Making Discoveries, Seeking Advice

James Laube
Issue: February 28, 2010

Much of the time, senior editor James Laube knows what he wants. So he does most of his wine shopping online these days, or buys direct from wineries.

But sometimes he wants to explore. He's looking for exciting wines that offer good value. He avoids the most popular wines, which are not always the best value, and mostly stays clear of wines from his California beat because he sees so many in the tasting room. He's more eager to discover a wine from elsewhere. In today's wine world he encounters so many choices when he's in a wineshop or restaurant that he always seeks advice.

For the full article, check out the new issue of Wine Spectator, on newsstands February 2, 2010.
