The post “Historic & Legendary” (Madeira and Port Ringers from Wine Future 2023 in Portugal) appeared first on 1 Wine Dude. If, like me, you’re a fan of fortified wines, then the Wine Future 2023 conference held in Coimbra, Portugal saved its best for last. The final guided tasting event at the conference, helmed by Portuguese fortified wine expert Richard Mayson, was titled “Historic and Legendary Madeira and Porto” and, considering my history with both, the only way I was going to miss this one was if I’d died (I didn’t) from fandom bliss after having met Bruce Dickinson earlier during ..read more

Let’s travel back in time about six months or so, to when I almost lost my mind because I got to meet hard rock legend Iron F*CKING Maiden’s Bruce F*CKING Dickinson at the Wine Future 2023 conference, held in Coimbra, Portugal.

WF 2023 was chock full of incredibly interesting panel discussions and keynote addresses, and it had another set of events tha ..read more

The post Total Eclipse of the Heart of RRV (Merry Edwards Cuvée Eclipse 2017) appeared first on 1 Wine Dude. Did you know that there was a total solar eclipse back on April 8, 2024? You did?!?? Of course you did. I can tell by the explosion of poorly-photographed eclipse pics that took over my social media scrolling feeds on that date (and the day after that). Apparently, several (most?) of you didn’t know that your phone cameras, like your retinas, aren’t set up to handle properly photographing such an astral phenomenon. Or, you knew but didn’t care. Anyway… Thankfully, someone had a plan fo ..read more
