Knoll for Decades from Rosemary Gray

‪#‎TBT‬ to Rosemary Gray’s, co-founder of Sherryfest, brilliant article about Knoll wines. Gray has had the privilege of tasting ‪#‎Knoll‬ wines dating back to the ‘50s and argues that his wines “have the most magnificent aging potential of all white wine in the world.” Lucky for us though, she states, “you don’t have to wait decades for these wines to resolve themselves.” So this Thursday, either throw it way back by picking up a well-aged bottle of Knoll or try one of Gray’s 2012 selections. Prost!

What type of closure is at the top of your wine bottle? Get the scoop on the “Natural vs. Alternative Closure Wars” from the Wine Economist.

Throwback Series Feat. Domaine Ciringa

It’s Thursday and we are coming to the end of our throwback series from our Bottlenotes & Brushstrokes ‪#‎winegallery‬ event w/ UGallery.com. We have truly enjoyed getting to know John Diehl, @TheBeardBaron1, and his winemaker-inspired paintings with you. This week we are featuring Diehl’s painting inspired by Armin Tement of Domaine Ciringa. Armin describes, “Every vine in its terroir is unique and you have to treat every vine individually.” While each of Diehl’s paintings was approached with the same technique, they were treated individually depending on the inspiration from the corresponding interview. As a farewell to this series, we will raise our glasses to the people who made this night of wine and art possible. Prost! Happy ‪#‎TBT‬!
