Wine Business Monthly’s September Issue ~ How companies grow their business online

[PHOTO: Purchased. All rights reserved.] I was shocked, as I looked at the number comparisons between how small companies and mid-to-large wine companies participate, with their online promotions. I didn’t anticipate the disparities. It’s in the September 2021 issue, of Wine Business Monthly’s “technology & business” section. I’ve made my passion and living by advocating […]

The Show Must Go On ~ VINEYARD ECONOMICS SYMPOSIUM – ONLINE WEBCAST

Today, adaptability has never been more important. Because we all have no idea when the pandemic will just be a memory, we must all think about how our events are going to happen in the future. As I was listening to a story about how third world countries are struggling with this pandemic, I realized […]

Vineyard Economic Symposium Helps Us To Adjust

Near and dear to my heart, since I’m near – and so are the deer – in my back yard… the California wildfires of 2017 and 2019. When I looked out our glass back door, this is what I saw. Although this is a purchased image, my sight was a bit worse and a lot […]

Beaujolais, A Shared Passion, by Georges Duboeuf

WINE BOOKS Some wine books you can’t put down. They’re exciting novels that are edgy, a bit naughty at times, and sucking you in ~ every second ~ for “more.” High voltage… Then there are other wine books that are slowly savored, in sound bites. Remember the days of getting ready for a book report? […]

The Vineyard Economic Symposium ~ Half a Day’s Worth and I Was Running to My Computer

This is a wine blog, not a trade magazine, so my take of Wine Business Monthly’s ~  Vineyard Economic Symposium ~ is really that of being a fly on the wall, not to get the best investment strategy. The room  was full of economists, not my average American wine clients or audience. I had to really shift my thinking […]

Top US Wine Companies from WBM’s ~ My own Top 7 from this list

When I got into the wine business in early ’93, I knew (pretty much) nothing about wine. And so I worked it and studied it; and I expanded it, when I created the Petite Sirah wine grape advocacy group called PS I Love You. It’s through this group that I’ve learned firsthand about the following […]

Do you care about creating your perfect wine blog title?

Creating your perfect wine blog title is an art… and a science. Jose recently turned me onto my SEO functions, and I began to use them. I stopped using things that I though were ‘sexy” titles. Part of me was feeling, “Whatever, if search engines pick up my stories, then I’ve done my job.” The […]

An Impatient Publicist©

“An Impatient Publicist” will be the name of my book, when it’s published, because I am she. I’ll have my soap opera Cheesecake in the Vines buried in there somewhere, because it’s too good of a story to be left unwritten, and I’d like to develop these characters of intrigue. I didn’t write about the […]
