Back to Wine Basics 2012 – Every time you try a bottle of wine it can be different from the last time you tried it.   This can range from storage conditions to even how it ages in the bottle (a complex process partly driven by acidity and tannins).  This means wine from last year may not be the same as it was when first sampled, so it’s time to re-evaluate what beginners should start on.   Starting with the noble six (Riesling, Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon), this provides an overview of the basic classics of the wine world.

Pumpkinfest 2011 – Looking for a good pumpkin brew? Then look no farther than at the best of the best, and the rest list of First Pour Wine’s pumpkin based reviews.
