The articles below are diverse and hard to categorize. As a group, they comprise my favorite part of this site, and they are certainly the most distinctive part of the site.  Others may give you tasting notes.  Others may give you Bulletin Boards.  But  few if any give you a collection of articles like these.  You get cutting edge commentary like  The Storage Nightmare: How YOU Get Screwed.    You get articles that are professional in nature.  Many have been professionally published elsewhere, like How To Visit Bordeaux.  Some, like  My Dinner With Mario, a personal favorite, or Magnums at Daniel, NYC continue, I hope,  a tradition of food and wine writing best epitomized by A.J. Liebling in his classic little book about the old days in Paris,  "Between Meals."  Others mingle together some of the wildest events in cyberspace with wine lore and legend, like Cyberspace Comedy in 3 Parts: R. Parker, producer, or Close Encounters of the Boob Kind or The Sommelier Competition, Los Angeles.  I trust that there is enough diversity here to provide something interesting for everyone. 

NB: In the early days of the site, many "articles" were just compilations of tasting notes in narrative form from special events.  Those articles no longer get written as tasting notes now go in the tasting notes section, but a few examples are still below.
