A Night on the Town with Marco Tintero

by Anthony Lynch Meeting Marco Tintero for the first time, several years ago at his winery in the Piedmont town of Mango, proved an exciting event for me. A longtime drinker—guzzler, if we’re being honest—of his humbly priced frizzanti, I had long looked forward to getting to know the man behind them. And Marco did […]

Antoine Arena’s Rosé

by Kermit Lynch During 2016 I had the pleasure of going wine hunting in five satellites: Pays Basque, Catalonia, Corsica, Sardinia, and Sicily. I imagine them breaking the colonial chains that bind and forming a United Independent States for strength in numbers while controlling their own destinies. Corsica has been free only a handful of […]

A Call to Arms: Rosé All Year

by Anthony Lynch American wine drinkers have come a long way in the past forty years.

Consequently, I have compiled a list of proven methods to properly chill your […]

A Tour of Bugey with Patrick Bottex

Patrick Bottex makes one of the most delicious beverages in existence. He runs his tiny operation in the little hamlet of La Cueille, located near the town of Poncin in the Bugey region, somewhere between Lyon and Geneva. Despite the proximity to these major cities and the nearby autoroute, it might nonetheless be an understatement […]

The Best Rosé In The World

Reynald Delille of Domaine de Terrebrune seems to have made it a rule when pouring his rosé for visitors to slyly say (in English), “the best rosé in the world.” It comes out sheepish and humble, but he believes it, and he’s got a cellar full of back vintages of the rosé to prove his […]
