great quotes

New York City police detective Theo Kojak is very excited — or at least as excited as he gets — about the 2015 $10 Wine Hall of Fame.

Happy New Year 2015


The blog is off today for New Year’s, but will return tomorrow with our usual features in the run-up to the 2015 $10 Hall of Fame, which arrives on Monday.

A tip o’ the Wine Curmudgeon’s fedora to blog visitor John Hammer for passing along this video, which not only puts wine into perspective, but is funny. Who knew Vikings didn’t like oaky chardonnay? (Video is courtesy of Holidaytravel tvspots via YouTube.)

Happy New Year from the Wine Curmudgeon.

Fourth of July 2014


The blog is mostly off today for the holiday, but will return on Monday with our usual features, including the cheap wine book giveaway with Jon Thorsen, the Reverse Wine Snob. Enjoy July 4, and especially this video — Linda Ronstadt, Emmylou Harris, and Dolly Parton from the incredible Trio II, singing “High Sierra” (courtesy of jpspanishfan2 at YouTube). Harmony doesn’t get much better than this.

And you don’t have to be of a certain age to understand what music lost when Ronstadt, who has Parkinson’s, realized she couldn’t sing anymore.
