Montalcino: unlike in some other wine-growing regions where is seems that every plantable inch / centimeter has been given over to vines, they've done a decent job of preserving the woods, which are crucial for biodiversity. Of course the woods also shelter wild boar; the owners of these vines lost 70% of their crop to boars just before harvest last year.

Northern Rhone 2015s: Dard & Ribo, Gripa, Balthazar, Paris and More! (Taste Them at Racines, Tuesday, May 2nd)
January's trip to France included many tastings of 2015s from both the northern and southern Rhone. It's obvious that this is an excellent vintage, though some wines may lack the grip and structure present in the 2010s. They make up for it, however, with the gorgeous fruit that is complex and deep a

Vallana
I don’t get too many chances to trot out the photo of Nicola Paone – or more accurately, we don’t get many chances to offer a large collection of old Vallana. The connection? In the mid-1990s, when Paone’s eponymous restaurant was on its last legs, the fantastic cellar was still in place, including

Pure Juice: Our Favorite French Wines With No Added Sulfur!
Pierre Overnoy was asked what defines a "natural" wine: "For us, a natural wine, it's a wine that one wants to drink and drink again! For some, it's a wine with nothing added...but to work without sulfur it's not 'the little birds that sing, and then you go on vacation' (We think he means it's not s
