[Accidental Hedonist] WBW #18: Wine-Searcher.com: For example, if I was looking for a wine from the Pfalz area of Germany, Wine searcher would come up with these options. Instead of having to search through the various wine vendors in Seattle who may or may not be able to find what I am looking for, I can typically order a wine I want in less than 10 minutes and have it at my home within a week.
[Culinary Fool] WBW #18: Wine Shop Edition: I've been out of the loop for the last couple months and am trying to get myself back into some of the online events that occur here in blog world. Wine Blogging Wednesday (WBW) has always been one of my favorite events - I mean how can you not like an event that forces you to spend time selecting a wine, drinking it and then talking about it??
[amuse-bouche] Wine Blogging Wednesday #18: Maybe it’s the cheerleading poster for grower Champagne in the shop window that’s a dead giveaway, but when you step into their long, narrow space, the tenor of your wine-buying experience becomes immediately obvious: To your direct left, within arm’s reach, is perhaps the best selection of Chinon you’re likely to find outside the Loire or Lavinia in Paris. Dead ahead, you’ll find bottle upon bottle of lovingly chosen gruner veltliner and riesling, and on the other side of that aisle, a mini-vertical of Bartolo Mascarello Barolos.
[Appellation Australia] Wine Blogging Wednesday #18: My favourite wine store is Annandale Cellars - the staff there are knowledgeable, friendly and happy to spend a fair bit of time with me whenever I come into the store just to talk about new releases or wines that we’ve tried recently and liked or not liked. They have a small but handpicked selection of mostly boutique Australian wines and have been happy in the past to try to hunt down specific wines that I have been looking for that they don’t stock.
[Purple Liquid: a wine and food diary] WBW #18: A wine shop story: I don't remember exactly when I really started enjoying wine, maybe during one of my college year that I spent in Bordeaux. I didn't know much about wine at that time and I remember buying wines based on the label design rather than on the name of the chÃ¢teau...
[eWineCentral] WBW #18: A wine shop story: That's a very interesting theme and I feel very lucky to have in my area so many awesome wine shops that I could talk about. For this post, I chose to visit Weimax Wines & Spirits, a small wine shop with a tasting room located in Burlingame,
[Jiggledy Snork's Grape Mash Stash All Wine Review] WBW#18 ” My Favorite Wine Store(s): (It actually cost me less to buy the wine there and pay for the shipping than it would have cost me to buy the wines locally”if I could even get some of the wines locally.) Plus their staff is incredibly knowledgeable and eager to help. The last time I visited, it was the day before Thanksgiving and the place was packed, but the friendly staff took their time and helped me navigate my way through their French section where they pointed out an absolutely superb Chablis and Sauternes at a great value.
[eWineCentral] Wine Blogging Wednesday #18: Wine Store Review: Jerry travels a lot, and because he provides website and email marketing services for Frugal MacDoogal Wine Warehouse in his home base of Nashville, the decision was made to profile a relatively new wine store in Knoxville, Tennessee. Turkey Creek Wine &
[Sui Generis] Wine Blogging Wednesday: wine shops that feel... : I jumped at the chance to participate in this month's WBW since this month's theme doesn't require me to write about wine tasting (which I'm not very good at) but rather about wine shopping (which I'm marginally better at). While trying to decide which wine shop to write up, I realized that I'm fortunate to live in a place with so many great retail outlets.
[Finger Lakes Weekend Wino] Wine Blogging Wednesday: The wine shop that I love to frequent is The NYStateWine Tasting Room & Wine Gallery in beautiful downtown Watkins Glen NY, just a short walk from Seneca Harbor at the south end of Seneca Lake in the heart of Finger Lakes wine country. The Tasting Room is a cozy place, with a 27-foot copper-topped tasting bar along the one wall and racks of Finger Lakes and other New York wines along the back and far side wall, with wine gifts and accessories toward the front.
[eWineCentral] Wine Blogging Wednesday #18 ” Road Trip: Well, I feel the love everyday that I am in my wine shop, but I dont think that is what the good Doctor is talking about, and I am reticent to endorse a fellow competitor, so I concluded that it was time to make a Road Trip to Dayton with the local guidance of Mark Fischer at Uncorked, the wine columnist at the Dayton Daily News. You will have to pardon the length of this write-up but I have a story to tell.
[eWineCentral] Dr. Vino is hosting this weeks Wine Blogging W... : Mike, Peter and Claire are always spot-on with their recommendations, whether I am looking for a cheap bottle of table wine, or a nice gift for my boss. In addition, they take the time to get to know their customers personally, ask me about my son, and they have learned a little bit about my tastes.
[Bottle Room] Wine Blogging Wednesday: As for the bonus round, a value wine suggested by an employee of the wine shop, BethAnn suggested the 2003 Lyeth Meritage from Sonoma County. At $22.99, this Cabernet Sauvignon/Merlot/Cabernet Franc/Petit Verdot blend might not be on the low end of value wines, but I still think it meets the criteria.
[Drvino.blogspot.com] Dr. Vino's wine blog: Wine Blogging Wednesday 18: wine shops that ...: Up here in Quebec, as well as most of Canada and Northern Europe, wines sales are adminstrated by a state-controlled liquor monopoly. (That's kind of a hot topic right now for us since there's a pricing scandal going on.) But don't take that as reason to feel sorry for little old me -- my blog still has access to a wide range of wines and none of them even feature Russian text on the labels!
