1970 Miles Davis released one of the truly unique, original and influential albums of all time. Bitches Brew took listeners places no one even knew existed until Davis showed the way. Unlike the “cool” Miles Davis of Kind of Blue or Birth of the Cool, this Miles was in your face, aggressive and highly experimental. It was as if Davis heard Coltrane in a new way via Jimi Hendrix and something inside […]

Terry Hoage Vineyards and the 2011 NFL Draft

When we recently attended Hospice du Rhône in Paso Robles a very long tradition for me was broken. Also occurring that weekend was the NFL draft. Stretching back to the sometime in the early-to-mid 80’s I have been a faithful draft follower. As an avid Detroit Lions fan, it has often been the highlight of the season for me. The first time I remember watching it was with my good friend Ronnie Schultz in some […]

7 Things You Might Not Know…

Since attending the first Wine Bloggers’ Conference in 2008 in Santa Rosa, I’ve spent a lot of time “palling around with terroirists” and got to know The Beer Wench in the process. Ashley’s is one of the few blogs to which I actually subscribe. I notice she has been posting quite often lately, thus shaming me even more for my failure to post at least every other day.

Announcing the Results of the 2010 Annual AWB Self-Serving Wino Survey

Another Wine Blog is delighted to reveal the results of our 2010 Annual AWB Self-Serving Wino Survey. But first, a few words about our methodology. After all, a survey of any kind is only as good as the methodology employed and only a complete douchebag would refuse to reveal how the results were obtained, n’est-ce pas? Initially it was determined that our questions would be designed in such a way so we could gather information […]

Labor Day and The Grapes of Tom Joad

Labor Day for many marks the end of Summer, and the return of Football to America. It’s not just another “Hallmark Holiday.” It’s not just a way to give bankers and government workers a day off. Or to allow Congress to take an extended break before returning to gridlock. In fact, it’s a holiday born from the concept of socialism – the organized labor movement. Want to read more?

Stealing Wine, Food and Money

They say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. Perhaps. But when someone is making money by stealing our wine reviews, pairings, recipes and photographs of food and wine, we have to take issue with it. We addressed this topic at the Wine Bloggers’ Conference during Wine Blogging 101. A number of would-be and new bloggers asked about copyright issues when using photos and graphics they “found on the web.” One of the presenters said […]
