I am a big fan of Roberto Rogness’ selections at The Wine Expo in Santa Monica. Thank god I don’t live near his store because I would be spending far more on wine than I do now. Roberto is never afraid to give his opinion and he shares his thoughts on the “Rants” page of The Wine Expo website, which you can find at this link.
If you’re not on The Wine Expo’s mailing list do so as soon as possible as they offer the most exciting selection of Italian and grower Champagnes that you never heard of - and that’s a very good thing. It’s a good thing because Roberto is ferreting out some of the most interesting, authentic wines you’ll ever taste, and to make things even better, they’re often exceptional values as well.
