Still around – sort of

July 26, 2011

Looks like it’s been nearly two years since my last post. Yeesh! In my own defence, I’m spending most of my time (and energy) on Twitter these days. You’ll find wine reviews & commentary there, just look for @alecstuart

But the 140-character limit is a bit frustrating, so I may return here for the occasional longer post.  And I’m also doing some writing for http://www.savourwinnipeg.com, so you can watch for me there too.

Happy summer!

I recently added a Twitter feed to the sidebar. You’ll find a few wine reviews in there mixed in with the usual nonsensical Twitter stuff.

Not sure what the relevance of the term ‘coastal’ is, since I thought most of California’s Zin vineyards (Zinyards??) are inland. But whatever they call it, BV has done a great job with this wine.

A milestone

March 24, 2009

In the time between my last post and now, the site just hit 30,000 page views. Considering how rarely I’ve been able to post over the last year or so, that’s not bad at all!

Cheese @ Mise

March 24, 2009

I finally got a chance to run a tasting in the new Mise location (Corydon at Lilac). They’ve done a great job of fixing the place up and one of the bonuses is that they are running a store alongside the restaurant. A store that sells many varieties of great cheese. And they have a private room upstairs which is perfectly suited for wine tastings.

Cheese. Wine. I’m sure you see where this is headed. This post is a little longer than normal, but I really enjoyed this tasting and wanted to share my thoughts.
