It has been almost 10 years since Wine Aromas Inc. has requested Le Nez du Whisky. So it is with great pleasure that I make this announcement. The long-anticipated, much awaited Le Nez du Whisky is finally, finally, scheduled for release in October 2013!
Le Nez du Whisky was developed by Jean Lenoir in collaboration with Scotch Whisky Masters (Masters of Quaich) Sean MacLean and Martine Nouet.
It was a rare treat for Swiss wine lovers. On May 3rd, Swiss Wines in the City was held at the City Winery in New York City.
Leave it to the Swiss to come up with such a fantastic and original idea: a wine bottling party to promote Swiss wines in New York City! Swiss wine journalist Chandra Kurt came up with the idea.
Welcome to the new and much improved Wine Vibe, the first multilingual wine review and wine education blog by industry professionals.
Six months ago, Wine Vibe was already a great wine education blog. It had news about the wine industry, accounts of wine tastings I’ve attended, stories about wineries and vineyards I’ve visited, helpful guides on serving and drinking wines, and exclusive wine reviews.
The word is out! Have you heard about the “great” cook-off that’s setting the Las Vegas wine world on fire? It’s called Somms in the Kitchen. Somms in the Kitchen is a private, invitation-only event where sommeliers compete against one another for the top spot in the kitchen. That’s right; Somms in the Kitchen is all about sommeliers showing off their cooking and wine pairing skills.
George M. Taber, the famous author of the book, Judgment of Paris, spoke at a lecture organized by Deluca Liquor & Wine. You can read more about the Judgment of Paris and the Paris Wine Tasting of 1976 in the post entitled “George M. Taber Lecture: Judgment of Paris.”
George Taber’s new book, To Cork or Not To Cork, was the focus of this lecture. This book is about the problems associated with the use of cork. It also presents the various wine closure methods that can serve as an alternative to wine cork.
Deluca Liquor & Wine hosted a lecture by the famed wine writer, George M. Taber, author of the book, Judgment of Paris. George was there mainly to present his new book called To Cork or Not To Cork, which discusses the controversy surrounding the use of cork as wine closure. Before George proceeded to his main topic, however, he first took questions about the Judgment of Paris.
For your information, I do own this book. This book is about the Paris Wine Tasting of 1976, an event that is generally considered to be a key turning point for the entire wine industry.
