Score a grand cellar at

Sorry I’ve been missing in action. I got married, went on a honeymoon then came back to an office piled with work and wine. I’m currently typing away on a column about wine merchant Kermit Lynch’s 37th anniversary, which he’s at least partly commemorating with “Man’s Temptation” (Dualtone), an album of bluesy folk (yes, he sings – very well).

But you’ll have to wait and read that column on Oct. 7. For now, I’ve got to tell you auction-bound winos about a spotlight feature on, the largest online auction space for fine and rare wines. They’ve got a cellar from one of Wine Spectator magazine’s Grand Award winning restaurants. Yes, it’s a real restaurant. Try to forget the fake restaurant  Spectator awarded last year. This restaurant is legit, and so is the wine list.

If you’ve got the bones, check it out. The list features 2000 Petrus, 2003 Romanee-Conti, 1967 Chateau d’Yquem, and 1990 Margaux.
