USA Today, the nation’s newspaper, dropped at hotel room doors across
the land every morning, last week endorsed the regional wine movement
with a travel feature on 10 “local” wine regions
to visit. This is a great idea – if your business or pleasure takes you
to St. Louis, consider a detour to Hermann. Heading to New York? Linger
awhile in the Finger Lakes. Taking your family to Washington, DC, for
some American history, or Charlottesville, to see Jefferson’s
Monticello? Guess what? Wine country is just around the corner.
The article is also a tribute to Regional Wine Week and DrinkLocalWine.com, as Jeff Siegel and I were interviewed about emerging wine regions across the country.
