Basic Juice Turns 2

2bday Two years ago today I started this little popsicle wine stand.  How about a few numbers?

1,485 - number of comments
1,096 -
number of posts
114 - wine-friendly recipes
79 - pet photos
55 -
Extraordinarily creative (I put the "um" in humble)  full-length wine articles
13 - posts by guest authors
10 -
number of times the word "zing" used as an adjective
4 - number of Greek wines reviewed
3 - wine raps (How you like me now?, WR2: Electric Boogaloo, Asti is dope!)
2 - pieces on bitters (Amaretto, Nostrum Remedium)
1 - use of the word "manure" in a positive way (you've got a "ma" and a "newer" - it's really quite a nice word)

I'm asking my fellow bloggers and readers to help me celebrate today.  What wine would you recommend for a 2-year blogiversary?

Basic Juice, another of my favorite wine blogs, turns two years old today and blogger Beau Jarvis has asked for wine matching suggestions. Since the blog is from the 2004 vintage, thats the vintage Id choose to celebrate with. And since i... [Read More]



Happy birthday, Beau! Obviously if you're going to celebrate, the wine should have a "two" theme, but recommending Two Buck Chuck seems a bit anticlimactic so I'd suggest Angels Share Shiraz which is made by Two Hands Winery...that way you can hear applause while you toast the milestone. Cheers!!


Congrats from the UK. A celebration? Well it has to be bubbles and for that a bottle of Louis Roederer.


Welcome among the 2 years +, Beau !
Your blog has this unique touch of humor plus plenty of unexpected gifts (I loved the guitar solo for july 4th...). Also,I know now where to go when I want to deepen my knowledge of austrian wines !

What wine for the blogiversary ?

A sparlking (c'est la fête!) rosé (c'est l'été !) like, say,... a Brut Sensation Rosé 2004 of Rousseau Frères, or a "Go et Alter" 2004 sparkling Rosé Gamay from Robinot (I did not look far, they are my two last visits!).
Keep the good job!


Beau...happy bloganniversary! You've got a lot of loyal readers out here who hope you keep it going for another two at least ;)

Given your love of "funk" in a while...I say you pick the funkiest of the funkadelic out of your cellar and get funked up tonight.

I hope to someday have my blog to the point that comments outweigh the posts, that's the sign of a good blog.

I'll recommend another bubbly-- a tart, light cava made in Tarragona
from 100% Parellada grapes by Emmanuel Kemiji
(makes big Pinots under th Miura label)
oh, name is d'Abbatis!
happy seconds!


Happy B-day to BasicJuice! Always enjoy your posts though your short, to-the-point support for Cam in the Cam v. Miller law case is my favorite.

Vivi's Wine Journal is only 2 weeks behind, though admittedly not nearly as prolific based on those stats!

As for wine...something light, fun, and cool to beat the heat. Chenin maybe? Andrew's suggestion of a bubbly is a good idea too!


Happy 2 years!

Congratulations on the birthday of the site.

The only sensible way to celebrate momentous occasions such as this is Krug!


thanks all for the wishes.
And Cam, I like your style. Perhaps the Missus will allow me to pop the '89 Krug...

Kevin Erskine

Congratulations! Here's to many more.

Wait--you're only two?! Are you old enough to drink?
How about a "second" wine from a leading Bordeaux house? Oh wait, those are still expensive and would take a lot of measly ad-click revnue...How about a 2004 bourgogne rouge? Not too pricey, good in the summer and from your "birth" year.
