How much wine is enough when you dine out with friends?

Based on your corpulence, it will affect your tolerance on consuming more wines than a lighter person. Eated food will balance what you drink, mostly carbs and proteins, but make sure you drink lots of water while you enjoy the moment.

On the other end, if you are tired, please do not have any alcohol drinks, as you know: it may impair your ability to drive or operate machinery... Bla Bla Bla. But seriously, watch yourself and ask for others to watch you, being your angel.

2005 BORDEAUX!.... to drink or to invest?....

OH YES.... Robert Parker and many other wine critics after tasting in Bordeaux, raved about the high quality of the 2005 Bordeaux.

Another vintage of the Century, already!

Well, my experience of tasting many wines a week - especially when I travelled to France - confirme that statement of high quality vintage.

Now, the prices went to the roof after release - whoever bought during the "primeur" campaign (buying wine while still in barrels at prices below the release price…

CHAMPAGNES or Sparkling Wines?...

Most of you know the difference of course but do you know that the official bureau of Champagne spend $2 millions of Euros a year to protect the name of Champagne in the US alone!

Champagne is a region and a wine appellation protected by law. In many countries, there has been an agreement for not using the name of Champagne for the sparkling wines produced in those countries.

Although, in the US, debates and court appeals are still ongoing between the Champagne bureau and some…

Champagnes - taste at the TOUR DE CHAMPAGNE

I was fortunate to be invited to the last Tour de Champagne in Atlanta. It was at the Ritz Carlton Downtown. The whole room was enlighted with so many Champagne houses that were pouring their best cuvees. For a minimal fee to enter the 3 hour event, you could enjoy POMMERY, KRUG, RUINART, VRANKEN, HEIDSIECK MONOPOLE (the "Blue Top" was the only Champagne featured in the Wine Spectator top 100 wines) as well as many other main brands but also small producers like HEMART, GOERG...

Trading Exercise for Alcohol?

Interesting article from A. Chris Gajilan

Medical News Senior Producer - edited January 14th.



We all know that exercise is good for your heart. In addition, most of you probably already know that drinking moderately is better than no drinking at all when it comes to your health, and more specifically your ticker. But did you know that exercise and drinking alcohol lower your coronary heart disease risk in similar ways?

Hi Herve,

I reside in Northern NJ. I work for a wine & spirits warehouse, and my current position is business development. I'm always on the look out for importers who would like to store their product in our warehouse. Any ideas or leads would be most helpful.

I also am a wine lover, and would love to build my knowledge in that area. Do you know of any wine tastings that are taking place in NJ? I look forward to your response.

Regards,
Lisa

Herve,
You know a lot of people, it is impressive.

Do you hold wine tastings? If you do where and how do you conduct them? Do groups, or restaurants sponsor them? What is the cost for these events if you do conduct these.

Regards,

Seth
