Welcome to my latest installment of Wine Writer Confidential, where I spill, thrill and chill you with all the news unfit to print about my world of wine writing.
Nous Sommes Tous Stockholm…
I don’t know about you, but I’m tired of ‘checking in’ on my wine writer and wine maker friends worldwide via social media. This week it was Sweden.
It’s always the same. News flash: “A terrorist attack in [fill in international city] has killed [fill in the number] via [fill in the method.]”
Heck, I’ve even been caught up in it myself (Paris – November 2015.)
I guess terrorism strengthens ‘virtual’ bonds in some strange way. But I’d rather ‘check in’ for a positive reason…
The Hedonistic Taster
Yep, binNotes | redThread™ series The Hedonistic Taster is indeed back, taking samples, and kickin’ tasting notes.
My favorite part of the series? Sharing small-production, artisan wine makers often overlooked by the mainstream wine media with you.
Yes, it’s a labor of love. So why do it?
I do it for the same reason you read my notes – because we’re thirsty for authentic voices of the vine. Parched for pours that don’t just slake our thirst, but capture our imaginations, and stir our souls.
Cheers, and thanks for your appreciation for wine as art, not just beverage.
“Wine brings to light the hidden secrets of the soul, gives being to our hopes, bids the coward flight, drives dull care away, and teaches new means for the accomplishment of our wishes.” — Horace
