I learned about aging Chardonnay (a wine, I might add, I usually don't care for)... The winery I work at, Ladera Vineyards, used to be Chateau Woltner and when the new owners purchased the estate and the name, along with it came hundreds of cases of Burgundian-style chardonnay dating back to 1988. No one seemed to care for it but me. Lucky, lucky me. The 93, 96, and 97 Frederique and Titus vineyards were the best of the five vineyard-specific chards that was made on Howell Mountain. I still have a few cases left which should JUST get me through this summer....


You mentioned Grape Culture (631.862.GRAPE)in your piece on the vertical tasting at Wolffer; I highly recommend you stop by there! They do in-store tastings...Jim of Water's Crest Winery was there the very same day the LI Press ran your "10 Long Island Wines.." article where you mentioned Jim's extraordinary reisling. In past months, Grape Culture has also had tastings featuring Wolffer, and more recently, Rodney Strong. Their selection is great, the staff is friendly and knowledgable, and the atmosphere is elegant--but NOT intimidating.

Their web site has downloadable coupons, a newsletter, a section where you can purchase books through Amazon and interviews with winemakers like Rick Sayre. Very impressive, and probably worth doing a write up on!
