Happy New Year!


“It is the very mark of the spirit of rebellion to crave for happiness in this life.”
-Henrik Ibsen

It’s tradition for me now on New Year’s Day to open up the stats page and compile a list of the 5 most popular pours of the newly past year. I have a decent idea of what a few of them will be, and there are always a couple of fun surprises. I was intrigued to see the Leonucci Stefano Montignanello LS010 2010, a review I did in 2013, have such a resurgence in 2016.

Here are the wines that received the most attention in 2016:

5. Leonucci Stefano Montignanello LS010 2010

4. Lone Dove Wines ‘Cuvée Noir’

3. Castello di Farnetella Chianti Colli Senesi DOCG 2012

2. Montes Trio Tasting: Three Diverse Wines to Enjoy All Summer

And the most popular post of 2016 was one of the most enjoyable seminars I attended:

1. Romagna Sangiovese: “Good Food, Good Wine, Good Life”
