Hell yeah I remember Kiddie City, and it wasn’t just in Jersey, I had one near me in Baltimore growin up. It definitely beat toy-r-us.

I’ve had a pinot gris ROSE from Reuilly in Loire. Had a gelatin thing going on in the nose. Neat to try, but I wouldn’t buy it.

qotd1:Unless Doc Brown returns my call, I doubt I’ll be able to make it
qotd2: had a lucien albrecht cuvee romanus 2005 that brought serious q.p.r.

    GV,
    Although it would be a great trip, I won’t be able to make it out on 3/29 from Hawaii. When we do move back to the east coast, I’ll definitely make the trip to the store. I’ve been discovering a bunch of new varietals lately and haven’t yet tried Pinot Gris or Pinto Grigio that I can remember. Started out as a red fan and have recently started trying and buying the whites. Chard, Sauv Blanc, and Gewurz are the ones I’ve tried so far, but will seek out some PGs.

    QOTD: I had an off-dry style Pinot Gris from Fielding Estate that I enjoyed, which is saying a lot since I generally don’t drink PG.

    The only Pinot Gris I’ve ever had was from Sterling Vineyards. I recall really enjoying it.

    1: OMG I wish
    2: I really enjoy Alsatian Pinot Gris (great with a mushroom and bacon omlette), I may have a line on some 01 Grand Crus from Josmeyer. The other one that stands out is the A to Z Pinot Gris from Oregon for it’s great value (liked that one with a salad with bacon and scallops on it).

    Good show – I am a definite fan of the Pinot G’s.

    QOTD 1 – I am not sure whether I can make it. I have a trip planned to Juarez, MX and it may interfere.

    QOTD 2 – Alois Legeder from Alto Adige – rocks!

    I want to come to the party but haven’t figured out where to stay yet. I have had the Chelhalem Pinot Gris and about 1/2 dozen others from Oregon and Washington. My favorite Pinot Gris are from Alsace though.

    Hey Gary

    Did you realise that the Grigio in Pinot Grigio is pronounced Greejoe and not Greezeeoh? Grigio is Italian which means you pronounce it this way.

    Favorite Pinot Grigio…can’t think of any. I think I’ll try one tonight. Also, what’s up with people making fun of how you speak, like the comment below mine!? You say “grigio” however you want. You bring real smiles to many people, and you ought not forget that. Thanks, and keep the great shows coming.

    I can honestly say I wish Drago punched Rockys head clean off in 4 so there wouldnt have been a 5 or 6. Actually I’ll go so far as saying I wish Creed did it in 1 so that would have been it. I just dont find any of the Rocky’s to be watchable. Nice color on the 2005 Fantinel Sant Helena Pinot Grigio. I could just swim in that. QOTD1: I wish I could have gone. If I had the ability to take lots of vacations Id pretty much follow you around to events and things in other states. QOTD2: I havent tasted much other than the cheap $8 a bottle kinds my parents have bought. :(
