Stag's Leap[edit]

Thanks for the fix on the image, thought I had checked everything but obviously not! Camw (talk) 04:30, 31 January 2011 (UTC)

No sweat, good thing nothing had to be recalled from the publisher. ;^) deMURGH talk 10:17, 31 January 2011 (UTC)

Workbench French wine articles[edit]

Hey Murgh! I was browsing your work bench and you have quite an impressive collection of start up articles that you've been working on over the years. While I know you have high standards and though they may not be 100% ready, several of them are certainly in good enough shape to be featured in main space. To go with the WP:WID2011 theme, I was wondering if you would be willing to move some of the "closer to ready" articles to main space. While I've been twiddling around with obscure French grape stubs, I would certainly be willing to help out with polishing them up further and getting some DYKs. A few of the articles, in particular, I had in mind was User:Murgh/Domaine Leroy, User:Murgh/Domaine du Vieux Télégraphe and User:Murgh/Margaux AOC. AgneCheese/Wine 04:33, 16 February 2011 (UTC)

Hi there. Standards do vary with busy/leisurely periods, and while I do have some time today, I'll be not so WP active for another two weeks or so as I go on a little vacation (going through Swartland-Paarl-Franschhoek-Stellenbosch :) so I can chip a little away at Leroy and maybe Vieux Télégraphe for now, but won't have time for all that much, so feel totally free to build on Margaux AOC. deMURGH talk 11:33, 16 February 2011 (UTC)
Well I don't feel as comfortable editing in another editor's userpage which is one of the reasons why I suggested maybe moving them over to mainspace. But if your not keen on that idea, no worries. :) Best wishes on your trip, sounds very exciting. Also good opportunity for some wine pictures. Though harvest is likely over by now, maybe you can snatch a pic of the elusive Pinotage. ;) AgneCheese/Wine 02:31, 17 February 2011 (UTC)

Roger Scruton[edit]

Hi Murgh, I've posted an RfC at Talk:Roger Scruton—see here—to ask whether the neutrality tag should remain on the article. There are a number of issues in dispute; if you could comment even on just one of them, or your overall impression of the article's balance, that would be very helpful. I'm leaving this note because you've edited the article or talk page, but if you have no interest in commenting, please feel free to ignore the request.

Aldo Conterno[edit]

Hi Murgh, with news that Aldo passed away yesterday, I was thinking it would be a good time to introduce an article on the producer. I noticed you have a good draft in your user space, would you mind if I add some information, clean it up a bit and introduce it to mainspace please? If you wanted to help that would be great as well! Camw (talk) 11:51, 31 May 2012 (UTC)

Hi Camw. I hadn't noticed yet, thanks for the nod. Of course you may use as much of that draft as you like to work with, though I see I only got as far as gathering my references and not much writing got started before I suddenly became a bad wikipedian. By all means help yourself, and I'll be glad to offer eventual suggestions afterwards underways and perhaps qualify as a joint DYK effort? Unfortunately I am away from home for another week and the first five reference books are unavailable to me ATM. Cheers, deMURGH talk 13:30, 31 May 2012 (UTC)
Thank you! My own reference books on Italy are minimal but I'll see what I can find in my general books and online this weekend. A dual DYK is a good idea, although the last time I looked over there after creating an article I got scared off by their new processes! Camw (talk) 16:25, 1 June 2012 (UTC)
Hey guys, sorry to snope in. But I agree it would be a great time to get an article going for this truly notable producer. I have a few Italian wine refs and may be tempted to open up a bottle of Aldo Conterno this weekend at a tasting I'm attending so I can snap a pic. As for DYK, if we work on the article in userspace and one person moves it over by creating an entirely new page (instead of a page move) than another person can nominate it for DYK without having to go through some of the hoops. AgneCheese/Wine 17:23, 1 June 2012 (UTC)
No problem Agne, the article Murgh has drafted is at User:Murgh/Aldo Conterno. I'm trying to add some additional information (but as mentioned, without having many specific Italian references available) and any assistance (especially a photo, as I've already looked and can't find anything decent with an appropriate license) would be great! Camw (talk) 18:05, 1 June 2012 (UTC)
I didn't know about any new DYK rules, but if I understand you correctly Agne, the smart thing is to copy/paste the text into Aldo Conterno instead of the move like one used to do. I'll have to peek at these hoops. Good luck and steady hands catching the shot ;) deMURGH talk 18:52, 1 June 2012 (UTC)
My search on Flickr actually ended on one pic that was permissible per WP:FLICKR but the blurriness really not to live with. Not a sober photo[2]. I've sent a few mails to the other rights owners of nicer pics about changing the license, so maybe one will respond. It has happened. deMURGH talk 21:12, 3 June 2012 (UTC)

