reports on â€œwine from around here.â€
So where will you be able to find these scintillating and fascinating reports, you ask? They will be linked at DrinkLocalWine.com,
the Web site â€œWine Curmudgeonâ€ Jeff Siegel and I created last year
for the first Regional Wine Week. Bookmark it and return throughout the
week (and afterwards!) to see what new articles have been posted. Then
you can discover some of the underground wine writers who are
chronicling your local wine scene. If you’re a Washington Post reader, you’ll find my feature on Loudoun County, Virginia, wines in Wednesday’s Food section.
Jeff and I will also try to remember to update our Twitter feeds
