I'm a writer who likes wine.
Don't worry - I'm not going to torture you about tannins. I'm a writer, not a critic. And observing and reporting has never tasted so good.
Jersey wines are my mainstay. Just now as I typed that I imagined some reader gasping in shock and clicking off this blog, nose in the air. But, the fact is, wine is becoming as prevalant a passion among suburbanites as it is among sommeliers. The age of wine snobbery is over and the era of the local winery is here - especially in Jersey, where small wineries can now ship their product directly to consumers.
This blog will feature the wines I love drinking, the wineries I love visiting, and the characters and culture I run into along the way.
So, grab a glass and come along for the ride.
