California is known for the grape, but great wine in the west extends all the way from San Diego to Washington State. Yamhill County, OR has its share of fabulous wine.

When grape picker, Sam Knox, dies at the vine; Madigan offers $1 million to his daughter ...in exchange for signing a convoluted non-disclosure agreement.

Nate stays at the helm, leading a quest to devalue a 200+ year old bottle of wine and save a winery. Written by LA-Lawyer

The ultra-lite CO2
17 September 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

There are so many mistakes in this episode I hardly know where to begin.

The wine that is supposed to be 300 years old is in a bottle that is clearly recent. The shape is approximately right but - well google for oldest Lafite and you'll see what an old bottle really looks like - it's much cruder with thicker glass than a modern one owing to the successive improvements in glass-making over the centuries.

At one point the women are supposed to actually be drinking this wine but it is never opened.

For me the silliest though is that the windows are opened at the top of the building to let out the CO2. But surely everyone knows that CO2 is heavier than air so this would have no effect. The ventilation needs to be from underneath.
