“Great Wine” by the Numbers?

by David on September 24, 2006

I was thinking about an interview I did with my friend Jeff Booth, of Pepi-Booth Consulting (they consult for Goosecross and have clients as far away as China!). It was for an upcoming episode on our podcast, Napa Valley Wine Radio, and one of the questions I asked him was if he thought the day […]

Dumbing down of wine labels and wine?

by David on September 18, 2006

I’ve been (casually) following the discussion on blogspot.com regarding new-world vs. old world, and something Trish said in New World vs. Old World Part Deux caught my attention. She was troubled by her own observation: “People want at-a-glance labels, suggested pairings, critters, playful names and specified grapes.

Another Year, Another Harvest…

by David on September 14, 2006

The feeling is anything but that. No matter how many harvests I witness, there’s nothing like the feeling when that first box of jewel-like grape clusters arrives at the winery. It still makes my heart race and tears spring to my eyes. Don’t know why. But I’d venture to guess that most true, hands-on winemakers […]

Zinfandel is not our state historic wine??!!

by David on August 31, 2006

Well, I’d just put the finishing touches on our Winemaker Notes for our State Lane Zinfandel and was crowing about Zinfandel being named our state historic wine and the governator pulled the plug! Seems he didn’t want to show favoritism toward any one variety. I think he missed the point. We’re talkin’ history, here. In […]

Pairing Sparkling Wine with Food?

by David on August 28, 2006

I naturally gravitated toward Spittoon’s August 9 Blog on pairing sparkling wine with food, being a slave to the beverage. I was surprised to learn that so little is written about it, and yet, in a way, it makes sense because most people think of bubbly as something you sip at a celebration, not the […]

Welcome to the Goosecross Cellars Blog!

by David on August 22, 2006

A Goosecross Blog? So, just how did we come to host a weblog anyway? We’ll, to be honest, I put up quite the fight because I just didn’t get it (I’m not quite sure I get it to this day). Who has the time to write these things? Who has the time to read these […]
