We are pleased to announce that Deborah Parker Wong, DWSET has joined the Team at Wine behind the label and will be primarily responsible for looking after the California and Pacific North West sections of the guide. Being on the spot in San Francisco, it is certainly going to help us in keeping things up to date and discovering those new kids on the block who deserve recognition. You can read all about her vast experience as a wine journalist on http://winebehindthelabel.org/meet-the-team/ Welcome Deborah. Deborah will also be instrumental in producing a wine, food and travel guide of the West Coast of America, which will be published by us in the coming months.
Congratulations to Nils Bugge on the fastest perfect score in our January quiz. The hardback version of the Guide will be on its way to you soon. Congratulations to runners-up Jon Beale, Tushar and Narendra, who will receive the digital version.
On the blog front we continue to be amused by some of the stories we come across, from a 107 year old wine drinker to the banning of wine at a diplomatic lunch! Check out the stories on http://winebehindthelabel.org/category/wine-news/. I have also posted up some thoughts on finding value for money wines. See my blog page http://winebehindthelabel.org/blog/value-for-money/
There are lots of other things in the pipeline – watch this space for more news.
In the meantime – happy drinking, happy eating and happy travelling!
