Wine Cellar Roundup – The Friday Edition #3: Where Corkscrew Came From And More!

October 8th, 2010

It’s officially autumn and getting darker at night and chillier during the day. Except for this weekend when it’s going to be 87 degrees in Southern California. Earthquake weather, I’m telling you! Hopefully your house is getting spookier every day with Halloween decorations. I know we have a big job this weekend getting all tricked out.  At least it’s not Christmas decorations, right? On to the good stuff…

Cork or Screw? Ahh, the argument just keeps popping up on cork vs screw top but Don Baker from the Dayton, Ohio wine recommendations Biz Journal gives some great wine recommendations as well.

Speaking of corks, do you know where the corkscrew came from? Now you have an amazing opportunity to find out. Your welcome.

Coming from the ‘make up your mind, already!’ side of things… Can you drink during your pregnancy, or not?? I had a glass of wine the day before I realized I was pregnant and felt guilty for two months until I saw my baby on the ultrasound. My Mother however drank several times a week when I was in her tummy. I THINK I’m okay…

I seemed to be drawn to the controversy side of things this week. Actually, it’s every week but this is pretty good. Palate Press does a great back and forth commentary on ratings or NO ratings on wine. Frankly, I just want it to taste good! My view is I want all the information on it. Did Robert Parker give it a 95? Did Wine Enthusiast say it was terrible? What did YOU say about it? Just tell me everything and I’ll make my own decision.

Don’t be annoying when describing wine. Aren’t sure how to do that? Here are a few tips.
