Re: Moving to Seattle area: Recommendations for wine shops, tasting rooms, wineries to visit?

I have no affiliation with Medium Plus aside from the fact that I follow Nick Davis's Instagram account. I believe he runs a warehouse at 7511 Greenwood Ave N #306, Seattle, WA 98103, so you may want to browse his website and pickup at the warehouse. His website has been invaluable to me as he and h...

Re: Replacement wine rack for Eurocave

I've seen listings on OfferUp and Craigslist (dependent on your location of course), and I'd check on Nextdoor, Facebook Marketplace, LetGo, and eBay.

Re: Chandon de Briailles 2007 PV Ile des Vergelesses

So glad to come across this post because it reminds me that this is the first red Burgundy that I've tasted -- down to the vintage. I tasted this 5 years ago, a bit closed but still had the beautiful rose aroma and acidity. Thank you for sharing!

Re: Acid and aging

My random thoughts: The final state of any wine is oxidized...which is why Madeira is playing the right game and we're all the fools :). If you want to make your own vinegar, you generally need to lower the alcohol down to a level that the acetobacter can survive...most home vinegar makers I know (...

Re: Millennials and Wine

To add to the discussion, I, too, am a millennial wine enthusiast. My wine journey started when I was 21 and found myself at a local wine retail shop. There, I was exposed to old world wines. I loved it so much that I became part of the team not too long after stepping foot there. I wasn't exposed t...

Re: When Will All White Burg Producers Begin To Use Diam?

Comtes Lafon is using DIAM 30. I believe that's standard for sparkling wines as well? [new-here.gif] Ah nice! Well I haven't opened any of my Comte Lafon Montrachet yet. I had just the 2015 Monthélie Les Duresses. I was quite surprised to see the 30 used for this. Hopefully they’ve converted to use...

Re: When Will All White Burg Producers Begin To Use Diam?

Bouchard started using Diam I've seen DIAM5 on their lower end stuff and DIAM10 on the GCs. Is anybody using DIAM30? DIAM5 is stiffer than a regular cork, but DIAM10 is considerably stiffer than 5 and harder to get the corkscrew in and feels like it sticks to the bottle quite a bit more. You can de...
