The Chesapeake Bay Wine Classic Foundation’s November 10-12 Wine Classic

Every year, I’ve heard about The Chesapeake Bay Wine Classic Foundation’s  wine classic. It’s one I’ve never attended; however, I’ve heard glowing reports for a very long time.

Bianca Bosker’s “Cork Dork” Book Signing at Silverado Vineyards

I’m in the middle of reading Bianca Bosker’s “Cork Dork” right now and loving it, said she with no doubts that I’ll also write a review for it. Recently, a review in a major newspaper had a review of the book, and it wasn’t anything like what I’ll be writing. I’m writing from inside the […]

How Do You Feel About Wine Cans?

Wine Cans ~ First and Foremost Waxing poetic from my own experiences of pitching the concept. As a PR person, I’m finding that wine writers haven’t quite bought into the concept yet, except – that is – for the early adopters. But… BIG but… this is normal and typical for how new concepts – in […]
