About the guy holding the wine case

Rémy Charest has been writing about wine and food for over ten years, now, and loves just about everything about all that tasty stuff. New flavours and evolutions in the wine world always seem to pop up and generate more questions and curiosity on his part. After three years as an editor at Le Soleil, Quebec City’s main daily newspaper, he has gone back to freelancing – which helped him find time to try his hand at winemaking at Prince Edward County’s Closson Chase vineyard.

Being rather bilingual, he also publishes a French-language blog on wine, À chacun sa bouteille, which isn’t just a translation of The Wine Case.

Please note that this blog has now been moved to winecase.ca.

  1. I am Max morales from Open Wine Consortium and I was wondering if we could publish some of your former columns or articles in http://www.andeswines.com considering we have great contacts in Canada.

    We can translate into spanish your article too and add it to our newsletter.

    We have a newsletter that reaches several wineries in canada and wine gate keepers.

    Please, let me know if you are interested.


  2. Hi, this is Dondon of mustlovewine.com a social network where wine lovers like you meet. I would like to ask if you are interested in a link exchange.

    Pls. shoot me an email if you are interested.

    Thanks and hope to hear from you.

  3. Too bad we didn’t meet at the event Remy, particularly after that exchange over the mutineer (from the expected protocol of Joel’s Network). Next time.

  4. Hello, I stumbled across your wonderful posts about Matassa. Was just wondering, if you know, could you kindly tell me the significance of the name “Matassa”, what it means, et al?


    • The name Matassa is the name of the first vineyard that Tom Lubbe acquired when he started his winery: Clos Matassa. As to the exact meaning of the name Matassa, it’s a bit lost in time, like many of the place namess in such regions.

  5. Remy,

    Rob Barlow,

    Recently Martha Clara Vineyards’ winemaker, Juan Eduardo Micieli-Martinez, has begun making a video series known as the Juan-Maker.

    In the series the Juan-Maker discusses his wines, usually highlighting a different wine each episode, in a very non-traditional, fun kind of way. You’ll see when you watch it. Along with the wines, the Juan-Maker will also be highlighting different aspects of Martha Clara Vineyards, along with the winemaking process itself.

    Hopefully you enjoy the videos, there are many more to come, and you can view them at our youtube channel: http://www.youtube.com/juanmaker

    • I’ll certainly take a look at the video. I enjoyed the gewurtztraminer from Martha Clara I brought back home to Quebec after Tastecamp. Very classic, nicely aromatic, fun to drink.
