Hey Bill, glad to see that you discovered the Northern California Wine community.  You should check out the California's Central Coast Wine Scene community, too!  Whatever existing reviews you have that you feel would be great in those communities, you can add them by clicking on "Add to a Community" underneath the title of any of your reviews.  Cheers! :)

Yep checked into them as well, makes me considering opening my own community. The "add to community" is a fantastic tool. Thanks for your help.
April 05, 2010
Glad you like it! And yes, you should totally start your own community! Like a CuveeCorner one, or some other themed one, like wines for seafood, or wines from a certain region :)

Awesome, how about you? That gentlemen opposite of you must keep ya pretty busy? Just got back from a trip a few weeks ago and worked a wine bottling line last weekend. Yeah that Quintessa review sounds interesting, I have some of their wines they sent to me as samples, which I still have not opened and I have a Montes tasting I still need to write up. Then this week I've been invited to a swanky new wine bar here in San Diego @ the Ivy Hotel downtown. Just becoming Mr. A-list for invites, but not too sure how?
September 28, 2009
Well, because you're Mr. Go-To for wine and you're cool ;p I'm so glad to hear that life's treating you well. So good to see you back on here! How do you like all of our new features?
September 30, 2009
Very good new features and they are very helpful! and hey thanks for compliment, but my wife somehow has a way different perspective on the coolness factor. But wives keep us (men) anchored in reality! Thanks again though! I'll write a review about the Ivy Ultra Wine Lounge and Bar, boy they've a LOT of bad press online! But I will objective as possible, cheers!

Hey Bill- how've you been? Busy with the Examiner? Thought you might enjoy @Jon_Wollenhaupt's review of Quintessa wines and I wanted to let you know that we miss you around here! Hope all is well!

Hey Bill! I thought you might want to check out my Best Warm-Weather Wines $10 and under list, I'd love to see what you think or better yet what your list would be! You are the Wine King in all of our wine communities as well, congrats!

Hey Bill- where have you been? I miss reading your amazing wine reviews! We have A TON of  wine Tags
that could use your expert attention...Hope all is well!
July 10, 2009
Hey, I Sorry I've been off the grid lately but with a new job and helping out at a friends winery and writing for the examiner. I am a pretty busy boy. Thanks for checking up on me, other wise all is well and I hope you're the same. Have a great weekend. Cheers!
July 10, 2009
Wow...quite a busy bee! Well, I'm glad to hear that things are going so well for you- that actually sounds like heaven, a perfect mix of writing and "wining"!
July 10, 2009
So I threw up a few post I've written for the examiner. Hope you like them. A slice of heaven yes indeed! Going to be writing and wining at a Twitter taste live tonight over at Eagles Nest Winery and on Saturday driving up to La Costa to interview another wine store owner. Have a great weekend!
July 15, 2009
How was the Eagles Nest Winery tasting and your weekend? Ahhhh...I just love your life. I'll be in Napa in a month, so I'll have to hit you up for some info!
July 15, 2009
It was awesome, thanks for asking! The Opera Company started us off (not my cup of tea) but it was interesting! Definitely hit me up as I will be @ the wine bloggers conference in Napa next week and should have a few more good tips for you! Have a great week!
July 15, 2009
Oh btw, the Eagles Nest wine we tasted was in my opinion very good! The 2007 Estate Syrah which I helped bottle is excellent! Their port which they did the live tweet tasting is sooo good! Great for an after dinner drink, they sell it for $40 in 375ml bottle.

hey drog, I'm not very familiar with them as I do most of my wine shopping @ brick n motars. While I do get some wine shipped from a couple places where I am on their "allocation" list. I did a quick search of a Chianti they are offering and they have a good price. But what you have to watch out for is "shipping charges" which tend to vary greatly for the same weight packages and will bring the price per bottle back up to what you can find in a store near you. So if you are interested in buying online, then I would look for places which offer free shipping on purchases of six or more bottles. Frankly though this is not the time of the year to be purchasing wine which will be shipped, it is much too hot! If you need to buy some wine during the warm months then head to your local wine store which has appropriate climate control and weekend tasting schedules. This way you try before you buy and skip the shipping charges and the aggrevation of heated red wines and waiting for your delivery because you have to sign for the package. Hope this info was helpful! Cheers!
July 10, 2009
Thanks for the info...I much prefer to shop at regular stores as well. Good point about the shipping. Do you mind if I ask what allocation lists you are on?
July 10, 2009
No problem at all, I'm currently with Justin, Kosta Browne, Sea Smoke and Patricia Green. Locally, I purchase wine from Leonesse and Eagles Nest Winery (who makes a great ruby style port). Past contributors to my wine collection, Testarossa, Byington, Rusack and V. Sattui. who I still love and admire their wines but I periodically shift my tastes.
July 10, 2009
I buy direct from Sea Smoke, Carlisle, Merry Edwards and Quilceda Creek. I tried Kosta Brown, but it seems like their prices have shot up due to the high scores they got. I go easy on the Sea Smoke and Quilceda though. I will check out the others you mentioned. Thanks
July 10, 2009
You have good taste in wine my friend! I would be drinking Quilceda Creek but find them a little expensive. I am willing to pay for well made Pinot, as you can see PN really dominates my list. If you like Pinot for a good price you may want to check out WillaKenzie. I am thinking seriously about getting back in their club, Triple Black Slopes comes to mind!
July 10, 2009
I will definitely check it out. Thanks for the recommendation. I don't buy much of the Quilceda, except they make a delicious red table wine for around $30. It is great. I only get a few of the cabs each year.

