Wine Producers, please contribute your opinions and remarks to my next book, "Climate Change and Wine: Re-mapping the World's Vineyards", by completing the SURVEY. Thanks!
I have been writing about, editing, publishing, tasting and judging wine since 1989, before editing Vintage International Magazine in Paris in 1995. As a student in Paris in the late 80s, I was thrilled to discover that there was more to wine than my previous flirtations with Gallo Burgundy or Boone's Farm's Tickle Pink. Unlike my fellow students in California, my Parisien peers were sipping Richebourg and sporting cravates whilst dancing the night away at Castel’s. I much preferred the latter and so remained. It took me a while to figure out that there were other things to do with wine other than drink it. That said, I still drink far more than I write. Here, it is my intent to celebrate the traditional (but never boring), the indigenous, and the terroir-driven wines ... the wines that speak to us, with passion, of the place from whence they come.
