Bottle Shock: First Look

Bottle Shock

Like steak and Cabernet or Champagne and Caviar, Mutineer Magazine believes that fine beverage and culture go hand in hand. Enter “Bottle Shock”, the new Hollywood film about wine and well… I’m not exactly sure. See the full post »

The Five Sexiest Wines


Here are 5 of the sexiest wines according to the Wine Mutineer…

5. Rose Champagne

This is a wine for all of the senses. For the ears it is a startling pop. For the eyes it is a stunning hue of pink, like a rare stone. For the nose, it is myriad of aromas ranging from simple to complex, fruity to earthy, everyday to life changing. For the palate, it is tongue tickling bubbles and bright flavors. This is a wine of young love. It is a wine to have before dinner. It is a wine of embarking, of beginning an adventure together, and if nothing else, it is a great conversation starter on those awkward first dates. See the full post »

The Smallest Bottle of Wine Ever


I have found the most incredibly useless wine innovation to date. The super small wine bottle. As certified by the Guinness Book of World Records, Klein Designs created a bottle of wine for retail sale only 3.2 cm tall (1.2 inches). That is tiny. It holds a minute amount of wine, you’d have to drink like 800 of these little bottles to even get a buzz. It’s a terrible idea. What’s more, they range in price from $20 to $90 a bottle. That’s way too much money! It even has a tiny little cork in it…stupid idea.

4 Shameful and otherwise Appalling Days to Drink


Santa Flashing

Everyone knows that feeling. You wake up around three hours after your alarm has given up trying to wrestle you out of bed. Your hair’s a mess and your face is caked with make up from the night before. This is truly alarming as you don’t usually, or ever, wear make up to nightclubs. Having spent the night in your clothes has left that brand new suit you just got back from the tailor yesterday covered in cat hair and down-comforter lint. It’s ruined. Rising from the bed (is it even yours?) you stub your toe on an empty RU-21 box and mumble an obscenity. You should not have gotten so drunk last night.

In theory, every night has the potential to cause the above morning after. Standard hangover victims ought to consider themselves lucky, as they’ve most likely narrowly avoided the truly disastrous aftermaths that these “holidays” can cause. See the full post »

Keep Drinking and You’ll Look Like This


Truffle Shuffle
The number one killer of Americans today is heart disease from obesity. So, when a mutineer talks about being fat it’s not a laughing matter… Okay, maybe the “truffle shuffle” is a laughing matter, but Jeff Cohen’s childhood obesity is merely a rare exception. Suffice it to say that us Californians undoubtedly place a heavy emphasis on staying light. See the full post »

Pinot Camp Random Diary Excerpts


Pinot Camp

Pinot Camp, one of the most exclusive wine events in the world. Available only to the utmost professionals in the industry. It is an annual event for Sommeliers and other wine service professionals held in Willamette Valley to educate about the wines of Oregon. It is important to note that this is fundamentally an educational event, and is brilliantly organized to this end, with transportation provided throughout the event to prevent any drinking and driving. Furthermore, any drinking beyond the professional call of duty is not encouraged by the organizers and is entirely a reflection on this writer. See the full post »

The Mutineer Receiving His Own Information


Scott Paul

Somewhere between Playboy and Donnie Darko lies Scott Paul Wines. The latest reincarnation of the rabbit as a marketing tool has its origins on the wall of the sleek Scott Paul Wines tasting room in rustic downtown Carlton, OR. A large painting of a rabbit welcomes you on the far wall as you enter the room, and in a way it welcomed owner Scott Wright into the world of winemaking. See the full post »

Napa Wine Auction


Napa Valley

My associate Douglas and I are up for the big Napa Valley Wine Auction, more specifically the barrel auction portion of the event. If you haven’t been, it is a wild orgy of Napa wineries that come together at the Trinchero winery to auction off their wines for worthy causes. An endless sea of barrels fills the enormous warehouse space that holds the barrel auction, while white wines and food from local chefs are served outside. See the full post »
