A couple of months ago, I visited Red Hook Winery in Brooklyn (pictured above), followed by Shinn Estate Vineyards and Channing Daughters, for a piece on Skin Fermented Whites. Now available in the Spring issue of Edible East End (and possibly Brooklyn and Manhattan too), you can read all about the deliciousness of local Orange Wines here.

The other week, the Wine Media Guild hosted a Vertical Tasting of three chateaux from Bordeaux–a luncheon at Felidia‘s that began with a one-hour self-pour tasting of twelve wines, before everyone sat for lunch. For the first portion of the tasting, we sampled Chateau Angelus 2005-2008, Chateau Figeac 2001-2003 and 2006, and La Conseillante 2000, 2001, 2004, and 2005. With lunch, we drank Angelus-1990, 1995, 1998, and 2001; Figeac–1995 & 1998; and La Conseillante–1995 & 1998. And while there were plenty of beauties on the catwalk, there were a few that stood elegantly poised and stiletto’d above the rest.

For Edible East End‘s Winter 2011 issue, I wrote a piece on the sparkling wines of Long Island, titled, “Bring on the Bubbles”. For this year’s Christmas and New Year’s festivities, check the North and South Fork’s bubbly production at Sparkling Pointe, Lenz Winery, Wölffer, Martha Clara, Lieb, and Croteaux. You can view the piece here. Cheers!
I have a piece in the March/April 2010 issue of Edible Manhattan titled, “Trailblazer: Remembering an accidental vintner who put Hudson Valley Wine on the map.”
For the Summer issue of Edible Hudson Valley, I interviewed Steve Osborn, winemaker and owner (alongside his wife Kim Wagner) of Stoutridge Vineyards, in Marlboro, New York. Though not yet online, the piece is called “Slow Wine at Stoutridge”, and is on the stands now. Check it out!
