PR is a gift, not a given ~ and I can’t say that enough

Date: Thu, Jul 1, 2010 Wine Tasting

When you want publicity, put your best foot forward, do the best you can – always, and someone, somewhere will get it. Don’t expect everyone to get it, though, and don’t take it personally when you can’t inspire a writer. It’s not about you; it’s about him or her. Some writers just “get it,” and [...]

How do you feel about plagiarism ~ Is it worth getting in a twit about it?

Date: Wed, Jun 30, 2010 Wine Tasting

DMCA (Digital Millennium Copyright Act) exists; although it’s on the owner to police his or her own words, and then take action. I’ve heard some wine bloggers say that they don’t care if they’re information and images are used elsewhere on the Internet; others aren’t appreciating it at all. I’ve written about being aggregated; now, I’m writing [...]

You won’t believe how many more Portuguese grape varieties I’ve found! (Part 2)

Date: Mon, Jun 21, 2010 Wine Tasting

Image via Wikipedia First of all, I can’t believe how many of you were interested in the original blog posting about how many grape varieties there are in Portugal. Secondly, the re-tweeting of this one was immense. I’m totally surprised by the interest beyond my own. (Thanks!) Now, Part 2… The bottom line is that I’m now adding [...]

Father’s Day Wine, Celebrating with an important father, son, and grandsons

Date: Fri, Jun 18, 2010 Wine Tasting

On June 15 I read on line, “On June 18, Robert Mondavi’s birthday, friends and fans from around the globe will gather to celebrate his passion and vision by raising a glass and sharing the stories that created his legacy.” When I wrote what’s below on June 12, I had forgotten that June 18 is [...]

Portugal has more indigenous grape varieties than any other country in the world

Date: Thu, Jun 17, 2010 Wine Tasting

That’s a pretty big statement, but I’m finding that it’s true; and, it’s almost become some sort of OCD project with me… “Portugal has more indigenous grape varieties than any other country in the world.” “Surely I can find them all,” I thought. “Okay, I’ll take it on.” First learning about Portuguese wines from Enoforum, in the [...]

Summer Reading, wine books are in and I’m lost in their pleasures

Oldman’s Brave New World of Wine, by Mark Oldman First of all, I have an advance copy of Mark Oldman’s new book, so it won’t be until September that this for sale. You can pre-order it, though, if you just love Mark Oldman’s writing, like I do, so you get it as soon as it’s [...]

Did you ever notice that New Zealand is an upside down boot?

Date: Tue, Jun 15, 2010 Wine Tasting

How come nobody ever talks about New Zealand being an upside down boot? Okay, so maybe it’s a small boot with a leg warmer, but it’s got it going on. Everybody talks about Italy being the shape of a boot, but poor little New Zealand is down under, which means that it’s really right side up for [...]
