We live in an area where there are a lot of antique stores. Something about wine tasting and buying antiques go together in some people's minds. Maybe the wine helps people pay way too much money for something way too old.

We went to Lafayette today to check out a store. The store occupies the entirety of an old school building. The building is gorgeous and is just filled to the brim with things to look at. The school building seems like a place that I would have wanted to go to school.

The kids and my friend Julie and I all went and had a blast looking at all the wonderful things. It was such a lovely way to spend the day, and it was nice that neither of us ended up buying one single thing. We were both just looking. I DID, however, find a beautiful workable, perfect-for-us dining room table that I wouldn't mind adopting. Some day, I will get a table just like it, some day!

There is a slide out the side of the school building that I imagine was used as a fire escape. Daphne thought that it was just amazing!

The main building is part of a compound of sorts, and the owner lives on-site. This is a huge room that's sort of subdivided into a display space for his collection of old wine-making tools and implements. The other side of this room is a 60-foot long stretch (possibly longer; by this time I'd tasted a lot of wine), complete with a giant dining table and two 20-foot-long couches. It's also equipped with a huge parrilla -- grill. The walls are lined with the owners collection of ponchos -- some antique and very valuable. What I wouldn't give to come back to a dinner there.

How to Taste: A Guide to Enjoying Wine

What better way to learn about wine than to taste it?
Hailed by Jerry Shriver in USA Today as "the woman who makes the wine world gulp when she speaks," Jancis Robinson created in How to Taste a classic for connoisseurs of all levels and the first introduction of its kind to focus on practical tasting exercises. Now fully revised and updated, Robinson's renowned guide proves once again that learning about wine can be just as engaging as drinking it.
Written in Robinson's trademark accessible style, the new How to Taste features thoroughly updated vintages and producers as well as up-and-coming wine regions and styles. Incorporating wines that are both easily obtainable and reasonably priced, Robinson's lessons are separated into complementary portions of theory and practice to help you both learn and taste your way to wine expertise.
One of the world's best-loved authorities on wine, Robinson explains first how to get the most out of the flavor of your wine and food, and then about specific grapes and the wines themselves. By the time you finish the book, you will have learned how to recognize the most popular grape varieties from Chardonnay and Riesling to Pinot Noir and Cabernet Sauvignon, and why a good sparkling wine is always better than cheap champagne. You will discover how to judge sweetness, acidity, and fruitiness as well as the difference between the length and the weight of a wine. You will also be given practical advice for dealing with wine in the real world: how to choose from a wine list, organize your own wine tastings, and pair wines with specific foods.
From the armchair to the wine shop and back to the table, How to Taste will transform anyone on any level into a confident connoisseur who can leave faltering sips behind and have fun along the way.

Whether Montessori or Merlot, kindergarten or Cabernet, the importance of a good instructor during the formative years is crucial. That's why newcomers to the world of wine could do a lot worse than having a corkscrew in one hand and a copy of Jancis Robinson's How to Taste in the other. A revision of 1983's Masterglass and published in the U.K. under the superior title Jancis Robinson's Wine-Tasting Workbook, How to Taste is a primer by a certified Master of Wine and star of the PBS series Jancis Robinson's Wine Course. From acidity to Australian Shiraz, oak to Oregon Pinot, Robinson delivers chapters of information and theory, intermingled with shaded "Practice" exercises, presented in a style as off-dry as one of the author's beloved Rieslings (the tannin in a lesser vintage Barolo is "like sucking on a matchstick"). Sometimes tuition at Jancis U. runs high: the lesson on sugar/acid balance culminates with expensive Sauterne "Practice." And even if Robinson risks, by dropping words like "charred" and "umami" early in the book, sending novices back to tear open a fresh box of Franzia, vinous virgins are encouraged to stick with it. By the time they get to the glossary at book's end, they'll be identifying wines at blind tastings with professional accuracy--which, Robinson encouragingly reveals, and she ought to know, is about 50 percent. --Tony Mason
