Wine Reviews Tasting Notes and Education for the Non-Snob, by Vino Joe, a Certified Specialist of Wine (CSW)

Ask Vino Joe

What wine with dinner? How long should I age this wine? What’s the best Cabernet? Will my friends notice if I serve a cheap Pinot Grigio?

Your wine question can be answered by Vino Joe, in the privacy of your own email box and nowhere within earshot of the local snob.

Please note, however, that Vino Joe will not answer questions regarding the value of old wines. This is because an old wine’s value is largely based on recent auction pricing and on its storage history. Since Vino Joe does not have the kind of money to buy wines at auction, he doesn’t have a good grasp of the auction market. Plus, he can’t certify that you’ve kept the wine in optimum cellar conditions. So, for questions about old bottles, we suggest that you contact an auction house.
