  • Old vines, new gambles

    The cobblestone streets of the village of Hornija follow the slopes of the hills in this remote corner of Spain's Bierzo region -- which is to say they are steep, uneven and treacherous. Here, piles of stones pass for houses. A crude communal laundry pool...

    Young Winos: The Millennial generation is a thirsty one
    WHAT do you call a weekly wine tasting group made up of 21- to 29-year-olds? They call themselves the Young Winos of Los Angeles. The wine industry calls them its future. The Young Winos, along with other twentysomething adults across America, are the...

  • That's Right, Lodi

    James Cameron couldn't have scripted it better, the way 76-year-old Wanda Woock, grande dame of the Lodi wine country, pointed a finger at her gold brooch and then at a photograph of the very same brooch a hundred years back, glinting like pure...
  • In the Anderson Valley, slow is beautiful

    Even the silence is different here. Despite a woodpecker working furiously on the eaves of a not-too-distant water tower and the buzz of tractors trolling, the quiet—like the canopy of fog—settles around you, pulls you in and ultimately...