Hey Cuvee...have you heard of Wines 'Til Sold Out? I just discovered them and wondered if you knew anything about the site. The values look pretty good. Thanks

Thanks so much, I'm so glad I was able to attend the Graduation!
Posted to CuveeCornerWineBlog's profile May 27, 2009
Congrats to your son on graduating HS, Bill! :)

Have you read @drifter51's review of When the Rivers Ran Red...? You might like it!
May 05, 2009
Hey, just wanted to let you know my page impressions are way up since joining lunch! Thanks so much for the invite!
May 08, 2009
I'm so glad that we could help you out- thank YOU for being our resident wine go-to genius! I'm headed to Santa Rosa (Monte Rio) this weekend and can't wait to have some great Northern California wine tasting experiences since both my mom and myself are winos LOL!
May 08, 2009
Ah that's very generous of you to say! Much appreciated! There are some great wines to taste in that area, have a great time!

Hey Bill! I wanted to know if you had any suggestions on a nice winery for a bridal shower in the San Jose/Santa Cruz area...I'm planning my best friend's shower and need it to be close enough to where she lives for transportation issues- THANKS!
April 24, 2009
Sure, no problem there is Byington in Santa Cruz which I believe would be perfect! They make some awesome Chardonnay and a fantastic Cab Franc! Also the perfect place to host that type of event! Here's the link: Byington Vineyard & Winery
April 24, 2009
Thanks so much, Bill! I KNEW you'd have the perfect answer!
April 24, 2009
Sure, no problem anytime!

Woohoo! I am so excited that you are part of the Lunch family! I love wine but am a total amateur. Thanks for great reviews!
April 21, 2009
Thanks so much! Lunch has been a great experience for me and I am happy folks are enjoying my wine reviews! I hope the reviews will encourage you to check out new and different wines. Cheers!
April 22, 2009
:) I surely will- maybe one day I'll know enough to write a decent review on one!
Posted to CuveeCornerWineBlog's profile April 17, 2009
Hey Bill! I just wanted to check in with you to see if you had any thoughts or concerns about the site...hope all is well. I LOVE your reviews and have retweeted quite a few!
April 20, 2009
Hey, thx for the tweets! I appreciate the help in getting the word out about my blog. All is well thx for asking! I have a few suggestions, which could make it easier, first with the notifications it would nice to just reply from the there without having to go to that page to leave a comment. Second, having automatic cropping of the pix is kind of a pain. If I want to crop it would be nice to have the option if I want it cropped, but I don't want it to be automatic. That's it for now, have a great week!
April 20, 2009
Thanks so much Bill- I will definitely let everyone know.

Whoa, Bill, you're quickly becoming Lunch's resident wine expert!  I've got a wine question for you.  After reading @tbrucia's pesto review, I just had pick up a jar of pesto, so it looks like I'm gonna be eating pesto over pasta for the next week or so.  What would be some good wine pairings for that?
Posted to CuveeCornerWineBlog's profile April 12, 2009
Nice wine blog, Bill! I just recommended your reviews to @someguynameddylan. So, since you're such a wine guy, I was wondering if you have any take on ice wines? I hear it's sweeter (right up my alley!), but is the process of fermenting frozen grapes kind of a faux pas to true wine lovers?
Posted to CuveeCornerWineBlog's profile April 12, 2009
WINE BLOG?! Wow... you rock. I'd love to read some wine reviews! I'm a Reisling fan looking to branch out-- any suggestions?
Posted to CuveeCornerWineBlog's profile April 02, 2009
Hey Cuvee Corner! Welcome to Lunch...awesome pic and bio. I can't wait to read your reviews on here. Also, I've made a game in ExilaRATE to help you build your Network What's Your Favorite Wine?,
April 07, 2009
