If it's FAKE balling, is it really balling at all? Guinness Bling Drink fraud...

A multi-million dollar gambling fraud involving elaborate fake video feeds AND a diversion including a patsy faking the purchase of an expensive douche-a-rama cocktail that was never consumed is not interesting?

Tough room....

Radlers that don't radle....

We've done HUGE business with an Austrian Radler (Pilsner + Tunisian Grapefruit Soda at 2.5% ABV) and a couple of others, all from Europe with similar specs, most importantly LESS THAN 3% alcohol. The very WORD "radler" means "cyclist" and is actually sold as a SPORTS DRINK like Gatorade or other hy...

TN: Monumental Barolo dinner - Monfortino, Giacosa, Taurasi and La Romanee

I seem to remember on the old board an ongoing war of words over, I think, a 1971 Taurasi Radici that the majority of the folks at some tasting thought was road kill soup but a significant minority thought was wine of the night if not the year.

Anyone remember deets?

Maybe you guys could get serious about collecting and aging CHEESE: the maturation curve is much quicker.

Mark, you realize that , for many people, there is a VERY tenuous connection between collecting wine for its own sake and actually consuming it, yes?

Mourning with Stuart Beaunehead

Wondrous stuff: a local name for a Sicilian clone of moscato that is made dry as an aperitvo or as an amazing stickie after drying the grapes on black obsidian lava flows.
