While this space has been quiet, I’m actually writing a lot right now. However, most of it is showing up at SpecsFineWine.com rather than here. Why? SpecsFineWine.com is the new fine wine only web-site I built for Spec’s and our fine wine customers. A lot of the content I have been generating for BearOnWine will be moving over there. Posts on Spec’s Fine Wine include regular features (The Big Deal, Daily Drinkers, The List, and The Friday Fizz) along with events and classes, winery profiles, articles, and opinion. And there are whole pages For Bordeaux, Burgundy, Champagne, California, and more with a lot more content coming.
Here are some links you may want to check out:
THE BIG DEAL: One incredible deal each week on a great wine of Person and Place.
Ch. GLORIA, St. Julien, 2011
THE LIST: Each week a different list. Sometimes value, sometimes red, sometimes old favorites, sometimes nothing but new.
Five Fine Party Wines For Under $10
DAILY DRINKERS: A great pick on a fine wine (a wine made by a specific someone and from a specific somewhere) priced always under $20, most often under $15, and sometimes even under $10 per bottle. These are fine wines for daily drinking.
Ch. MARTINON Entre Deux Mers 2012
THE FRIDAY FIZZ: Check in every Friday for the week’s pick in bubbles, sparkles, and fizz. From Tasmania to Taittinger, from California to Cava, if it pops, it hops.
JANSZ Brut & Rosé
EVENTS and CLASSES
WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT WINE: A four week class starting on 10/21/14.
So what about BearOnWine? Change is on the way. We have a new look and some new features are coming soon, so stay tuned.
