I really love Thanksgiving.  Might be my favorite holiday of the year.  There are lots of reasons this might be the case... The fact that I love Fall evenings, that I find the food comforting or that I've always found so much to be thankful for.  This year will be no d...

Well you knew  it was coming.  This guy can't possibly pass up an opportunity to rave about Oregon wine and, in particular, Oregon Pinot.  But, in keeping with the theme of the first two posts, this is about great Fall values.  So I have selected a half dozen or so of...

Thank you for the feed back on part 1, my post on Fall Whites.  One thing almost all of you asked about were the prices.  I don't usually post price because they can vary from area to area.  That said, I will tell you that all of the wines covered in that post, as well...

So after my last blog, touching on drinks with philosophers and heads exploding, it was suggested to me that (in lieu of checking into rehab) I might want to spend a blog or two writing wine reviews and recommendations.  You know, just to clear my head.  Clear my head?...

I know.  It's been a little while between blog posts.  Aside from missing my muse, I figured it was time for me to devote some energy and thought to my TED talk.  You know, actually formulate something that someone would sit through or You Tube.  So... As part of this...

Ok.  You saw my post on camping a couple posts ago.  So you know that me and camping are words not often used together in my universe.  So imagine the glee I was feeling as the weekend of Wine Camp approached.  The things I agree to do for friends!

For me it's Chianti.    Oh... I could go into great detail about why it will always be about Chianti...  I'm not really one to kiss and tell, but it might simply be that you always want to hold on to that familiar, early love.

It has been my experience (wine o...

Yes, someone actually said that to me.  And, NO, that was not the strangest thing I heard about Oregon wine in the past two weeks.

As some, maybe most of you know, I have been involved in some way with the wine industry for the past 30 years or so.  Most of that time ha...

Ahh... The great outdoors.  Long bike rides, leisurely hikes up tall mountains, afternoon runs along the river trails... Nothing that you are likely to ever catch me doing.  Unless, of course, I am invited to do so by an attractive lady and I can bring along copious am...
