Tasting sized pours

Buyers of cellars: BusinessWeek reviews home wine cellars. Cut straight to the photos.

Buyers and buyers: “Bidders shattered last year’s $12.2-million, single-day record when they hit lot No. 49, with 23 lots still to go.” Naples Winter Wine Festival brings in $16.5 million for charity through the sale of wine–and a Rolls Royce and trips on private jets [Naples News]

Buying more: Americans buy 300 million cases of wine in 2006, a new record. [Sonoma PD]

Sancerre, food pair [Mariani–Bloomberg]

The half-bottle may not be full enough: Landmarc, the very wine-friendly restaurant in Tribeca that has an extensive list of half bottles, moves uptown and upscale to the TimeWarner Center–but are they in over their heads? [NYM]

Pitch it or pour it? Jerald O’Kennard of the Beverage Testing Institute peers into the liquor cabinets of the Trib staff. Some of it is not pretty. [Chicago Tribune, thanks U:TB]

On a roll: Have you ever had a California roll? Or teriyaki chicken? You can now report it to Japanese sushi “police” who are on the prowl, seeking out fraud maki–outside of Japan! [Financial Times]

Some like it hot–spicy and circular: “The United Nations food and health agencies are to lay down international standards for how the poppadum can be manufactured.” [TimesOnline]

The next edition of Wine Blogging Wednesday will focus on New World syrah. Taste, then blog it on Feb 7! [WineCast]

Many sales are happening now–check your local wine shop and stock up!
