The Whistler Tree

This is the Whistler Tree, the largest and oldest cork oak tree still commercially producing wine bottle corks. Now, before you write this blog off because trees are dumb and boring, consider this: In the harvest before last, this one tree yielded enough cork to make over 100,000 wine corks!

Mutineer on Tour – Saginaw Vineyards


Saginaw Vineyards

Today I discovered something about the Willamette Valley…it’s friggin’ big! I left the Willamette Valley today to begin my pilgrimage to the Rogue Valley of Southern Oregon, and after driving south for 3 hours, I saw a billboard proclaiming wine and music at a winery off the next exit. Ignoring the pleas of my GPS system, I headed towards the mystery winery. See the full post »

Mutineer on Tour – Eyrie Vineyards


Eyrie Vineyards

There are a lot of exceptional Pinot Noir wines coming from the Willamette Valley, and I’ve been fortunate enough to try a great deal of them, some of which I’ve ranted about on this blog. That said, Eyrie Vineyards, in my humble opinion, is the crown jewel of the Willamette Valley. These wines are RIDICULOUS! I’d go into more detail here, but if I get going I’ll never stop, so look for a piece on Eyrie in the upcoming issue of Mutineer Magazine, and in the meantime, hunt down a bottle of Eyrie for yourself…you’ll be glad you did.

The fine people at Freixenet know how to market a product. It’s simple, you drink a bunch of Freixenet Cava and then you have rock star sex on a big, psychedelic bottle of Freixenet while roses rain from the sky!

Freixenet is the largest Cava house in Spain. What is Cava? Cava is a sparkling wine (think Champagne) that can only be produced in Spain using the same method used to produce Champagne. Most Cava comes from the Spanish region of Penedes near Barcelona. See the full post »

In the Heat of the Day


Unibroue Ephemere
It’s hot and a little sticky, you’ve just finished washing the car and you come inside for a refreshing drink. All you have in the fridge is cola and an lmperial Porter. Don’t get me wrong I love porters, but on a hot summer day its not my choice for a thirst quenching beverage. See the full post »
