I can’t find the wines that you are suggesting. Where should I Look?

WGWW is based in Chicago and we are blessed with a large number of competitive wine and spirits outlets and tasting opportunities. I try to make my selections as broad as possible but I can’t guarantee you’ll find the bottle in your market (city).

Try a couple of things: when you are at your local wine shop, identify a wine manager and ask if they can help you locate the bottle or something close to it. My wine matching suggestions are simply guides as in many cases the Cabernet he/she suggests may even be better than the one I suggested and hey maybe I can’t get your bottle in my market.

Second, go to the winery website that is listed with the bottle information and search around in the headings areas, they often list distributors for their products. If you find a distributor in your area offer that information to your wine shop and see if they’ll get it for you.

I have a recipe that I’d like to match a wine with will you do it for me?

Well yes and no. If you send me the entire recipe at Woodywine@aol.com I’ll do my best to get an answer to you in a reasonable amount of time but I probably will take a few days to do it. If I feel the recipe would appeal to the other WGWW members, I might even incorporate it into a monthly menu.

I’m having trouble with a recipe that I’m making, can I contact you for more help?

Assuming you’re not writing as you cook, I’ll do what I can to help out but reference the similar question above, it probably won’t be in real time.
