California Pinot Noir lovers take note. Wine lovers with a free weekend, listen up. It's Spring, and the wine events are coming fast and furious. It seems like every week there's a new wine tasting to go to. But some are more worth paying attention to than others.
Indian Late Harvest Chenin Blanc (dessert Wine) Anderson Valley is known for two things in California, and not coincidentally, it has more or less two major wine tasting events per year. The first, the International Alsace Varietals festival took place a few months ago, and I was sadly prevented from attending.
White Wine India The second is the annual Pinot Noir Festival, which it looks like I'll also be unable to attend, much to my disappointment. But if you're a fan of Pinot Noir and you don't have plans for the weekend of May 15th, I seriously recommend it. It's definitely worth the three hour drive.

Among the many innovations wineries have made in the Northwest, the latest is to help consumers understand what sort of riesling they are getting. The new aid is a scale printed on the back of some labels rating the wines as either dry, medium dry, medium sweet and sweet. A little triangle printed above the scale points to where the individual bottle falls in the mix. Pacific Rim's 2008 Dry Riesling sets the triangle directly in the middle of the dry quadrant, for example. Seattle Times wine adviser Paul Gregutt hopes other wineries adopt the scale as a good start.
Indian Sauvignon Blanc ) PACIFIC NORTHWEST wineries are often credited with being pioneers, for proving that good grapes could be grown, and good wines made, in places once thought inhospitable. But their more important pioneering achievements extend well beyond the exploration of Oregon hills and Washington deserts. They cut to the very core of American winemaking — past, present and future.
Indian Chenin Blanc It was in Oregon that pinot noir first achieved international acclaim. Washington where merlot first staked a legitimate claim to greatness. Oregon again where Dijon clones and unoaked styles elevated chardonnay to more sophisticated levels. Washington where syrah has been shown to express a rainbow of flavors that touch down in the Rhône on one end, the Barossa on the other. Oregon grew the country's first pinot gris. Washington is the country's largest and best producer of riesling. And on and on.

By Hyon O'Brien Forty years ago today, I was sworn in as an American citizen at a ceremony with hundreds of other immigrants in Washington, D.C. Since then, I have been introduced to many new things.
Indian Cabernet Shiraz One of them is learning to appreciate wine. I still do not know very much about wine and cannot distinguish good quality wine from poor ones. Even now, the maximum I can drink is two glasses. Friends we meet regularly for dinner noticed this and recommended that I should increase my intake to two and a half glasses, thinking that might improve my writing. I may do that.
