The New Wine Blogs
It has been a while since I did survey of new wine blogs, recommending those that I like and believe have potential. No better time than the present. I’m partial to wine blogs that update on a fairly regular basis and have an original voice or an experienced voice.
NO BULL GRAPE
An engaging blog that goes beyond just reviews and ventures into the wine business and consumer consumer concerns. Started in July and just getting going.
A wine blog mainly focused on reviews, and substantial ones at that. I’ve enjoyed their democratic approach to reviews, moving to wines from a variety of states.
Born in January, Crushing Grape offers a combination of posts and podcast. They are trying to keep it simple, delivering good, basic information for those learning about wine.
The product of an Ohio wine retailer (Chateau Pomije) with a good eye and a pretty good pen too. I’ve enjoyed their tasting roundups quite a bit. Begun in June
BLOG AU VIN
A project associated with the Fine Wine Press and some of our best wine writers including Michael Bettane, Thierry Desseauve and Fabian Cobb. GREAT reading.
AUSTRALIAN WINE SOCIETY
Blogging about Aussie Wines from Toronto, Canada. You’ve got to love the Internet. This blog works for anyone interested specifically in Australian wines. They taste the same in Canada as they do anywhere else.
Pretty interesting stuff and a wine blog that’s been around a while. The main focus is on Australian wine made from the slightly more obscure varietals.
THE CORK AND DEMON
A truly fun wine blog to read by a Texas Gal who describes her writings as: "A Smartass South Texas Wine Blog." Well, it’s more with good, engaging personal views.
