hey...what's wrong with screw cap? You won't be worrying about TCA that way right? maybe I'm just blinded because a fair number of local wineries in MI use screw tops (and MI is not exactly known for stellar wine)... but PlumpJack used screw caps on some reserve cab before, so it can't be all too terrible right?
Sorry...back to the adv riding!! when you're feeling well enough that is.

Exactly right! Can't ride around the world and miss Africa. Besides, we'll all be cheering you on.....

I knew there were other knowledgeable wine geeks riding along with me.
Every time I pop a corked cork on a wine I had been saving for years, I wish for more screwcaps.
Like the 1999 Leoville Barton I had a couple of years ago. But I mentioned it to them at the winery last month and they said they would mail me a replacement........I just dont have an address to send it to right now

Just send it to my address... I'll mail the empty bottle to you when you get settled.
I'm waiting for you to hit chianti... I've always had a taste for sangiovese for some reason, even on it's own. See if you can slide a 2006 Fontodi Flaccianello (sp?) in the side boxes of the bmw ;)

Wine tasting stop in The Netherlands !!

Great story of your adventure, just found it !!
We (me and my wife) just finished our 1 year Americas trip from Alaska to Ushuaia on 2 GSA's and now back home again in The Netherlands.
Knowing that you are now somewhere in the North of France and heading our way be sure that you are most welcome to stay at our place, we live in the South center part of the Netherlands close to Zaltbommel.
By the way . . . . . . still have around 600 bottles of wine in my cellar and happy to taste a lot of them together with you.

Let us know when interested and w'll give you our address !!

I see a lot of empty beer bottles one day and a lot of empty wine bottles the next in my future.
And I have not been "training" either for the past week and maybe lost 5 kilos too.
But might make for entertaining photos
