Late Harvest Chenin Blanc (dessert Wine) India There is a revolution in grape growing that seeks to turn from the brute force of chemicals and pesticides of the 1960s through the 1980s to a more natural path that seeks to cooperate with natural forces.
Indian Cabernet Shiraz In climates like California and Washington State with low humidity and virtually no rainfall during the growing season, some grape growers are able to easily eschew artificial methods to utilize organic and even biodynamic techniques to produce superior fruit. Maryland with its frequent rainfall and warm humid summers? Not so much.

“The most disagreeable time I have experienced.” That’s how William Clark (of the Lewis and Clark expedition) described his first winter in the Pacific Northwest. Many of us who are still shaking off memories of the rainiest winter on record know exactly how he felt.
Rosé India This, more than any summer in recent memory, is going to be a season for the outdoors. And that is where we’ll focus our summer wines: on bottles appropriate for campground picnic tables, all-day barbecues or plain old patio pounding.
Sauvignon Blanc India Let’s begin with Riesling, Washington’s most widely planted white variety. Much of our state’s reputation for wine comes from Riesling, thanks to Ste. Michelle Wine Estates’ championing of the grape. Styles run the gamut from very dry to very sweet, with many producers now indicating sweetness level on their bottles’ back labels. Riesling also has naturally high acidity levels and tends toward low alcohol levels. When a good Riesling is given a hard chill on a hot day, it conveys a deeply refreshing character.

The closure of Morris Wines in Rutherglen is a devastating blow: for the people who will lose their jobs, for the heart and soul of the region, and for Australian wine lovers, especially those of us who think the Morris Rare Muscat is one of the greatest wines in the world.
Cabernet Shiraz India Parent company Pernod Ricard (the huge drinks multinational that also owns wine brands such as Jacob’s Creek and St Hugo) announced last week it is shutting the cellar door at the 157-year-old Rutherglen winery at the beginning of 2017 and in the meantime putting the assets on the market, to be sold separately — the buildings, the vineyards, and the extensive stocks of fortified wines, including the famous muscats.
Rosé India Pernod Ricard have said they are keeping the Morris brand but don’t intend to make any more wine under it — unless someone wants to make them an offer now for the whole lot, in which case they would consider selling the brand, too.
