Vintages Wine Panel: Here’s an offer you can’t refuse. Cheeky Charles Back of Fairview Wines and his ubiquitous goats are at it again with this special ‘family blend’ featuring the Italian varieties Sangiovese (54%) and Barbera (28%) as well as international superstar Cabernet Sauvignon (18%). Just in time for the holiday season, it’s the perfect gift for that wine-loving movie buff or goat herder in your life, or enjoy it yourself . You won’t fughetaboudit. My note: I love the sense of humour on this label and hey, the wine is good too! Not complex but what the heck do you want at this price? Ripe blackberries and black cherries. Smooth and full-bodied. A terrific grazing wine!

Red, White & Drunk all over by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean writes about wine with a sensuous obsession... and often laugh-out-loud funny... Terrific.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
