    The Winery and Wines of the Biltmore Estate


    Housed in what used to be a thriving dairy barn is a winery which produces just under two million bottles annually of vinifera wines, using estate grapes, North Carolina sourced fruit and West Coast grapes as well. The Winery at the Biltmore Estate is big, efficient, a gracious host and also makes some excellent wine.

    Visit to the Biltmore Estate, a Destination in Itself


    We were recently heading back to the Winston-Salem area to visit our daughter and son in law, and this time we tacked on a couple of extra days to make the drive to Asheville and visit the Biltmore House. This has been something on our list of things to do for quite a while,

    A Better Choice Sauvignon Blanc from Marlborough


    We did a review of a Sauvignon Blanc from Marlborough, produced by Nine Walks and not too impressive. You don’t want to leave things on a bad note if you can avoid it, so we popped open another one to see if we could improve things a bit. We did improve, and this wine was

    A Marlborough, New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc


    New Zealand wines made a big splash with zippy Sauvignon Blancs, most of which show a little grassy or green quality to them. The Marlborough region, on the South Island, is where the Sauvignon Blancs are concentrated. In the decade between 2000 and 2010 this region doubled it’s number of wineries and grape growers during

    The 2005 Bordeaux Train Rolls On


    We’ve been taking a slice through our 2005 Bordeaux to get a feel for what we have, and the reviews have been quite good. It looks like we have a lot of excellent wine to enjoy over the next decade or so, and this bottle adds another very good wine to the rolls. It seems

    Hooray for Vouvray!


    If you read the wine press these days it seems everyone is talking about dryness and acidity. They’re pairing higher acid wines to go better with food. Wine makers are picking grapes early to keep the acid levels higher. It used to be the philosophy was to try and maximize the sugars. Now everything has

    A Carmenere From Chile

    Carmenere is one of the staple red grapes of Chile, although for many decades they thought it was a Merlot clone. Carmenere used to be a Bordeaux grape as well. It can make very good wines, with power and depth if done well. This wine is different, and I’d bet there will be a fair

    Tannat #3 – Michael David Inkblot – This is big!

    inkblot tannat

    Our first two Tannats hailed from South America, and while they were good (and one made the value list) they were not the big, tannic, dark wines the grape is known for historically. You can read about them here and here. We have not been able to get our hands on a bottle from the
