The next wine wine school subject from Asimov in the New York Times is Muscadet. "Yet, as has happened all around the wine-producing world, a small group of focused, quality-conscious growers and producers has fought the clichés of Muscadet by making exceptional, multidimensional wines, fascinating on many levels."

Winesearcher investigates the Parker barrel. "Still, rumors swirl and eddy. What about the "Parker barrel", a specially prepared, forward and fruity concoction that some châteaux will prepare for the Maryland critic (it'll be the Martin barrel this year, but that's another story altogether)? Depending on who you ask, it's either a myth or it's perfectly natural."

Mike Dunne of the Sacramento Bee on the 11th annual Symposium for Professional Wine Writers, which took place in February in Napa Valley. "In recent years, in reading the manuscripts, I’ve been struck by the rising number of aspiring wine writers coming from fields other than newspaper sports departments, which seem to have produced a disproportionate number of the practitioners of the craft, at least in the U.S. Today’s aspiring wine writers often have science, travel and food writing as a grounding. Some are bloggers."
