Fighting wine counterfeiters, the perception that Pinot makes, the Riesling revolution in New York’s Finger Lakes, and who drinks more wine than we do? [level-members]

First it was Fido. Now we’re microchipping vino. Wine Searcher gives us a look at some high-tech counter-counterfeiting technology.

Pinot and Perception – Forbes tell us how, “Pinot Noir From Around The World Is Changing Wine-Drinking Perceptions.”

I must admit, I’ve never heard the Finger Lakes region of New York referred to as “the FLX,” so perhaps that’s why I didn’t know there was a Riesling revolution underway.

Is Indiana the next Napa Valley? The Louisville Courier-Journal thinks so. Six official wine trails and 87 wineries in the state lend some creedence to their claims.
