In an attempt to combat rising fuel prices, British Airways is channeling their inner Doc Brown. The airline's new project, know as GreenSky, will convert garbage and waste into jet fuel. Sound familiar? It should. It's basically the Mr. Fusion device last seen rigged up to the engine of a certain time traveling DeLorean. Marty McFly would approve.

So pretty!

Have you ever heard of eggs mimosa? Neither had I until my French sweetheart introduced me to them. They're like deviled eggs, except they're not deviled. Instead, you stuff hard boiled egg whites and then grate the yolks over everything, resulting in a gorgeous platter reminiscent of the puff-like brilliant yellow mimosa flowers that abound in Provence and along the Mediterranean coast.

One of the most valued elements of the vertical was the tasting book that revealed the myriad of details about each vintage, making it possible to almost taste its unique personality as one experienced the wine. One of my favorites, for example, was 2005. The notes revealed the growing season was extremely dry, but that cool nights during the summer brought around an even ripening of all the grape varieties leading to a wine with concentration and aromatic intensity. The cepage, about a third of …

Greece is making inroads on American shelves and wine lists. Of its 300 + indigenous varieties, though, only 8 or 10 make it into the states. Taylor recently tried some of these and was, in her words, "pretty blown away."

It has been 10 years since the movie "Sideways" made Merlot a laughingstock with the snobby character Miles's angry remark about "#$% &ing Merlot," a laugh line that actually drove down Merlot sales in the U.S. while starting a mini-boom for Pinot Noir.

Cameron Hughes is a master when it comes to sourcing great wine sources and then offering them at tremendous savings.

This wine is a MONSTER, cool climate Cabernet... Blue Chip stuff all the way. In case you are unfamiliar with the fruit source here, the Oak Knoll district is in Southern Napa near Carneros.

Ciderberry was a real show stopper. This an oak aged cider, made from Rome Beauty and Stayman Winesap an then they add raspberry wine pressed straight from the farm and blended with that oak aged cider. Fruity and tart, the acidity keeps this wine honest, and makes it into a lovely rose' styled wine instead of a funky, sweet blush. A complex wine.

Overall, a very good impression was made. And some excellent wines. This is a cidery and meadery to look out for. Big things are going …
