Eee_spring08Edible East End is probably my favorite local print publication. Each of its five issues each year are packed with great stories and information for lovers of all things local on Long Island.

Unfortunately, my column "East End Oenophile" is no more, but fear not, I’ll be writing feature stories for them instead, which is much more interesting anyway.

For this month’s issue, my lone contribution is some tasting notes from a visit to Bluepoint Brewery’s tap room, which run along side a nice piece by James Held.

This issue also welcomes Channing Daughters Winery’s winemaker Chris Tracy as a regular contributor with his "Winemaker Wonderings" column.

Other wine-related pieces include a one-pager on Corey Creek Vineyards’ 2007 Gewürztraminer (always a LENNDEVOURS favorite) and an interesting feature article on Pindar Vineyards/Duck Walk Vineyards. It really speaks to some of the history behind Long Island’s largest producer.

I also think that it might allude to some of the coverage I’ve given the winery in recent years, but that could just be my ego talking.

You can pick up a copy of EEE most anywhere out east, or visit their still-improving website.
