When Roman Bratasiuk decided to become a winemaker, he literally drove the backroads of McClaren Vale, stopping to taste grapes before he found the vineyard now known as Astralis. Once he found this magical place, where the stars seem almost close enough to touch, his fate was sealed. He worked from sun up to sun down. His hands were stained a deep red-purple from picking the grapes, and it is the way his sons, Alex and Adam, fondly remember him during those years.

The Bratasiuks have such reverence for the vineyards and terroir – Roman has always referred to the vines, some of the oldest in th...

Sociando Mallet derives its name from two previous owners. A nobleman known as Sociando owned the property back in the 1600s. The second part of the estate’s name comes from a naval captain who owned the estate by the name of Mallet. It was Mallet who combined the two names to form Sociando Mallet. When Jean Gautreau purchased Sociando Mallet in 1969, the property had fallen into disrepair in both the wine making facilities as well as the vineyards. Gautreau quickly expanded and replanted the vineyards and remodeled the wine making facilities creating a state-of-the-art production facility. Fr...

Fontodi Flaccianello by all standards could be classified as a Chianti; however, the Manetti Family that produces the wine still classifies it as a Super Tuscan and thus, it’s still how people perceive it. This week I had the opportunity to try the 2012 Fontodi Flaccianello and got to see firsthand how this wine compares to some Chiantis and some Super Tuscans. 

Fontodi has belonged to the Manetti Family since 1968, but the estate itself dates back to the 16th century. Today the winery, which is in the heart of Chianti, produces seven different wines, one of them being the Flaccianello Della Pi...

2013 Domaine Vincent Paris Cornas Granit 60

$37.95 – 93 VM

Having been in the fine and rare wine business for nearly 13 years, it’s not every day that I’m blown away by a new find. I’ve been fortunate to have tried some of the greatest bottles from the best wine producing regions on earth. That being said, I love trying new wines from regions that I typically do not focus on tasting. I recently noticed that we had several cases of 2013 Domaine Vincent Cornas “Granit 60” come into stock with a killer price, and that it somehow had passed under the radar of our sales team. It’s not often that I ha...

If you’re looking for the perfect bottle to bring to the beach, on a picnic or to any summer gathering, why not try the newest release from Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie and the Perrin Family?  2014 was a great effort, but I think 2015 will top it easily. Perhaps I’m just ready for a summer sipping wine, but my experience with the 2015 proved to me that Pitt, Jolie and Perrin know what they are doing when it comes to Rosé

In 2012, Jolie and Pitt purchased the 1,500-acre estate and haven’t looked back. The famous Perrin family, who you might know from Chateau de Beaucastel in the Rhone Valley, has...

To strongly reiterate, “2013 for many wineries in Napa and Sonoma has produced the finest wines I have tasted in 37 years2013 a classic of power, intensity and equilibrium…” - Robert Parker

With everyone from wine critics to winemakers to wine collectors raving about this stellar vintage, I am always anxious to open a bottle, and the 2013 Newton Unfiltered Chardonnay seemed particularly appealing one night this week when my husband was taking some salmon burgers off the grill.

Newton sources their Chardonnay from the Carneros region of Napa, on hills that roll toward the San Pablo Bay. This loc...

Since the year 1860, the Boiron Family has impressively crafted wine at the property, and for the past six generations, the Domaine has been handed down from father to son, holding up to the tradition of the estate.

The 2012 Les Bosquet des Papes Chateauneuf du Pape Chante le Merle Vielles Vignes is an extremely elegant wine, which is drinking beautifully now, and should have another two decades of total longevity.  

Pronounced - (sha-toh-nuhf-doo-PAHP), and as the name suggests, this wine will surely POP! This spicy French red is packed with ripe flavors of black fruits, coffee, and pepper whic...

1. We have found that the overall quality of the 2015 vintage is somewhere between very good and outstanding, depending on the appellation and producer. When we think about comparing the 2015 vintage to other memorable vintages, we believe that it falls somewhere between the power of 2005 and the accessibility of the 2009, but with lower alcohol levels, which makes it feel fresher and perhaps, even more pure.

2. The 2015 vintage is proving to be an especially good year for Right Bank producers. While many excellent wines were produced on the Left Bank, the overall consistency of quality in St. ...

Marchese Mario Incisa della Rocchetta is one of the founders of the so called ‘Super Tuscan’ wine, and his wine Sassicaia has become one of the most sought-after wines in the world. Located just south of Livorno in Tuscany sits the Tenuta San Gudio estate, and this is where Mario had the vision to plant Cabernet and Merlot vines. He thought the ‘rocky’ terrain mimicked the soil of Graves in Bordeaux and set out to produce a world class wine from these varietals.

The Marchese’s first couple vintages weren’t exactly considered hits to the critics, who were accustomed to drinking the lighter style...

Burgundy and all of its different appellations can be a little daunting at times. I mean within Burgundy itself, it has 100 different appellations or AOCs (Appellations d’Origine Controlee) that can be broken down into four levels which includes, Regional, Village, Premier Cru and Grand Cru. So when I had the opportunity to try the 2011 Jean Marc Pillot Chassagne Montrachet Les Vergers Premier Cru White Burgundy, I wanted to get to know more about the area that the wine comes from.

Of the 100 different AOCs that a wine from Burgundy can be classified from, there are 23 Regional appellations, wh...
