A bottle of red made with data.
Finding the perfect wine used to mean going to a good wine store, discussing your future meal with a sales person and trying to remember the wine the next time you buy. Now all you have to do is go to a website, like that of Bordeaux-based fine wine merchant Millesima. With data, they can help any customer, anywhere in the world, select the right bottle, for the right meal, the right climate, time of year, you name it. Plus you don’t have to soak off the label to remember the name and vintage when you want to buy it again. Explore more stories →
Is it wine o’clock yet?
So this week I head north to Agua Dulce to learn wine blending. Now initially when booking this course, I thought it was more about wine “making” and not so much blending; but alas I was wrong. But nonetheless it was still an interesting thing to learn.
We started by venturing to the distillery where we sampled four different types of wine essential to the blending (Merlot, Syrah, Cabernet, and Sangiovese). We talked about the different tastes they’ll give your wine, and keeping that in mind while blending your own.
After some testing and mixing I decided on a blend that was 40% Cab, and 30% Syrah and Merlot. Can’t wait to fully imbibe it.

Having a glass of wine, working on my wine rack, and watching football. Life is good.
