From time to time we receive requests to write about wineries or vineyards. Travel is not often an option so beginning in 2012 we started writing articles after conducting interviews either by telephone, email or in some cases in person. These wineries/vineyards occasionally send samples of their wines, that we taste and write about. We believe that we still capture the winery's story by interviewing the owner or winemaker. It is expected that the number of virtual visits will increase in the future.
