The State of the Industry

That seems counterintuitive: Red wine good for your teeth? Then how do you explain Jay Miller's brown little nubs?

Saving the world, one glass at a time: An interesting article on wine and carbon emissions, specifically Chilean wineries' attempts to reduce theirs. I noticed just the other day a carbon-neutral label on a bottle of Cono Sur Pinot Noir, so it's funny to see an article about exactly this today. Kudos to them.

A Cautionary Tale: Seriously. Don't drink and drive.

Constellation Drops Hardys: "The business is no longer consistent with Constellation’s strategy." Apparently that strategy involves making money.

We all saw it coming: Washington yields will likely be down in 2011 due to the early freeze.

Why do I never find things like this?: $30,000 Latour found in restaurant's cellar unexpectedly. Honestly, if I found that, I would just drink it.

I'll believe it when I see it: Wine prices to fall in 2011. Also, "Riesling will rise?" What?

Seems like a lot of work just for a vending machine: "Oenophiles must pass breathalyzers, swipe their IDs, then show their pictures to a state official observing via closed circuit TV before buying their wine."
