EeeThe spring issue of Edible East End will hit the streets later this week, and this is particularly fun for me because it marks the debut of my new column "East End Oenophile."

Once they update their website with the new issue, I’ll be sure to point to the piece, which will always focus on interesting Long Island wines and wine industry happenings.

This issue has a lot of great wine writing in it actually, with a two other features on the local wine world.

I am also doing a column for Edible Brooklyn starting with the spring issue. We’re calling the Empire State Oenophile and while it will have a similar focus in terms of theme, every wine in New York State is fair game for that one. Again, once their website is updated, I’ll post a link to the story.
