About Wine Ponder

Welcome to Wine Ponder!

Wine Ponder is an escapade started in the late 2012 by Laurent Jouvin. Laurent was quickly chaperoned by his good friend Steve Jacobson. They both have a deep passion for wine. They discover wine, taste wine, pair wine… Well, they just about enjoy every aspect of wine, including the social experience. Wine is a constant journey, with many destinations that must be shared, and that’s how Wine Ponder came to be.

Wine Ponder is a personable wine blog enjoyed by people around the world. It is a global epicurean escape documented by two wine enthusiasts, with a particular appeal to food and wine. Laurent & Steve are on a fun mission to find the most exciting places, new wine experiences, emerging trends and sensations. If anyone is going to have a passion, wine is a pretty good one. It often means traveling to exquisite places, meet very intereting people, talk to master sommeliers, hear winemaking stories from winemakers, take long walks across vineyards and estates, and of course drinking amazing wines and making new friends.

Wine expert and author Paul Lukacks (Inventing Wine) once said “Nothing represents the idea of convivial sharing so clearly as wine.” We couldn’t agree more. Wine has been around for thousands of years. It is a celebration of life and we love to celebrate on a daily basis.

Getting started drinking wine has never been easier or more fun. Check in periodically, sign up to our newsletter and take part in our wine endeavor.

  1. Hello Wine Ponder!

    I happen to just stumble on your website looking for extra large empty wine champagne or regular wine bottle. I need just one for my celebration party for people to sign on to celebrate me beating cancer! I had stage 2 Hodgkin’s Lymphoma and it was a very large mass. Now I want to celebrate and I am doing a wine themed party with some different wines to taste and the empty wine bottle for my guest to sign would be a great piece for me to take home.

    Where can I get one for free or where can I purchase? Home good store? Any website suggestion? Any wineries that may give or sell them?

    1. Hi Courtney,

      First of all, congratulations for beating cancer and all my best wishes for the wonderful life that lays in front of you.

      For your party, I think your best bet will be to contact a winery and see if they would sell you or give you a large bottle of wine. You could go in a store and get a large bottle of wine but quite frankly, they are hard to find and a bit impersonal … not to mention the fact that they can be very expensive. If I were you, I would contact a winery and tell them your story. I bet there’s more than one winery that would do something nice for you. There are thousands of wineries in the states. Make a search online and pick one based on your location and your wine taste.

      I hope this helps. Best of luck, Courtney!
