  •“French have a shot at vodka” – In the last Brief we mentioned Blanche d’Armagnac, the new “white” spirit from the Armagnac district. CNN found a perhaps more catchy headline than we did. Read their article here:
  • "Mine is bigger than yours" (wine cellar, that is) a common American syndrome (and elsewhere!), except that it is perhaps more a question of having sophisticated design rather than appropriate wine storage facilities. Read the commentary on Vinfolio, The Wine Collector
  • I might also add that Steve Bachman’s blog is unusually interesting for a wine blog. It’s not the usual “last night I drank this” stuff but quite a lot of interesting posts from someone who should certainly know about wine and the wine trade – being a wine merchant: The Wine Collector Blog
  • An interview with Jancis Robinson in Wines & Vines


Alcoholism Info January 04, 2007 12:56 AM  

With the multitude of stories in the news about people who have received multiple DUIs, the increased police and legal crackdowns on drunk drivers, and the horror stories of alcohol-related fatalities it seems to me that you and other wine lovers (and wine tasters) need to get your message out to more people. Let people know that drinking wine in moderation has been shown to have many health benefits. Spread the news about the fun and good times you have experienced with wine drinking, wine tasting, and with making a wine cellar :-)
