What is Wine Frauds and how to spot it?

  As sad as it is for us wine-lovers, wine can be adulterated.   This is not a new thing. Most of the recent wine frauds are actually concerning the black market where cheap wines are relabeled and sold for a much higher price.   However, until, approximately 50 years […]

Let’s be honest; how many times have you wandered uncertain in front of those two names? How clear is the difference between them to you? Today we will try to shed a light on this subject, saying straight away that Pinot Gris and Pinot Grigio are exactly the same grape […]

Why drink Chardonnay, a very misunderstood but versatile grape?

    I went out for oysters the other night with my friend, Jack, who’s also in the wine business. Neither of us are picky eaters and he has great taste. It’s probably at least half of why we’re friends. So, it never even occurred to me that we’d run […]
