How Many Bottles of Wine in a Barrel?

I know you all want a straight answer.  The answer that you normally read is 25 cases in a barrel of wine, or 300 bottles. But, that’s not entirely true. […] The post How

Harvest Update 2018

#XperienceTravelTheTaylorWay It’s a difficult thing.  To get an update on harvest from winemakers during harvest.  Harvest, for better or worse, is a crucible of 16 hour days, in fact that it’s so bad that winemaker spouses joke that there are harvest widows, those left behind during the 12 weeks of average 16 hour days.  Some elementary […] The post Harvest

Rhone Varietals List

#XperienceTravelTheTaylorWay I’ve been asked by a few customers about which grapes are part of the Rhone varietals and which one’s are not.  Truthfully, I do enjoy Rhone’s moreso than most people do, so  I should have probably written this up some time ago and yes, these end up in our wine clubs probably more often than […] The post Rhone

What Wine Goes With Steak?

#XperienceTravelTheTaylorWay Ok, so this is the first in what I expect is going to be a longer wine pairing guide with food, since food/wine pairings do matter.  So what wine goes with steak?
