Grich Hills, Napa Valley::
New Releases by Grgich Hills are always very exciting. One wonders how this winery manages to surpass itself year after year; thirty years after the legendary Miljenko “Mike” Grgich’s “coup” at the celebrated “Paris Tasting” of 1976.
Terlato Wines :
This is the first time the Terlato family produces wines with their name on the labels. Terlato Vineyards 2004 Pinot Grigio Russian River Valley, Terlato Vineyards 2003 Syrah Dry Creek Valley and Terlato Vineyards 2003 Angels’ Peak Napa Valley Bordeaux blend.
Wines of North Fork, Long Island::
Compared to other wine regions, Long Island is relatively new and the wines are not widely distributed in South Florida, but with the new laws enabling interstate wine sales, we can expect to see more of them.
St. Supéry, California Lushness with French-Style Subtlety:
Rich, complex, and approachable Napa Valley wines are more in tune with Bordeaux wines than with their California counterparts. Three exceptional whites have just been released.
Great wines under $15:
To our delight sometimes price bears no relation to quality: from Australia to Argentina we’ll find that whether with screw-caps (like the Australians) or with the traditional cork, these are delicious wines that will give you many pleasurable meals.

Some Ask if the Disney Magic Is Slipping As Disney marks the 50th birthday of its first theme park - Disneyland in California - with a companywide 18-month celebration that began in May, it is facing great scrutiny, particularly when it comes to Walt Disney World - a 30,000-plus-acre complex in Florida that comprises four theme parks and more than 20 resorts and that attracted 40.5 million visitors in 2004, according to the trade journal Amusement Business. "What kind of a Mickey Mouse operation is this?" To hear some guests tell stories of inept service at Disney World theme parks and resorts is to realize the Mouse may no longer be as mighty.
Around what is now Milano, during the Middle Ages, -- a time when people were a lot more dynamic than we give them credit for, Italians figured out how to make a cheese that would last longer than the soft milk products they had: Large cheese wheels that slowly aged passed from being delicately flavored, soft, and pale white, to delightfully sharp, firm but grainy, and gold. They called it Grana, because of its grainy texture, and the name stuck.
