The New York Times is probably the newspaper in the U.S… if not the world, so you can imagine my surprise and happiness over seeing this blog mentioned in its pages earlier this week (just saw it online this morning).
Howard Goldberg, writer of the every-other-week column "Long Island Vines" recommends LENNDEVOURS as one of the websites people should use to check in on Long Island wine country, saying:
published by Lenn Thompson, whose day job is in Internet marketing. It
is reached at www.lennthompson.typepad.com.
Mr. Thompson has a good palate; his tasting notes are usually on
target. Though clearly a cheerleader for local wines, he doesn’t
hesitate to criticize."
Over the years, Mr. Goldberg and I haven't always seen eye to eye — on particular wines, on the role of blogging in the larger wine discourse, and a variety of other issues really — but I'm honored to be included in this column.
Thanks for the mention, Howard.
