Does the world need another wine blog?

After blogging about beer for three years at The Beer Wrangler, I was often asked why beer and not wine? This might seem a strange question, but those who know me knew I was spending vast sums of money and much of my spare time (not much with a full time job and baby girl) learning about wine. I had started my  3 year part time WSET level 4 Diploma, as well studying for my Court of Master Sommeliers certification. It would make much more sense to write about the subject I was studying morning, noon and night.

Well craft beer became my escape from my studies, my down time and palate cleanser… oh and I love good craft beer, but that’s another story (well, blog anyway!) In September last year I finally passed the WSET Diploma (I did the CMS Certified Sommelier 18 months before) and could really start enjoying wine without the pressure of study and exams.

So does this answer the question: does the world need another wine blog? The answer is absolutely not, but I will start one anyway! I hope that it is interesting to at least one person other than me, and I would love any thoughts from other wine lovers, amateur or professional (I don’t discriminate!) as all are welcome.

  1. No problem, I’d be happy to. My Girlfriend is studying for the level 1 as well as the level 2 Certified exam in June so I’m well placed!

  2. I’m in desperate need of a wine blog. My ‘decision process’ in a wine shop or cold beer ‘n wine is as follows :

    1. Find the reds.
    2. Does it have a cool label ?
    3. Is it from what is probably a prestigious wine-producing country ?
    4. Is it between $12 and $20 ?

    So yes, I could use some advice. A lot of advice.
