Visitors may flock here to sip wine, but they end up drinking in the romance of the region, too.

And by a very green wine writer, I don’t mean “green” by experience; I mean green by social consciousness. Earth Day is this Sunday, and I thought that I’d not focus on green wines […]

The most important thing to remember with any list is that it’s subjective to the author, and it’s limited by that person’s experiences. I’ve heard a lot of scuttlebutt about Paul Mabray’s 9 Most Important Wine Bloggers in the US list since it was published; and it’s a good list, based on his experiences and […]


If you don’t want the truth, ask an employee ~ If you want the truth, ask a consultant, like Darryl Miller

Virginie Boone ~ Wine Writer 41 ~ Wine Enthusiast Wine Critic

Before Virginie Boone was working with Wine Enthusiast, she held her own as a wine writer. I first became aware of her at the Santa Rosa Press Democrat. Windsor, California is a bedroom community to Santa Rosa, so she was one of “our own.” When I had heard that she had been hired with Wine […]
