New Directions

More than three years ago I set off on a quest to demystify wine for the average consumer through this blog. I answered questions, covered basic winemaking topics and threw in a little tasting or MW studying here and there. People wanted to know what a day in the life if a winemaker was so I spent a year writing about what was going on in the vineyards and winery. What I came to realize, after a year, is that I was writing about the same things the next year with minor tweaks depending on the vintage. Then I had a baby and changed jobs. This refocus of my life meant I had to neglect my writing for a while due to the age old excuse that there wasn’t enough time in the day. So here we are again, a little over a year from my most viewed post regarding why wine should not be compared to toilet paper. Not a terribly deep subject but an entertaining one nonetheless. I think in some way a fellow wine blogger of mine was correct when he (and I would give him the credit here if I could remember who it was) wondered aloud if we (the wine bloggers) were really all just talking to ourselves.

Anyway, now I find myself at a crossroads. Do I continue down the path that I have followed since March 1st, 2010 when I published my first post or do I take a new direction? I would like to open this for discussion to you, my readers. What do you want to read about? Who are you? Should I be covering more in depth winemaking information? More geeky vineyard stuff? Feel free to comment and let me know the details that Google analytics cannot. The future is in your hands!

  1. Since you asked, I’m Craig. Your father introduced me to your blog a long time ago. I enjoy reading all the wonderful topics you have covered. I am fine with whatever direction you plan to take with the site. Even if it’s only once a month I hope you continue to write as I enjoy reading your posts!

  2. Nova, I love reading about the day-in-the-life topics. Especially now that you have a crazy impressive job at Mondavi. Learning/reading about 2013 vintage and beyond at Mondavi would be great!
