Special Report: Morellino di Scansano, Tuscany’s Other Sangiovese

In the past decade, this appellation has emerged as an outstanding source of delicious, moderately priced wines, most of them available for less than $200/case wholesale. We look behind the scenes at this DOCG, and review 46 of our favorite current releases.

Vintage 2013 Master Sommeliers

We profile all five Americans who passed the Master Sommelier diploma examination in 2013. It is not only where they now work and what they do that is so interesting, but also what they think and how they view their roles as mentors, advocates, and professionals that gives insights into where and how they will help lead the industry in the years ahead.


We pose the question, ‘Shouldn’t your wines by the glass reflect your overall wine program?”
