in this issue: where do we go from here?

“A bend in the road is not the end of the road… Unless you fail to make the turn.”—Helen Keller No doubt, 2020 has been a year of challenges, of change and of mostly unnavigated waters for not only the wine industry, but the world at large. In this, our Best of Year issue, we look to the future, with aspirations and hopes for a brighter tomorrow. But we also reflect on the impactful, often tumultuous year we are closing. While many trends, topics and innovations have influenced what’s in our glass, the following five stories took center stage, forever altering the landscape of wine and the world as we know it. COVID-19 alters all aspects of life. Initial global lockdowns commencing in February and March 2020—based on scientific projections and a slow but…

away at home

MASTER THE ART OF THE ARMCHAIR VACATION As overseas jaunts remain uncertain, many seek ways to escape their living room without buying a plane ticket. For more ideas on the art of the stay-home wine vacation, we asked industry experts to weigh in. IN THE KITCHEN A celebrity chef, TV personality and author, Amanda Freitag is certainly no stranger to transporting diners, herself included. The vehicle? Memorable culinary experiences. “As we are all contained in our safe bubbles, my way to travel is to cook, taking my senses on a trip,” she says. She loves to make fresh pasta. “I recently took myself to Italy without ever leaving my kitchen.” She made a Bolognese sauce and prepared fresh tagliatelle, then popped open a Lambrusco from Modena. “I ate slices of luscious mortadella from the package while…

cabernet franc goes blanc

Parent of powerhouse red variety Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc creates herbaceous, savory reds, bright rosés and, increasingly, layered white wines. That’s right: An adventurous set of American winemakers has begun to embrace the grape in a new light and produce tradition-defying, still white offerings. Without any skin contact during the winemaking process, white Cabernet Franc doesn’t exude the same berry notes one might expect from the grape. The variety’s telltale pepperiness and lively acidity carry through, however, and resulting wines fall anywhere from zippy, like Sauvignon Blanc, to ripe or complex and smoky, like a Grüner Veltliner. Ahead, find four selections that showcase this unique expression. JACKALOPE WINE CELLARS WHITE Portland, OR In 2014, Corey Schuster, Jackalope’s owner/winemaker, made his first white Cab Franc by accident. Intended to be a rosé, the wine had lost all…

grape on the go: riesling romps around

Native to Germany’s Rhine Valley, Riesling has found great popularity worldwide. And for good reason: Though many associate the white grape with sweet wines, its shape-shifting nature means it can just as effortlessly play the role of dry, crisp apéritif, as it can be an off-dry foil to fiery Thai curry or a luscious late-harvest accompaniment to cheese. Typically high in acid, this showy variety is hardly ever shy and often yields perfumed notes of stone fruit, citrus and honeysuckle that will beckon you back for another sip. Recently on quite a global jaunt, here are three other places to find the aromatic white. AUSTRALIA Though made in Tasmania, Western Australia and Victoria, Riesling from the Clare and Eden Valleys of South Australia is considered a quality benchmark. “The Clare Valley does…
