Date: Wed, Jun 30, 2010 Wine Tasting Winery Blogs Wine Business

“I almost named the wine Serendipity because I discovered the technique which produces this wine by pure accident.” This is a story that I’ve been chomping at the bit to tell for months.  It’s the kind of story that makes you excited about the influx of talented, young winemakers in the Napa Valley, who are [...]

Brave New World (or “Do We Really Need Wine Experts Anymore?”)

Date: Mon, Jun 28, 2010 Wine Tasting Winery Blogs Wine Business

Just over one month ago, I was quoted in an (excellent and well-written) article by Spencer Bailey of the Columbia Journalism Review, titled “Everyone’s the Wine Expert: Wine critics and bloggers, professional and amateur, are mixed up in a social media web.” At the time, the CJR article was (rightfully) the subject of interesting and [...]

Getting Crushed (at the Wine Crush Blog)
