Then he poured me his Trockenbeerenauslese. Yum! […]

Because the proponents of this urban legend are providing selective data to their audience. What? Cherry-picking facts? Comparing apples to oranges?  No, they say, my news source wouldn’t lie to me! Especially not so close to an election of Epic Importance! Well wake up […]

Part of any respectable sommelier program includes identification of wines through only the wine student’s sensory perceptions. Be it the Court of Master Sommeliers, Institute of Masters of Wines or International Sommelier Guild, to name a few, the student learns to identify the grape varietal, region of origin, alcohol by volume and often even the vintage of the wine, simply through sight, smell and taste.
