My 10 Most Compelling Wine Blog Posts of 2013

top10 If you have even the most partial of sentimental bones in your body, you begin to reflect towards the end of the calendar year. And here we are. December. 2013. I got to thinking. What were the most compelling posts of the year on this blog? I looked the number of comments and the number of page views and the number of links to the  250-odd  blog posts that showed up here in 2013. Below are those that were, by this measure, the most “compelling” to readers.

As far as I can tell, there is little rhyme or reason.  We have 3 posts on “natural wine”. Two posts on marketing wine or vines. Three posts concerning the wine media. One post on Napa Valley. And two posts with numbers in the title. Go Figure.

Of these ten, my favorites are “Impressions of the Natural Wine Movement” and “Unsubstantiate: Millennials, Wine and the Meme”. They are excellent examples of both thoughtfulness and arrogance.

    Quite a collection of commentary. One might even call it a “body of work” or a “bundle of Wark”.

    Impressive, and believe me, in this era in which blogging is simply less interesting because most topics have been hashed over too many times. you have managed to have fresh things to say

    Well done.
