Wine Blogging

    • Seven years of wine writing on the Internet

      The Wine Curmudgeon has the best job in the world — I get to drink wine and write about it for a worldwide audience that appreciates what I say and regularly tells me so. I’ve won awards and I’m respected in a way I never was in my previous writing careers, and it’s not like I didn’t have successes then.

    • Slogging along in the wine blogging world

      My friend Steve Heimoff just wrote: Wine bloggers: Blogging, or slogging? Well, this week it’s more like slogging for me, versus wine blogging.

  • 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…

  • My Wine Writing Philosophy

    … This Thursday marks the beginning of the 2014 Wine Bloggers Conference, the first professional wine writing conference I’ll have attended. This is professional wine blogger behavior, right?
