LENNDEVOURS in Mutineer Magazine’s December Issue

I'm happy to report that this blog has been named one of the 12 "Blogs You Should Be Reading" in Mutineer Magazine's December/January issue. This is the third issue that editor Alan Kropf has put out and it's unlike any of the other wine magazines out there. The magazine's tagline really says it all: "fine beverage…redefined" There is also a brief story about Finger Lakes wine (and Shaw Vineyards) that features my top 5 reasons to be excited about the region. Check out Mutineer Magazine and if you ever see it around, pick up a copy and I think you'll…

Then, I decided that I didn’t like that system and wasn’t sure what to move to. So, I moved away form rating/grades altogether. After all, I try to write reviews–you know, actual words–that…

Who are my daily blog reads?

People ask me all the time what other wine and food blogs I read. The short answer is "too many"…there’s just so much interesting content out there for any wine lover or foodie. But, with life as hectic as it is these days, I’ve had to pare down my daily reads — the blogs that I read every single day. So, I thought I’d share this list with you. Maybe you already read them. Maybe you don’t. If it’s the latter, check them out. They are well worth the few minutes of reading. So, in no particular order, I give…
