Bio-picAs we prepare to move to a new Web platform and site in 2010, the New York Cork Report is seemingly ramping up its coverage of New York wine. As of today, we again have a correspondent based in New York City, Andy Freedman.

NYC foodies already know Andy (or should) as half of the husband-and-wife team behind the prolific site Wined & Dined.

Andy has lived in New York City since 2004. A corporate attorney-by-day and avid
eater, drinker and food blogger by night, Andy fits right in with the other obsessed food-and-wine geeks at the NYCR. Andy is passionate about all things food, wine
and craft beer.

A self-proclaimed “hop head”, he has been
exploring the world of sour beers of late. 

In October 2008, Andy and his
wife Jill launched Wined & Dined, to chronicle their eating and
drinking exploits throughout NYC and surrounding areas. 

Andy enjoys
grilling on his terrace, watching sports, traveling to wine regions in the U.S.
and abroad and spontaneously wandering the streets of NYC in search of good food,
drink and fun. 

Andy and his Jill are frequent visitors to Long Island’s
wine region and have also visited several wineries in the Finger Lakes and Hudson
Valley.  Abroad, they have visited Bordeaux and the Douro Valley wine
region of Portugal and hope to make trips to Chile and Argentina soon.

For the NYCR, Andy will be covering NYC-based urban wineries and events.
