Worth Reading: And well, listening and viewing too

The Best of the Rest in wine this week:

The countdown is on to DrinkLocalWine.com 2012 in Denver next Saturday, so The Wine Curmudgeon and I do a prospective look at the conference and a retrospective glance at how the Locapour Movement has grown since we started this four years ago. And we do it in an old-fashioned podcast which Jeff Siegel posted on his site. Don’t worry, we don’t claim all the credit for the rise of local wine, but we sure have fun talking about it. And if you missed my appearance on the Kojo Nnamdi show on Wednesday, talking about Virginia and Maryland wine, the show is here. Click on the little “Listen” button on the upper left.

Just as regional wine gets better, California wine goes to pot. Literally.

What’s the best white wine in Virginia? Not viognier, but merlot, according to one festival reported in the Richmond Times-Dispatch.

Harpers Wine & Spirit Trades Review has this headline: “Chinese consumer tastes mature” – which had me tweeting, “But most remain underripe.”

And Dr. Vino posts a clandestine video of the Master Sommelier final exams. No, not really, but where does he find these things?
