Today I want to start something new here at Winetalks. Each week (probably every Thursday or so) I want to share with you a few posts, articles or wine reviews that I find worth reading. It simply would take way too much posts (and space) to reblog all of them so I plan to only reblog posts on rare occasions from now on. Since this blog is called Winetalks I want to talk with you about these topics. So feel free to comment on any or all of them. The categories won’t be the same every week. Depends on what I’ve red.
Wine recommendations of the week
- VinItaly International/Slow Wine NYC 2013: The Full Story – Flora’s Table
Stefano has over 15 high-quality Italian wine recommendations for you. And that in just one article! Which one is your favorite?
- Three good-value wine recommendations - The Winegetter
Oliver always impresses me with his good-value wine recommendations All available for under $15. If you are looking for good and affordable wine then this is for you.
Event of the week
- Italian Wine Tales in Houston, TX. - Gambero Rosso
If you live in the Houston area then this event might be something for you. The Gambero Rosso is coming to Houston for the first time ever where they will offer two seminars. One about Italian sparkling wine and one about red wines from Tuscany.
- Wine in Bosnia and Herzegovina - Kawa & Vino
I know this post is not from this week but I just found it recently. If you want to read about wines from Bosnia and Herzegovina then you will enjoy this read. I’ve never had wine from Bosnia. Have you?
Disappointment of the week
- E. & J. Gallo Winery and Constellation Brands named wineries of the year 2012 - Wine Searcher
In my opinion this is a poor choice but it probably shows how poor the American wine market is. There are so many wineries that deserve the award much more than E. & J. Gallo. What do you think? Does E. & J. Gallo deserve this award?
Article of the week
- The History of the Super Tuscan - Vino in Love
Julian wrote an interesting article about the history of Super Tuscans. Straight to the point. Definitely worthreading, especially if you want to know more about Tuscan wines. His knowledge about Italian wine impresses me over and over again. What’s your opinion on Super Tuscans? I personally never had one but yesterday I ordered a bottle of Tignanello! So exciting!
