by Gary Hays June 16th, 2015| Well-Stocked Bar
A person’s budget, or lack thereof, and the number of guests they generally entertain at any one given time, has everything to do with that person's version and definition of a well-stocked bar means to them. A few top-shelf bottles of this and that, to a full-blown array of

by Charles Wangersky May 29th, 2015| Red Wine, Regional, White Wine, Wine
When we think of Austria, we tend to think of an almost Swiss attitude towards purity and cleanliness, and we see this also in their wines. Very few red wines are produced in Austria, but the extreme variability of the soils means that limiting the production to only white

One of the more common pastimes in Vienna is not touring the local vineyards as such, but walking through them. There are a number of working vineyards on the outskirts of the city, and people will stroll through them, much as we do through our civic parks, as a

by Charles Wangersky May 15th, 2015| Regional, Wine
While grapes have been grown in the east of Austria since the Middle Ages, and wine has been a part of Austrian life at least that long, it is only recently that the Austrian authorities have started to regulate and certify specific wines as being developed in particular areas

If you took one of the tours of Dijon and the Burgundy region which we mentioned last week, you will have tasted several samples of the finest wines of the region. We’ll be looking here at some of the wines from that region that you might be interested to

At a time when most people's New Year's resolutions are beginning to falter, we here at Parched No More are looking to keep the momentum going by suggesting plenty of guilt-free, low-calorie beverages. On the spirits side of things, we've been on a kick with

We've been on a boxed-wine roll as of late, for sure! Those of you who have been asking me about various boxed wines have undoubtedly received your fair share of information these past few weeks. For those of you looking for more traditional, bottled information, do

Review: Almaden Heritage Mountain Chablis

Almaden
Chablis, California
$18.99/5L

I've been getting into boxed wine more and more lately. If I'm being honest, it's the cost — the value I get out of a 5 liter box of "good" or "okay" wine has tremendous sway since I could easily spend nearly double the amount on something

Review: Peter Vella Chardonnay

by Jason Lightner December 24th, 2014| Wine
Peter Vella
Chardonnay, California
$16.99/5L

We're going to deviate a little bit this week and, instead of focusing on reputation or historic appeal, we're going to take a look at stigma and class. Wine is of course (and has almost always been) one of those things that attracts so-called "connoisseurs" to the

Alamos, Chardonnay, 2012

Alamos
Argentina, Chardonnay, 2012
$10.99

It's been quite some time since we've sampled the inviting and humbling characteristics of Argentinian wine. The wine from the vineyards of one of South America's great regions are ripe with incredibly complex flavor profiles and quality that is rarely matched. Alamos is named for the poplar

Ruffino
Italy, Pinot Grigio, 2013
$13.99

It's become an interestingly white fall and I can't say I'm terribly disappointed. As a wine lover who typically fancies himself a nice bold red during the blustery months of autumn, I've grown fond of kicking back with a crisp white here and there. There's nothing wrong

Concha y Toro, Frontera Chardonnay, 2013

Concha y Toro
Chile, Chardonnay, 2013
$7.99

While we may not be heading off the beaten path, our taste of Chilean wine this week is a slight bit different than those in previous adventures. Instead of seeking out a bold and invigorating red varietal, we're looking at a Chardonnay. Not a typical
