Causse Maines From Gaillac – A Biodynamic Beauty

February 15, 2013

I have to comment on this very wacky French label.  For me it conjurs up images of a wacky French pantomime on the streets of Paris.  Then I have to wonder why the cross-eyes and what’s up with the silhouette of the Mickey Mouse?  I guess it did it’s job and got my attention. I [...]

Me & My 1971 Barolo Go For A Ride On The F Train

January 22, 2013

We had a big open the bottle night last Friday with a 1971 Fratelli Barale Barolo from Piedmont, Italy. My husband bought this 40 year-old wine and gave it to me for my big 40 birthday!  I was blown away when he gave it to me!  The type-A wine-o in me wondered where it was [...]

Syrah, Shiraz and Petite Sirah. What is the difference anyway?

December 13, 2012

The answer is  two are alike and one is very different. Syrah is considered one of France’s “noble” varieties because of its ability to produce serious red wines capable of aging for decades.   France’s best Syrahs come from the steep slopes in eastern France’s Northern Rhone.   California has some great ones out of Sonoma, Napa [...]

Comfort Wine For Your Comfort Foods

November 21, 2012

In the cold winter months, I’m especially in need of comfort wine and food.  Carbs, meat and red wine!  I only eat beef a handful of times a year but when I do, I love a good, organic braised beef pasta sauce on a heap of pasta. I can’t think of any wine that I’d [...]

Hi-yo, Rhone Rangers – away!

November 21, 2012

A few weeks ago, I poured Stark Wine at the Rhone Rangers (not to be confused with the Lone Ranger) first ever New York City event at City Winery.  Even though it was during the freak blizzard on November 7, I was thrilled to see so many New Yorkers turn out to taste 155 different [...]

Meinklang – Austrian Frizzante Pinot Noir

October 18, 2012

Meinklang is an Austrian Frizzante Pinot Noir with a weird name.  The name aside, this wine is a delicious, biodynamic wine made from Pinot Noir from the Burgenland area of Austria.  The cow on the label pays homage to the bovine’s central role in creating a healthy, living soil key to biodynamic grape ‘farming’. This [...]

The Healdsburg Patch reported on Stark Thirst’s unique mission.  Writer Christian Kallen gives his tasting note and spreads Stark Thirst’s motto, “Enjoy Wine: Give Back”. He also calls me a “mad woman” who spent the majority of her career on Madison Avenue.  I reflected that my madness continues as I enter a wine world I [...]

Porch Wines

One of my joys in summer is to sit on the porch and sip a glass of cool white wine! David Bolling of Sonoma Magazine wrote an article on porch wines.  His criteria for a porch wine is that it’s 1) white 2) inexpensive 3) not an alcohol monster.  He writes primarily about Switzerland’s proprietary [...]
