Every Wednesday I post my recommendations of the best of last week’s postings concerning wine, whether blogs or news. I list them in the order I read them, so you shouldn’t infer anything about the order in which I list these posts.

Microsatellite DNA Analysis, Shaping Genetic Understanding of Grapes
An excellent introduction of the use of DNA analysis for typing grape varieties.
Sherry Pairings and Science
A quick introduction to Sherry.
This post is more interesting for Goode’s thoughts about wine tasting than the particular results of this New Jersey vs. France tasting.
