Hi Wine Lover,
Something Missing?
The events you see on our website (and here in The Juice) are posted by event hosts in your area -- restaurants, retailers, wineries, brewpubs, festival organizers, etc.

But, if something's missing, you can help us turn that around:

  • Tell us about any food, wine, beer and spirits events that are not in our listings. We’ll contact the event hosts to explain the benefits of posting their event information on our site.

  • Word of mouth is important for us. Please mention to others, especially any event hosts you might know.
Time For W.I.N.E.
Perhaps you've heard that the annual Wine International Naming Exposition (W.I.N.E.) opens this week (April 1). This year, the judges -- from 47 countries -- will evaluate potential names for an experimental wine made from grape jelly. Yes, it sounds weird to me, too.

For the first time, W.I.N.E. will consider names submitted by the public. I've already turned in my suggestion (Jammin' Juice), but if you think you can come up with a better name, submit your entry here.

Georgia Winegrape 2009 Harvest: Washed Out?
By: Hope S. Philbrick

After eight days of nonstop rain and with so much of the Atlanta area flooded, I wondered what the storms have meant for North Georgia's wineries. For a front line report I checked in with three winery owners: Craig Kritzer, David Harris and Mary Ann Hardman.Craig Kritzer, Frogtown Cellars in Dahlonga"Frogtown is harvesting, as I respond to you," reported Kritzer at 6:30 p.m. on September 21. "We were fortunate to have harvested over 70 percent of our fruit before the last seven days of rain." In fact, the day before the rains started, Frogtown Cellars had harvested 30 tons of fruit that was then processed over the next two days. "We could not harvest more because we were out of harvest bins," explained Kritzer."As a result of our decision to take fruit earlier than we have in the past," he said, "I would say the weather will have an impact, but not anywhere like 2007."

The term recioto may be derived from this practice. An increase in maturity of the grapes between the "ears" and the main body of the bunch (up to about 1 degree Baume) has been measured in some cases.
