Wine Forum

I noticed that there is a forum for bevs, but I didn't see one devoted to wine. I thought it might be a good idea to have a wine forum for those of us helplessly in love with food and wine pairing, making wine, etc. What do you think?

There is already an alcoholic beverages forum. I think that wine would fit nicely into that one.

Sattie, we already talk about that whenever someone has a question, OR has come up with a great pairing. Do we need a whole forum for that?

Well, now that you put it like that, no. But what I am trying to say that there are so many aspects to wine itself, I can see where a dedicated forum would be useful. Just my opinion. I'm shuttin up now.

It is being discussed. You never know what we might come up with. Since I work in a boutique-type wine shop I've got my own "opinion"

Love wine... not realy knowledgeable. A forum maybe sometimes a seperate forum can encourage discussion but sometimes it makes things too dissapated.

Some good wine advice and thoughs always appreciated.

he's a long-time friend who relocated to Asheville about 4 years ago and works in a boutique wine shop there. He used to work at Marty's in Brookline MA. Also a Jazz guitarist.

We love to exchange wine notes, stories and digs.

We have decided to give this a shot. I have created a new sub forum under the Beverages forum. It is called The Wine Cellar. It will be up as a trial. If it does not get a lot of activity then we will recombine any threads that are in it back into the alcohol sub forum that already exists so get in there and start posting
