Writers

Writers shape what we know and how we’ll feel forever more; and in this case, it happens to be about wine. This page is dedicated to those who’ve not only been helpful to all of YOU, but they’ve also been very helpful to me in ways that I can’t even begin to articulate. However, it is because of them that I am where I am today… Celebrating these cherished wine writers with you all.

    Hello,

    We at Sorelle Winery would love to have one of your writers come out to our winery or just speak to us a little more about the winery. We are new to the wine world and are trying to spread the word about our winery. Sorelle is a small family owned winery in the Lodi Appellation. They produce small lots of Italian varietals. Sorelle Winery recently participated in the 2011 San Francisco Chronicle’s Wine competition and won gold for there Sangiovese and Bronze for their Primitivo.

    Please take a look at the website as it will give you more insight on the family that owns the winery and the wine.

    Thank you for your time,

    Hello, Ron,

    All of these writers are either on staff for magazines and newspapers. This is a guide for you to know who are the key players. A wine publicist, like myself, has these people in her or his database, and should make those invitations directly to each person for you.

    Best wishes with you new project. It’s always very exciting when a new company is launched. — jo

    “I feel very fortunate to be allowed to be working with and contacted by the crème de la crème on a pretty regular basis. This is always how I feel, when an Email, such as Marlene’s, just arrived.”

    Jo! I know this is how you feel whenever I write to you. Why not say it loud, say it proud? You could add my name to this list, as well. How’s Ronn doing doing these days?

  5. Jo Diaz says:

    He’s doing well, Ken.

    I was jut thinking about you the other day!

  6. Ken Sternberg says:

    Thanks, Jo. I think about you every day. All day.
