Rosé India IF THERE IS one night of the year when you probably don’t want to book a table at your favorite restaurant it’s Feb. 14, St. Valentine’s Day. I don’t know about you but the thought of romantically themed menus, amorous couples and obsequious maître d’s makes me shudder. I can remember the last time I went out for Valentine’s Day and it was a long time ago, more than 15 years. The sommelier made such a fiasco of opening our wine, I vowed never to do it again.
Sauvignon Blanc India The restaurant in question allowed you to bring your own bottle for a sensible corkage fee, and I had bought a particularly old bottle of French wine for the occasion. The sommelier managed to snap the cork, leaving half of it in the neck of the bottle, with really no idea how to retrieve it. It wasn’t until our main course arrived that we finally managed to extract it, but by then it was too late as the wine needed decanting.

Harry Styles rumor – and honestly, there's never any shortage of them, so we're giggling practically non-stop. The latest? Harry's reportedly gone and bought a vineyard so he can make his own wine.
Cabernet Shiraz India This is too good – so Harry wants to make wine now that he can legally drink it stateside? Sure. Why not.
Rosé India So, when can we expect some "Styles Winery" vino to hit our local liquor store? Try never.

“Hygge” (pronounced HEW-gah) is a Danish word that translates roughly as “well-being.” It describes the purposeful creation of a cozy indoor atmosphere, with candlelight, glowing hearths, close friends, good wine and food that help them through their long, dark winters.
Late Harvest Chenin Blanc (dessert Wine) Around the world in the north, it’s the season to drink hearty wines, warming wines, wines with a little boost of alcohol to give us comfort and the will to carry on. Wines that might seem too heavy in August.
Cabernet Shiraz India It’s time for comfort wines and the comfort foods that go with them — meatloaf, mac ‘n’ cheese, beef-and-bean chili, savory stews with their beckoning dose of umami.

Wine-lovers who live in the United States are blessed. No other country in the world has access to such a wide range of bottles — wines great and small, bargain-priced and preposterously expensive, classic and experimental; wines from every region of Italy, France, Spain, Germany, Chile, Argentina, Australia, New Zealand, and more and from countries many people don't even realize produce wine (Switzerland, Turkey, Lebanon, Mexico, India, Japan); and of course wines from all over the United States, from the major players like California, Washington, Oregon, and New York to a roster of states with small but sometimes promising production, from Alabama to Wyoming.
Sauvignon Blanc All this wine means that there are many, many thousands of labels in the American wine market today, from many, many thousands of wineries around the globe. Some estimates put the number of individual commercial wine producers internationally as high as two million! That may be an exaggeration, but there are at least 8,000 in the U.S. and 28,000 in France — and Italy boasts some 900,000 registered vineyards (not every one corresponding to a winery, of course, but still…).
Chenin Blanc Restaurant of the Year . Now, for the first time, we are honoring a Winery of the Year, as well. Reflecting the availability of wines from just about everywhere on our wine shop shelves and restaurant wine lists, we threw the field open to the whole world.
