New Weekly Feature – Top Blogs & Articles Of The Week

I am an obsessed wine geek, there is no doubt. Our house & farm is covered in wine books, wine making or tasting materials, wine samples, glasses and more. I’d furnish the entire house in wine barrel furniture if I was allowed.

As a result, I read

a lot of weekly material, blogs, wine writers etc. Simple Hedonisms was supposed to be more about educational wine writing than it has evolved into, although in my defense I do try and incorporate some small nugget or three into many of my reviews.

Some weeks I may feature 4-5 articles, some I may only have one, or even forget, but I will try to do my best. If you find this weekly article useful as it evolves, share your thoughts.

Top Picks:

(1) Richard Jennings: Rhone Rangers Tasting “Summary”

I have long admired Richard’s detailed Cellartracker notes, there was never any doubt how dedicated this man is to capturing and sharing information about wine. His latest, almost breath taking record from the Rhone Rangers San Francisco event is an incredible resource:

(2) Jon Bonné: Sonoma Coast is a sweet spot for Syrah

I write regularly about the virtues of cool climate Syrah. One of my favorite wine writers, Jon Bonné of the San Francisco viagra fast delivery Chronicle, does a great summary piece:

Sonoma Coast is a sweet spot for Syrah

(3) Fred Swan interviews Rhone Pioneer John Alban on the First Hospice du Rhone

Norcal Wine is one of the best Bay area resources for wine education, and intellectual, investigative journalism. With the 20th Anniversary of Rhone mecca Hospice du Rhone only 2 weeks away, this is a timely,

insightful piece.

great week!
