Blogs of note
First rule of blogging: little and often. In a quick review of those blogs that have made it onto my blog roll, I was horrified to find that some have been updated as little as once a month. Others seem to have understood how to do it a bit better, though.
Some that I really enjoy:
Bertand's www.wineterroirs.com is awesome, because of what he covers as much as how he does it. Really super selection of wine growers reviewed here, with great photography.
Thor Iverson keeps his blog updated and is always worth a read for his thoughtful commentary and good taste in wines.
Angry Alice has another well-updated, intelligent blog that I enjoy reading. I think she'd be even better, though, if she focused more on what she liked and vented less spleen on what she disapproves of. But I guess this gives added spice to her writing.
I always enjoy Clark Smith, and his interesting take on winegrowing, winemaking, wine science and technology.
Tyler Colman is emerging as one of the leading US online winewriters and he's always worth following.
Eric Asimov's The Pour is probably the best read of all wine blogs because of his position with the NYT. And it's great that for someone so prominent, he has such a great taste in wine.
These are just a few of the great wine blogs out there, so apologies to any that I didn't include in this short list. Next time.
