Wine Author and Teacher Karen MacNeil Will Deliver Keynote Address at Wine Bloggers Conference

During our early years of Wine Trail Traveler, we were starving for wine knowledge. Stumbling on a television broadcast, Wine, Food and Friends, we watched attentively as Karen MacNeil led the viewers through a gentle wine education that was also entertaining. We kept searching for other broadcasts in the series. Kathy and I have been […]

Wine Bloggers Conference Just a Month Away

This year’s Wine Bloggers Conference returns to the east on August 13th – 16th in Corning, New York. The conference attracts not only wine bloggers, but also wine writers and authors.

Sagrantino Is not Sangiovese

In our second book, A Wine Tourist Guide Visiting Tasting Rooms, we wrote a chapter about wine misconceptions and myths. Arnoldo Caprai Winery in Montefalco, Italy sent  us two misconceptions that plagues their tasting room. Many visitors believe Montefalco is in Toscana (Tuscany) when it is really in Umbria. The region Umbria does share a border […]

Keynote Addresses Come Up Short

The Wine Bloggers Conference is one of the few conferences we attend that have two keynote addresses. Some of the conferences we attend do not have keynote addresses.

Wine Bloggers Conference Spotlights Oregon

We have made several trips to wine regions in Oregon. The Wine Bloggers Conference takes place in Portland from August 16th to the 19th. After tasting many Oregon Pinot Noirs, I have a favorite. Archery Summit’s (over $100) Pinot is clearly my favorite. I did notice that Archery Summit will be pouring some wine at […]

August, a Lot Going On

There’s a lot going on. During July, we went full drive on completing our first book. The book centers around a wine journey. The journey involved wine education classes, winemaking at home and at wineries and wine travel. In addition to the manuscript, we have had the book edited. After editing, I created an InDesign […]

Restaurants and Local Wines

The topic of should restaurants serve local wines is of interest to restauranteurs, diners, and wineries. A long article in the Napa Valley Register focuses on this point and has received numerous comments. The situation is focused on Napa Valley restaurants and makes comparisons with restaurants in France and Italy. Local wines and restaurants are […]
