Storing Wine

Storing Wine

"Wine not stored well doesn't age, it just gets old." – Jim Terry

So you bought some wine that you are not planning to drink right away. What is the best way to preserve it?

Good Wine – Great Wine

Good Wine – Great Wine

We live in privileged times. There is more drinkable, reasonably inexpensive wine available locally and regionally than ever before. If all you have is $12 dollars, you can find a very enjoyable wine to go with nearly any meal. However, when asked why one likes a certain wine, some people might have to stop and think about it. Perhaps it’s the bouquet, or its hint of sweetness, or how it goes particularly well with their homemade lasagna.

Open That Bottle Night!

Open That Bottle Night!

As I closed last month's column, I mentioned that in 1999 Dorothy J. Gaiter and John Brecher, wine columnists for the Wall Street Journal, initiated Open That Bottle Night (OTBN). Since then, it has become a world-wide phenomenon and it's about time we in Dubuque joined in the party. Open That Bottle Night is about living in the moment and making a night special by sharing wine with a loved one, a small groups of friends, or a collection of people who enjoy the simple pleasures that wine can elicit. Therefore, you are invited to make plans for February 22 at 6:00 p.m. to either join us in-person, or in spirit in your own home, by opening that bottle you've been saving for a special night.

Wine Resolutions for 2014

Wine Resolutions for 2014

“A bottle of wine begs to be shared; I never met a miserly wine lover.” –Clifton Fadiman (1904-1999) - American intellectual, author, editor, radio and television personality

January – the start of a new year - a time to reflect and a time to look forward. Maybe even, dare I say, make a few resolutions? If we want to take wine more seriously, then we ought to take steps with that as a goal. Here then are some resolutions for a more heightened awareness of wine in 2014.
