IT’S BEEN A BLAST!!!! TIME TO MOVE!!!!

 

Well it has been a long run here on the ol’ WordPress blog. HAd a lot of fun here at my second East Village Wine Geek home. But it is time to move once again. I have been doing this wine blog thing since 2004 and am still goin! Not only that but since I have started posting I have bought the restaurant/wine bar that I have worked at for so long and opened a neat little wine shop around the corner.

I love blogging and I will not stop.

And NOW:

You will be able to see all my videos going forward on our new

ALPHABET CITY WINE CO. WEBSITE!

Here I will be able to do videos about wine and actually be able to sell them to you instead of just rambling on.

So come on by and check us out. See what videos and geekiness we got going on!

See you at www.abcwinecompany.com

Five Days In Languedoc- Roussillon: Chateau Mas Neuf

I’M BACK!

Whoa! What an Easter week I had. Running two businesses while trying to celebrate the wonders of spring holidays took me for a ride!

But I am back in the saddle again and posting my new France video!

Our second visit in Costieres De Nimes was Chateau Mas Neuf to hang out with the incredibly passionate and refreshingly opinionated Luc Beaudet. His approach to wine is simple: let the wine make itself. he practices sustainable agriculture yet is not worried about certification. Here we have yet another winemaker coming from somewhere else and landing in the Languedoc to make the wines of his dreams. Join me as I pick his brain and get a really good look at his terroir.

Enjoy! Share! Love! Drink! Wine To The People!

Five Days In Languedoc- Roussillon: Chateau Lancyre

Our second stop in LPic St. Loup was Chateau Lancyre. The family bought the property in the seventies and began the challenging process of coverting the vineyards to sustainable agriculture. We had a chance to get down and dirty with the wine geekiness and saw some pretty amazing sights and tasted some great wines!

This one is a bit longer but the info is so fun it seems to take less time what it actually is…well for me at least:
