Ask The Advisor
Have a wine related question? "Ask the Advisor" is our new feature where you can have your burning wine questions answered. We plan to tackle a broad range of subjects from food and wine pairing to the pros and cons of wild yeast fermentation. No question is too simple (we like those because they are easier to answer) and if you have a tough one we can't answer it we will either punt, call in for industry reinforcements or go back to Fresno State.
