People may think I’m crazy, asking for emails! However, I find a lot of value in hearing from the people that visit my blog, and drink wine. I am connected to my email nearly every waking hour, and love hearing from people. Whether it’s to ask what wine I’m drinking, or to tell me what wine you’re drinking, I find making that connection awesome!

You may want to use it tonight, as I join some friends for a wine tasting and education class at Total Wine here in Jupiter, Florida. We’ll be reviewing 8 Sonoma, California wines for about 2 hours, learning about the vineyards, production, and of course, the wine. I’ll do my level best to keep connected with you as we explore these fantastic offerings. Hopefully I will be able to either video or “Twitpic” things as they happen. if not, check back later or tomorrow for as much detail as I can provide!
Hi there, and thanks for stopping by. I’ve decided to take all of the wine related content from my other blog, and post it in a place it belongs. I’ll start with this post, which is new, and slowly migrate the older ones here as well.
Jip Jip Rocks Shiraz Cabernet
Today I’m showcasing a video review of Jip Jip Rocks, and their outstanding Australian Shiraz/Cabernet blend. Produced by the Bryson family, it comes from what I understand to be one of the three remaining privately owned vineyards in the area, as the rest are owned by big producers. The is rated a 90 point Wine Advocate wine, and I can see why.
Big Fire Pinot Gris
I have been really slacking with the wine review lately. Well, I’ve been slacking with typing and POSTING the reviews, but I’ve been drinking and reviewing new wines steadily for weeks. I’ve got a backlog of about 15 reviews that I’m writing up right now. However, I decided it was time to do my first ever video full wine review. I opened up a bottle of Big Fire Pinot Gris and reviewed it “live” on Seesmic.
You can expand the photo to the left and see what the bottle looks like, if you’re trying to find it in a local store. Or, just watch the below video and you’ll see what it looks like. After you watch the video, check out the supplemental review I did under the video below.
Tonight we had a bottle of Chateau Guibon Blanc 07. I was so “moved” after drinking it, that I did my first video review, in 12 seconds.
