Can you just not get enough about wine? We feel like that sometimes too. If you’re looking for some more in-depth and in-the-know info about wine and the world of wine, we thought you’d enjoy these three blogs we also like. But just remember that we also like to keep it simple about wine and so we’ve created an easy to understand guide to enjoying wine.
If you’re ready for something deeper, try these three wine-related blogs out:
Vinography – Vinography.com
Alder Yarrow is a San Francisco high-tech consultant and wine geek who runs Vinography, perhaps the Web’s most popular and comprehensive wine blog. Like many bloggers, he’s obsessed with what he calls his second career. “Instead of watching TV, I blog,” he says. “I believe telling stories about a wine helps remove it from the realm of high status where all we know about it is the price.” In addition to Yarrow’s wine writing, Vinography includes his restaurant reviews. For instance, he raves about the duck and quince salad, the ravioli—and, yes, the wine list—at Quince in San Francisco. It also features links to articles in magazines, newspapers and other blogs.
Dr. Vino’s Wine Blog – DrVino.com
Dr. Vino, a.k.a. Tyler Colman, really is a doctor—he wrote his doctoral dissertation at Northwestern University about the political economy of the wine industries in France and the United States. After teaching political science for two years, he settled into full-time wine writing and education. On his blog (a part of the Dr. Vino Web site), Colman intelligently explores the intersection of wine, politics and business. For example, he recently explained—in clear, compelling terms—how the Costco case before the Seattle federal district court could lead to an even bigger dismantling of the three-tier wine distribution system than the Supreme Court’s recent decision on interstate shipment of wine.
Veritas in Vino – AliceFeiring.com
The wine and travel columnist for Time magazine, Alice Feiring uses her blog to share her thoughts on everything from biodynamic winemaking to pairing wild ramps and red Burgundy. In her mission statement, she writes, “I’m looking for the Leon Trotskys, the Philip Roths, the Chaucers and the Edith Whartons of the wine world. I want my wines to tell a good story. I want them natural and most of all, like my dear friends, I want them to speak the truth even if we argue.”
Don’t forget, wine may get fancy, but wine can also be simple. We’ve designed this FREE GUIDE just for you so you can grow in confidence each time your order or buy wine.
