This spate of frosty temps is far reaching. Check these great photos of frost protection activity in California.
Jerry Hall (used to be married to Mick Jagger) runs a great wine review page called Winewaves.
Reviews "value" wines. Great photos of labels and such. Has a category in each review where he notes the kind of closure the bottle has.
Looking around for Pinot stories today led me to the Bottle Room in Central Florida where there's considerable yack about plastic and natural corks. He has a little picture of his cork collection all lined up. I'm sorry, but I had a little laugh.
A site called Fine Wine Press had quite an extensive review of a flight of international Pinots that is worth a read. Nice site too. Great quote by my pal E. Hemingway in the top right corner - "Wine is one of the most civilised things in the world". They also have a weather bar on the lower right sidebar that shows what's happening at various wine places all over the world. So where's Penticton, BC? Feeling a little like Rodney Dangerfield here.
