DLW13 approaches – with some love from Jancis Robinson

In case you missed it, Jancis Robinson mentioned Drink Local Wine in her recent Financial Times column about the revolution in U.S. wine that she and Linda Murphy chronicled in their new book, American Wine: The Ultimate Companion to the Wines and Wineries of the United States.

Someone’s watching me!!

Robinson’s column touches on many of the points she made in public appearances during a recent U.S. book tour, including a discussion I moderated at the Smithsonian Institute’s National Museum of Natural History. Yes, we tasted American wine under the thirsty gaze of an African elephant.

The mention was especially gratifying as our fifth annual Drink Local Wine conference is only a few days away – this weekend in Baltimore. After shining a light on the wines of Texas, Virginia, Missouri and Colorado in past years, this year we are spotlighting Maryland.

And there’s more exciting news: With the help of DLW President Michael Wangbickler and his colleagues at Balzac Communications, we’ve launched a new DLW website. This will help us continue to fulfill DLW’s original purpose, to spotlight writing about local wines throughout the United States.

Even more exciting – the Grand Twitter Taste-Off at Camden Yards this weekend is sold out, a testament to the excitement Maryland wine drinkers feel for their local vino. It should be fun.
