Happy Monday and welcome to Regional Wine Week, a first-time event put together by Jeff Siegel (The Wine Curmudgeon) and Dave McIntyre (Dave McIntyre’s WineLine) to highlight America’s great wine regions — the ones you might not know about.

Every week is RWW here at LENNDEVOURS, but I’m proud to be a part of this great program. Several well-regarded wine writers are taking part and I was honored to be invited to join the fray.

With RWW in mind, I’ll be doing at least one New York wine review per day this week. Keep an eye out for the first one later today.

I’d encourage you to visit the Regional Wine Week site and check out the other writers and the local wines they are writing about this week. There are great wines being made throughout the nation… not just in California, Oregon and Washington.
