Bordeaux Wine Futures

#XperienceTravelTheTaylorWay Buying futures in wine, seems like the stuff only the very, very serious would even attempt right? Yes.  Probably even a smaller subset than that. Bordeaux is one of then few regions of the the world that actively sells futures.  You’ll find an odd and end Napa Valley winery doing something similar (I think Nickel […] The post Bordeaux

What a Trump Presidency Might Mean for the Wine Industry

#XperienceTravelTheTaylorWay It’s been said that there are a number of things you should never talk about on a corporate blog, politics likely being chief among them.  But, Uncorked Ventures is a small business and since I wade into politics on social media as it is, I thought people might be interested in how a Donald Trump […] The post What

What’s Happening in 2019?

#XperienceTravelTheTaylorWay I’ve been ruminating on how to move forward with Uncorked Ventures for a while now. I survived the holiday rush. Let’s start with some of what’s already happened.

Felicette Wine Review

#XperienceTravelTheTaylorWay Felicette is a wine that should be available at specialty shops near you.  A French import, it’s from the lesser known pays d’oc that’s a small section of the Langudoc…..yeah, yeah I know, that’s a lesser known region itself.  This is the region where the French experiment though, with 300 days of sun of year […] The post Felicette

Apothic Red Review

#XperienceTravelTheTaylorWay First, I hope you this Apothic Red review.  I’ve started doing a few of these reviews of mass marketed and mass produced wines, in large part because for my cheap wine club, this is my competition. The under $10 or so bottle purchases are the folks, that might step up to the $20 or so […] The post Apothic

Arizona Wine in Phoenix

#XperienceTravelTheTaylorWay Ok, so before I go on…..this was something of a last minute trip.  I have a couple of family members with consistent, recurrent, severe asthma and if you’ve been watching the news….we’ve had the worst air quality in the world locally. Plus, my little section of the east bay simply isn’t equipped to deal with […] The post Arizona

Patron Saint of Wine

#XperienceTravelTheTaylorWay In fact, there’s more than one patron saint of wine. If we look at the history of the Catholic Church, it’s largely centered on the old world wine production regions of Italy and France.  In fact, that’s where the Papacy has been based over the years. Given the number of regions in both Italy and […] The post Patron

How Many Grapes in a Bottle of Wine?

#XperienceTravelTheTaylorWay Ok, so this is complicated. Beware, there’s going to be some math coming up. There are 750ml in a bottle of wine. A case of wine has 12 bottles. If you’re keeping track, that case of wine is right at 2.378 gallons of wine in a case. Generally speaking we think of a single ton […] The post How
