Back to the Classroom

After a long hiatus, I'm back! 

Not much news tonight. I am getting ready to begin my weekly Thursday night wine tasting at the Broadway Marketplace in Cambridge. Wines on the slate are three of the best organic wines in the market right now.  I'm starting with Yorkville Cellars Sauvignon Blanc, a beautiful, pristine sauvignon blanc with terrific citrus/grapefruit character. In the middle is the Blue Quail Chardonnay, a lively, pure chardonnay from McFadden Vineyards, Potter Valley, Mendocino, California. I'm finishing with a rare vin de pays from the Minervois. The producer is Domaine des Homs and their La Tersande is a delicious blend of Syrah and Carignane.

Last but not least, I have just signed on to teach a class on Piedmontese wines at the Cambridge Center for Adult Education. If you're interested contact This class will fill up quick, so do it right now.
