Welcome to the Opinionated Wine Guide website. This is a companion site to the book Pour Me Another: An Opinionated Guide to Gold Country Wines 2011, published in June 2011. The book is a static thing, but wines are not. I will be posting updates, additional tasting notes and new information about the Gold Country wines and wineries. In addition, I will be posting tasting notes and information about other wines and regions.
I believe that wine tasting should be fun. My approach to tasting is personal and irreverent. No pretentious fluffery here! Every person’s palate is different and the wines I like, you may not. But that is one of the things that makes wine tasting so much fun. There is always something to talk about. So feel free to join in on the discussions.
