October is over? Already? WTF?!???
And so it’s time for another round up of the monthly Wine.Answers.com articles for your perusal.
If you’re looking for Halloween wine recommendations, I resisted revisiting that same old ground this year (so for that, you’ll just have to check out last year’s version, which still holds up just fine). Anyway, here’s the skinny on the October 2014 installments:
Three Things You Didn’t Know About Alsace Wine
History comes to the fore this month for Alsatian wine, that sometimes austere, sometimes bubbly, sometimes sweet, and sometimes very sweet juice that some of us geeks simply love.
Wine Book Review: “Wines of California: The Comprehensive Guide” by Mike DeSimone and Jeff Jenssen
The World Wine Guys are at it again, this time taking on the daunting task of giving a comprehensive overview of CA wine. What it lacks in depth, it makes up for in breadth and entertaining reading.
Wine Book Review: “Into the Earth: A Wine Cave Renaissance” by Daniel D’Agostini
A book about wine caves. Who knew? And it’s actually a damned good one, too, and some of those tricky photos therein are downright amazing. Worth a look, even if it’s limited to the caves of California wine country only.
What to Expect from Moscato Wine with Donnafugata’s Jose Rallo
My minor love affair with Sicily’s Donnafugata continues, this time in asking their jazz-singing marketing and quality guru Jose Rallo to give us an overview of what to expect from Moscato wine. Best to read this one with a glass of Zibibbo in hand, I’d say.
Cheers – and happy reading!
