Weekly roundups of the latest wine headlines.

Latest Wine Headlines: February 26—March 4

Hello all and happy first weekend of March! I can’t believe how fast this year is already flying by. One personal project I want to highlight this week is a podcast that was recently released in conjunction with the Green Wine Future Conference coming up this May. I’ll be moderating the session on Regenerative Agriculture. In the meantime, the conference is publishing a series of podcasts that correlate to session topics. Listen in to my piece on Regenerative Viticulture as I interview Jason Haas of Tablas Creek and Richard Leask of Leask Agriculture on the topic.

I’ve one more piece of exciting news that I will be sharing with you all later this week. So stay tuned on that front.

In the meantime, I’ve go loads of news listed for you this week, including how the food and drinks industry is supporting Ukraine, discovering wine in the ‘metaverse,’ and a couple of very well written opinion pieces as well. So enjoy. Talk soon!

My weekend vibes…



Latest Wine Headlines: February 12—18

Hello my people and happy weekend—happy long weekend for those who may have the three-day due to President’s Day on Monday. What is up with me, you ask? Well this weekend, I’ll be moderating the Rhone Rangers Experience in Paso Robles. Looking forward to seeing folks I haven’t seen in awhile, making some new friends, and of course tasting some fabulous wines.

What else? Oh yes, I’ve started teaching WSET classes, most recently at the newly created Odyssey Wine Academy. It’s so wonderful to share the knowledge and passion I’ve acquired over the years through my studies with fellow wine enthusiasts.

Alright, that’s all of my selfish news. You can find the real news below. Enjoy!




Latest Wine Headlines: January 29—February 4

Hello my people and happy weekend. I’ve got your weekly newsy round up for you, featuring a lot of fun stuff. I’m particularly in love with this new NY restaurant concept. And have totally bookmarked this wine-with-soul-food article.

On a personal note, I’d love to share a bit what I’ve been working on. Coming up next week, Wine Industry Network is hosting its annual (virtual) leadership conference. I’ll be moderating the session about Wine Business HR. Registration is FREE. I also just finished recording a podcast for the Green WineFuture, along with Jason Haas (Tablas Creek) and Richard Leask (a man with MANY talents in the viticultural sphere) all about—you guessed it—regenerative agriculture. You’ll definitely want to listen in on the podcasts leading up to this one. Ours will be released in just a few weeks (episode 6).

At the end of the month, I’m moderating the 2022 Rhone Rangers event seminar “Rhone Essentials.” Tickets are still available. This is an in-person event, so if you’re local or in the area the weekend of the 20th, pop by! There’ll be a Grand Tasting and you’re sure to see yours truly wandering around and sipping some of my favorite wines.

I’ll also be judging at a few local wine competitions, including East Meets West (let the battle of the coasts commence!) and the Foothill Wine Competition (definitely looking forward to some interesting wines). Stay tuned for winning results.

And if that’s not enough, I’ve taken my first steps to becoming a WSET educator. More to come on when and where.

That’s all from me. Hope everyone is safe, healthy, happy. Don’t be shy, drop a line. Cheers.
