It’s any writers dream/nightmare to be setting on a ton of material. I’m blessed/cursed in such a way right now.
For example, I have some great interviews with key Indiana winemakers for a piece on the ‘state of Indiana’ wine I promised to Palate Press last fall. Uhh hmm, that’s not finished.
I have a short interview with filmmaker Martin Schliessmann about his upcoming documentary on Indiana wine. Here is the blog post explaining some of that. The interview is for a future newspaper column.
Last week I visited Chicago and interviewed a number of prominent Oregon winemakers on the emergence of Chardonnay as the ‘next big thing’ from the state. That one is intended for Palate Press.
And, I have updates on a few things from a couple wineries that will make good newspaper column and blog fodder.
That same day I talked with the leader of the Provence wine region about the booming sales of Rose’ in America. That is a newspaper column.
Today, I interviewed Chablis winemakers, and ambassadors, Christian Moreau and Jean-François Bordet. We talked about Chablis tourism and selling Chablis. That’s intended as a good follow up to my last newspaper column on the basics of Chablis.
There’s more but you get the idea. It’s also nice to tease some upcoming material here.
About Grape Sense
I launched this site two weeks ago and still working on categorizing and labeling 600-plus blog posts from the past five years.
I have several Indiana wineries to add notes on for the link at the very top of the page.
The previous blog software did not allow a way for me to present quite a few magazine pieces, with photos, I’ve written for Madison Magazine and more. I started building that new page over the lunch hour today.
