So please understand that I will only offer repeating bottles in my collection and selling to highest legitimate buyer. The prices I'm offering i consider very f...

Re: FEAR/ WINE

Today i saw a commercial from usual wines but i cannot find it on YouTube. Basically it starts out saying something like " did you know that most wines have hazardous or poisons in it?" And named arsenic, DD and some other stuff.. Then saying out of study of 65 wines they found 64 out of 6...

Re: Why does wine often taste better the next day (or after)

Thank you otto, that helps out very much. When you say wines are priced accordingly to the age capacity, do you think that any napa over 100$ falls in this capacity? Because being so new at this, i really don't know anything about pricing to the actual contents and potentials od the wine. ( like i o...

Re: Wine Refrigerators

Does anyone have recommendation for good units that are value buys? About 100 or 150 for storage? The price points of what some people are recommending to me is way out of my price range. I guess I'm not looking to expand the collection until i have more experience in wine. But I have to find a long...

Re: Help with cooling and storage

Lisa, sounds as if you have a very nice selection of quality wines that can still age, and enough to last me about 3 months and you probably 3-5 years. Your temperature is fine. Not sure what is meant by ‘in clumps’, but my guess is the wine threw some sediment, which is normal for red wines with s...

Re: First Time Home Winemaking Questions

Re: Help with cooling and storage

Long term at 65 will not ruin your wine. It may age slightly faster, but even an experienced taster is unlikely to notice any difference, unless tasting a pristinely stored bottle side by side. Of course, this advice assumes the wine is good to start with. Out of curiosity, how many bottles did you...

Re: Starting a collection and going to Napa, which wines can I only get at the vineyard?

Lisa - Yes, most tastings rooms in Napa and Sonoma require reservations. You don't state when you plan to visit but note that Covid-19 related restrictions change regularly. I believe that tastings rooms in most of the state are currently closed again. Throughout the summer most places have been op...

Re: Expensive $200+ vs Moderately priced $40-$150 priced wines?

Moderately priced at $150? What? :D In my books anything with a three-figure price is expensive (apart from some styles, most wines above $75 are already quite expensive) and above $250 are premium wines. When you get basically 99% of the world's wines at less than $75 per bottle, I think calling $...

Debbie, welcome. A couple of thoughts. First, a Eurocave where the ‘wine portion’ (whatever that means) only gets down to 50 degrees is perfect. For most people, serving temp should be warmer than that, the only possible exceptions are Champagne and wines that are too bad to drink without chilling ...
