All day Tuesday, they came to the Grand Cru wine bar with swollen red eyes, hugging one another and trying to make sense of the loss of a good friend and boss. They lifted a glass and reminisced about Nelson Carey, the genial and worldly publican of Belvedere Square, whose Grand Cru has been a popular destination for a decade. Mr. Carey, whose European-style wine bar and patisserie was more than a home away from home for an eclectic and devoted band of regulars, died early Tuesday of heart failure at Greater Baltimore Medical Center.

Bacchus & Me: Adventures in the Wine Cellar, by Jay McInerney (Vintage paperback, 278 pages, $13). For a dozen years in the 1970s and 1980s, I wrote a weekly newspaper column on wine while earning an honest living editing editorial pages and opinion columns. It began largely because in the early 1970s my fellow editors at The Philadelphia Inquirer and I could not find a syndicated column that we trusted. Already a serious enthusiast, I learned a lot, had a great deal of fun and continued to find that though there was a swiftly increasing tribe of wine writers, few of them offered much in the way of delight.

It's probably safe to say that Elaine de Kooning is as well represented in Baltimore right now as she ever has been anywhere. There are 76 paintings, drawings and pastels dating from 1942, when she was 24, to 1988, the year before she died, in two shows: a retrospective at the Maryland Institute College of Art and an exhibit at the C. Grimaldis Gallery.They are nicely complementary. The retrospective covers her entire career, while the Grimaldis show concentrates primarily on her last and best period -- the works of the mid- to late 1980s based on her visit to the prehistoric cave paintings at Lascaux, France.

The Washington Opera's current production of Richard Strauss' "Ariadne auf Naxos" is almost pure magic: beautiful sets, insightful direction, wizardly lighting and solid singing make it as good as anything you're likely to see on stage this season."

Riesling is all about balance. This wine walks a tightrope between sugar and acid. Too much of either and it becomes either overpoweringly sweet or mouth-puckering sour. Yet when the balance is right, it is a pleasing wine for summer - an excellent companion for cold seafood, spicy salads, even barbecued ribs. As I sampled 18 foreign and domestic rieslings recently, I found many that fell off the tightrope, and several that succeeded. rob.kasper@baltsun.com How they fared Favorite Foreign Albert Seltz 2006 Vin D'Alsace Mittelbergheim, France 13 percent alcohol by volume, $16.99 Local distributor: Bacchus Importers Lean and clean, this pale white from Alsace had crisp, subtle fruit flavors.

The Baltimore Choral Arts Society opened its 37th season over the weekend by celebrating its raison d'etre - and 20 years of leadership from Tom Hall. The program, a re-creation of his first with the ensemble in 1982, contained two works that reflect on the power of music and music-making, and music's patron saint, Cecilia. Never mind that the historical Cecilia lived centuries before the birth of Western music and may have had little or no musical inclinations. Somehow, she became associated with the art form and inspired both the poetry and the music performed with considerable affection and polish by the chorus Sunday afternoon at Goucher College's Kraushaar Auditorium.
