The collected wine-tastings & wine-ramblings of one who prefers to describe wines with metaphors, not percentages

What’s that? You want to drop me a line?

Well ain’t that just charmin’?

Here are your options. You can wing an electronic mail across the ether in my direction, or open that beak of yours and tweet me your sweet 140-character birdsong.

If you’re stalking me, meanwhile, you might be interested (or mightily confused) to read my directionless personal blog, The Intellectual Hooligan, or cast your beady and somewhat bloodshot eye over my freelance graphic design website.

    Would be handy if you could filter by Red/White/Rose/Champers/Lambrini

    Also, pressing tab to move between form fields seems to scroll the page instead. Could just be me. I’m using Chrome/Win7.

    Ace blog though – using this as a guide from now on… :-)

    Thanks, Alex. Very useful to know about the tabindex problem (which I’ve just fixed) — something I’d not run up against because my details are autofilled.

    As for filtering. Well, you can view all wines tagged as red, white, etc, but yeah, some day I’ll maybe get round to adding a proper advanced search/filter gubbins to allow combinations of multiple filters (eg. German reds under £10) — but we’ll save that for a really rainy day.

    Anyhow, thanks for dropping by…

    Where can I buy Medaillon Sauvignon Blanc and Cabernet Sauvignon in London? I’ve been to Casablanca 10 years ago and I did enjoy these wines with seafood. Strangely enough it goes well with fish.

    Hi!
    First, sorry for my (maybe) bad and understandable English, i am a young winemaker from Croatia, starting a small family wine buisness with my father, at island of Pelješac, great Croatian wine region.
    I founded my self in your’s ABOUT page, i do think that reading about wine should be as easy as drinking it. I am just in the process of making wine label, and i want to keep it as simple as possible. Especially back side label. But also, not to omit the most important information about wine.
    Other wine makers and sellers just coping from eachothers and so all wine’s has “The Shit Written On Wine Labels” as you discribed in one of your’s articles. I am and don’t want to have shit on my label… Can you help me, and give me some hints what is important to have on wine according to yours opinion? Without tasting the wine, for now, maybe one great day you will.
    Best reguards! Cheers!

    p.s. I feel free to sugest you a great book about wine, and wine drinking, for all passionate winemaker and winedrinker…
    Maybe you already readed it, it’s called:
    The Philosophy Of Wine

    wonderful experience, going to my local wine tasting tomorrow, but where did you find that splendid 18C painting on your website? I might like to use it in my museum.
    Many thanks.
