There’s a lot of fun to be had when you’re working with–and writing about–wine. But here’s the thing: you will, quite simply, never know everything there is to know about wine.
What that means for this wine writer is that I am continually turning to the experts. Fortunately there are a few great bloggers that offer terrific tips, behind-the-scenes tours and tasting notes. Here are a few of my favorites.
Alder Yarrow has been wine blogging since 2003. Essentially he was a wine blogger before wine bloggers were wine blogging. Lucky for us, Alder really knows his stuff, offering thought-provoking interviews with up-and-coming vintners, detailed wine reviews, travel information, news and event listings. Vinography.com is the real deal, and if you want to impress your friends with your wine intelligence, start here.
Joe Roberts is one wine dude I trust to give solid info in a way that anyone can understand. Plus, his reviewing system doesn’t use scores. He offers straightforward, knowledgeable impressions of the wines he tastes, making it easy for you to determine if it’s a wine you’ll like.
Fast, easy-to-understand info on an array of wine topics make this my go-to when I want to see what the wine people are talking about. Its wine forum offers monthly topics for wine lovers to discuss, and is open to anyone. Whether you’re a newbie or an aficionado, Wine Lover’s Page offers something for everyone, every time you visit.
