W. Blake Gray looks at all the closeout sites (Wines Til Sold Out, Wine Woot, etc.) selling “$100 wines for $35.” His conclusion would make an econ101 professor smile: “If that was really a $100 wine, wouldn’t it have sold for $100?”

When people think about Colorado wine country, they’re probably thinking about the western slopes of the Rocky Mountains. As Kyle Schlachter explains in Palate Press, though, “almost half of the state’s wineries are actually located on the Front Range, in and around Denver.”

Dr. Vino blogs about the difficulty of making money as a wine blogger. The post generates some pretty good comments.

Steve Heimoff tastes through 20 straight vintages of Williams Selyem’s Allen Vineyard Pinot Noir. I’m envious. And salivating.

Wine Spectator provides more details on the world’s oldest-known winery.
