And serving a top quality wine, or fine Champagne, will always remain recognizable symbols for celebrations. We do this for a variety of reasons, but in a practical sense, it’s really too expensive to bring out $100 bottles... Read More

La Crema: A continuing Pinot Noir value

Posted on: September 8th, 2014 by Tom Peiffer No Comments

As more vineyards appear in the cool coastal areas of Northern California, the price of a good bottle of Pinot continues to be quite reasonable.  In fact, many good Pinot Noirs are now available for less than similarly rated Cabernet Sauvignons.  This even includes well respected brands. And one of the most well-known producers... Read More