Hi Murgh, do you think we can move this article into mainspace? I know it isn't perfect, but I think it is good enough. Camw (talk) 00:38, 31 July 2012 (UTC)

Sure. Do you want me to copy/paste it then rather than the simple moves that we used to do? I never grasped the reasoning behind the new way of doing things or how it changes anything for DYKnomination.. deMURGH talk 07:45, 31 July 2012 (UTC)
I was always under the impression that a normal move was best as it preserves the history and contributions, I might leave a note with Agne and see if they can explain. Camw (talk) 10:15, 31 July 2012 (UTC)
So I think I finally caught on to the DYK issue and went ahead with the move and also put it up on T:TDYK. Feel free to suggest other hook ideas, I may have rushed it a bit this morning opting for the curious factoid. deMURGH talk 21:22, 4 August 2012 (UTC)
Thanks, looks good to me! Camw (talk) 09:30, 5 August 2012 (UTC)

Saint-Émilion classification[edit]

Hello you old Bordeaux nose! :-) Since it seems that the 2012 version of the classification is now finalised (see Decanter) - barring any new legal turns of course - are you interested in updating Classification of Saint-Émilion wine? If not, then perhaps I will do so when I have the time. Regards, Tomas e (talk) 09:36, 9 September 2012 (UTC)

Hello Tomas. Yes, that looks like a fun update, I'd be happy to go a little deep into it one of these days. deMURGH talk 16:40, 9 September 2012 (UTC)

User:Murgh/André Dominé[edit]

Hi Murgh, are you still working on this? greetings--Symposiarch (talk) 12:35, 1 May 2013 (UTC)

Greetings Symposiarch. No that is long time resting, please go forth and use anything you can find useful. Cheers, Murgh ( (talk) 14:01, 1 May 2013 (UTC))

Ornellaia update[edit]

Hi Murgh, some time ago I updated the Ornellaia page addiong some sections about all the Ornellaia wines and the climate in the area. I wee that everything was removed, could you just let me know why all the updates have been removed? I would just need to better understand criteria in order to provide more useful information. Thank you so much,

SimonettaSimonettar (talk) 14:48, 27 September 2013 (UTC)

Hello Simonetta. It was necessary to remove this edit on sight because there were entire phrases that were copied exactly from the Ornellaia website, and as per WP:COPYVIO we cannot use such text on wikipedia. It needs to be rephrased, in a neutral language, and have a source from a reliable source, described in WP:RS. Hope that helps. deMURGH talk 16:47, 27 September 2013 (UTC)

Gianfranco Soldera - Case Basse[edit]

Hi Murgh, I found your Case Basse page and tried to fill some gaps by using a recent source. I am sorry if I used the wrong procedure (I am rather new) and feel free to undo my additions if you don't like them. In any case I think you did an excellent job and it is ready to be published. WG Wine (talk) 13:25, 5 March 2014 (UTC)

  • Hello WG wine. Thanks for your additions. Except maybe for a sentence I would try to phrase a little more "encyclopaedic", I like what you did. and it does look close to ready move into outside wikispace. I'm on holiday ATM but once home in a few weeks I can put a few touches to it and publish. Cheers, deMURGH talk 08:56, 8 March 2014 (UTC)

Hi Murgh, great! I look forward to seeing the article on Soldera published, have a good holiday. WG Wine (talk) 10:54, 10 March 2014 (UTC) Hi Murgh, what happened to the Soldera's article? I thought it was excellent and ready to go. WG Wine (talk — Preceding undated comment added 09:59, 22 January 2015 (UTC)

Hi WG. Sorry I forgot or never found that evening to make it current or presentable. And now near a year has passed and I'm just about to go on my winter vacation again. Please feel free to tweak and move it into wikispace if you want. deMURGH talk 00:11, 23 January 2015 (UTC)

Hi Murgh, I have fixed the last paragraph which was not ready and I will now move it to wikispace WG Wine (talk) — Preceding undated comment added 09:34, 8 April 2015 (UTC)
