About me

About me

I believe that the enjoyment of wine is not only the juice in the bottle, but also the impact that has to do with the setting, the company you are with, your mood and even the glass you drink out of…

Welcome to my Wine Review site!

For the past 13 years, I have been reviewing wines. This website will be able to allow readers to search for a specific wine, or by category, and look at a review and a rating.

I always try to put down as much information as I can, so the reader is able to assess if they would like the wine before even trying it.

Enjoy

  1. Hi, I’m happy to have found your site; because you liked my blog post, it led me to yours. I’ve browsed a little and it looks good. But what might be a good addition would be the price you paid when you got it– would give viewers like us an idea of whether it’s in our price range or not.
    Thanks, and happy wine tasting!

  2. I like your blog but would like to know about you. From your taste analysis you seem knowledgeable. How about some background on you?
    Thanks

  3. I believe you are passionate about wines (I don’t know your name), just Odedi, and you would do yourself a huge favor to post a bio…I am sure it is interesting.
    My blog is about the passion of winemakers on their own. For that reason, I avoid the big wineries, even though many make quality wines, because when you are selling 10,000 or even 20,000 cases you need promotion.
    You are doing that with your blog…please, please, post a bio.
    Thanks,
    TB

    1. Love the photos Luce, It’s always lovely to get photos from the real, resneditial side of Paris. This is what I like to do whenever I am back in HK. I’m a bit in love with that Me and Zena ring, I was so tempted to buy it too!

    1. Excuse my interjection as another commenter and not the host. Israel has produced top, award-winning wines; and yes, they are innovative, as well as interesting. Perhaps, Odedi, an entire subset on Israeli wines would be a great addition to your site. You could also add other regional and/or wines by continent, if you’d like. I like very few wines, but I enjoy the reviews!

  4. Ode,,,you were off on the right foot, but a lack of a profile…even an anonymous one that tells something about your experience would help. I have repeatedly asked for that. Then there is the focus on Israeli wines which are not available in all places…feature them, yes, but in proportion to the other countries wines out there.
    You may not care but I am unsubscribing from your blog…and due to a total lack of communication.
    Good luck in your work…whatever it is…

    1. Traderbill — As you may or may not know blogging is a labor of love that hopefully imparts knowledge in others. I for one have learned a lot about Israeli wine that I would never have without Odedi’s reviews. If you unsubscribe, another will fill your spot and you will have lost a font of good information.

  5. This is great! I have been in need of a guide to Israeli wines, because I have had some superb ones and need to know where to look for the good producers, and especially the smaller growers who are innovating.

  6. Your site is friendly and easy to navigate. I’m so glad you found me so I could find you and utilize your site when choosing wines. I have one suggestion: Can you tell us the region the wines are from? I was pursuing the French category and wanted to know where exactly the wine is made. Have you tried wines from the Languedoc in France? They are some of the best reds I have ever tasted. When I visited there a few years ago, they said it was the largest wine producing region in France but is a best kept secret because most of their wine stays in Europe.
    Thanks again for the informative website!
    Ciao! Mary

  7. hiya, I don’t drink wine, never have (unless you count a disastrous encounter with cask wine in my youth) but would like to try getting into it when I am allowed to drink again. What would you recommend for a wine beginner? Not bitter!

  8. Thanks for finding my sight because now I’ve found you! I’m not a great connoisseur of wine, but I generally know what I like when I taste it. Years ago, my ex and a friend started a wine import company. It was our job to taste cases and cases of wine, all from Australia since it was up and coming but relatively unknown here in the States. All the Aussie vineyards were desirous of us caring their product. At first we drank the wine we sampled, but that meant we’d be a mess at days end. So then we did it the professional way with buckets to spit in and the rinse and a bite of cracker. We got creative with cheeses as well. It was pretty funny because we knew absolutely nothing about wine. We did learn though. I recall one being so bad. It looked like piss and unfortunately tasted as bad, if not worse. It was horrid. We wondered if it was some Aussie’s cruel joke on the Yanks’. Our company eventually folded when our friend finally passed the bar exam and decided to become a lawyer instead. My husband then wasn’t ambitious enough to go it alone.

    I just found you on Vivino, I would love if you could follow me on that as well, look for Arnaud Bonnard in New Zealand. Cheers!

  10. The masses have spoken — award-winning Israeli wines are grabbing the headlines and curiosity of people everywhere, including myself. I’d love to hear more about them!

  11. You are most welcome. It is one thing to unsubscribe to a blog because it doesn’t interest you, it is entirely another to be narcissistic about it. I enjoy your blog and learn from it and won’t sit quietly watching you take abuse for what you review, the way you present it or how chatty you may or may not be. Keep them coming.

  15. Hi, I didn’t read through all the comments and replies –so I hope you haven’t already answered these questions:
    How did you come to be interested in wine? Do you have a formal background? Where are you from and currently located?

        1. Sure it is possible to get the health benefits of wine, without drinking it. But it is a secret. I am willing to share the secret with you, once you tell me how do I get the health benefits of working out, without working out. πŸ˜ƒ

  16. Hi, thank you for liking my blog posts. I was going through your blog and I LOVE it. I love wine and my appreciation for tea partly grew because of my love for wine. As you can see, wine and tea share similar tasting notes. I want to write to you. Please share your email address.

  17. As my foray into South African wines begins and my shyness with South American wines eases off, your site will certainly become a resource for me. I look forward to your posts and thank you for paying a visit to my blog, too! Stop by again soon. I look forward to getting to know you and reading your posts. EvΓ­va!

  18. Thanks for liking a post on The Expositrix!
    I truly miss wine (can no longer have it, sigh), and all the surroundings and fellowship that go along with it. I’ll have to enjoy the experience vicariously via your reviews!
