Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!

Each year, once our family is about to have our Thanksgiving meal, we like to first say why we’re thankful.

I, like most of you, have a lot of thanks for the people who have a great impact my life. I’m going to try to include you all here. This is just a snapshot of how many people impact a wine publicist and wine blogger’s life… It’s larger than I could have ever imagined… If I’ve forgotten anyone, I apologize. It’s not intended.

On the personal side, I’m thankful for my family and friends, who bless me with their love, year after year.

On the blogger side, I’m thankful for the 433,004 unique views of this site… That means YOU, dear reader. I write it and you find it interesting enough to read, for whatever reason known only to you.

Also on the blogger side, I’m thankful to those wineries who are sending their wines for me to taste from all over the world, expanding my palate opportunities.

I adore my friends on Facebook, too. Facebook has expanded my friend base in ways I would have never seen coming, just a few short years ago.

On the professional side, thanks to the many editors who aggragate my wine blog stories, because they find it worthy. And wine writers who find what I present interesting enough to publish stories presented to them of our clients.

Our clients make our merry-go-round spin… I’m thankful for the following owners and the people who run their companies. They’ve entrusted Jose and me to help them to present messages, for the past year. Where we would be without them, I do not know…
