    When you drink while smoking, what do you usually drink? I can tell that 70% of the time i drink red wine, 20% rhum and 10% scotch. What about you?

    I’ve been drinking more Spanish and Italian wines lately, with those tending to the less complex. I know it’s more a summer thing – perhaps I am chasing away winter with summer wines. Summer drinks and food too. Lager instead of stout. Pico de Gallo or Ceviche for dinner. Gin and Tonic...

    Castello Banfi (Castello Banfi Home) is located southwest of Montepulciano, Italy which for those of you who have not been blessed with time in Italy might better recognize as being basically due south of Florence in northern Italy. I always have enjoyed collecting and cellaring Italian wines...

    Can a wine cooler like mine hold Rh for a while after you remove the KL from the unit? I noticed when I removed 2 of the small bags nothing changed.... and a week ago the Rh bumped up to about 67% so I took another bag out (only one left) and it was still at 66% ... so I took the last bag out...

    After picking up some Spanish Cedar tomorrow and FINALLY getting my 12 bottle wine fridge set up, I'll be plugging the thing in and stashing away some cigars.

    I'm looking to either convert old furniture or a wine fridge to a humidor. A very cheap option, it seems, is a non working (or partially broken) wine fridge/vinotemp. I live in San Diego where humidity is low. Temps can get not but rarely excessively so. Would I ever really need to run a wine...

    After outgrowing all my Tupperware and small coolers, I've decided that it is time to invest in a winodor. My question is what size wine coolers are most people going with? Initially I started looking at some 12-16 bottle ones a few months back but recently I've been thinking that a 28, 32, or...

    I am looking to purchase a Newair 28 bottle wine cooler and want to know do I have to plug the condensation drain hole and install fans for the cooler to work properly as a wineador? Reason I ask is ultimately I probably will do those things right away and as of right now I have a small 8...
