There are many, many websites of wine news and opinion. In the past, I’ve occasionally posted stories I think are of great interest. With the launch of my new site, I want to do more of that. In the past I had a blog list but find I’d rather pick and choose the really good stuff to share. I’ll be your wine news editor, if you will.
These are largely stories about issues I’m familiar with or just find interesting.
I’ve heard vineyard owners talk time and again from Michigan to California, to Oregon about labor issues. Here is one of the best stories I’ve read on the topic form the Sacramento Bee.
This item caught my eye because it’s about Evening Land winery in Oregon. In the previous blog post I wrote that Evening Land Chardonnay was one of the best wines I tasted at the Mar. 7 “Pinot in the Windy City” event in Chicago. This Wine Spectator story is about change at Evening Land.
Millennial marketing is another interest of mine. Any time I see a story detailing the efforts of the wine industry to lure new, and specifically, younger wine drinkers I’m intriqued. Here is a great story on that effort from the San Francisco Chronicle.
And finally here is a voice you should be familiar with if you’re really interested in wine, Steve Heimoff. He has written for Wine Spectator and Wine Enthusiast. He tackles interesting topics and presents them in a clear manner – not always present in the wine blogosphere! This column is a bit geeky for the average drinker but of interest to some. Read Steve’s take on multiple-vineyard Pinot Noir.
