Yes! Where, how? I'm in town!!


in NYC, is that your town?


Don't get me started...! '...used to be her town/used to be my town, too...
Yes, 25th street accross from Baruch College-- except Stone Ridge near new Paltz Mon-Wed,next couple weeks...


Wait, there's wine in New York? Okay, okay, maybe I have "house palate" as they accuse us of in Napa last year. We are close to the 300+ wineries in Paso Robles after all. I have had an AMAAAZING Sauv Blanc from Long Island. Where do I get more?

The class Sunday night was a lot of fun. I agree that the prices are on the high side, more than I usually pay for wine, but I decided to splurge after enjoying the class so much.

I liked the Ganevat Cuvee du Garde and I splurged and bought it yesterday from Appellation Wine and ordered the Ganevat Plein Sud Trousseau from Frankly Wines.

After this it will be back to buying the less than $20 wines.

I hope that you will have more classes.

Thanks again for the great class.


I have a question, why do you think the reds should be under 25? It's a small region with problematic growing conditions, and good Terroir is rare and goes for a premium compared to other up and coming wine regions.


The big reason is so I can afford them. A year ago many of them were at that price point. In the six months, it seems, there's been a $10 increase per bottle on many. I'm not sure the vigneron is seeing that in their pocket. As far as problematic clime? So does Nantes, in fact, plenty of places. I'm not grudging people making a living, but I am sniffling at the fact that I can soon not afford wines I love.

I'm hunting the Leon Trotskys, the Philip Roths, the Chaucers and the Edith Whartons of the wine world. I want them natural and most of all, I want them to speak the truth even if we argue. With this messiah thing going on, I'm trying to swell the ranks of those who crave the differences in each vintage, celebrate nuance and desire wines that make them think, laugh, and feel. Welcome.
