I love the Ridge Three Valleys for an everyday wine, but only when I get it on sale at Astor. They regularly have it on sale for $15 a bottle.


well, well, long time no wine review?! and, even longer time since i've seen your excited face shopping for vino. you would be excited about the center and what will soon be happening upstairs so let me know if you want the tour. as for table wine, one could make an argument for the cantina rotaliana di mezzolombardo teroldego. we were tasting the new '05 tonight, which just arrived yesterday, and i forgot how light it was while still having quite a bit going on. for a few dollars more, there's also the produttori del barbaresco langhe nebbiolo. as you know, amazing. i also brought home a washington state lemberger, i know i know, new world, the other night which was surprisingly delicious. anyway, say hi sometime...

Brooklyn Bridge

Sounds like a wonderful way to celebrate Fall as we acclimate to the cooler weather and fight the depression of daylight savings time.


@ brooklyn bridge: agreed, 'tis truly the season to embrace the harvest - i was at the cadman plaza farmers' market today. stocked up on romanesco to roast, along with brussels sprouts with pancetta and lemon. buon appetito!

@ eric: hey there! i am desperate for a stock-up at astor – will stop by soon. very good call on the teroldego [or “t” as they call it in trentino]; that deserves an entry soon. just back from drinking and dining my way through puglia and basilicata, hence the hiatus, but blog entries to follow. hope all’s well!
