The Wine Blogging Community Is A Joke, Part Two

    Back at the beginning of August, we generated a bit of controversy here (imagine that!) with my rant commentary on wine blogging, titled The Wine Blogging Community Is A Joke (But It Doesn’t Have To Be That Way). C’mon, with a nice, restrained title like that, who would’ve anticipated controversy?… Much commenting, sharing, linking, and discussion then ensued.

    Wine Reviews: Weekly Mini Round-Up For August 25, 2014

    So, like, what is this stuff, anyway? I taste a bunch-o-wine (technical term for more than most people). So each week, I share some of my wine reviews (mostly from samples) and tasting notes with you via twitter (limited to 140 characters). They are meant to be quirky, fun, and easily-digestible reviews of currently available wines.

    Well, That Was Easy. Not. (“The Once And Future Of Crete” In August 2014 SOMM Journal)

    My feature on the wines of the Greek isle of Crete is now available in the August 2014 issue of SOMM Journal. That twenty-two word sentence belies what has to be one of the longest paths to seeing something published that I’ve ever had to walk. Not that the folks at SOMM Journal / Tasting Panel were difficult to deal with; far from it (they have been a pleasure to work with, actually).

    The Wine Blogging Community Is A Joke (But It Doesn’t Have To Be That Way)

    During the recent Wine Bloggers Conference in Santa Barbara, I performed one of the more self-serving actions of my entire life (and that’s saying something, right there). During Corbett Barr’s keynote speech, I clapped deliberately and loudly when Barr told the conference-goers that the wine blogging community needs to do more to work together and foster community.

    Same Old Song (Ridge Lytton Springs Recent Releases)

    “We sing the same old song Just like a vintage car, You can look, but you won’t ever drive it. We drink the same old wine From a brand new jar, We get hung-over, but we always survive it.” - “New Song” by The Who Some tasks are just… unenviable. Take, for example, trying to say something new about iconic California producer Ridge that’s not already been said.
