JJ Buckley's Pressroom 

  • Until fairly recently, Malbec had had a tough career. For most of its life, it was primarily known as a “Bordeaux variety,” and not one of the prominent ones. It got a new lease on life in Argentina and, now, is seeing a renaissance in Cahors....

  • Syrah and Petite Sirah are so similar in spelling and pronunciation that you might expect them to be similar wines. This confusion might grow when you see wines labeled Shiraz, which has a similar sound as well. What is the difference between Shiraz, Syrah and Petite Sirah? Are they the same wine and grape variety, just with different names? Not exactly....

  • Of all the decisions made for a wine though, when to harvest is arguably the most significant choice. It affects yield, flavors and aromas, texture, acidity, potential alcohol, balance, approachability, and aging potential. One or two days can make a huge difference. And waiting too long can result in substantial losses if the weather turns bad. How do they choose the date?...

Been purchasing wine through JJ for a few years now...Kevin Johnson has been doing an outstanding job taking care of me.
