Quick plug for the Association of Small Direct Wine Merchants (http://www.asdw.co.uk/), a band of 20 internet-based merchants attempting to flog a diverse range of wines to the unsuspecting UK public. They've put together a remarkably professional magazine called Grapestalk (available free from their website), and in an age of consolidation and a retail market dominated by fewer players, let's hope merchants like this, who can deal with small parcels of interesting wine, can thrive. My only question is, if any members thrive and are no longer 'small', will they be asked to leave? ;)

I have been reading your blog for the past few weeks and have really taken an interest in what you have to say. I look forward to the new posts each time they come out. I am writing because I thought you might find some interest in this. A few days ago I stumbled upon this video blog http://tv.winelibrary.com/ and really enjoyed it and thought you and your readers would too. Keep up the great work!

You know, given that this is a retail site, and forgiving the American fixation with points, this is actually a pretty well presented site - the boy done good. He seems to spot that high end Chilean wines just don't cut it. Credit to him.

Thanks for pointing us out here to the ASDW site. It and the Grapestalk pdf were both of interest
