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.
